History Of Hardcore | Rotterdam Terror Corps | Vol.2 (2020)


I've been a busy boy today: I've been scouring the web for good music, and it got me to a channel called Hardisciples. And one of the first things you might have spotted in the image above, is someone wearing a diving outfit. Not sure what that has got anything to do with RTC, but who knows? They might have had female dancers on stage, wearing that? To my knowledge, the dancers always have nearly nothing on, so I cannot imagine them wearing this outfit. But I might be wrong, and that happens on a lot of occasions. I know there are people out there with weird fetishes, and I'm guessing this is a fetish some might find suitable for them...

Anyway, this is an appreciation mix, dedicated to the worldly known group called Rotterdam Terror Corps. You might have heard of them. If you haven't, you'll be in for a treat. A group so famous (or infamous), they have left an impact on the scene forever. Their legendary logo was on everything during the 90s: bomber jackets, t-shirts, hoodies, caps, keyrings, everything. They knew how to carry out marketing during a time when we didn't have the internet or social media. They nailed it. Hell, I even remember drawing their logo on my school agenda, my backpack, and everywhere I would find a empty space.


I have been a fan since 1995 (I believe), and have purchased many singles, t-shirts (which I still have one left, a long sleeved one, so worn down, it nearly evaporates when someone looks at it), and even special editions of CDs. You know those tins that came with stickers, chains, etc. I wasn't a fan because of the ladies on the stage, because that didn't do anything to me, but the music did appeal to me. I think I did witness them once in the 90s at the Peppermill in Heerlen, but don't ask me when it was, as I can't remember. But I've spent many of nights in the Peppermill, so I must have seen them, as they were nearly there every other week!


Now the band/group has released a shit ton of records, and if you were to make one mix out of all their records, the mix would be insanely long. So instead of one solid mix, you can find three mixes. So depending on how you feel, you can go for number 1, 2 or even 3. Or if you feel lucky, play them all, and let RTC take over your life, as they did during the 90s.

This tracklist did really hurts my wrists. Bloody hell, copy pasting didn't work, so I had to fully type the bloody bugger, and now my left wrist is fucked. Thanks RTC...


All jokes aside, the tracks are mostly solid as a rock. Some are a tad harder compared to the other, some are just 'jokes', bare jokes. Not tracks that will go down in history as the most memorable and most amazing Hardcore classics of all time, but just OK to stomp your feet to. And sometimes that's the only thing you need to do: stop worrying about life and everything in it, and stomp your feet until your feet start to bleed excessively.


Stomp your feet. And that's certainly what I did. Is this my most favourite part of the RTC era in the Hardcore scene? No. I do prefer the 90s and early 2000s stuff. Those were the most memorable tunes, without a shadow of a doubt. I'm not saying that anything released after 2000 is crap, but it's just different. Still hard as nails, and dope as fuck.


Some tracks are OK, some are freaking hard, some a bit too silly. Coolest one? Well, 'Stage Dive' is certainly one amazing record that gets me on the dancefloor every single time.


A nice mix with good records. Some tiny mixing errors, but nothing major. Maybe I should check out the two other mixes, maybe they are more my cup of tea? It is still RTC, so all is well. All is well in TCD land.


RTC, in the place to be!
