Zeuge – Maturation

That’s a nice surprise! Zeuge self-released a short album or EP or whatever it is. In “Maturation” he shows us that Breakcore can be more than just super-fast cut-up breakbeats and distorted kickdrums. Instead, his latest work follows a different vibe. But of course – you might have already guessed it – it is still very rough and relentless. While his older works oftentimes carried a strict in-your-face-vibe, this album now feels calmer, yet it sounds more alien than ever. It features an absolutely otherworldly sound that offers a little bit of everything that sounds odds. From beautiful bleeps and […]

Apwnm x Tannis – The Axis of Self

Industrial Strength is not only one of the most import Hardcore labels out there, it is also pushing boundaries when it comes to musically deviances. Their latest release undoubtedly falls into a category of its own. Apwnm x Tannis created a slamming noisescape that heavily feasts on spoken words. In “The Axis of Self” both artists went into uncharted territory. It’s extremely well produced and dark as hell. Especially the words by Tannis provide this EP with a very emotional and intense atmosphere. In case you want to dig deeper, we can highly recommend to also check out their homepage. […]

Celsius – Voyager Part 3

The third and sadly the last chapter of Celsius’ “Voyager” trilogy is a solid EP packed with Hardcore and heavily distorted breaks. We can also highly recommend to listen to part 1 and part 2. All releases capture the oldschool sound with all the naivety and sample extravaganza you’re used to know from way back when. Voyager Part. 3 by Celsius

Deathmachine – Dred_The Remixes LP

The Oblivion Underground guys came up with a new Remix competition. This time of Deathmachine’s “Dred” and here’s the result. Thirteen tracks made it onto the release. You can expect lots of hard music from 140 to 200 BPM. Maybe you will not like every track on it, but it’s definitely worth going through the tracks to discover some weirdness.

APHELION 2023 – Ohm Resistance

Hell yeah, here’s the next completely free release for you. This compilation on Ohm Resistance from Estonia comes with a whopping 23 tracks ranging from Drum and Bass to Crossbreed, some Hardcore, but also very slow and sludgy electronics. Yeah, it’s pretty cool, seriously, the variety of artists on this release makes it really stand out. Since it’s free there’s also nothing to lose! Give it a listen and maybe consider donating a few bucks, if you want to support the label. APHELION 2023 by Various Artists

EXE Project Label Sampler – EXE​-​D012

EXE Project is giving away some crazy good futuristic DnB for free at the moment. The compilation which consists of 9 tracks features tracks from their previous releases – the only difference, it’s for free! Since EXE Project is synonymous with quality shit, also their artists are. You receive tracks from artists such as Crawler, Gore Tech, Blockdata just to name a few. Getting this release is an absolute no brainer. However, the label would most probably appreciate a few bucks, if you got some spare money. EXE-D012 – EXE Project Label Sampler by EXE Project

The DJ Producer at Dekmantel Festival 2023

Right before the year ends, the Dekmantel Mix from the DJ Producer came out. And as with every DJ Producer mix this really defines new standards. The mixing is clearly amazing and the tracks are nicely selected. The set’s quite diverse and shows a lot in little time. dekmantel · The DJ Producer at Dekmantel Festival 2023

THE TEKNOIST – FMB MIXTAPE SERIES 228

This is definitely a true X-Mess gift. The Teknoist recorded an outstanding mix. The tracklist primarily deals with breakbeats within the higher BPM range. But there are also lots of kicks smashed together, so no worries, you’ll get what you want. Moreover, there’s an interview with the Teknoist on Feel My Biceps. In this interview, he talks about his DJ setup and what he’s up to. Apparently, you can only download the mixtape from the FMB homepage.

Promo – Last Men Standing Deluxe

Ah shit, look at this. Promo released a ton of material on the Third Movement. The first thing to mention is clearly the rerelease of his own album “Last Men Standing” from 2001. But there’s way more than that. On this release you can also find a ton of additional material. So instead of the 16 tracks on the original album you now have 44. Apart from that, there are also two additional remix EPs. Personally, there was not too much for me on the releases, however since there was so much material, I found a handful of very good […]

The Outside Agency presents The Crossbreed Legacy Series Part 1

If you are also here for the more historical pieces, then this might be of interest for you. The Outside Agency just started their Crossbreed Legacy Series. For the first episode they arranged a journey through some of the material that influenced the Outside Agency back then. So, as you may have guessed already, they know how to pick some quality tunes for their personal history lesson. 00:00 DJ Luna-C – I Know U (D’Cruze Remix) [1993]03:29 Hardsequencer – Hypnotizing Unhappiness [1993]05:49 Pinhead – Slammin’ Beatz [1993]07:20 Hardliners – Motherfuckin’ Breakbeat [1993]09:07 Citrus – Fascination [1993]12:00 Defqon – Brainwasher [1992]15:19 […]

Darkmatter, USA / 5lowershop, USA / Saturnalia Festival, It | Mix | 2018

The next mix is really fallen out of time. Well, literally… It is a recording of a DJ Scud set from 2018 and seriously breathtaking. You’ll have a hard time finding anything that compares to this. I’m very impressed by this incredible piece of art. The progression of the mix is so nice, it’s really pushing boundaries. Sure, it’s partially very experimental, but isn’t that also what we’re here for? Apart from this mix, it’s also highly recommended to check out his other sets on soundcloud. There’s a lot of cool stuff to discover. The sets a very thoughtful und […]

PRSPCT PDCST 090 – Li-Z live at PRSPCT XL32

The latest PRSPCT podcast is a live recording from PRSPCT XL earlier this month. As always, Li-Z delivers pretty neat transitions with all the weird music in the world you can find. Her mix really shines thanks to her extraordinary great taste. Especially the breakbeat lovers will enjoy this, but not only them. There’s also a lot hammering hardcore in it, too 😊 PRSPCT Recordings · PRSPCT PDCST 090 – Li-Z live at PRSPCT XL32 Hellfish – Severe BreakageAnna Morgan – GraceErik Burka – VentspillHeadbanger – Sweet DreamsThys, Nicholas Thayer – Go AgainJuggernaut – XTC MotherfuckerEprom – RemorseSamurai Breaks – […]

AK-INDUSTRY @ HONG KONG VIOLENCE IN SEDAN (Neks BDAY Bash)

Nekrolog1k has always been a splendid address for hard electronic music. For a Hong Kong Violence party, label owner Ak-Industry played a set to remember. It’s been on heavy rotation for quite some time here and is a must have for industrial lovers. The track selection is magnificent and shows the diversity of Hardcore.

MARTSMAN – Spoor

There is no doubt that AI penetrates everything nowadays and music is no exception to that. But this of course can mean so much. AI as a tool offers many new interesting approaches to music creation. This can lead to many results, but in the end we are here for the weird shit. So that’s why you get weird shit. Martsman provides us with one excellent example to show you how far you can go already. For this release Martsman used Realtime Audio Variational autoEncoder (RAVE). Briefly explained, you feed music to RAVE and it learns from it. The program […]

0bleak DJ MIX 2023 – Alligator Flavor Crocodile Bile 4 (The Last Pour)

The second mix for Praxis records by 0bleak showcases a broad variety of abstract electronic music from all over the globe. This diversity is also represented in a very tasty tracklist. The mix really dives into an otherworldly environment, unknown the most of us yet. But even though there’s so much to discover here, you can find structure everywhere. Sometimes extremely mutilated, but apparently, it’s necessary. Oh yes it is!

Somatic Responses – Doomsday Conduit

Doomsday Conduit on Acroplane Records is the latest installment by the brothers Paul & John Healy better known as Somatic Responses. As usual they show great taste in heavily distorted soundscapes mixed with some of the strangest acid lines you’ve heard so far. And of course, not to forget their breakbeat-wizardry that really drives the tracks through several dimensions. The album is an insane trip with 10 equally enjoyable chapters which all sound very inviting – and always different. Some of these chapters are darker and rougher than others, but in general the overall theme appears to be very glitchy […]

PAUL BLACKOUT @ Estentorian Podcast 38 (31-8-2023)

It’s so good to hear some new – well, or to be precise old – stuff from Paul Blackout. This highly gifted DJ has not only an unprecedented taste in music, he also has the skills to knock out any other DJ. The mix is labelled on Soundcloud as early Crossbreed, but it’s definitely more than that! Only bangers ahead, so buckle up!

The Silence – The Silence of the Perfect Dark

Well, the waiting is finally over! Even though the world is shattered to pieces, there are some things that help you deal with all the bullshit. And this album is definitely one of the silver linings on the horizon. After a slight delay, the Silence present their first full-length album. Words like mind-blowing couldn’t even describe what the album achieved. This is hardcore at it’s peak. It has everything, features old and new, and manages to be innovative at all points. The sound design is just brilliant. Distortion never sounded any better. This clarity and production value is outstanding. Apart […]

Low Entropy – AI generated Hardcore and Techno (or how to speak to a machine)

As probably everyone of us is now familiar with the disruptive power of AI technology, we entered a new stage of technical evolution. And this of course does not only concern visual arts (and everything else). Equally, you can now create music with the help of AI and even though the results vary a lot regarding quality, this has come a long way and will evolve much further in the upcoming years. So anyway, a few days ago we had an email from Low Entropy in our inbox. And while we are still wondering what AI can do when it […]

Tripped – A Thing About Something

After his first album “Unboxed” on PRSPCT last year, Tripped came up with another full length release just recently. Even though the first release was very impressive, the second one lifts this bouncy in-your-face Hardcore style that Tripped is famous for on a new level. It’s great to see that his style develops continuously, but you can still recognize his signature sound. The album features 10 tracks, including a pretty noisy intro with a savory kick drum filter extravaganza. As this sets the tone for the rest of the album, the tracks on it cover a bright palette and include […]

The Outside Agency – The Way of The Exploding Fist

Technically speaking this is not a new release. Instead, it’s a rerelease of an absolute classic EP by none other than the Outside Agency. After nearly 2 decades these tracks finally see the light of day again. I personally waited for a proper digital download forever – basically since the day I discovered the release. Originally it was released on Hong Kong Violence in 2007, and has been unmatched ever since. The sound design with it’s Kung-Fu samples is just bonkers. The release sounds still super fresh and even in 2023 there is nobody who could compete with TOA in […]

G.xist – Anatoly

Only few releases have the class to cast a spell over you. But luckily, there exist some breathtaking exceptions. Even though the name G.xist didn’t ring a bell or anything so far, the artist managed to produce an atmospheric trip into the unknown. With six utterly different tracks, G.xist pushed the boundaries of sonic exploration. The rhythms do not sound too alien, but still run differently than most electronic music. It therefore also questions your listening habits. But again, it’s not too far away, from what you maybe already appreciate. It’s absolutely worth checking out, especially on a rainy afternoon. […]

Alzoc III – U Devilz EP

Every now and then everybody needs some quality roughneck Ragga Jungle tunes. Alzoc III is not only a fictional planet, it’s also the alter ego of Vincent van Sloth, who’s widely known for his Breakcore fever dreams. In stark contrast to his previous releases, this release on UKJ, goes back to more classic breakbeat mutilation business and sounds like an authentic mid 90s piece of jungle. The release is at least as massive as 3 times the Mount Everest, but maybe a bit more approachable. Or is it? UK Jungle Presents: Alzoc III – U Devilz EP by Alzoc III

Noneless – A Vow of Silence

The first album by „Noneless” from Australia dives into unexplored musical depths. It’s a very interesting piece that shows ingenuity and curiosity in sound design that’s often lacking in nowadays productions. But not here. Definitely not! With “A vow of Silence” you get everything but not silence. Instead, the album features tons of influences from other genres, mixed with partially ethnic sounding vocal samples, garnished with hectic percussions. The textures are rich and range from abstract atmospheres to very harsh noisescapes. Some tracks stick out due to their ear pleasing qualities, others because they attack your eardrums and show no […]

Fuk the borders V​.​A. vol​.​9

After 15 Years in the Business, Suck Puck Records celebrates its very own existence with the already 9th installment of the Fuk the Borders series. As you may expect already, the Compilation features everything relentless breakbeat music has to offer. It has a little bit of everything. Literally everything… The compilation offers more or less classic Jungle vibes, as well as super happy breaks, bouncy beats, but also grim and glitchy pieces that don’t fit any formula at all. For 7 Bucks it’s a steal, so consider buying that stuff! It also comes with great artwork which is available as […]

Hidden Rooms’ “Passion Doesn’t Pay Mix P12” by the Relic

The Relic’s mix for Hidden Room nearly 4-hour journey into madness. The track selection is on point and the mixing is tight. The overall theme is dark and it’s packed with acid lines. In general the mix meanders between hard techno and rock solid hardcore. The Relic · Hidden Rooms' "Passion Doesn't Pay Mix P12" 01. Kontain – The Cold Face02.

Bong-Ra – Vaseline

The most recent release by Bong-Ra represents a beautiful take on dark Jungle. The breaks are super solid and well programmed, the synths sound grim and fierce, and the overall sound design brings happiness to our dark hearts. This is not an “in-your-face” release, it’s even a bit reserved. A thoughtful approach to discover the essence of true dark Jungle Breaks. Vaseline by Bong-Ra
