Ophidian - A Decade Of Enzyme Megamix 2001-2011 (2013)


If you are a true gabber, you know Enzyme Records. One of the most notorious labels in the Hardcore scene, they've been pushing the darker side of Hardcore forward for many years. And whilst I was listening to a mix earlier on Soundcloud, I was thinking 'what is actually my favourite Hardcore track of all time?'. And I didn't have the answer to it. But what I did have is an album which I loved and played over and over again. And it was 'Enzyme Injection 1'. Released back in 2002, when the label was really touching base in a growing scene.


That CD is part of my huge CD collection, and I think that it symbols my love for the darker side of Hardcore. It does contain underrated records, ones I truly miss in some 'best of Hardcore' mixes. And guess what kind of mix I found a few hours ago on Soundcloud? Well, you won't believe it (I'm being extremely sarcastic now): a Enzyme Megamix, containing records from 2001 until 2011, mixed by the magician Ophidian. I consider myself lucky, after finding it.


What I didn't realise was that it is a megamix. A proper megamix. No fooling around by Ophidian. He goes full in! The mix is only an hour and a half long, but he crammed in so many, you won't even noticed that within a space of 5 minutes you listened to 5 records or more. But it's Ophidian, and he's a magician. And he can do it properly.


The mix is 5 years old, and I only discovered it. I am ashamed. But at least I'm listening to it now, and I do hope you have got an hour and a half for this. Because it's a masterpiece.

71. Ruffneck & Ophidian - A Decade Of Enzyme Mashup


The hour an a half have flown by. And it's an amazing journey. You would not wish for it to end, but it does. And when it ends, you get a mashup, one quality mashup. But all the 70 tracks before it will blow your mind. I knew the label excisted and that they released music over a decade, but the thing that amazed me was the amount of records I actually knew and love! And how dark they are, even if you compare it to nowadays music.


Obviously this is much better than Uptempo. This has more feeling to it, it generates more happiness to me. Ophidian, the magician, has made a wonderful megamix. But there's a sad side to this.


Some records are played too short. And these are the records I ADORE TO THE BONE. Like 'Apocalypse', ' Poison', 'Lost In Music', 'Cameltoe', 'Vengeance', 'System 5601', but the worst thing is the shortness of the greatest record released on this label: 'Soul Entrapment'. This was a record I actually had on vinyl, and the level of quality was beyond belief! This is still my favourite from this label. Wish this megamix was a bit longer, but then we wouldn't call it a megamix, would we?


I know he had to cram these all in. Still impressive though. 71 records in 1 hour and 31 minutes.


But all in all I can not complain. Ophidian has teased us all, and has made me want to go through my old collection and dig up those anthems. But 'Soul Entrapment' will be the first I will be playing out loud and let the whole neighbourhood hear it. And if they don't like it, I will devour their souls!


What else is there to say? A truly epic megamix by a wizard. If you dislike it, you are insane. Fact.
