Welcome to Retroheadz second noughties hardcore selection. For this instalment the main focus will be on the sing-along hands in the air moments from a real golden age for the music. An era where the raves were packed to the rafters, Slammin' Vinyl ruled the roost and we even saw the re-emergence of the legendary Hardcore Heaven brand. From The Sanctuary Milton Keynes, to Bagleys and SEOne of London, right up to the Q Club Birmingham, the madness of Fantasy Island Skegness and everywhere in-between, these are the anthems that rocked dancefloors across the length and breadth of the UK. So if you've got the energy and you're up for stomping, whistle's, horns and screamers, here we go... DJ Error - Died Oh R.I.P https://www.youtube.com/embed/GVtV2n_KRqk No hardcore countdown would be complete without a chart rip, and as far as chart rips go this one is as tough as they come. released on white label in 2004 and still sounding fresh to this day, DJ Error really struck gold with this slice of hardcore history. Dougal & Gammer - Rainfall https://www.youtube.com/embed/jcoJ6Jd7eTA A staple inclusion in many Dougal sets during the early 00's, you would have heard this bellowing out of the Sanctuary Music Complex and seen a sea of hands in the air as the vocal gripped the audience and caused mass euphoria, a pure dancefloor classic. Styles - Do you Feel The Same https://www.youtube.com/embed/n86FlbWyr1s As a pioneer of the new sound of hardcore after the turn of the millennium Styles produced some of the standout anthems from a golden age, none more so than this release on the sister label to the legendary Raver Baby. Jelly Baby's discography may not be as vast as it's big brother but the quality of every release really shines through, Do You Feel The Same would still hold its own to this very day. Brisk & Brown - Back & Forth https://www.youtube.com/embed/P90YJhVH3YM As duo's go, these two don't come together too often, but when they do... oh boy! Happy vocal, big riffs and a tough Gabber section, this track has everything. Force & Styles - Follow Me (Styles & Breeze Remix) https://www.youtube.com/embed/-GenyitfOBs A classic brought right up to date by the prolific Styles & breeze, those pianos... beautiful. and as the tune states 'Euphoria you can't deny', they weren't wrong, were they? Plus System - Do It Like We Do https://www.youtube.com/embed/zB_Z3ajbmxs What do you get if you cross Bloodhound Gang and a hardcore legend...? You get a slice of brilliance, quite literally. An instantly recognisable sample, coupled with the raw energy of hardcore 'Do It Like We Do' has stood the test of time and is still going strong. Impact & Resist - Someday (Styles & Breeze Remix) https://www.youtube.com/embed/_6JqzZqKcA0 I have a real soft spot for this tune, Lisa Abbott sounds incredible and Styles & breeze yet again produced another remix of epic proportions. ASA & S1 - Makin' Me Wanna Dance (Sy & Unknown Remix) https://www.youtube.com/embed/fdrPN364zCU Does exactly what it says on the tin, guaranteed to fill the dancefloor. That typical Sy & Unknown bounce, coupled with some pretty top-notch vocals from Lou Lou and you have an instant classic. Scott Brown - All About You https://www.youtube.com/embed/PiRdpX45q9I There was a time, especially during the resurgence of the scene that everything Mr Brown touched turned to gold. This is encapsulated in 'All About You' and in all honesty, Scott Brown could have a whole top ten to himself. Styles & Breeze - You're Shining https://www.youtube.com/embed/8eJZPpwHDko One of the biggest releases ever to grace the hardcore scene and a worthy number one in any countdown, a track that captured the attention and pure essence of what the music stands for and is about. This track was the Shooting Star of the noughties and is still played to this very day.
