You won’t come across a more dedicated follower and collector of jungle than DJ Extreme.
Over the years Extreme and his site Hardscore have provided countless people with countless mixes, both his own and ripped tapes from his personal collection.
This mix here features all the early work from 4Hero alias Tom & Jerry, the selection takes you right up to the end up 1993 before T&J’s real ragga jungle influences kicked in, with tracks like Air Freshner and Maximum Style obvious omissions.
So basically you get the best of that hardcore / jungle crossover sound on tracks like the huge ‘We Can Be Free‘.
Sadly, thanks to an old skool producer (will remain unnamed) who is no longer active or selling any mp3′s online, has took offence to Extreme’s Hardscore site and subsequently managed to get ALL of the mixes on the site removed.
So for now, Hardscore is essentially dead, with no plans to resurrect it at any time soon.
So in homage to 4hero, Extreme and Hardscore, peep this one…
