Ben Harder (Host)
http://www.benhardershow.eu



Please introduce yourself.
Hello, I am Ben, Ben Harder. I`m a host of a hardcorehouse/gabberhouse orientated radio show, called the Ben Harder Show. Furthermore, I`m involved in organizing hardcorehouse and underground parties. And last but not least, I`m a big Porn star.

How did you first get started in the hardcore scene?
When I was young I met this beautiful chick. She turned out to be a big star in several hardcore movies. One day she took me to a set of a hardcore movie. There were a lot of beautiful girls and I thought, "this is what I want". So I let the girlfriend introduce me to the director of the film. He said that I was very talented and before I knew it, I got a small part in the film.

What`s your occupation in the hardcore scene?
I`m a big Porn star for a several years now. I played the main part in movies like, Wet and shiny, Pimp my virgina and Hardcore to the bone.

What do you want to achieve with music, what is your goal?
To set myself and other people free.

Who are your favorite artists?
Samantha Fox, Sabrina, The Outside Agency, Rude Awakening, Mindustries, The Prodigy, and Andre van Duin.

Why a radio program like the "Ben Harder Show"?
Because nowadays there is to less good music around. Good music can give people the power to set themselves free. So it`s necessary to provide people with good music. And that`s what we try to do with the "Ben Harder Show". We will give the people good powerful dance music.

You are a DJ as well, how can people book you?
At the moment I`m only a radio DJ, but you can book me for a striptease ;)

Any last words?

Please introduce yourself.
Well, I am Maurice, better known as Zanthrax and The Relic. I live in Dordrecht. I live together with Nicky my girlfriend, Jaimie my son and two paranoid dogs. I am a sports trainer and dj and producer of dance music

How did you first get started in the hardcore scene?
By the age of 10 (1990) I got some tapes from the house temple parkzicht. I like the sound very much. From than it evolved to the harder sound. Reanimator - Bigger and Bolder was the first ep I bought.

What`s your occupation in the hardcore scene?
I`m a dj and producer as well. I`ve released on FIX records, Underground Society Records and on Unknown Species Records. I release as: Zanthrax, The Relic, Nightshade and Dark Earth. I also produce some hardtechno as Maui Pentocosto.

What do you want to achieve with music, what is your goal?
I want to be part of it in all possible ways. Like to start my own label to expand the vision of the hardcore people. As a dj I want to perform more in the future also to let the crowd hear what my vision is.

Who are your favorite artists?
There are many, but to name a few: Patrick van Kerckhoven (all his aliases), Armageddon Project, Dep Affect, Ophidian, Promo / Rude Awakening, Ybrid, Endymion, Prodigy, Massive Attack, Delta 9, Leviathan, Stef Scheltema, Omkara Techichi, Mental Wreckage, Sarin Assault, Miro etc.

Why a radio program like the "Ben Harder Show"?
Well, I personally think there is a place for a new show in the scene. In Dordrecht and this region there are no radio shows focusing on hardcore. I also wanted to do a show just like "Turbulentie" in the old days. So good and new music combined with information about the tracks, records and artists.

You are a DJ as well, how can people book you?
People can book me via: http://www.darkdescent.nl

Any last words?
I hope the show will be a success and that the hardcore scene stays a grown up scene with evolving sounds!




Mental Wreckage (Webmaster, DJ, Producer)
http://www.mentalwreckage.com



Please introduce yourself.
My name is Lody. I live in Hengelo, Overijssel, which is located in the east of The Netherlands. I`m also one of the labelmanagers of the Symp.tom recordlabel.

How did you first get started in the hardcore scene?
I sneaked into my first rave by the age of 14. After that, I was instantly hooked. Bought a lot of CDs, went to lots of raves and after a few years also began to buy vinyl and became interested in becoming a DJ.

After one of my friends started working with a trackerprogram to create his own music I started working with him too, for fun. Got my first DJ-booking in 1999, and in 2002-2003 I started producing more seriously, alone. In the summer of 2003 I made my first `releasable` tracks.

What`s your occupation in the hardcore scene?
DJ, producer and labelmanager. So far I did several solo-releases and other projects on Symp.tom, as well as 2 successful remixes for Neophyte and Meccano Twins. I work under the names Mental Wreckage and Dual Mechanism, the latter one being a collab project with The Relic.

What do you want to achieve with music, what is your goal?
To get more bookings on parties, to keep on releasing records, experimenting and developing new sounds... as well as improving my overall quality.

Who are your favorite artists?
Way too many... to name a few: The Outside Agency, Armageddon Project, Mindustries, Peaky Pounder, Chaosbringer, Moleculez, Manu Le Malin, The DJ Producer, N-Vitral, Petrochemical, Synapse & Sei2ure, Omkara Techichi, Fiend, Broken Rules, Razor Edge, The Relic, Mute... and that was just a small selection!

Why a radio program like the "Ben Harder Show"?
Why not? Back in the 90s, there were a lot more hardcore-related radioshows and I enjoyed them all. Since there aren`t many left nowadays, I think there`s place enough. And considering a lot of people tune in every show, I think we made a pretty good decision.

You are a DJ as well, how can people book you?
Since I`m currently switching Agencies, people can book me though my own website http://www.mentalwreckage.com or by sending me a private message at Partyflock.

Any last words?
None that I can think of right now.
