Partyraiser Millennium Hardcore Set @ Ghosttown 2014

Don't you sometimes wake up, and want to hear a specific sound or style? Well, it's too early to listen to Christmas music, so I had to take the next best thing: Millennium Hardcore. The style that I grew up with, and absolutely adored. As many of you will know, after nearly 10 years of reviewing, I do love me a bit of early and Millennium Hardcore. I grew up with it, and still love it. Many have moved on to the present day Hardcore, but I just stick with the early and 2000 sound. Can't believe it's already so many years old! Time flies when you are experiencing COVID-19, right?

So, the next set I am about to share with you all is focussed on the Millennium sound. The 2000s, if you are too young to have remembered it. The years where we were wondering what the internet was going to bring. 20 years later the internet has become our lives, and has dominated literally everything. But thanks to the internet I am able to speak to you right now, and I can listen to excellent music every single day, without going to the shop, and having to buy albums. Not saying that I don't buy stuff, but you know what I mean. Instant music access, that's what's cool.

Partyraiser does not need an introduction. He's well known in the Hardcore scene, mainly for his love and dedication to everything rough and tough. And you get exactly that during his 2014 set at Ghosttown. This Dungeon of Delusion had a lot in store, but so did the Partyraiser. All Millennium Hardcore anthems. From the most well known anthems to the obscure, hard, and incredibly tough anthems. That's what made this set so damn good, and well listened on Soundcloud.

Now you are curious on what he has played? Here's the tracklist:

  • Angerfist - The Fast Lane

  • Lenny Dee & Radium - Who's Next?

Now to be fair, I've listened to this mix today more than humanly possible. That's because I had friends over, and I couldn't finish it. So I've had this on repeat constantly. So the stats might have gone up today, and that's just because of me. Couldn't care less if my friends liked it or not, I liked it. And that's all that matters.

Normally, when I think of Millennium Hardcore, I think of the more melodic and euphoric side of Hardcore. Partyraiser did use a few of those anthems, but the majority of the anthems were fucking brutal. Hard as nails, that man is. And it gives the audience a wide variety of records in this hour and 26 minute mix. It goes from OK to hard very early in the mix, but yeah, we did also like our records slightly harder around the Millennium.

Which records made my ears bleed the most? I have to say that it's Nosferatu's 'The Desolate One'. Simple, but yet truthfully effective. This gets any dancefloor to be blown into smithereens!

I really liked this set, and hopefully you do to. Enjoy Partyraiser during his 2014 set of Ghosttown, as much as I have. More of this Millennium sound please!!!
