Haven't really listened to HS a lot in the past few years, especially not extended (sorry, "pro") versions, is it a trend to not have an outro anymore :? seen this in a few tracks

One question i've always wanted answering: Why on earth did Wasted Penguinz and Chris One change the kick in 'I Miss You'?! The track was perfect and then the one that was released had such a weak kick compared to the original one.

It's pretty crazy that Noisecontrollers ‎– Shreek / Venom / Rushroom came out nearly 10 years ago and how much better it is than anything that has been released since then (H)

Rushroom is fucking amazing - I hate that no one plays it (even Bas) :(

So Hardtraxx are going to make Q&A with Josh&Wesz soon, maybe something interesting will pop-up, wish they will still produce or explain why they are so inactive for the last 2-3 years

Just an observation...been listening to a lot of Radical Redemption and I find it so hard to believe that the same guy behind awesome tracks like MMIX, Kill Me, Cross Of Blood, Judge Me, Coitus, Smack Bitches, Brutal 5 & 6 etc, can also be the guy who did the (imo) embarrasing try-hard edgelord Annihilate album. Seems crazy to me, the quality stepped up like 5000% in such a relatively short time

You think annihilate is embarrising because of the try-hard egdelordery? Or because of the production-wise quality.

Personally, I find the new productions no less edgy in a bad manner than the first -Brutal 6.0 probably takes the top credit of cringeworthy shit in that manner.

And sure his sound was more "amateruish" when I first heard him in 2010 or 11 at Wish outdoor where he played his first set ever, than today, but have you heard a NC production from 2007 and compared it to a production from 2014?

Yeah what a suprise that his first tracks aren't as good (production wise) as his latest. What is the point here?

I've always had the feeling he was helped by Crypsis and some hardcore artists at some points. I don't mean ghost-producing at all, but giving a helpful hand instead (which isn't unusual in the scene I guess) :)

I dunno what my point was I guess :+ I'm quite a RR fanboi recently so I certainly don't mean anything bad by it...I think because I came from the newer stuff and then checked out the old stuff he contrast is more clear to me.

Both really, though the track-names / lyrics is more my problem than anything else, that sort of thing just really turns me off. The sound quality is (to my ears) very poor though. I don't know, I guess I just wanted to write somewhere my thoughts on how (for me) he's shown immense improvement

but maybe I shouldn't have :+ :p

Good point, the first 50 seconds is awesome, I dont usually listen past that :+

TL;DR - I love RR, didn't mean to disrespect or anything, meh I'm gonna blame this fever I've had for the past week for me posting random rambling nonsense.

I was never bothered about Radical Redemption until his last album came out. It was then that his tracks really went up a notch. What I feel was try hard about his earlier stuff was there was no genuine quality backing up his over the top I'm hard as fuck lyrics. If you put in evil profanity filled lyrics with a shit beat it only highlights how awful the lyrics actually are. But if it's a banging best then it can get a pass in my book

But RR's music was really something else back in the days. It was sort of "industrial" hardstyle, very kick focused before kickrolling etc. became a thing. It might sound very simple and amaterurish today, but tbh I think, apart from the fact that he has of course developed his sound (like any1 else), its also because we have gotten much more used to hearing this type of sound today.

The lyrics where stupid as fuck, I agree, but at least they where often a sample, and not the cancerous Brutal 6.0, or Digital punk or G4H self-brewed edgery.
