Thumpa - Celebrating 25 Years Of Mokum Records (2018)
Thumpa has returned! Not that he really left, but he has returned on Soundcloud with a slamming mix we were all hoping for! Thumpa has been known for his love of everything Hardcore related, and the majority of fans might know him from his Freeform enthusiasm, but the last couple of years he has moved toward the Dutch Hardcore/Gabber sound, and especially the early sound. The sound from the 90s. And that's exactly the kind of Hardcore I like. Can you see why I am happy to find another Thumpa mix?
This time he has come back with a brand spanking new mix, dedicated to one of the best labels of the 90s: Mokum Records. If you are a raver/gabber, you are definately aware of this label and what it has achieved during the 90s. It was an important label, which released some serious dancefloor anthems like 'Name Of The DJ', 'I Wanna Be A Hippy', 'Headsex', 'The Point', and many more. The good thing about a mix like this one is the fact that it shows me that there were more records on this label, some I have not heard in nearly 2 decades, or never before.
Thumpa's mix contains 42 brilliant records. And it's a 2 hour and 10 minute long mix. So you get everything you want on this boring Wednesday. Worth checking this mix out, yeah?

Tracklist and a half, eh? Thumpa doesn't do things half half, he does it properly. And by the looks of it,he purchased the whole back catalogue! And when I say whole back catalogue, I do mean it. He's missed out on a few records, so you'll probably see another mix coming soon, dedicated to Mokum. And for once that's a mix I'm truly looking out for impatiently.
As I said before, Mokum has produced some slammers over the years, and is still alive and kicking. But for me the 90s sound they released is simply the best. The sound is so unique and refreshing. But to be honest, no matter where you went, everywhere in the Netherlands Hardcore sounded good. Be it from Amsterdam, Rotterdam, or Rotjeknor. But Mokum has left a mark on our precious history. With banging tunes. And that is an understatement.
I would have gone for the Technohead tunes, especially 'Headsex', but after seeing 'Who's Afraid Of Noise?' by Ceasefire, that just instantly became my favourite record in this mix. God, haven't heard it for at least a decade! Don't know which CD it was on, but I played that record over and over.
Thumpa, you've made yet another astonishing mix. The people at Mokum should be proud, and as a fellow Dutchman I am proud. For an British person to make a Mokum mix really good, interesting, and intoxicating!
Genre/Style: Hardcore, Gabber, Happy Hardcore
