This Week in Hard Dance: So Juice, MISSFITS & Venetian Snares

So Juice - Bombs
It’s about to be a good weekend — one of my favorite hardstyle artists at the moment just dropped a scorching-hot single, and I’m all over it. So Juice stole my heart when I first heard his ruthless raw flavor and continues to surprise me with every release. This time, he brings us relentless bass and distortion on the aptly-titled “Bombs,” out now via Gearbox Digital. It’s difficult to describe the pure nastiness of So Juice’s trademark kicks. You’re better off connecting your device to the loudest speaker you own and bravely pressing play. Enter the weekend with vengeance! Do something crazy and make this your soundtrack.
MISSFITS - Summer of Hardcore
Representing the power of West Coast hardcore, MISSFITS just blessed us with one high-frequency hour of her favorite hardcore tunes of the moment. She’s performed at a handful of hardcore events in Southern California for hard dance leaders such as Basscon and Army of Hardcore, and she’s become one of my favorite DJs to watch over the years. Step into MISSFITS’ power hour of the best hardcore out now and use it as fuel to go a little harder in the gym or to find that extra boost to your weekend.
Hard Dance Throwback: Venetian Snares - Amazon (2014)
I’m veering into crossover territory with this week’s throwback, but I’m certain you’ll love it anyway. This week I found myself revisiting Venetian Snares and his demented music catalog, and I can’t get over how well his music continues to age. My favorite track from his remarkable record, My Love Is a Bulldozer, is none other than the hellacious “Amazon.” A true masterclass in breakcore, “Amazon” is a wild ride through the Canadian producer’s twisted mind and signature breaks that simply can’t be replicated by another. The more you listen to this tune, you’ll find yourself chanting along with it and embracing the “Amazon.”
