Millennium Hardcore 168 - 175 BPM (Part 3 of 4) (2021)
It is Sunday, Millennium Hardcore day. A day we can use to reminisce the sound which we miss a lot. This Millennium sound was and still is so damn good, you will find many dedication mixes online. One of those mixes came to my attention earlier this week, and it's by a DJ called Ravert. But there's a hidden bonus to this mix: there are three others! This one you are about to listen to, is the third of 4 mixes in this mix series. So if you were looking for more mixes, just check out the other three mixes, and I know for sure you will have your fix sorted, your Millennium Hardcore fix.
I have to say that you do need something hard and rough when you are doing chores. You don't want to do ironing in silence? Who does that? A psychopath would do that. And I know you are probably doing it early in the morning, so you can have a relaxing day ahead of you, but come on: you do need something motivational. Hence why I played this mix, and it got me through the day. No slow music or silence, just banging Hardcore anthems.
Ravert's mix is two and a half hours long, and contains 45 records. All by well known Hardcore producers such as Neophyte, Mad Dog, Catscan, Re-Style, Project Omeaga, Angerfist, Tha Playah, Tommyknocker, and many, many more. A lot of the tracks in this mix are well known ones. I would even go as far as to say that these are all known anthems, and much loved. And played at literally each and every Hardcore event around the Millennium. These were the anthems of our generation. And those tunes make me extremely happy.
But the main question here is obviously if these are good anthems. Are these the ones that can get you going? Do you get moist from hearing these banging tunes? Well, just look at the tracklist, and let me know:

This is a proper Hardcore mix, certainly one that will get you moving. If you aren't moving, what are you even doing? Why are you listening to this mix, eh? Tell me, tell me right now!
I have had this mix on all morning, and now it's going into the late afternoon, I am still enjoying these anthems. A good throwback to the Millennium days, when Hardcore was still extremely cool and exciting to me. Not saying the present day isn't exciting, but it's getting less and less appealing to me. I'd prefer the older sound. Gosh, I'm sounding just like my dad now.
All jokes aside, it's always good to get back to your roots. And with this mix you can go back in time. I remember seeing these on many MoH compilations, and hearing them at parties such as Raving Nightmare. Those were the days, and I still hold them dear to my heart. The sound was so ground breaking, fresh, and forward thinking. The earlier Hardcore might not have remained ground breaking as much as it should have been, but this Millennium sound remained its strength, years after the records were released. Powerful stuff, won't go amiss at present day raves.
Ravert's mix is a good one. Good selection of tracks. Good mixing, but maybe too eager and too 'sloppy' at certain stages. But it won't hide away your love for the Millennium sound, and it will certainly get you going.
I am going to name my favourite anthem of this mix: 'Nobody Said It Was Easy' by Evil Activities. A sing along song. Play it anywhere, at any given time, and everyone will sing along to this. No one will stay silent. Followed up by everything made by Tommyknocker and Noize Suppressor.
A good mix. Enjoy it!
