Review: DJ Gammer’s Low Budget CD Mix Yo

There’s no doubt that the recession has hit all of us pretty hard. Fortunately, DJ Gammer has put together a low-budget recipe for fun to help get us through the dark times.

Just take high-quality tracks, inspired mashups, and top-flight scratching. Mix well, and serve with a side of ridiculousness.

A mix of classics and upfront stormers, “DJ Gammer’s Low Budget Mix CD Yo” provides plenty to keep your inner raver smiling and dancing. The set readily displays the elements that define Happy Hardcore – uplifting melodies, sing-along vocals, and driving kick-drum led basslines. Gammer’s trademark electro- and dubstep-inspired tunes provide an extra dose of bounciness and energy.

The second track and final track are both standout Gammer originals, representing two distinct takes on the Happy Hardcore sound. Track two, “Nostalgia,” is a distinctive melodic tune built around smoothly flowing synth and piano lines, with a long, trance-like build into a progressive and energetic main cheap viagra toronto segment. On the other end of the spectrum, “We Killed The Rave” – poised to be tune of the year in the Happy Hardcore community – is an in-your-face stormer featuring a haunting melody and powerful vocals from MC Whizzkid, backed by heavy bass and percussion that lends it a room-filling energy.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Gammer CD without a touch of that crazy mixing that sets him apart, and that’s on full display with his mashup of “Blue Anthem” – an old classic instrumental track – and well-known vocal tune “Anybody Else But You,” roughly halfway through the set.

If you’re looking for a great mix of classic Happy Hardcore tunes, fresh entries, mixed with energy and expertise, look no further than this mix from DJ Gammer.
