Pample'mouss - Hardstyle Classic's Session (Part 2) (2017)

From Melodic House to Hardstyle. How can one morning be as diverse as mine? Well, it's because I'm a music lover, and not bound to one style or genre, and I am always happy just hearing music, no matter if it's 100 BPM or 1000BPM. But for today, let's keep the BPMs at an acceptable level, don't want to experience more heat in my office as we speak. It's already 20 degrees Celsius, a nice temperature, but surely the temperature will rise after you start listening to this mix. A mix filled with early Hardstyle anthems.

I was looking for more DJ Zany anthems, and I stumbled across this mix. That's how easy it was. Otherwise I would have never found this mix. Never heard of the DJ Pample'mouss, but from now on I will know of him, and will see if he's got more Hardstyle mixes on Soundcloud.

I wasn't great at college, and my French wasn't the greatest. But I think the text underneath the mix mentions early Hardstyle from 2000-ish, taken from vinyl and CDs. If I'm incorrect, please let me know, but I think I'm right.

Listening to some early Hardstyle mixes throughout the week, I was in need of some more. And I've saved a few mixes, and maybe I'll review them later this week, or never. Who can tell? No one, only me.

This mix contains 14 records, and you will surely love them. Early Hardstyle is always the solution to every problem. Headache? Play early Hardstyle. Going through a tough time? Play early Hardstyle. Are you sweating like a pig because of the heat outside? Play early Hardstyle. You catch my drift, yeah?

Which records did Pample'mouss use for this set? Well, these...

  1. Noisecontrollers - Shrump (DJ Tool)

  2. Zany - Animated Audio

  3. Noisecontrollers - Gaia 2008

  4. Mr Puta - Green Stuff

  5. Josh & Wesz - Overdrive O

  6. Toneshifterz - Can't Fail

  7. Showtek - FTS (Hard Mix)

  8. TNT - Double Dutch Darkies

  9. DJ Duro - My Style Is Dutch

  10. The Prophet feat Headhunterz - Scar Ur Face

  11. Donkey Rollers - The Fusion Of Sound

  12. The Prophet & Deepack - Stampuhh

  13. Donkey Rollers - Lmpsjnk

  14. Zany & The Beholder - Midnight

If you are into your early Hardstyle stuff, you will certainly love this mix. It's got a few of the biggest dancefloor anthems from back in the day.

Would I pick early Hardstyle over the current Hardstyle? Yes, I certainly would. The tracks from back then were much better. And sometimes borderline hard and rough, or more melodic, etc. It was still in its development stage, so more was possible. Producers were still finding the grounds to build the style onto. They did succeed, but what it shows to me that the early style was so fresh, the current style just build their presence on top of what was already awesome.

Or, in short, no need to amend it, as it was already epic.

Yes, they did implement some cheese into it. And sometimes it did work. Like 'Stampuhh' and 'Green Stuff'. Yes, they are cheesy as fuck, but oh so recognisable and so early 2000s.

Pample'mouss' mix is an interesting one. One that might reignite the spark, and get you back on the early Hardstyle stuff. I was already on it, but it has just made my eagerness for the early stuff explode. I need more early Hardstyle.

Cool tracks, but 'Animated Audio' is certainly the best. Early Zany stuff all the way!
