All Hardcore heads are used to the fact that the Uptempo scene is getting bigger and bigger, which makes them believe that all the new talents tend to follow this line when it comes to music production. Well, GridKiller and Neophyte Records (the label in which he’s signed to) are here to combat that paradigm after a solid release of 6 tracks, being Hittin’ It Raw the last tune to come out from the young man’s mind.
Make no mistake, this is not (by any chance) a rawstyle track, although, there is a robust reason why this name was picked. In the extended version of Hittin’ It Raw, which is available at hardtunes.com (where you can also purchase it), you will find an energetic intro that immediately prepares you for a fast and tough drop.
