what's happened 2 hardcore???
on 19 November 2007
i don't understand what the producers are thinking these days...alot of people are saying the same thing over and over, but they're not listening to us!!! all the hardcore tunes over the last last year sound the same, the synths don't stand out from each other like they used to - bonkers 8 to 15 were the phattest box sets...ever...and every track on those CD's were memorable and full of feeling. the tunes on this newest bonkers, aswell as 16, all have that 'upfront hardcore' sound (that's what they call it anyway, i call it crap!) and also those annoying techno trax that really do my head in!!!
don't the DJ's ever listen to the old tracks and think ''what have we done to hardcore????'' i just don't get it. i can't even believe hixxy isn't featured on No. 17...what's all that about!!! i'm usually a fan of brisk and ham, but even their mix is disapointing. everyone seems to be making happy happy happy tracks now...where's the dark, weird tracks that everyone loved??? they just don't make 'em like that anymore!!! the only hope is kevin energy and of course lost soul (still disapointed in kev's mix with sharkey on this one though - 2 happy!!! should be like his mix on hardcore heaven 4!)
as for scott brown's mix...scott, what are you doing???
that's what i'd ask all the dj's actually.
if you want cd's that you will listen to over and over (unlike No. 17), then get bonkers 8 - 15...you won't be sitting there getting annoyed, but smiling instead! real core
dj's...sort it out man
