Quosh Records - Bouncy Anthems! (2019)
Only a few weeks ago did I review a Sy & Unknown appreciation mix, and now it's time for the label they run, to have its own appreciation mix. Quosh Records, a legendary name in the UK Hardcore scene, had a lot of anthems released on the label. Not just by Sy & Unknown, but also by a lot of other excellent producers, such as Joey Riot, DJ Kurt, Ian Van Dahl, CLSM, Gammer, Technikore, and many more. The label released so many great hits, and they are still loved and cherished, many years after their initial release date. To me, it was the label with the biggest vocal anthems, but they weren't just the label with ONLY vocal anthems, also the more bouncier anthems too.
And Alex Threat made a mix with only bouncy anthems, released on Quosh. I thought this was a recently published mix on Soundcloud, but it's already three years old. Someone must have reposted it, and that's the reason why I'm now seeing this mix, and listening to it. Whoever it was, thanks! I really wanted to hear some Quosh Records, and now my day has been made slightly better!
I do love non vocal anthems, but when it's a Quosh Records anthem, I do prefer the vocally stuff, as they are 100 times better. More emotions are put into a song when vocals are added, especially female vocals. They just enlighten the song immediately. But that's not what we are getting with this mix. It's just the bouncier anthems, the uplifting stuff without anyone singing. Just the bounce.

Ooh, there are some great anthems in here, I completely forgot that they even existed! It's good to find these mixes online: you can reminisce and think of the good ol' days. And with Quosh, it is indeed the case. The label hasn't released anything in about a decade, which is a pity, as it was on top of the world, so to speak.
Alex Threat's mix is a good one, with a lot of slammers. The first record in this mix was a bit of a shit one to be fair, but after that one the hits just kept on coming.
Especially the songs which had Technikore on them. The sound he created back in the day was phenomenal! He gained many fans for his sound and his approach to UK Hardcore, and the two songs 'The Nerve Centre' and 'The City Is Mine' are certainly the best ones in this mix.
I still prefer the vocal records. Sorry, but it's my opinion. These bouncy anthems are cool, and worthy enough to be played at events, but the vocal stuff, nothing can beat those! I'm on the hunt now to find a mix focussed on those anthems. Surely it won't take long for me to find a mix.
