This Week In Hard Dance: Psycho Boys Club, Miss K8 & Delete
Psycho Boys Club, Dysomia - Nuxxing
It’s the weekend, and I’m in the mood for some straight-up donk. Psycho Boys Club and Dysomia team up for a rowdy dance floor weapon on “Nuxxing” out now via Barong Family. These kick drums were made for bouncing, a trademark of Psycho Boys Club that keeps me obsessed with each new release. While both acts have a fierce knack for building monstrous techno anthems, they’re also just as committed to crafting peppy, upbeat crowd-pleasers like this one. Turn your speakers up to 11 and get moving!
Miss K8 live from Landschaftspark in Duisburg, Germany
To commemorate Miss K8’s release with AniMe “Legacy” on Masters of Hardcore, I’ve cued up a special DJ set from the Ukrainian powerhouse hardcore DJ herself. Now available to stream on her official SoundCloud, this two-hour mix sees Miss K8 cover all the bases of hardcore, beginning with traditional hardcore techno and ending with wicked uptempo mayhem. You can watch this set on YouTube to see the hardcore savant in action — she’s got some of the fastest and most diligent hands behind the decks I’ve ever seen.
Hard Dance Throwback: Delete - Embrace It (2016)
This one’s for my raw hardstyle freaks: Delete’s 2016 single “Embrace It” was my introduction to rawstyle, and I’ve been in love ever since. Those menacing, gated kicks shook me to my core then, and they still do now — no one does raw like Delete. I’m lucky to say that I’ve seen the Aussie madman perform once before, and I’ve never seen a rowdier room. Get familiar with the master of raw hardstyle before he comes to the United States someday, then check out the rest of his catalog. It’s worth listening if you like it fast and a little too hard.
