Ever noticed that when the Hardstyle scene is exploding into one mega episode of Days Of Our Lives, that the Hardcore scene remains steady as ever? Don’t hate me for pointing out the obvious, but it seems that with higher BPM’s comes a lot less drama. We need to let the Hardcore movement serve as a good example; the scene is full of absolute chillers, the music and parties remain incredible and there’s barely any banter about being ‘unprofessional.’
It’s time that we reflect on the basics in which our scene was built on, and what better way to do that by celebrating one of Hardcore’s most fundamental concepts?! So with that in mind, let’s give it up for one hell of a #TBT as we go back in time to Thunderdome’s Final Exam and celebrate its anthem “TD is YOU” by Neophyte & Promo, featuring Minckz.
The wizard. Oh, the magical, blessed wizard. The figure who’s represented Hardcore’s most successful concept and stood the test of time to find himself plastered on numerous pieces of merchandise. For those who can’t find magic and beauty in Thunderdome, well, shame on you…
At the conclusion of 2012 Thunderdome’s ‘Final Exam’ occurred, marking a closed chapter for the party. Hardcore-heads around the globe were left in devastation as ID&T temporarily closed the doors. Representing the final edition of Thunderdome was no less than two of Hardcore’s most respected veterans – Promo and Neophyte. Both being artists who held a special bond with the party, these dudes cooked up legendary anthem “TD is YOU,” which puts out a powerful statement.
“From the core of the movement
To us, you stay true…
Thunderdome is HARDCORE
Thunderdome is YOU!”
