The first time we heard Hollertronix we were in a record store in Portland, Oregon, sampling the wares aka loitering for like seven hours on a Saturday. We had a crush on the clerk. He threw Hollertronix #1 on the instore turntable. It was more of a mash than a mix, and dude said something snide like, "Is this really necessary?" Clearly some people thought it was. Fast forward to 2009, after like 400 legendary Philly parties where people sweated and got preggers and shit, total Diplo world domination and the birth of a record label releasing some of our absolute favorite music, Hollertronix #10 ends the series with a killer true-form dubstep track with a Barrington Levy sample and heart fluttering subbass. Hollertronix is over but left a legacy. The crush died. The record store in Portland shut down. You can still buy this jam on vinyl via the internet AKA God's Record Store!
