Tracksuits And Horns 2 (2022)
Last review of this week. Yes, it might sound a tad weird, but I'll be going back to the Netherlands with the wife for a few days, so I won't be able to be online. Technically speaking I could be online, but I can simply not be arsed. So instead of not doing anything, here's the third review of the day. One of the previous reviews was a Happy Hardcore one, and another one was an Early Terror one. How about we end today with a Gabber one? And one made by DJ Virus. You know him, right?
The title of this mix is 'Tracksuits and Horns', volume 2. Now, I love me a tracksuit. I am Dutch, for crying out loud. We all had one at one stage. Most Gabbers during the 90s lived in those. Horns I couldn't give a flying fuck about, but the tracksuits were life. They were a culture on its own. Now it's all about fitness and going to the gym, or trendy knobs wearing them, but for those Hardcore fanatics, it was life. And they were comfortable too. If you had to pick: jeans and a t-shirt or tracksuits? You clearly know the answer, if you've ever been in a nice one!
Now I'm familiar with the old Gabber sound, but not with the 'newer' sound. But over the years it's grown on me, and I've grown accustomed to it. It can never top the classic sound, but it sure as hell comes close. And in this mix DJ Virus decided to cram in the big ones. You might not have heard them before (as they are fresh and fairly new), but once you give this a chance, you will love it a lot. And I do mean a lot.

This is a wicked mix. And I'm not lying. I have been listening to this mix a few times now, and every time it makes me happy. Sitting here in my Gabber bubble, no one can harm me. And that's all we ever wanted. Our own world, filled with Gabber music 24/7.
This mix is tight. And a few classics in the making. They aren't old yet, but they will increase in value soon. Once the masses are aware of what these tracks can do, they will jump aboard this ship, and ride it like never before. It's really a wicked thing to hear music being made in 2022 with a hint of early Gabber. It's a great time to be alive.
It's faced paced, and that's the way I like it. Not a lot of sitting around doing nothing. On the contraire, my son. DJ Virus plays these tunes, to make you dance. You think you can take a breather? No no no. Why would you?
A seriously insane mix. I really enjoyed it. 21 amazing tracks, carefully mixed and selected by DJ Virus. A new name in my books who's Soundcloud channel became one I started following a long time ago, but only fully appreciated since I heard his Hard Cheese mixes. And now with this Tracksuits and Horns mix he's proven to me he can do everything. More of these please! They make me and many others very happy!
