Im an early-mid 2000s hardcore fan/DJ/vinyl collector of all styles of serious hardcore from Scottish 93-97/Dutch all styles with its many labels/legendary producers Ruffneck KNOR Gangsta Rotterdam recs Mokum /Hardcoretechno (Deathchant/Coolman/ISE etc) all Acardipane DE PCP stable styles and this is an essential tune to have in any hardcore collection along with the likes of Flowers Of Intelligence/Only I Can Do It/Cenobites-Tellurians/ IST001 (who many regard as the frirst hardcoretechno tracks) on Lenny's label from Master Mover Evil Twisted Brained Marc Trauner and friends...i have spent nearly 20 y0ears collecting all forms of proper hardcore/hardtrance 93-99 til it changed to darker into hardstyle until 2003 and i still buy weekly vinyls from all over Europe and UK from 92-2003 and after 2003-now i only for me, like some Hardcore and Techno/London Acid Techno (acid 303, present Thankfully in all styles from techno-hardcore is a GIFT from GOD...the squelchy/fucked up/beautiful/dark and dirty hard and happy noise from that little box of Mr Kikumoto and was kinda founded for it's ''proper'' usage circa 1987 and there the story starts) these are the only 2 styles that from 2003 that still release playable for me music...There is still many Hardcore records produced that i occasionally buy but i have to concentrate on my wantslist (not listed here as i am locked out of my actual Discogs account from 14 yrs ago started password error BASTARD and this is my new slowly being listed account that i must use now, my main account is here RIP - https://www.discogs.com/user/mallam)
of Oldskoolhardtrance (Mark EG/M Zone/Gary D/DJ Dean/ style) and I am resigned i will be collecting for the rest of my life as i am well over 400000000 now but dont care its my Obsession...I miss out on so many musics as most stuff digitally released and tunes that i can never find/afford like the ATOOM trance from Switzerland for instance tho luckily i made most old big purchases many years ago so have the vinyls from when they were easier to buy, but i am going to buy 1 x CDJ just so i then may play the stuff i cant reach/was never released (sooooooooo annoying, on many many compilation/Album CDs, Bit, I will continue until my time comes...I still find tracks ID'S daily hunting the net for tracklists of sets/Youtube/Random tunes i hear & identify and so on, i spend 99% of my life looking for and buying vinyls...i really only enjoy to spin vinyls but as i mentioned i miss out on so many Acid Techno/Hardcore playable tunes still being produced today that obv will never be vinyl released...Blah blah...
So, anyways...this vinyl is for me, a Hardcore Geek/Trainspotter who enjoys reading runout grooves/looking for Patrick Moerland's Hardcore Artwork and appreciate the DJ's mixing nuances/level of enthusiasms/Where Why When How did they get a particular vinyl they play etc, I'm Mentally Obsesssed, Nothing else except for my Family/Life/Clothes and my 12 inches of round sexy plastic that i lovingly care for and enjoy even just looking at them as i have just finished sorting/putting in styles/categories-tho never CAT NOs, label/style/year can be enough for me, just so i can find it and as i almost shout with rage and joy looking at full boxes of Bonzai and its many offshoots from 93 onwards or my EDMs/No Respects/Cenobites/Nooms/Early Hardstyle whatever, i feel happy in the vinyl/turntables room plus storage (too many vinyls, v sad, but i dont have a Mansion House) It is truly a blessing to have a hobby that u know will keep u happy/busy/annoyed/joyous for LIFE...
Techno Trance Hardcore Acid Vinyl Ecstasy Raves Memories Crazy times cos of the biggest movement in History and the label of Paul Elstak first release is a big part of this for the Enthusiast...This isn't even one of the better releases on ROT recs Bald Terror/Hard Attack with Beltram i think of, but its an Important record for the Dutch Hardcore scene...plus, the Artwork is fuckin quality, nothin to do with the obv rivalry but as with many up to late 90's vinyls, the sleeve was a part of it i enjoy too.
I must gto now and climb under my Decks shelf, surrounded by Thousands and thousands of hand picked not ONE tune im not lovin and rest until its time for the Ears to be Massaged and Assaulted by the Fast Hard Beats...BOOM-BOOM-BOOM...................

I am a big Ajax fan, also in those days but over the years i bought 32 Rotterdam records records. The hate to Amsterdam out of Rotterdam is a kind of jelousy cause Feyenoord never wins from Ajax. Sorry guys.
It's all about the music.
Except ROT 01 of course ;)

Rival between Rotterdam and Amsterdam? Such was not the case.
Rotterdam and Amsterdam were rivals and they still are. Football hooligans are feeding this hostility. There was always these clashes between the 2 biggest towns of The Netherlands.
I was a football hooligan from Amsterdam, supporting AFC Ajax Amsterdam just in the period this record was made. In the years 88, 89, 90, 91 I was going to illegal houseparty's. So on friday and saterdays raving and on sunday to Ajax.
In the beginning days (88-90) there were few house party's. Most of them being in Amsterdam. I remember that there were big groups of Hooligans going to Amsterdam for these raves. And we were with a big group. Was there any fighting? No because we wanted to rave. There was no hostility between the 2 sides on these raveparty's.
The fighting was on sunday at the football games.
Remember this was all before gabber/hardcore existed. So this was all pre gabber. We weren't bald (long hair instead) but we were wearing trainingssuits.
So music did put people together like house music is and was intended. The hostility was introduced again with records like this. Not that it is wrong because it was going to happen anyway at a certain time. So yes there was and is rivival between Rotterdam and Amsterdam house music but before records like this such was not the case.

First release on Rotterdam Records. The figure you see on the sleeve was the logo of Parkzicht (the famous club in Rotterdam) pissing on Amsterdam. It represents the 'Euromast' witch is a high tower in Rotterdam. As said before the record itself stands for the rival between the scene in Amsterdam and the scene in Rotterdam. DJ Murderhouse was a DJ and Producer in Amsterdam (Track A2 F..k DJ Murderhouse).
3 years after this record DJ Murderhouse was responseble for Hakkûhbar with their hit 'gabbertje' (number one in the top 40 of the Netherlands). This record (witch made fun of all gabbers) destroyed the underground gabberscene.
'Amsterdam waar lech dat dan?' has been repressed in 2003. The original pressing has a yellow label with different drawings and text on it. The repress has a black label with text on it.

Perfect foot stomping bouncey record. And so it was the first record from the then nascient gabba scene, there were others but no one took the cake like this, complete with rude cover work.
I later sold my copy for some good cash. now I wish I had it again.
funny stuff.

In the beginning of gabber there was (and sometimes there still is)rivival between Rotterdam and Amsterdam house music. This record was the answer to Amsterdam, that Rotterdam gabber was harder and still alive.
I Remember when this record came out. I waited 1 hour at the recordstore to open, to get a copy of this record.
