Thunderdome 2021 - Warm Up Mix By Jehuty
Before you comment, I am fully aware it is 2022, this year's Thunderdome already took place, and that we live in 2022, not 2021. And that the 2022 edition is actually the one that should have taken place in 2021, but due to restrictions they decided to move it one year. My Gawd, it's getting complicated now, but hear me out. It all makes sense, when you think about it. In short, I found this mix only recently, and it was dedicated to Thunderdome 2021, which never took place, but took place one year later... I'm losing the plot now...so let's focus on the mix instead.
Jehuty made this dedication mix, with a lot of new Hardcore anthems with the Millennium and Early Hardcore sounds combined, which makes it sound more interesting. I am still getting to grips of what the current Hardcore sounds like, and all its splintered styles like Frenchcore, Uptempo, and more. I am a Hardcore fan, but still cling on the older/earlier sound too much. Maybe I just don't want to grow up yet.
But I still gave this mix a go, and I'm certainly not the only one. 10.4k+ plays so far, And after quickly checking the tracklist, I knew most of the artists, so I decided to throw myself into the deep. That, what we call, Hardcore. Jehuty's mix is certainly one that would suit those people that went to Thunderdome. It's a good teaser and it's got a fair few wicked anthems in here.

I had this on in the car, on my way home, and the speakers were trembling. They were pounding so vigorously, I thought the car windows might break/shatter. Would it be worth it? Hell yeah. Hardcore can never be played at a volume lower than normal. It's MAX or nothing else.
Even though I'm an old school fanatic, I do appreciate the 'new' Hardcore more and more each day. And when the new tracks do touch upon the older records by taking snippets from them and updating them to the year of our Lord, 2022, it just makes it sound even better. And the bass is much, much better. It's deeper, harder, and rougher.
Obviously the best way to appreciate this, is to be at Thunderdome, and not sit in your car on the M25 around London. But, if you can't get to Thunderdome because it's sold out before you know it, the motorway is the best place to let the beats, bass, and melodies penetrate the chassis. And your eardrums, let's not forget those delicate eardrums. They will be fucked after this mix.
Jehuty's mix is dope. Carefully selected these 29 records, and wonderfully mixed together into a 70 minute long mix. And I wasn't a fan before, but I've certainly turned. Why? Well, it's still Hardcore, and it might be new, but still fucking rough and tough. And that's what I need.
I can't pick a favourite. Some are really dope as fuck, but there are too many to mention. So fuck it, no favourite today.
Genre/Style: Hardcore, Uptempo, Gabber
