My attempt to collect all Dutch hardcore and gabber labels including sublabels. I consider Rotterdam Records to be the first true gabber label but there were labels active before that I'd call hardcore. Some of the labels listed may have also released in some other genres. I've excluded related styles like hardstyle, hardtechno, jumpstyle, freetekno and breakcore but included happy hardcore and speedcore/terror. Let me know if you have any additions or think a label should not be included.

  1. 2B Free Records

    Label for Human Resource, active 1991 - 1993

  2. Rotterdam Records

    The first true gabber label, active 1992 - 2012
