I can’t decide whether this song is shit or not. I’ve been wrong about this sort of thing before.
It’s by Russian EXTREME HARD SOUND producer, DARKLIME, and is offered as a FREE DOWNLOAD on a GABBER compilation, titled MASH BARZ ONE YEAR: ANTISTATIC TAKEOVER.
ON THE SHIT SIDE: I don’t think distorted 909 kicks are music on their own. The Rick Astley 8-bit breakdown is probably nothing more than a midi file, looped too many times and crudely pasted into the track at a bpm that is way too fast for anyone to dance to. I doubt this tune took more than 10 mins to make, and I guess that I just have higher standards for music, even if it is a free download. I hear amazing, complex music offered up for free every day. It’s no excuse.
However, ON THE OTHER SIDE: I love the idea of dropping this in the middle of a HARDCORE set, and RICK ROLLING all of the unsuspecting Gabbers. Muhahaaaa!
If you are feeling like you totally support this track, grab it below, and be sure to check out the rest of the COMPILATION for much higher quality Hardcore, some of which is also by Darklime.

If you feel like this is total shit, check out the EDIT that I did of the tune. It’s crude and very short. I made it as a quick little Rick Roll tool, and I feel like it’s an improvement on the original…
