J Rolla’s Big Happy Mix

I’ve been buying way too much Happy Hardcore recently. Before you think less of me I’m not talking about the horrible BOOM BOOM BOOM stuff that you’d generally associate with the HHC label. Many people don’t seem to know this but before ’96 Happy was actually pretty good if you could stand a little cheese. Less four to the floor and more amens and breakbeats with the odd piano here and there.

J Rolla, a wicked DJ who you should all go check out when you have the chance, posted this mis up on DNBA forums a little while back and I’ve had this on heavy rotation ever since. It absolutely sums up the good side of Happy Hardcore leaving out all the shite and, boy, there’s a lot of it
