This Is Noize

This Is Noize

by Hixxy

CD

Overview

Moving on from the incredibly popular (Now We're Totally) Bonkers series of happy hardcore compilations he led with Sharkey, DJ Hixxy united with Force & Styles for a new mix album, given a domestic release by Highborn. Fans of the pair will immediately recognize the chirpy vocals, pumped-up synthesizers, and speedy beats that characterize happy hardcore. The two-disc set begins with a set of 17 classic anthems -- mixed by Sy & Unknown and titled "The Old Skool Mixes" -- including cuts like "Toytown" by Hixxy, "Crowd Control" by Ramos Supreme & Sunset Regime, "Heart of Gold" by Force & Styles, and "Now Is the Time" by Scott Brown & Rab S. The second disc includes more recent productions from the best happy hardcore producers around, including Sy & Unknown ("Life," the title track), Vinylgroover ("You Will Be Mine"), Force & Styles ("Heart of Africa"), Hixxy & UFO ("Back in Business," "Random Access"), and the Lost Boys -- aka Hixxy and Force & Styles -- ("Dreamer," "Ain't Nothing Gonna Stop Us Now"). Though it's not quite as definitive as the (Now We're Totally) Bonkers series or Happy 2B Hardcore, This Is Noize is an irresistible trip through some of the brightest, bounciest dance tracks in the world.
