The Hardcore Years: 1993 (2019)


Happy Boxing Day everyone! Most of us received a lot of presents, and are looking to chill today. Or go absolutely ape during the sales, but whatever you do, you stay safe. Those that have stayed at home and didn't find it necessary to go to Ikea right now, I've got a nice mix. A mix made by DJ Virus, focussed on 1993 Hardcore music. And the reason why this is a special one, is because it's a super megamix. And when I say super, I do mean super: over 130 tracks in a 60 minute long mix. That's a minimum of 2 records per minute. Would you agree that this is a super megamix?


I was 10 years old in 1993, so I was too young to fully appreciate and understand music. I wasn't even aware of the majestic parties run in the UK. Don't worry, I have fully emerged myself into this 'lost' bit in my rave history, and have embraced it completely. I've been to several UK raves, but not during its heydays. The 90s, and especially the early years, were the best. The whistle crew, anyone? I've got hours of livesets, which were recorded during the early 90s, and they are really awesome.


During the 90s they all used vinyl, and I'm guessing that DJ Virus didn't use vinyl. If he did, he should deserve a medal. But I'm guessing he has't: how else can you cram in so many records in 60 minutes? I won't even be able to fully hear each of the records DJ Virus has selected. This is going to be an insane mix!

Christ Almighty! I have to re-type the whole mix, and my fingers are genuinely hurting right now. 132 records in a 60 minute mix. Half of them I have not even noticed! That's how quick this mix is! No joke though. You are a superstar if you can hear literally each and every record, and it would be more impressive if you knew every record.


DJ Virus' mix is a tight one. Really impressive stuff, if truth be told. I'm really impressed that he's done the unthinkable. I've had a blast, listening to these 1993 tunes. It was a magical year, wasn't it? For those who appreciate the early Hardcore sound, you will all say that 1991-1993 were the best years, and I fully underline that statement.


I'm fully aware of the music that came from the UK back in the early 90s, but don't know each and every record. During this hour long mix I came across shitloads of unknown records, and it made me a happy man. This fully ignited my early Hardcore spark. I need more of the early years.


Not being pedantic, but I don't want to typ anymore. I will let this mix speak for itself. Go and download this free mix right now. Thanks DJ Virus for a wicked mix. More of these please!
