Science In Action 2 (2020)
DJ Virus is back with a brand new mix! If you don't know who that is, don't worry: I am here to tell you. Well, to be fair, I don't know much about him either. There's one thing I do know; he makes wicked mixes! All wicked Hardcore mixes. And no, I'm not talking about the Dutch Gabber stuff. I'm talking about the Breakbeat stuff. You know, the style that's got a lot of pianos in it. And it has Breaks and beats and bits. You know what I mean right?
Anyway, DJ Virus. I've reviewed a few mixes in the past. Especially the ones focussed on specific years: 'The Hardcore Years' mix series. A very successful and interesting concept, which has gained many listeners. But this man deserves more plays on Soundcloud, and I think his latest mix will gain a lot of new followers too.
You know I love my Breakbeat, and I am not the only one. Even though it was at its peak during the 90s and many ravers have fond memories of this kind of Hardcore music, it has become slightly more underground nowadays. The market has shrunken slightly, which is a shame. Breakbeat Hardcore any day, mate. It isn't as big as it used to be, but the music is still great, and epic. And for his latest mix DJ Virus has picked a shit ton of exclusives. Well, exclusive to me: I've not heard any of these before.
So here's the tracklist for those who can't get enough of Breakbeat, like yours truly!

I have to say, before you all get judgemental, I do know most of the artists, but not the music, alright? I am not a walking Wikipedia page. At least I'm acknowledging that the music exists, and I contribute by sharing this mix. Why, you might ask? Well, because the music is really great. And there's one track that has literally blown me into a million pieces.
OK, let's get right to it. Whoever Persons Unknown is/are, they have made a blooming epic record with '2020 Pianism', with a sick remix title. The first time I heard that first immense drop and I felt the windows trembling, I knew that the track was going to be something else. And surely it was something else. This piano driven track has got everything that makes it a wicked Breakbeat/Happy Hardcore anthem. Whoever is behind Persons Unknown, for you I take my head off.
But it's not only the 9th record in this mix which caught my attention. It's the whole mix. The selection is great, and carefully mixed together by DJ Virus. He certainly knows how to make it sound effortlessly and flawlessly. So you will get 68 minutes of pure Breakbeat heaven.
I can go on and on about this mix, but I am not. We've all got other things to do, so let's focus on other things. But whilst doing those other things, make sure you play DJ Virus' latest mix, and play it out loud. Trust me, you will be in for a treat!
Is 2020 the year of the full return of Breakbeat Hardcore? It deserves everything!
