Until everything explodes

Digital hardcore, the London based record label whose name would also eventually define the genre, has always been something thats filled some sort of empty musical niche in my head. Possibly the vacancy left from when I was 13 and sold my Sepultura CDs.

Nevertheless, I think in the few years around the millenium where this style briefly flourished even into the mainstream there was a sort of happy intersection where the electronic music, rock and hardcore kids could jam.

Alec Empire started the label in 1994 as a home for choppy, overdriven, distorted breaks and cute german girls who we good at screaming over them. But 5 years later, the style and its emblematic Suicide Club venue in Berlin were petering out. Now its kind of rare to find someone else into this stuff, but at least the records are cheap.
