DJ Nik Fish* ‎– The Black Album

Venom Music ‎– VENCD06
2 × CD, Mixed, Compilation



The first CD contains hardstyle and hard trance tracks.
The second CD contains mainly trance, some progressive, techno and hard trance tracks, as it is labelled on the CD cover itself.

There have been a few mistakes with the labelling of the track names on the CD.
Track 1-10 is actually the "Gary D'z Bloody Saturday Night Mix" - it was labelled the "Sam Punk'z Bloody Sunday Morning Mix".
Track 1-11 is actually the track "E-Town" - it has been labelled as "PWOAP!".
Track 2-02 is the "Reworked" version of "Murder Was The Bass"
Track 2-10 was labelled as "Amulun" - the real name of the track is "Amun".

Nik Fish explores the dark depths of Hardstyle with a hint of Trance and Techno with this compilation. Nasty and bass driven tracks are the order for Disk 1, the ‘Darkstyle Decompressed Mix’. Southstylers' 'E-Town' and 'Hellraiser (World Of Doubt Mix)' by Störsender & Endstazion are highlights, while the disk features many appearances by Sam Punk under various alias. 'Mix With No Name Mix', ie. Disk 2 moves into the softer and slightly more melodic sound. After decimating DK8's 'Murder Was The Bass' by using a cutoff sequence, Alia's 'Evil' is exactly as its titled but utterly brilliant, while DJ Zany's The Matrix sampling 'Pillzz' is thumping. This mix really shows Fish's new direction into the harder genres, moving away from the German Hard Trance sound he was once renown for.
