Ultimate Happyhardcore Vol 2 ~ Various
hmmmm this is a difficult review to write simply because from a track listing point of veiw this box set contains no filler at all and your true "died in the wool" happy hardcore ravers will be foolish to pass it up...but. On a personal note this marks the end of real british hardcore for me... when it all stated to become dominated by techno 4 beat style unicorns and rainbows cheesey lyrics tracks it killed it for me. there are some truly outstanding bouncy monsters on here though that lean enough towards the above to be classed as "happy" yet retain enough grit to be classed as "hardcore".

CALLING ALL RAVERS! if you love old skool you have to have this box set in your life. there is not one track over the three discs that i would class as filler. forget all the "back to the old skool" type box sets this is the real deal, proper underground tracks that were played at raves not on the radio or local clubs. The older (and arguably better) stuff is on the first two discs, with loads of proper hardcore classics and broken beats. There is a diverse range on here too with smoothies like m d emm's "fly free" a real gem of a track with strings, vocals and a lovely jungle break, and techno bangers like m d emm's (again) "got any hardcore". A dirty rubber band kickdrummed four beat… Read more
