Original Dutch Style (2021)
Bank Holiday is behind us, how did we all experience a long weekend, eh? It must have been very good, or extremely bad. The weather was atrocious, but hey ho, you can't have it all, eh? The weather might have been atrocious, but at least we've got music to get us through the day. And today is probably your second day at work, so you are hanging on for dear life, to get closer to the weekend. You need something to boost your confidence and morality, and I think I have found the perfect mix for you all. Of course you need to love Dutch Hardcore music. If not, you are buggered.
As you all know, I am Dutch. Hence why this website is called 'TheCrazyDutchmansBlog'. And being Dutch gives me the advantage of liking Dutch Gabber a lot. The Dutch sound is what I grew up with, and not just the Dutch were good at making Hardcore, but today's mix is focussed on the Dutch sound. A distinctive sound so unique and so Dutch, you can tell it apart from other Hardcore sounds coming from countries like Italy, German, USA, and other countries.
The secret algorithm behind Soundcloud made sure I wouldn't miss this mix. I came across it this morning, and I just had to give this a go. Dutch Gabber is just ace, especially when it's the mid 90s style. The DJ behind this mix, J.O.E., has done a marvellous job in using wicked songs to compose this mix. But you are curious now which songs they are, right? Here's the list.

Da Hustlers - Time Limitations (Mister DJ Remix)
Mister DJ - Freakin' It
Chosen Few - Danica
Sonicdriver vs Wicked-E - Excited

Zero Tolerance - Big Rhythm
Cyclopede - Bad Motherfucker
G-Town Madness - Silence

The Stunned Guys & Darrien Kelly - Violet Skies
T.O.P.D.R.O.P. - Achtung! (Rob Gee Remix)
Neophyte - Happy Is Voor Hobo's
Beautiful tracklist, with a few records in here you normally don't hear. Some are forgotten, and some are played in each mix. But a nice all round diverse list, with Dutch sounding Hardcore anthems. Thanks J.O.E. for this, really made my day!
The mix is very good, but if we do have to point out something very disappointing, it's the length of the mix. It's only 45 minutes long, and yet within those 45 minutes we do get 23 records. Wish mixes like this one would be hours long. Once I'm in the zone, I want it to continue for as long as possible. You know, the mindset is just there, and I feel like a teenager again. Young, and full of passion and dedication for Hardcore. But that's not really a negative per se, right?
There are so many great anthems to choose from, but I have to pick this one record as my favourite because a) I haven't heard it in years, and b) it's such an underrated song. 'Sick S.O.B.' by The Party Animals! My God, I remember this being on a single back in the day, and I wasn't really interested in the main song, but more into this song, As much as I liked their Happy Hardcore stuff, the Party Animals made better Hardcore/Gabber songs. Like this one and 'The Misadventures Of The Spiegel Man'.
A wicked mix, and certainly one that made my day go quicker. Even though it's only 12 pm, I am full of energy, and can't wait for the weekend ahead!
