10 free hardstyle podcasts
Bored of the tracks in your library, smartphone or playlists on YouTube? I listen to music a lot and there’s not a single day, I don’t listen to hardstyle. It makes me happy and I really need it. But I’m also sick of my Ipod playlist, although it consists of nearly 900 different tracks.
Either raw, euphoric, tek or hardcore! It’s just awful because I only put the original mix on my Ipod. That means there is always a 25 second intro. So, I started mixing sets for my own, because it keeps the tempo and you can put in all of your favorite tracks. Although I keep my Itunes library always up to date, I started listening more often to some really nice podcasts at the moment.
Most of them are published once a month, containing the newest tracks, perfectly mixed together. You don’t have to skip anything, you can also listen to older episodes and they have a runtime of at least one hour. That’s why I want to present you my favorite podcasts! Feel free to tell me your top podcasts, I am curios!
5. Hardwithstyle Podcast
Once it was a really, really good podcast I always listened to. Headhunterz was presenting the newest tracks of the scene, packed with some guest calls and a nice mix of euphoric, alternate and more rougher tracks.
But since he left the scene, this podcasts depraved into a guest mix podcast, without him. Some guest mixes in between were nice, for example the Wasted Penguinz one, but I stopped listening to it, since it’s no longer interesting and pretty boring. Check out some of the earlier episodes!

Honorable mention: Isaac’s Hardstyle Sessions
Isaac’s legendary podcast is still a good one! He’s presenting the latest sounds of the scene, with some classic influences and a raw ending. Although I think his older episodes are better I kept on listening to it – depending on the tracklist.

Honorable mention: Coone’s Global Dedication Podcast
Thankfully Coone came up with this cool podcast! Since I stopped listening to Hardwithstyle it’s the perfect replace. I love his podcast, always packed with fresh music, exclusives, classics, rougher tracks, it is a really good mix.
I also like the point, that he tries to integrate his listeners by playing their voicemails, or offering the possibility to choose their track of the month and the classic of the next episode. He also includes snippets of unfinished tracks sometimes! Keep it up Coone!

Mark With A K is presenting you the best, just the best of tekstyle in his monthly podcast This is Tek. Fresh and crazy beats, perfectly mixed will lift you up, not only in these hot summer days. Besides hardstyle it’s pretty awesome to listen to his podcast – I recommend it for everyone who wants to have some diversity in between.

Honorable mention: Endymion Presents: We Are The Nightbreed!
A new label, a new musical journey and a new podcast. This podcast is just about the rougher sounds in the scene, with a one hour mix by Endymion and a 30 minutes guest mix. They already featured Titan, High Voltage, Deetox and Bass Chaserz for the guest mix, which is always a highly welcomed alternation.
Besides that, Alive At Night is always presenting the latest news and what Endymion had for breakfast – extraordinary.

2. Evil Activities Presents: Extreme Audio
You like it rough, you like it hard, you like it hardcore? This is the perfect podcast for you. Personally it’s my favorite hardcore podcast, the episodes are always pretty diverse and different to another, which makes the podcast highly enjoyable. Besides my favorite hardstyle podcasts this is pretty much the most listened podcast by myself.

Honorable mention: Traxtorm Records Presents: Hardcore Italia
Traxtorm Records, the most popular hardcore label from Italy, covering nearly every huge Italien hardcore artist, is presenting you their podcast with a guest mix by different artists. Because of that it’s always a different sound you’re listening to. Either it’s Mad Dog, Art Of Fighters, The Sickest Squad, Alien-T or many many more. Give it a try and enjoy Italians best hardcore.

Side Note: There is a third hardcore podcast, the official MOH podcast, which is always mixed by Angerfist, Miss K8, Negative A and Korsakoff. But I’m pretty satisfied with the first two hardcore podcast, so I just listen to it, if there is nothing left I can get my hands on.
