Maynor @ Ouwe Stijl is Botergeil 13 - 02 - 2016
As you are familiar with my website, you all know that I'm an early Hardcore/Oldskool fanatic. I do love it, as much as I love Smarties (and boy, do I love them!). The other day I came across a remix of a record I had on a compilation called Earthquake, and it was a remix of 'Shaftman'. I quickly traced it back to the early 90s and tried to find it on Youtube or Soundcloud. And on SC it linked it to a mix I'd not seen or heard before, a liveset by Maynor, recorded back in 2016 at the majestic Ouwe Stijl Is Botergeil.
Now, I do like Shaftman for its quirkiness and stupidity, but when I saw the tracklist, it made me a happy bunny. Finally a mix with obscure records I've not heard in a while. No bullshit, just plain Hardcore to the bone. A bit of Hardcore, and a bit of Terror. Who doesn't want to hear that on a dreary Wednesday evening? I couldn't say no, seeing as it has two of my favourite things: Ouwe Stijl (which is an event I would really visit) and Early Hardcore.
You will understand why I'm hyped up, and anticipate this mix to be good. Just glance at the tracklist and you will see why this sparked my attention. How often have you heard these bad boys, eh? Mention to me the date you last heard any of these records, and if so, it's not that often. These are underrated classics, and a good selection by Maynor.
01. Raveman - Spaceman (1.9.8. Mix)
02. Riot Nation - Abba-Gabba (Speedfreak Mutterficker Massaker)

14. Johnfaustus - Putain De Francais
15. The Riotudder - Flame On The Brain
16. Deterrent Man - Gabba 4 Ya Mutha
See! I told you, didn't I? How often do you see tracks like these in mixes, eh? I've not heard these anthems in a while, and Maynor even surprised me with a few records I'd not heard of before, like the part 1 of 'Misadventures Of The Spiegelman'. Never knew there even was a part 1.
He selected obscure records. If I was there, I would have stomped my feet so hard on the floor, raised my hands so high in the air, and moved by body so violently, I would have burst open my hernia. You might wonder why? Well, there's a simple reason for this: I really like this music. To have selected these records for your set only gets you credit from me.
The set is only 43 minutes long, but still highly enjoyable. It does contain a few cross fading mistakes, but if you don't focus on those sections, the set is actually highly enjoyable (as I said a few words ago).
You cannot play a Early set without ending with some Terror, and that's exactly what Maynor has done. A good ending to a good set.
Check it out right now, if you like your Hardcore to be early, and underrated too.
