The Themeless releases from the Dutch breakcore.nl site always have tracks that make it worth checking them out and giving them a few listens.
You can download their latest instalment “Themeless 6” as a zip archive or stream it straight from the breakcore.nl bandcamp page. If you feel like getting some more of that, check out the other releases too on bandcamp, like this Non Human one, which is your typical (yet good) jungle/ragga breakcore-type mayhem.
People email me links to their releases sometimes, and when they are free to download I tend to check them out. This one ended up somewhere way down my inbox because of life and being busy and stuff like that. However, this one is too good not to mention.
Check out the Abnormal Behaviour EP from Syk2ne. Took me a while before I got that name really. Anyway, it’s 2 hard drum’n’bass/breakcore tracks you’ll like if you’re into music from folks like DJ Hidden or Enduser. You’ll find more down-tempo yet equally glitchy and experimental electronica on his other EP’s Escape From Quarantine and Sick Man. He just released a new one on Battle Audio Records called The New Disease as well which is only €0.99.
Last but not least another free digital breakcore release on the Bitcrusher label, number 14 by BeK + WhiteRatBeat called Mask of the Shame. It’s glitchy, it’s fast, it has tons of samples and breaks, 8 bit crunchy sounds, ragga vocal snippets and the necessary breakcore humor with hard fucking beats in it. Oh yeah and it’s free too so why don’t you give it a shot?
Who needs record stores if you can get all this free stuff right?
Those Dutch gabberlads from The Outside Agency (aka DJ Hidden and Eye-D) are definitely one of the most interesting and innovative hardcore/industrial techno and drum’n’bass producers out there at the moment.
Since I’m not alone in this view, the Danish DJ Wavolizer has mixed together a 4 hour long mix containing only TOA tracks. 99 tracks in total. Not for the faint of heart I tell you. Download links and track listing are included if you follow the link. That file hoster is hosting some NSFW advertising btw so better have AdBlock running if you’re getting this at “W”.
As if this 4 hour mix isn’t good enough already, there’s also this mix with a bunch of remixes but not all because they forgot on or two up on their soundcloud page. Nice.
That should be enough hardness for this week I reckon.
Let it bang!

Just going to drop these two mixes for your summer BBQ parties. Depending on the people you have over to enjoy some grilled meat and alcohol with, I’m presenting you some different flavours (BBQ-style) so you can select the right one for your particular grill-fest.
For the more sturdy kind of BBQ, I recommend this mix from a lad called DJ Producer. He’s known for the rougher kind of techno known as hardcore techno. This particular set is one he dropped at the Bangface festival in Glastonbury in 2010. It goes well with lots of red meat and plenty of BBQ spicy sauce.
For the lighter kind of BBQ where a more soothing type of music is required for your meat-digestion needs, perhaps a mix by the gentle chap called The Teknoist is just what you need. Inspired by the legendary John Peel he mixed a rather excellent selection of Jungle tracks into one piece of continuous music. Goes down well with some fish and chicken sprinkled with plenty of BBQ herbs for that sweet neighbourhood smell.

Time for another hardcore overload. We’ll start with the awesome Outside Agency again (can’t fail there) with the Twisted Darkside podcast mix #112 they did for the Impact 11th b-day warehouse party (direct link & mirror). It’s a shorty, but it’s damn good. If you’re dying for more hardcore podcasts, well, that Twisted Darkside page is full of ’em, so I’m sure you’ll find something there.
In case you don’t, there’s always this one: a mix by no other than UK legend The DJ Producer for the PRSPCT XL 17 party (mirror). I don’t think I need to waste any more words on this. Lot’s of Hellfish & Producer in this one of course, so enjoy.
Now something I’m sure you haven’t heard of before. A Berlin based producer who’s been going at it for 10 years started a dark sounding electronic music project under the name RML_. You can download his first EP for free which has some cool, dark & hard techno at a bit of a slower pace so you can chill down from the previous mayhem posted here.

Shame on me!
I’ve been sitting on some sweet breakcore but didn’t find the time to share the awesome with you. So here it is, in a triple dose (sort of) to make it all dandy again.
The Dutch breakcore.nl site has brought out various breakcore releases at regular intervals, like their Themeless album series featuring lots of new breakcore talent. The range of breakcore variation on this albums is so that you’ll always find something you like in those high quality tracks.
Dowload Themeless 5 and check it out for yourself.
A second release on breakcore.nl worth checking out is the free EP called Midnight Notes released by WSicko, who’s runs the forum & label if I’m not mistaken.
The album has 5 high energy tracks which combine classical music with gabber and jungle beats. You know, that stuff that’s pretty common in breakcore. Good stuff, somewhere in the range of The Teknoist if you ask me, so download it or listen to it on bandcamp.
The third one is another goody coming from z999 and is called Distorted By Design. Breakcory jungle breaks mixed up with melodic classical bits and pieces with a nice distortion sauce on top. Best served loud.
