Mokum Records


The Amsterdam based Mokum Records started out in 1992.
Its first release came out in the beginning of 1993, when hardcore was just about to take off big time in the Netherlands.
In a few years time, both Mokum Records and the hardcore scene in Holland exploded to gigantic proportions - raves of 20.000 gabbers were no exception - and the whole movement became a specific cutural phenomenon with its own fashion and music.
Mokum Records released lots of 12"es, compilations and artist albums and built up a steady and credible catalogue with various international artist like:
DJ Chosen Few, Technohead, DJ Dano, Tellurian, Flamman & Abraxas, The Speedfreak, The Prophet, Buzz Fuzz, Scott Brown, Liza N Eliaz, The Outside Agency, Lenny Dee and many more.
In just 6 years time, Mokum released close to 100 12"es, including all-time classics 'Name of the DJ' (re-released with 2005 remixes) and 'I Wanna Be a Hippy' (world wide #1 chart buster).
Correct us if we are wrong, but with 1.3 million CD single sales, Technohead's "I Wanna Be A Hippy" has to be by far the best selling hardcore record / CD till date, all licenses worldwide for hundreds of compilation cd's like Thunderdome not included.

MOK 21 is a coffee mug (pictured at image section). The Dutch word for mug is Mok, and therefore it's some sort of joke as the catalogue numbers start with MOK.
