What Are The Hardcore Overdogs? - Mission Statement
This E-zine was started for the following reason.
Lately, there have been many interesting and fascinating developements in the world of Hardcore and related genres. New styles and movements emerged, or older ones got a "new wind". There are many new producers who create fantastic stuff, or veterans who keep putting out gems.
But, most of that is complete ignored by or unknown to people; there are artists, who are complete masters of their art, that are constantly overlooked, etc.
People keep looking to the same few producers / DJs / labels and are not aware of most things beyond this.
Usually, these new artists are only known to a small group of people, small circles which are made up by people who often are producers of similar music themselves.

At the same time, people complain that "contemporary" Hardcore is boring compared to the good, old Hardcore of the past.
But that's not true. There is so much music around that is just as good, and often even better than the glorious Hardcore of the past.
It's just that these tracks and artists are virtually unknown to most people.

This E-Zine wants to change that. It aims to feature artist that make marvelous and groundbreaking stuff, but that are far away from the "mainstream spotlight".
To put those in the front spot that deserve it.
And to show that there have been many great releases and tracks in the world of Hardcore lately.
That a lot of good and bold Hardcore can be found even, or especially, in contemporary times. Which should not be overlooked.

But we will also feature artists and DJs that have a huge audience but whose output still sticks out from the mainstream.
After all, in the end, in times of the internet - being a "known" or "unknown" artist might be up to definition - some producer could be a legend to 1000s of people and still be totally unknown to the rest.
That's why we won't be strict or get into debates of "Underground Elitism".
We won't be too rigid with "stylistic" limitations, either. We will occasionally feature interesting music that might not be strictly considered "Hardcore", too. Especially if it's connected to the Hardcore scene in some way (side project, same label, etc.), but even when it's not.
And we want to showcase Hardcore releases and projects from the past that keep getting overlooked. In this realm, many treasures are still to be found, too.


The general idea is to feature music and artists that differs and stands out from the mainstream of Hardcore in one way or the other.

This is our mission statement.

Welcome to the Hardcore Overdogs!

New feature: Breaking the Mold: Exploring the Experimental Hardcore Techno of the 1990s

The 1990s marked a pivotal moment for hardcore techno, as the genre was undergoing a period of intense experimentation and innovation. While the more mainstream side of hardcore techno was defined by 4/4 beats, distorted claps, and aggressive vocals, there was a subculture of artists, labels, and releases that were intent on pushing the boundaries of the genre.
