The fifth episode of the re-launched Hard Beats Collective Podcast. Shamefully, it’s the first one that I’ve managed to get on here. Exceptional Nu Energy-themed mix from Solution, and a rather potent mix from S3RL, showing off his slightly harder side.
Here’s a few words from the Hard Beats chaps; concerning upcoming release details, an imminent event in London and a run down on the HBC personnel that’ll be dishing out some dancefloor pastings in Spain in mid-June:
It feels like summer is on its way, I Love Hard Beats is very fast approaching and a new podcast is here.
I Love Hard Beats 4: Sound as a Pound is less than a month away. DJs on the night include Scott Brown, Technikore, Carbon Based and K-Complex as well as all your favourite HBC DJs and will take place at Crucifix Lane, near London Bridge on Friday 24th May.

It’s back to Stamina Records then and trackitdown.net on 20th May for Andy Dee’s EP.
This month’s podcast features a worldwide hardcore superstar in the form of DJ S3RL. He’ll be showcasing all flavours of his production range in the second half of the episode. We kick-start however, with Nu Energy raised DJ Solution as he plays a mere slice of his assault on freeform.
