Hard Dance Mayhem with Guyver Wragg and Log:one

Last week’s show was just a warm up for this! If you like hard dance, you’re not going to want to miss this episode. dj Smiley Mike puts the spotlight on Guyver. Guyver is Guy Mearns who hit the scene in 2002 with Man On The Moon and has been releasing dance-floor smashers ever since, mainly on Tidy Trax and Tidy Two. He’s gone by a few other names, most notably The Riot Brothers which released Flashback / Guyver Unit, a favourite that I still have on vinyl somewhere.

Caddyshack had actually planned out a set this week, but just couldn’t make it through my set without throwing it all out and putting together his own Hard Dance set for the second half of the show. His set features Wragg & Log:One. Wragg is Toby Veale and Log:One is James Logan. They caught our attention soon after they hit the scene around 2008 with tracks primarily released on iHDS and Atmosphere Records UK.

And if you get all tingly when you hear some dubstep dropped in where you least expect it, you’re going to love the second half of Cadyshack’s set. Especially the Bashy & Napt track right at the end that throws things right back to the days of Pump up the Jam by Technotronic. Let’s be honest, where you even born in 1989? ;)

Hard to Beat Mix
Hard Trance vs. Drum and Bass

Caddyshack really steals the show this week! It’s been awhile since he played a Drum and Bass set and it put a huge smile on my face as soon as he dropped the first track. Don’t miss his mix in the second part of the show that seems to slide back and forth between Drum and Bass and Jungle.

I wasn’t sure how my set turned out this week. I switched it up after being in the psychedelic zone for the past few weeks, and to be quite honest, I barely listened to any of the tracks in this week’s set before the show. A lot of the magic is in the tracks themselves this week. Most of my set features hard trance sounds with the twist of having unique breakdowns that include everything from phat almost crunky beats, to the killer bootleg remix by Organ Donors (what is that from?)
