My journey, as a DJ and MC, really got its start with the blisteringly fast, kick drum led genre we know as HARDCORE. With only 7 episodes left in the DAB series, it’s only right that I dedicate an hour to the sounds that started it all for me. If you have a raving background and an upsurd sense of humour, I think you’re going to love this episode. Don’t expect a throwback set though. There will be plenty of recent stuff too. I promise a musical journey as manic as I can make it. You know how we do around here. THIS IS HARDCORE!

Only fitting that I feature this tune, since it inspired the name of the episode. Another stellar contribution from producer, CHRIS FEAR. What really makes this tune shine, however, is the mad flow of the man like WHIZZKID, an MC who has become thee spokesman for the sound of modern UK HARDCORE. If anyone should be suited to lyrically lay down the DEFINITION OF HARDCORE, it would have to be him.
