Abused MuSick - trash!
hardcore drum'n'bass, industrial, dubstep, ...


Venetian Snares (Can): al tien jaar geluidsterrorist. Godfather en tongue-in-cheek provocateur van de breakcore, met wereldwijd een schare hardcore fans. Dubstepper avant la lettre. Een hoop aliassen en schuilnamen (is dat niet hetzelfde?) en toch gewoon Funk als familienaam. Alsof er op Rihanna's pas 'Von Beethoven' zou staan!
Zijn jongste plaat 'My So Called Life' verscheen vorig jaar op Planet Mu/Funk: stepping back from the brink of brutalized acid back towards the go-for-broke breakcore he made his name on. Klinkt als: playing jungle at a French speedcore party.
No posers, no cameraphones!

Plus plus plus:
Mr. Kill aka rotator (Fr, Peace Off), Dylan (USA, Freak, Outbreak), Tymon (Au, Industrial Strength), Bryan Fury (UK, Pacemaker, Deathchant), MKL (Fr, Peace off), Igneon System (Be, Rebelscum, Agnost1k, MuSick) en Mr Orange (Be, Abused Recordings).

Rinse

Rinse
Rinse has always been active in the Dutch underground scene. In '99 he joined the young yet known Acid Anonymous Soundsystem. It gave his music a positive extra vibe and the good times started to roll. His livesets are always a highlight of the evening. Rinse has his own typical sound, it could be described as hardcore acid with deep mental sounds and basses that change with building climaxes that makes the crowd go wild. He has very own sound that none can replicate but it sounds very dutchy and offcourse hard and tekno are not far away.

Rinse always goes live and the aspect of live is considered what it originaly means: performing on the spot. He creates the sound especially for an occasion, no set will ever be the same. Not only the dutch crowd goes wild for this artist, he is known widely around Europe and already lifted many crowds and parties to a higher lever. His energy flows from his music and goes straight to the crowd and its brain... an intoxicating mix of beats, basses and squelchy sounds that make you go mad.

Not only as performer but also as a producer he sets new standards. His records and tracks are loved by many dj and their crowds. Check out his tracks on the Domination Records, Acid Anonymous label and the Wishcraft Label, you'll be amazed by the sound of Rinse.

Bruxism

Bruxism is an industrial-hardtechno/hardcore DJ/producer from Aalst, Belgium. He started mixing at age 16 and started producing at age 20 developing his unique style.

Greg Notill

Greg Notill
At 6 years of age he was really interested on data processing (street fighter on Amstrad CPC). Very quickly his glance turned to an alliance between the sound and the computers. His first steps were done thanks to the Soundtracker (1994) (always on Amstrad CPC). The rest is easy to imagine, he bought a PC... Fanatic of all kinds of electronical music and thanks to his demomakers' group, he experimented all existing PC's Trackers (fasttracker, protracker, digitracker impulsetracker, modplug tracker...) and started to make hard stuff since he was 14 years old.

Then, he discovered Rebirth (the first real burner for him) whereafter he produced all his tracks with 'REASON' which he will not leave anymore. Defender of hard, industrial and deep schranz sounds, he always wants to push the power to its limits...

Emission

Emission
Emission is the alias of the dutch producer/DJ Nils van Lingen. While mainly focussing on his 'Mindustries' alias, this alias was created in 2006 to create a new platform for the wide range of electronic music he liked to produce and spin.
It initially started off as an alias just for DJ'ing, but in 2009 the first track was released on the The Hague based Antilounge label.

Emission does not focus on one particular style, but tries to combine his love for acid, hardcore, dubstep, breaks and IDM. The main goal is to keep on experimenting.

Black.Art

Black.Art
BLACK.ART is a well known techno producer from Warsaw. He already had vinyl releases on labels like Neuroshocked and Carbon Audio, and he is one of the artists appearing on the new Polymeric 9 release, with a wicked and catchy Techno track, which will surely be a future classic. He will also be one of the main featured artists on the new Warsaw Mechanism vinyl label, which is due to be launched soon, and is the co-owner of Warsaw Mechanism party crew.

He plays live sets the old school way, with 100% hardware, and no laptops in sight, changing and swapping his set-up all the time, but normally using a Korg Electribe, a Roland TR909 drum machine, a Boss drum machine, and an Akai sampler, all connected to a live mixer. His style is hard, but funky and groovy techno, and his live sets are in demand all over Poland, with regular bookings in many clubs around the Country.

"Bad Boy" Pete

"Bad Boy" Pete
Pete is a London based hardcore, jungle, and techno DJ and producer with over 20 years in the scene. Champion Breaks is his latest bad boy project.

He has been living this project from that first day that he found himself in an old skool hardcore rave in the early 90s. On that day, he realised that our music is protest music, protesting against conformity - it is about freethinking, free spirit and free lives!

Jeff Amadeus

Jeff Amadeus
As a DJ he played all around the World and he has earned the full respect of the biggest names in the business, among others from DJ Rush, and as a producer he has released on some of the main hard hitting labels around, like Industrial Strength, Artillery, Cluster, Guild, Teknic, Hurricane, his own imprint Squat Records, and Polymeric Records.

In the early 90's JEFF AMADUES used to listen to Rap, Ragga, and all Type of Dance Music. In 1994, when all the Dutch Hardcore came out, Jeff has seen for his first time the Thunderdome Compilations on the french TV Channels. This was the moment when Jeff got bitten by the the Hardcore/gabba Beats. He was fascinated about this Music and so he began to DJ ...

After living for years in Paris/France, he moved to Geneva/Switzerland where he started to play house music and got his first experiences playing at clubs and parties. The stay at Geneva was not for long time cause he soon realised that his chance will be in the capital of dance music which is London for Europe. Finally, in 1998, he found in London the music which fits his personality the best: techno, in all its flavours, that powerful sound which combines house, groove and hardcore elements into one style.

Carl Cox, Mark Williams, Ben Sims, The Liberators, Dave Clarke just to mention some names, were some of the djs who gave him some inspiration to play and produce. Techno gave him a voice, a direction, a lifestyle. Soon after, in 2000, the Label Squat Records was born, label from him to all the real Techno Lovers!

Mindustries

Mindustries
Mixing darker industrial sets with the occasional early flashback and acid sidestep, the Mindustries-duo is a force in the studio as well as behind the decks.
Their typical hardcore sound transforms from speaker to crowd, with a non-stop occupation of loud and clear-cut beats ready to take over ... Keeping the experiment flowing.

Moichido

Moichido
Hardcore producer from The Hague, NL.

He's been experimenting with different software since 1999, trying to create and adapt various styles he likes and mold them into one entity. He's influenced by his study of graphic design at the Royal Academy of Art, as well as the underground scene, hiphop, experimental electronica, the early days of UK breakbeat and everything else that tickles his taste buds.

His sound can be descibed as a unique arrangement of stressed sonic elements that hop from one passage to antoher, while maintaining a strong melancholic and erie aftertaste.

Dr Mathlovsky

Dr Mathlovsky
Dr Mathlovsky's productions are a fine crossover of hardcore and hard drum n bass sounds. Maintaining a heavy groove while gabbakicks are enforced with dnb beats, not shy of the necessary distortion or experimentation.

His dj sets are filled with his own hc dnb crossover tracks along with some personal favorites. Going from industrial hardcore to darkstep to gabber to experimental tracks, the styles go all over the place while maintaining a heavy stomping flow. 180 bpm smashers is what you can expect.

Djipe

Djipe
Crossbread and breakcore dj who's worked with DeathChant Records, Murder Channel, NOISJ.nl records, Peace Off, Abused Recordingz, Dark Productions INC., Corebass Society records, MachineCore Records, B2K Records, Spectrumglass Records.

The Teknoist

The Teknoist
Miike Teknoist has been part of the underground hardcore scene since his early teens as a fresh faced boy from "The Bay". He sharpened his teeth and started to gain his fearsome reputation as a DJ playing nights such as North, Rebellion, and Oblivion. His early production skills took much influence from legendary Hardcore artists such as Hellfish, Dolphin, and The DJ Producer. His production quickly took on a distinctive sound of his own, fusing influences from throughout the musical spectrum, which coagulated into a unique Core based audio nail bomb!

Much of his early work, which included releases on labels such as Deathchant and Planet Mu, were written on a beat up lap top and sennheiser headphones; proving that hardware and tons of studio equipment is no replacement for pure passion and talent. The creativity, attention to detail, and substance that backed up these early releases is still very apparent in his recent tracks. His sound is one of soft synths pared with severe sample manipulation. Musical Fury mixed with technical patience.

Ninja Columbo was formed by The Teknoist in 2005 as a platform to release Core, which would not only destroy the dance floor, but display a wide appreciation for music beyond the aforementioned dance floor boogie. With tracks from partners in crime Dolphin and Scheme Boy, alongside The Teknoist's solo productions, the label went from strength to strength delivering music many saw as groundbreaking within the confines of hardcore techno. Ninja Columbo recently spawned the deformed offspring label, Samurai Brylcream, which carried on the Ninja legacy, but added some new names to the ranks. Ninja Columbo, after a year hiatus, is back with its first 2 EPs primed and ready to rock.

The Teknoist's reputation as a performer, using both Ableton and up to 4 turntables, almost surpasses his recorded output, and has seen him tour the world extensively from Manchster to Tokyo, Moscow, across Europe and pretty much everywhere in between.

Satan

Satan
Satan is hardcore producer from Russia, with an exclusively hard and rough sound, he started his musical experiments in 2006.

Starting off from darkstep drumn and bass, he decided to desintegrate and put his own vision into electronic music! Spitting breakcore, metal, darkstep and speedcore out as bullets, his music will fire upon you like a machine gun. He's ready to light the floor on fire!

Ranging from earth to hell, the most furious breakcore shall strike upon thee.

Hellfish

Hellfish
Hellfish, real name Julian Cobb, is an electronic music producer and hardcore DJ from Essex. His compositions are similar to industrial hardcore and breakcore.

Owner of Deathchant records and beat master extraordinaire, Hellfish has produced some of the most amazing futuristic dance music of the last few years. It's easy enough to make abstract bollocks but the dancefloor requires a little more production nous & understanding of the dancefloor. Combining this with abstract bollox (which he surely does) is a most difficult trick. He cut his production teeth back in the day with releases on Moving Shadow, Dance Bass and his own Bogwoppa records. (Let's forget about the happy hardcore years) which brings us up to 1996, when he launched Deathchant & pioneered the hardcore techno vs hip-hop sound in a way few can match, even now.

Ignite

Ignite
Resident at Acid Soundz and Narcosis
What to expect? Sets ranging from acid, acidcore, acidtekno, oldskool hardtek and especially oldskool hardcore.

Stefan ZMK

Stefan ZMK
Too young to enter the clubs, Stefan did so anyway. Scouting all the mainstream electronic scenes at an age of 15, Stefan absorbed all the styles he could find. At age 16 he discovered the dutch free-party scene and it was here where Stefan found the ultimate setting for his music. It's 1998 when Stefan started DJ'ing/producing and a year later he teamed up with his friends to start their unique brand of free-party: ZMK Soundsystem.

In 2000 Stefan was already a notorious vinyl collector and he was one of the members to start the ZMK record label, which contributed even more to ZMK's european succes. Stefan's tracks were featured on the first 2 EP's, which sold out within several months. Stefan has performed at countless free-parties all over Holland and Europe, promoting the dutch unique brand of acid, hardtek and hardcore. Over the years Stefan has not forgotten his roots, and the integration of different styles (breakbeats, electro, techno, rave) became more and more evident. While his style really started to develop, his number of solo-bookings at clubs and parties exploded, including most mayor venues in Holland and touring through Europe regulary.

With over 15 years of experience, he is considered to be the most booked dutch DJ of the free-party movement. But his development does not stop there. With the rise of Ableton Live and Traktor Scratch, Stefan has found the tools to incorporate all that is good in electronic music into his mindbendig sets. Mixing obscure elements, custom remixes with the freshest beats available, digital and analog. What was considered to be impossible, now sits waiting at his fingertips! Are you ready?

Radium

Radium
A multifaceted artist. Dj and founder member, in partnership with Al Core, of the mythic MICROPOINT duo since 1992, he ought to be considered as a major contributor to the creation of the Electronic scene in France. During the last decade of the 20th century, Micropoint has set the standards of french Hardcore Techno: "Frenchcore". Since then, they have been releasing numerous EPs which were met with tremendous success within the scene.

In 1995, while still working with Al Core for Micropoint, Radium began to produce numerous solo albums under the stage name which is now so famous within the Hardcore scene. He contributed in 1996 to the creation of the labels Dead End and Psychik Genocide in order to produce and promote the music he loved : Hardcore.(to him, the style of music that most permits experimentation). 1998 marks the release of Micropoint's first LP: "Neurophonie", a never-before-seen in France. The popularity of this revolutionary style began to catch on quick and Micropoint shooted to fame bringing Frenchcore into a wider circuit. The same year, the duo was invited to appear to a public of over 100,000 people for a live session at the first Techno Parade in France.

Micropoint's 2nd LP, "Anesthesie International" (2000), meant the beginning of an important evolution in the electro scene : Hardcore Techno was beginning to mix with other similiar musical styles. The album was well received and brought the duo wide recognition on the international Electronic music scene. This same year, Radium released his first solo Mix CD entitled "Inhuman": a mix which is both clever and varied. This release put Radium on the map as one of the leading DJs in Frenchcore. At that time, he became co-manager of the label Audiogenic, which quickly rose to both national and international success thanks to the quality of their productions.

In 2001, Radium released his first solo LP, "Paranoia Performance", which was met with great acclaim for both the quality of the production and the originality of his work. For that matter, many tracks of this album have been remixed by notables artists such as Tieum, The Speed Freak, Marc Acardipane, and Hellfish. The overall success of his records led him to perform live shows both with Micropoint and as a solo Dj under the name of Radium. His shows, in which he often added a live drummer or MC, were packed all over France.

He returned in 2003 with a 2nd album called "inExtremist" which lived up to its name and pushed back our definition of Frenchcore to the extremes. He continued over and over again with his solo live performances which ravished those who were nostalgic for his lives together with Micropoint. The release of the Mix CD "Darkcore 7"(2004) - in which he used noise and industrial sounds to create totally dancefllor tracks - under the Dutch label Master of Hardcore, demonstrated once more the capacities of this artist.

2006: Radium delivered his 3rd solo LP, "Terminal Trauma", where he generally slowed down his usual rythm, producing more mid-tempo tracks. This release featured two additional DJs for the vocals : Lenny Dee, a living myth on the international Electro scene, (on "Free Party Animal"), and the up-and-coming Daisy (on "Trust or Die"). From this year on, Radium has performed live for some of the biggest events and festivals in France (Boréalis, Astropolis, Electromind, Nordik Impakt..) and has made appearances regularly on the international circuit in countries such as England, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Republic Czech, Belgium, Holland, Canada, and the USA.

After a long separation, Micropoint made a comeback in 2008 with their long-awaited album: "Overdose United". This album, caracterised by its sharp, energetic style and futuristic approach, was extremely well received and became a reference in Frenchcore music. Besides, it included some collaborations with Lenny Dee, The Horrorist and Punish Yourself. The title of the track "Hardcore No More" shall not be taken seriously: Al Core et Radium have not finished with us yet and they will continue playing with our minds and bodies until we can't take no more... No risk of overdose in sight yet!

In 2009, Radium has returned with his new solo album ( on CDs and vinyls) : "MasterPiss" (Audiogenic), which will delight his most loyal fans as well as his new recruits. The title , "MasterPiss" is not by accident. It's a politically incorrect pun letting us know that despite the ever-growing competition, the Master still remains at the wheel driving of this great ship that we know as French Hardcore.

Trauma Exposure

Trauma Exposure
What about the band? All members were already active in other bands but the flame went out for a short period. As expected they couldn't be sitting they're asses at home without any musical interference. When passion exploded again they decided to form a new and refreshing band. In other words ...
Trauma Exposure was born!

They have melodic riffs that'll wander in your mind until the sun goes down ... When you're sick off that catchy tune in your head, it get's beaten away by a twisted breakdown. Mix this with a voice that'll turn strawberry-jam into cement and you know what Trauma Exposure is all about

He started partying at a young age too, and swiftly Khaoz Engine found his true love; breakcore, dnb & hardcore.

3 years later he knew he wanted to be a bigger part of this scene and started dj-ing with "Deadend", playing DnB & Hardcore. Only this wasn't enough...

At the age of 16 he started producing his first tracks, very eager to learn and with beats that were getting better & better.

At the pace of a pumping, menacing hardcore tune, his beats evolved into a sound that combines hard & evil ambiences with powerfull breaks & kicks.

Mathis Mootz, the teutonic mastermind and producer behind The Panacea from Wuerzburg, Germany, has developed and perfected his sinister drum and Bass mashup style over the years. The Panacea is the digital Napalm Death, fueled by wreck-step beats, he samples and generally throws together elements of hardcore techno, drum'n'bass, jungle and industrial into his unique explosive sound.

As one of the dominant faces of the German Position Chrome Label he has released 23 ep's and 5 albums since 1996. His debut 'Low Profile Darkness' was one of his most influential works to date, and a huge success with over 12,000 copies sold. Others followed like the techno and hardcore influenced 'Twisted Designz','Phoenix Metabolism' with it's hip hop and booty bass roots, the enormous 'German Engineering' and 'Underground Superstardom', and the experimental and noisy 'Architettura'.

His experimental, electro, and neo-industrial beats were produced under the aliases of Squaremeter, Disorder, Warfare, Kate Mosh, Bad Street Boy, Radar and Rich Kid. These productions landed on labels like Mille Plateaux, Ant-Zen, Hands Productions, Ambush, Ad Noiseam, Kniteforce, Intransigent and Outbreak to name a few.

Human Resource

Human Resource
Human Resource was founded in 1990 by Guido Pernet, Jasper Drexhage, Robert Mahu and Johan van Beek. Their first record "Dominator" became an European hit almost overnight. Due to this huge success, and the success of their second album "The Kicking Noise of Rotterdam", the group spends years on the road touring the globe. By the end of the 90's, after many changes of the line up, the band ceased to exist and co-founder Guido Pernet was the only one left.

In 2004 he decided to restart the group with oldschool house legends Maurice Steenbergen and Zeno Zevenbergen. Maurice had some hits on his own. He's the one responsible for the legendary gold awarded hit single: "Poing" and as the producer of "Armageddon - You'll never be mine" and "Evil Maniax - Creators of Hardcore" to name only a few. He remixed records for Paul Elstak and Lenny Dee amongst others. Performing with RTS and as a DJ he plays all around the world. Zeno, better known as the voice for legendary "T99", MC for the "Ruffneck Alliance" and "Dye Witness", became the MC. In this formation the group did a few gigs in Holland and the UK. Early 2005 Zeno left the group and by that time Guido and Maurice are "the one and only" crew members of Human Resource.
At the end of 2008 Guido Pernet teamed up again with Jasper Drexhage, on off the original members, to start to performe again on classic and old skool party's
