Well, it’s here! For fans of Teklife, and fans of Venetian Snares; and everyone in between who wants to taste a new style of hardcore, it’s 5ifty$ix K’s new 12-track LP (available now)
5ifty$ix K – ‘Hardcore is Back, vol 1’
When he’s not running his audio company (bassadelic.com) or running his label (dynastyshit.com) or maintaining jukemusicforum.com, 5ifty$ix K is busy killing subwoofers with his uniquely hardcore take on electronic music. This album sees 5ifty$ix k (aka StrangeFlow, aka William Dunn) taking the fresh hybrid sounds of footwork/jungle to a new and more abrasive level by adding a tripped-out and hardcore momentum that is completely unprecedented and 100% unparalleled in the world of electronic music releases. In fact, this is the FIRST ALBUM EVER to feature both footwork/juke AND breakcore in the same space and at the same time. Go ahead and google “breakcore footwork,” and see for yourself.
It’s a combination that works a lot more than originally anticipated, and it is certainly something to satisfy folks out there always on the lookout for trax on the hardcore side of rhythmic electronic music.
Anyway, enough of the descriptions, take a listen and decide for yourself. The album was mastered by the incredible Simteks, who cannot be recommend enough as a sound engineer. Top notch.
So, enjoy the album, ‘Hardcore is Back, Vol 1,’ and spread the tune around – let the insanity pass like a virus, causing floods and destroying bad bass trax everywhere. :)

My favorite is that first track. So go to dynastyshit.com and click on the new album, read all the unnecessary ranting that 5ifty did for each track (actually a fair bit of ranting when you click on a lot of the individual trax on that dynastyshit.com link, like on the track, ‘Raw Funk Shit’ where 5ifty$ix explains the musicality of the tune, rips apart pre-existing electronic music, asks for your opinion, assumes you had a good argument, and then voluntarily withdraws from the conversation, feeling intellectually destroyed by your cunning musical arguments and assuming that you have won the argument)… anyway, then after you read about all that (or don’t…) you can snag the whole thing for just six bucks, or 75 cents per track. Hope ya guys dig it.
Oh, shit, you want something for free though, right? Of course! I do! You do! We all do! Well, here::::::
It’s that first track, and its abso-fucking-lutely free! Why? Why not! Ahhh, what a life!
But, if you would be so kind, if you enjoy this album, please consider buying it (or a couple of trax) so that more albums like this one can be made in the future; hopefully Dynasty Shit can really become an empire for hardcore music, and lots of future releases will come out by 5ifty$ix and by other names in the game, and we can all happily pollute the world of EDM until the whole dancefloor is hardcore as funk.
Thanks for reading!
