Sound Abuse - Oldschool Sessions #06 (2022)

We go from early Happy Hardcore to Oldschool Hardcore. Maybe it's the algorithm hidden inside of Soundcloud that gives the users of this platform the right music. Who knows. Or maybe it's sheer luck. As I'm not an internet expert, I'm not fully aware of how everything just happens. To me, it could even be little fairies sprinkling their magic dust all over the internet, and poof, everything just happens. But I'm happy for the magic dust being sprinkled: it gives me more fun, hours of pleasure.

The next mix is one done by Sound Abuse, and as the title says, it's focussed on the Oldschool. And this sixth instalment brings the heat. Well, I'm only guessing, as I've not encountered the previous five editions. But from just listening to the first few records, I know that this mix is tight. The tracklist is a thing of beauty, that has to be said.

Sound Abuse. That's the name of the DJ, but also what most people would say if they were to describe Hardcore music to others, if the people describing it weren't fans of the music. To me it's music from Heaven, and this mix has got the right tracks in them, of which most of them are forgotten, or not played, or just ignored. And the style these were made in, is highly underrated.

Check the tracklist out, and you'll see what I mean!

This is a more spacey sounding Hardcore. I don't know how else to describe it. If you would play it as part of a film soundtrack, it would be suitable in films such as Aliens, Chronicles Of Riddick, and more of these types of films (my mind has just gone blank, hence why I couldn't mention more). But it's more exploratory, if that makes sense.

Sound Abuse's selection is tremendously great. Yes, they are oldskool/oldschool anthems, but they are glorious. And not appreciated as much as they should. And when they were initially released, the hype was there, but it died over time. But we should revive them back to life, and get this spacious sounding Hardcore back!

A solid mix. And also free to download. It wasn't released especially for Christmas, but it's certainly a present... for my ears! I'm sitting here, in Heaven, and bopping my head and shaking my fat ass around. This is the music I love, adore, and grew up with. More of these mixes please. And if Sound Abuse has got more of these, I shall certainly check them out!

A great mix. Fuck it. Just crank up the volume and enjoy it as much as I have!
