Just Stomp Vol 1 (2021)
It's been a fair few weeks/months since I last reviewed a UK Hardcore set. Well, that's not strictly true, I reviewed a Bonkers dedication mix only a handful of days ago, but a mix filled with new UK Hardcore anthems, I don't seem to hear a lot of them nowadays. You might have been waiting for such a mix in a long time, and I do apologise. Been caught up listening to other styles, but today's the day! Don't worry any more, today's a good day. And let me tell you why...
The reason being, it's jam packed with good tunes! Andy Myers' latest mix, which is called 'Just Stomp' might be confusing to you, as you might assume it's filled with Powerstomp anthems, but it's not. It's just filled with stomping hard tunes. And if you are into UK Hardcore, you will appreciate this mix a lot.
I wasn't ready for this mix. From the first to the last tune it took me on a ride. And if you are into UK Hardcore, you will enjoy this journey. Andy Myers' mix is really packed with awesome tunes by artists such as Darren Styles, Joey Riot, Marc Smith, Technikore, Shimamura, and many more.
I wasn't sure if I would follow the new sound UK Hardcore is going towards, but after hearing this mix I'm still pleased it sounds unique and refreshing, and not just sped up Hardstyle. It still remains unique, and true to the sound we adore.
So which tunes did he use for this 'stomping' mix? Well, here's the list:
Darren Styles & Ashley Wallbridge feat Gavin Beach - All My Life
4* & Tatsunoshin - Forgive
Nick Unique & Uwaukh - Into The Dark
Somma & Jennifer Rose - Stars Collide (Technikore Remix)
Quickdrop - Shake Your Body
Technikore, Weaver & Lokka Vox - Find You Now (Game Extended Remix)
Technikore - Another Day
Dougal - Take Me Away (Summa Jae Remix)
Dougal, Gammer & Squad-E - You U Eye I (J-Trax Remix)
Darwin & Jack In Box - Back 2 Basics (BK Remix)
Shimamura, Relect & Lindsey Marie - Northern Lights
Joey Riot & Marc Smith - Wait For You
Quickdrop - High Up In The Sky
AOS - On A High (Mr. Ripley's Rawr Remix)
Joey Riot & JaXx - Closer To All Your Dreams
Joey Riot & Seduction - Face Down Ass Up
Well, I wasn't expecting to hear such a mix on a Monday! And to discover one of the biggest tunes I've heard in a long time! But before we discuss good/bad records, let's focus on the mix itself.
I do love UK Hardcore, don't get me wrong, and I do appreciate the vocal stuff. The bigger, the better. And in this mix you can find a lot of melodic anthems, like 'Another Day, 'You U Eye I', 'Stars Collide', 'Closer To All Your Dreams', and my favourite record of this mix (and probably 2021) 'All My Life'. That's just a stunning record, and Andy's choice to open the mix with, is a damn good one.
I do love the diversity of this mix. It goes from the newer sounding Hardcore to the happier side of Hardcore, the older sound. Nice job, Andy.
The only negative is the last record, and the 12th record. Just simply not a fan of these. Sorry.
All in all a wicked mix. It gave me a boost I needed today! I need to hear more of this. I will certainly check Andy's site out for more mixes, and so should you!
