Painbringer - Early Hardcore Goes Ibiza 2019 (Promo Mix)
Sometimes you go onto Soundcloud or Mixcloud, and your gut is telling you that you will find a really epic mix. Yesterday was such a day. I found a mix, focussed on the event called Ibiza Goes Hard, and this promo mix was played during the 304th edition of the Twisted's Darkside Podcast. And you have seen the image above, you know who made this mix: Painbringer. The one who is keeping the oldschool Hardcore alive. And you have got to give him credit for it.
Every die-hard raver loves the early stuff. Unless you are too young and do not have a clue that there's a music style alive since the early 90s. But don't worry: Painbringer is here to educate yourselves. In this mix he selected his favourite Early Hardcore tracks and a few forgotten classics. Those gems that everyone loved at the time, but got buried underneath the mainstream Hardcore tunes. And let's not forget: Painbringer's own music back catalogue. You are going to find shitloads of his productions in here. Now that's an added bonus!
It does contain a mix of old and new records, and even records I've not heard before. So this is going to be interesting. But worth while, trust me.

Now this brings back memories. Not bad ones, only good ones. This takes me back to the 90s, when I was a teenager and everything in my life was focussed on Hardcore. I lived, breathed, and basically was Hardcore. No-one could convince me that it was shite, for me it was everything. It was life. And Painbringer's mix contains those records that make me smile for hours. Thanks mate!
For once it's difficult to distinguish which record is an oldschool classic and which one is new. I reckon that Painbringer records are new, and the rest are old? It's difficult, because the sound is so alike! I know that 'The Point', 'Get Set', etc are oldschool classics, but the rest sound so similar. Not updated or different. That's what I like about artists such as Painbringer, Casketkrusher, etc. They keep the sound alive, and they do it well!
Best record? 'Stop The Rhythm' by Trickster. Banging record.
Painbringer, you are a superstar. Your mix is dope, and it has given me goosebumps from time to time. The only record I didn't like is the Pendulum remix of the Prodigy's classic record 'Voodoo People'. I find it the least creative remix of all time, quite frankly boring as hell. But I might be the only one.
A decent mix. Nothing wrong. This is the early Hardcore sound I miss. Give me more mixes like this. I much more prefer this kind of music over anything else! Thanks Painbringer for this awesome mix!
