Dark. Descent.

Dark. Descent.

Dark. Descent. is a recordlabel that was founded in 2006 by The Relic. Dark. Descent. releases are focused towards dark and industrial orientated experimental hardcore techno with some classical additions. Releasing digital in 2011. In 2016 Dark. Descent. and its sublabels left Noisj and joined Room 23 Music.

The label uses variable catalog numbers in format [DD + XX + XXX] (Dark. Descent. + Format + Release number).

The format numerics are structured like this:
00 = Special edition
12 = Vinyl
13 = Regular digital release
14 = Album
15 = Collected (Compilations)
16 = Revisited
RS = Rōnin Series (Various)

The last 3 numbers of the cat is the release order. Because of the vinyl releases (they take longer to release) the order of releases and release order can be different. In the end its just a number

Real underground label with a strong character, exploring and dismantling the boundaries between techno hardcore, drum 'n' bass, industrial, idm and much more. Mandatory for any real lover of serious and no-bullshit electronic music.

From what I've heard so far from this label it releases very well put together, hard and often very dirty kicks with dark and/or emotional melodies, therefore entertaining the mind and body equally. It is myy favourite label of present day, and better than Enzyme ever was. Awesome art work as well, 12" releases for some releases, these guys love their dark hardcore, its shows in everything the label does. Long may it continue.
