Millennium Kore (2023)
Started the day with a nice mix, which started with a few UK Hardcore anthems and ended the mix with some harder Hardcore anthems. That got me hyped up to the max, and got me eager to listen to some stuff from my youth (fuck me, it makes me sound old). And I instantly remembered, I have stored a mix under my favourites only a day ago, one that might grab my balls, gives them a spin, and punches my head hard. Don't know where the 'ball' bit comes from, but you get it, right? You know what I'm saying? Music can grab you by the balls... obviously in a good way!
And of course I go straight back to the Millennium Hardcore sound. The DJ of the mix in question, Fusco, has made a very interesting mix, with a lot of ear demolishing records. And according to a short description on Soundcloud, he's got good memories about the Millennium era and the sound Hardcore music generated. For me it's the same. Yes, early Hardcore might be the coolest thing out there, the originator, but it is the Millennium sound for me, that intensified my love for Hardcore music.
I have to concur whatever Fusco is saying. The style was just so dam good, and it was ground breaking. It was new, fresh, and well needed, after its initial death in 1998/1999. We needed a new approach to the sound, and henceforth came Millennium Hardcore. More adulty, more grown up. No fucking about, just pure Hardcore. But also still developing itself. Even to this day, the music is moving and growing. That's what makes Hardcore so great.
But nothing can beat the Millennium sound. And after a quick look at the tracklist, I know that Fusco's mix won't disappoint. He went into his record box, and got out the classics. The big boys, the big records. The records that took the world by storm. You will certainly love this mix!

You know it's going to be a great mix, when one of the biggest records of the Millennium was put in the mix. And you know which one I'm talking about, right? If you don't, you might be a bit too young to remember. But 'Demons' by G-Shock, remixed by Promo, has to be one of the most recognisable Millennium anthems of all time.
I was going to say, it's not all doom and gloom, but it is, in a way. The music was a tad darker and edgier, and I really like it. And Fusco's selection is truly great. It's got the big records by well established names, and also an anthem in here I truly find highly underrated. It had the potential to be the greatest song from the Millennium era, but it never became as big as it should have been. Any guesses to which song I'm referring to?
It is of course 'Evil Is Among Thee' by Virus. Brilliant track. Brilliant.
All the other 13 records are great too! This mix truly encompasses the Millennium sound. Millennium in a nutshell. And it's great. It brings back many memories.
Nothing, and I mean nothing, can beat the Millennium sound. Nothing.
Thanks Fusco for yet another amazing mix. And it's free to download too!
