Whistles And Horns 5 (2022)

Today it's Wednesday, and it's time for some Happy Hardcore. Why, is there a specific reason, you might ask? Well, the answer to that is no. No specific reason, it is just a day I find suitable for Happy Hardcore. And there might be another reason: I found this new mix by DJ Virus late yesterday, hence why I'm talking and thinking about Happy Hardcore. It would be weird if his latest mix wasn't a Happy Hardcore focussed mix, but it thankfully is. And now I've used the two words Happy and Hardcore a lot in the last few sentences. So what, who's going to stop me?

DJ Virus is certainly a DJ I've followed for a few months now, after finding an excellent mix he did (which was also a Happy Hardcore mix), and everything he releases/uploads, is seen by yours truly. And his latest mix is filled with gems, most of them I've not even heard before. All brand spanking new tunes, and all as happy as I am.

We've seen a few DJ Virus mixes in the last couple of months, but what makes this one different compared to the others? Well, it's focussed on songs which trigger the whistle and horns crew. The screaming fans, the noisy fans, the fans that make themselves heard. The UK fans are always the noisiest of them all, and at a rave that's a great thing. DJ Virus selected a handful of songs that might trigger you in creating noises in your bedroom/office/living room/car/wherever you are. And obviously a bit of cheese had to be implemented.

So which records did he pick? These ones:

  1. Shugstylerz - Doo Dey

  2. Haze - Mean To Me

  3. Horse & Piles - Oh My Gosh

  4. GavGStyle - Anyone Can Dance (90's Happy Hardcore Mix)

  5. Richter Party - Hardcore Is Heaven

  6. Gen - Knuckle Arrow

  7. Bodger & Badger - The Rebel

  8. Devil Licious - By My Side (Richter Party Remix)

  9. Tom Heist - We Are Forever

  10. Hysteria - Happiness Is Hardcore

  11. MJ Project - Edd's Generation

  12. Richter Party - Stay

  13. Vibes & Wishdokta - No More Tears (Haze 2022 Remix)

  14. Finch & Blumchen - Herzalarm

  15. Gen - Kamigoye

  16. Charly Lownoise & Mental Theo - Last Goodbye (Rave Mix)

  17. Ultra-Sonic & Dream Frequency - Feeling Alright

I feel like such an idiot, in my honest opinion. I feel so dumb. I went into this mix thinking it was all 90s Happy Hardcore anthems, but they are all brand spanking new! And I should have known, being a Happy Hardcore fan. Oh, the shame...

Yes, it's embarrassing but true. I thought these were all undiscovered tracks from the 90s, but they are new, and have got this distinctive 90s sound. And it's glorious. After I've encountered my own stupidity headfirst, I now know what this mix actually contains, and it has made me even happier, is that even possible?

This is a very happy mix, and it's been playing over and over since 7am. I am feeling the happy vibes coming through my speakers, and I feel enlightened. Hearing these new 'old sounding' Happy Hardcore anthems, it gives me hope. Happy Hardcore did not die after all in 1998.

I have to admit that seeing 'Last Goodbye' made me wonder: is this an unreleased song by CL & MT? I was a full on fan in the 90s, but never encountered this one. But it's a new song, only made public this year. Maybe for their final tour ever?

DJ Virus' mix is yet another great one. And it creates more smiles than ever before! More smiles, please. More happiness. More cheese. More of this! Can't wait for more whistles and horns!
