Well i guess I’m back (of sorts). the last couple of weeks have been, to put it lightly, a bit shit. But as I’m now back to being a productive drone in society, i suppose it’s best to get back into the old swing of things. So let’s have a tune then shall we?
And for a tune, let’s keep it old skool, ‘cos when it’s ‘ardcore, you KNOW the score (ahem). Been spending tonight listening to some of those classic hardcore and breakbeat tracks that i was semi-aware of when i was 14 years old. And this one is one of the best, “Mentasm” by JOEY BELTRAM. I’ve played his other classic “Energy Flash” on here in the past, but this one was apparently the first to use what they called the “Hoover” synth sound (i remember hearing it first on early Prodigy tracks). It’s learn and hard, with a fuckload of sub bass on top. At the risk of sounding old (which i am close to becoming), they don’t make ’em like they used to.
