What an EP. Quality tracks on this. If you love your old style Rotterdam Hardcore sound then nab this. Cross match of 1996/1997 Ruffneck, Predator, Cenobite, H20H type of material.

The tracks to really concentrate on are all conveniently placed on the A-Side.

Hardcore Future is a continuation of Painbringer's emphatic style of Early Hardcore with a steady mid strength kickdrum. The main Alpha Juno sound feels like a remix of Innerchild's excellent song, The Party Zone. Basically it sounds good. The vocal sample is from the 1986 movie, Cobra. The second synth riff is even better, rapid fire Alpha Juno goodness. Overall a nice opener for the record.

Arguably the best song on this heavy vinyl is Everything Or Nothing. The psycho Alpha Juno synths are sidelined by a deeply fascinating Trance lead melody. The drum and bass intro is a good start. The melody is quite stirring and reminds me of his other track, Lost In Space, which I love. The powerful vocals really enhance the whole track, in conjunction with more expert Alpha Juno stabs in the middle keeping up the pace. The main melody would put many Trance and Hardstyle producers to shame, so in that case, well done!

Miss Behave (clever name, well played!) joins Painbringer on the A3 track with its totally non threatening song title, Fuck You Up! This one is a little faster and more on the Hellraiser/Cenobite tip albeit a more modern polished production. The Alpha Juno sequences are just as quick with its complex design a throwback to the 1990's. Fuck they sound good! As you might expect, the middle section has a complementary Acid section that also sounds lovely. Excellent Gabber music.

Ghosttown was the anthem for the 25th anniversary of the Ghosttown parties usually in Utrecht, Holland. That's a nice achievement. I went to a Ghosttown party in 2005 and had a great time! The orange vinyl looks great and heavier than usual, also the Transformers style cover looks cool. Without knowing, I have the exact same Raiders cap that Painbringer is modelling on the back cover! Another wonderful record from Friesland!
