Are they even still around? No physical releases since 2011 which is a shame (I don't like the download-only route, I need my vinyl, or at least a CD to put on the shelf), and no releases at all this year. Worst of all, not even their website is around anymore, it's been taken over by domain squatters which is never a good sign... proudly hanging on to my Hardcore Beats tee, they used to be a powerhouse. You just need to check out their library from the first 5 years to know it. There was a time when no breaks mix could do without a few Hardcore Beats tracks.

I dont like to what direction label goes now. Good label in past now landed to boring dubstep (brostep).

Taking over where the shift in tempo from the original old skool hardcore to drum n bass jungle left off and incorporating all the best elements and energy of the original UK rave sound, Hardcore Beats gave birth to a 'true' breakbeat label at 135 bpm.

Fusing the motif of a snycopated breakbeat with the blazing synthesis of multiple oscillators and upfront party arrangements, with fun being the main priority - Hardcore Beats has continued to dominate the breakbeat scene with music full of cheeky unforgettable hooks and dancefloor-destroying basslines.

Having coined the term 'tear-out' head honcho Ollywood has nurtured artistic talent, and given his performers a vehicle to grow into fully fledged DJ superstars who now play all over the world.

With a back-catalogue chock a block with classics and still going strong, and with monthly parties to road-test these future bombs Hardcore Beats continues to be the most bad-assest, funkiest, dangerous, rump-shakin breakbeat label known to mortal man.
