Outforce - 2021 Kick Off Mix
I can't remember how long it has been since I last reviewed a UK Hardcore mix. But it's been a while. It is not that I lost interest or anything, but I don't find many mixes on Soundcloud with a tracklist. And for this website it is mandatory. I always find it easier for people who want to purchase songs to find out which song it exactly is, instead of guessing. But thankfully I have found a mix a couple of days ago on Soundcloud, which already had a lot of good feedback, and a lot of plays. The mix I'm talking about, is a mix by DJ Outforce!
Maybe my algorithm on Soundcloud is messed up, but I do keep missing good music. I think I stumbled across this mix by accident, but a good accident it was. This mix might only be roughly 30 minutes long, but within those 30 minutes Outforce takes you on a journey through the wonderful world of UK Hardcore. Obviously jam packed with his own productions. And I'm guessing they have been released already, or might be released soon. If you know the answer, leave a comment below.
As I mentioned before, I've missed out on a lot of music coming out of the scene, so I'm not familiar with any of Outforce's latest releases. But only within a handful of seconds I knew I was going to be enjoying this mix a lot. A bit of everything, from the well known and much loved Done sound to the mighty Powerstomp kicks, all brought together into this wonderful mix.
A lot of plays this already has, and people seem to dig the tunes a lot. So let's dive right in, and let's start with the tracklist:
Kritikal Mass - Jorris Bhonson (Outforce vs Madsik Remix)
DJ Gollum - The Bad Touch (Outforce Remix)
Gabry Ponte x Jerome - Lonely (Outforce Remix)
Klaas - OK Without You (Outforce Remix)
Madsik - Soundflow (Outforce Remix)
Outforce - Star Crossed Lovers
Flip & Fill - Shooting Star 2020 (Outforce Remix)
Outforce - Break My Bones
Outforce - Light In You
Outforce & Hartshorn - Low Freaqz
Outforce - Like I Do (Remix)
Madsik - Navigator (Remix)
You might look at the tracklist and not get a clear picture of what this mix is about. But don't worry: there's a play button, so instead of focussing on the tracklist, why not just focus on the actual mix? And the mix is tight, and the records too!
As mentioned before, I've missed out on a lot, and seeing this and hearing this mix for the first time did make me smile, and ignite the spark again for UK Hardcore. I can't remember when I reviewed Outforce for the last time, but it's a long time again. So this is a re-introduction into his wonderful world. And I have to say that I am impressed with the mix, and the quality of the tunes, but I'm clearly not the only one.
I do love his production skills, and the tunes he has selected for this mix, are all amazing. However, I am not a fan of the Bloodhound Gang and their music. And hearing Outforce playing a tune with their familiar lyrics/vocals, just grinds my gears. I have got a hatred toward the Bloodhound Gang, as devastating as that might sound. I do love the fact that the rest of the track is ace, but when I hear that voice, I just turn violent. Can't stand it.
OK, enough with the small talk, which is the best record in this mix? 'Soundflow' by Madsik, remixed by Outforce. A lot of Powerstomp influences, and a wicked mid-section. A good build up. It has got everything I want to hear. This makes me happy.
A fantastic mix. Bring on 2021, fuck off 2020. You've haunted us enough. We need to get out into the world again, and start raving!
