Various Artists Hardcore Beats 2: Mixed By Ollywood & Ed209
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Hardcore Beats
This 25-track compilation mixed by Hardcore Beats label owners Ollywood and Ed209 is a non-stop bombardment of brisk breakbeat tracks. While the tempo and rhythm of the featured selections doesn't vary much, what makes many of these tracks singular are their fine details. From the vintage reggae vocal snippets on "Outta Space VIP" to the rapid-fire raps by Skinnyman and company on the Stanton Warriors remix of "Fame and Money," almost every track offers its own subtleties. Then again, when you're enjoying these songs in the club, you're not likely to notice.
