Octopus Conspiracy Radio - Mix By Casketcrusher (2018)

I've been offline for about 2 weeks due to personal health issues, and soon I will be offline for a longer period of time. My health has not been great after my birthday, and I collapsed several times in the hospital due to kidney issues. But before we become a medical encyclopedia, let's talk about the music I've been missing throughout my sickbed. Normally I would review literally everything possible, but for now the doctor and family advised me to relax. Which I did. But now I'm getting slightly better, so I'm back.

One of the first mixes I listened to whilst recovering in North Middlesex hospital was a mix by Casketkrusher/Casketcrusher. You might be wondering why his mix was one of the first? Well, a simple reason being that I do love Early Hardcore, and it keeps me going. Hearing the standard top 40 whilst recovering makes me more sick. So Early Hardcore it was. And with Casketkrusher you know he will never disappoint. And with this guest mix for Octopus Conspiracy Radio he has selected again shitloads of unknown records! Don't know where he finds these anthems!

The tracklist is a beauty. 21 amazing anthems. So many forgotten, or simple never heard before. This might be the reason why I've recovered so quickly, compared to before. This should be on the NHS website: 'to fully recover please listen to Early Hardcore'. It has helped me!

Sitting here at home, enjoying a nice ham sandwich and a proper English tea (with milk of course), life is well. Health is slowly getting there, but for now the only thing which should be working are my ears, and they are working well.

Casketkrusher/Casketcrusher (however you spell his name) has done it yet again! Another brilliant mix with forgotten jewels! I've not heard these anthems in a while, or never before. I wish there would be an outlet on which we could just download the whole Early Hardcore back catalogue from all the artists, so I would know how much I have missed during the 90s. Mixes like this one show me that I've missed to damn much, and it's probably only the tip of the ice berg.

I can't point out a weakness of any kind. I can not underline the amount of love I've got for this DJ and his battle to keep Early Hardcore alive and kicking. He keeps on battling, and he keeps on winning over and over again. Worth checking out this awesome mix.
