Lethal Theory Style Mix - 24-02-2019
Yesterday I was hugely disappointed, today I'm a happy bloke. Not only did I have a good day at work, I've been listening to a lot of wicked music on Soundcloud. It makes the four hour commute every day worth while. And also seeing my missus is an extra bonus. But let's talk about music, this is not This Morning.
I think it was a couple of months ago when I first discovered DJ Threat on Soundcloud. If I'm correct (and correct me if I'm wrong) he did a Scott Brown mix, or an Evolution Records mix. Which got a good review (never given a Scott Brown mix a bad review). Now he's back with a brand spanking new mix, focussed on Lethal Theory. The ground breaking label that shook people's heads during the early 00s and 10s.
If I'm honest, I have missed Lethal Theory a lot. I know Joey Riot has been busy with his Destructive Tendencies, but it's a shame, isn't it? Lethal Theory was the place to be for the best UK Hardcore and Powerstomp music. They were the originators of this 'new' style. And now they have disappeared. Maybe disappeared from my timeline, but I don't see much LT at all. It's a shame.
So when I spotted this awesome mix, I immediately smiled. Lethal Theory. DJ Kurt. DJ Joey Riot. I still have a signed copy of his back catalogue (the CD). So, DJ Threat's mix has to be good. I can't be disappointed 2 days in a row.
Time for the madness. Tracklist time!

This put a HUGE smile on my face! Who doesn't want to hear some Lethal Theory coming out their speakers? DJ Threat used the finest records by this label (and some I haven't even heard before) to compose this wicked tribute mix.
A wicked looking tracklist, but is the mix any good? It can be a hit and miss with tribute mixes: some are extremely good, and some are just made by bedroom DJs who admire a label, but have not invested enough time yet to improve their skills. DJ Threat's mix is spot on. Tiny errors, but I'm going to let them go by. Nothing to worry about.
I'm not a 100% sure that I've got the right record, but the record played around 57 minutes, isn't that 'The Rising'? If it is (or isn't), it's my favourite record of this mix. Fuck, who cares about the name, it's all about the music!
Get this down you right now! Let's relive the golden years of Lethal Theory!
