   2003 in review.
Wow.. what can I say, 2003 has been an awesome year for hardcore, consider yourselves all lucky to have lived in it. It's been a major jump from last year. HappyHardcore.com has pieced together just a few of all that has happened this year in the wonderful world that is hardcore. Rock on.

2003 saw the launch of these new labels:
Blizzard Tracks
Camel Records
Camel Records Limited
Club Kinetic - Re-launch
Destructive Force
DV8
EKSR Recordings
Hecttech - Re-launch
Higher Order
Industrial Strength Records - Re-launch
Innervision
Lucky Breaks
Primal Dance
Rave n Beats Limited
Rave n Beats Japan
Relentless Vinyl
Revival Recordings
RFU Recordingz
TKK
Underground Recordings
Uprising
Warped Science
Y Don't You

Not to mention these CD compilations:
Battles of the DJ's: Match 1
Bonkers 1, 2 & 3 - re-released
Bonkers X
Bonkers XI
Happy2BHardcore Chapter 7
Hardcore Cheddar v Hardcore Terror: The Backlash
Hardcore Heaven
Hardcore Heaven: Reloaded
Hardcore: The Second Coming
Hardcore til I Die
Hardcore Tsunami
Hardcorevolution
Original Hardcore2 : The Battle
Raver's High
The Ultimate Happy Hardcore Album
Vibealite: A History of Hardcore

But other than those tons of new labels and CD's for you to enjoy, the scene itself has been impacted in many ways.

- Hardcore in LA Times
The LA Times had one of the first articles about (happy) hardcore and how popular it's becoming in North America. It also mentioned how the Happy2BHardcore series is the third best-selling electronic mix CD in North America!

- Hardcore mixes start to re-appear on hardhouse / trance labels releases.
Injected with a poison, Heart of Gold, Field of Dreams, I would stay.

- Pretty Green Eyes gets to number 2 and Fields of Dreams see a top 15 position in the UK national charts.

- Hardcore Heaven Awards
2003 was the start of the first annual Hardcore Heaven Awards. Held at the Sanctuary in the UK, there were awards given out for best DJ, MC, label, website, just to name a few.

- Hardcore goes front cover in MixMag (the worlds largest club magazine).

- Bonkers 3 goes gold.

- Heart of Gold goes platinum.

- Hardcore charts in Holland.

- Tidy trax starts hardcore at their weekend events.

- Countless hardcore DJ's and groups return back to hardcore.

Not only did the hardcore scene improve, HappyHardcore.com had a few changes itself:

- The members base grew from just under 6000 members to just under 10,000 members!

- HappyHardcore.com merged with Digitally Imported Radio to establish the new worlds largest and most listened to 24 hour a day, fully licensed Hardcore radio station in the world. HappyHardcore.com radio now streams more in 10 days than we streamed in the entire 2002!

- HappyHardcore.com Radio is the exclusive pick for the hardcore channel listed in Apples i-tunes, Windows Media player and on AOL's shoutcast.

- Infinity Recordings is bought out from DJ Breeze by HappyHardcore.com.

- Shop.Happyhardcore.com
"Where can I buy that?" "Do you know any place that has that?". Just some of the comments you'd see in the forums and round the place... that was before the HappyHardcore.com shop opened! Being one of the only online record shops to pride itself in trying to get all the new releases in stock and first, many people switched right over to this one.

HappyHardcore.com Chat
This has to be the biggest change Happyhardcore.com went through. Many people were demanding a chatroom and they got just what they wanted!

The Totally Sweet Radio crew went multiband setting up two new bitrates and getting a ton of DJ quality special guests! - fear the Cinnamon and Milk!

There were so many changes in the world of hardcore for 2003. Just look at the number of CD releases this year compared to last year... Look around and smile... 2003 what a year... 2004 just around the corner - hang on it's going to be mental!

   MWX005 sold out before going on sale!
Can you believe it!? MasterWax 5 (Lia - I'm Feeling) sold out in less than 3 days! Our entire pressing sold out at the distributors before most stores (including ours) even had put the stock on the shelf.

What does all that mean? It means hardcore stores bought all our stock and we have to make more! Shop.HappyHardcore.com will have some limited stock in today or tomorrow due to the fact this puppy is super hot! Don't miss out out I aint kidding here.

   Hardcore set to chart nationally in the UK!
AATW (All around the world) have expressed heavy interest in the hardcore scene yet again by signing Breeze and Styles and Force (ex Force & Styles). AATW is the label that is responsible for chart (pop) version of the hardcore classics Shooting star, Pretty Green Eyes, Field of Dreams, Heart of Gold and Eyeopener. This is a direct quote from AATW about hardcore.

The more stuff we hear - the more we get into the Hardcore Scene - the tracks are fantastic and deserve to be national hits in many cases - as is proved by Shooting Star, Pretty Green Eyes, Heart of Gold etc

The people involved in the scene are absolutely the nicest you could wish to meet and that's why we are delighted to be working with Mark and Darren on the single You're Shining.

This track is already enormous on the hardcore scene and we think it deserves to be a huge success further afield too - more news on this soon -

   Radio1 John Peel is not enough
The hardcore artists CLSM have taken the fight to get hardcore and hard dance more public broadcast radio play in the UK. Their latest CLSM release on CLSM's sister label G-core is entitled "John Peel" referring to the fact that BBC's radio talk show host John Peel is currently the only person playing hardcore on public FM radio in the UK.

Jimmygoat (aka CLSM) have started an online campaign where you can show your support for more "kick drum music faster than 140bpm" (aka hardcore / hard dance music for the non techno people).

   Scott Brown comments on Bonkers XI (11)
Author: silver  
Scott Brown has written some comments for his CD for the upcoming Bonkers XI (11). Interesting read:

Alright guys....
Lots of new shit on there so it should keep you going for at least a few days

I have to say something with regards to the various comments about me adding my OWN tracks to my mix (and past mixes)..... I am signed EXCLUSIVELY to React to do Bonkers, this means that all the times Ministry or Slammin ask me to do THEIR albums, I CAN'T do them. The payoff for all the guys who mix Bonkers, is that we can include our own tracks; this way we can stay with Bonkers Exclusively and not lose money.

On the last album, I was let down by so many producers who had promised tracks and didn't deliver, hence the large amount of my own stuff on there. This time, I've been overwhelmed with tracks (I even had to chop about 4 from the mix) so I've managed to get some variety this time!

Anyway, stop yer whingin' and go oot and buy it!


Bonkers XI (11) goes on sale November 10th 2003 and can be pre-order here NOW.

A careful user has snapped a shot the new Technics CD-J player, we don't have any technical details on what functions the new player has but by looking at the image we can see it has a motorized direct drive spinning platter, SD memory support, pitch control (obviously), looping and possibly sampling support, a reverse and forward switch and it's damn sexy! We can assume scratching (ala the Pioneer CDJ1000 / 800) on the turntable should also be possible. Check out the images.

   Kevin Energy publicly speaks out about Industry Sharks
Kevin Energy no stranger to the hardcore scene yesterday publicly spoke out via a email to all industry keys members and well as NuEnergy members plus a public posting on the Nu Energy web site. HappyHardcore.com has the complete text for your reading, it's sad but very true story and I must say there are many people like this in the hardcore scene, HappyHardcore.com has not delt with the record label named in the text so I recommend everyone read the entire passage and make up your own mind.

"I would like to make you aware of an Australian Album company that has been licensing music and not paying the due debts to the labels. Slamm records and Down Under Ground operate from Sydney. They have licensed material from our Collective in the past and not paid a penny of the advances let alone royalties. When contacted the owner Chris AKA Chris Cross has been rude, aggressive and offensive. I am also aware of other UK labels that have had the same problem with this company. Our scene of small and independent companies relies on good day to day business which can not be achieved with this company. If you are a record label and have been approached for licensing by Slamm Records or Down Under Ground please take the above into account. If you are a customer looking to purchase a compilation you may like to think about where your money is actually going."
