Your jungle tour guides for this season:
Chris HappyFixx – Happycore Records, ToyMaker Music
Ever the connoisseur of happy vibes, HappyFixx has been slinging vinyl for over a decade and a half. A single set will range from oldschool cheesy Breakbeat Hardcore to super bouncy Happy Gabber. As long as it’s fast, happy, and puts a smile on your face.
Matt Positive – Happy Hardcore, UK Hardcore / Chicago, IL * Happy League
In the early 1990s, the British sound of UK Hardcore was just beginning to arrive in clubs like Medusas and early raves in the midwest – and sometime around 1992 Matt got seriously hooked on the underground party scene and music. In 1996 the late, scenester and graf artist Phil Free Art took Matt under his wing (and blew his mind with his incredible record collection) and I started spinning happy hardcore and earlier UK hardcore.
