20 best: Hardcore records ever made – FACT magazine
No, silly- the other hardcore.
“It was mad. It was music made purely for dancing, and it was all over the place, hysterical, very hyper, and kind of crazy. It was the first time that the democracy of the Akai sampler ruled, when young kids fed everything they heard, felt and imagined into the sampler – and out would come the result. You’d hear Jam & Lewis, electro things and pop samples by the likes of A-ha – sometimes they’d be used blatantly and other times their use was more subtle. Hardcore was really a collage-like music – it’s funny to think now that you’d get off on a tune that would sample the theme from Eastenders.”
