Details: Unlike some genres of music that rely on the support of TV, radio and trend lend publications, hardcore is one snarling beast that refuses to die, packing out raves up and down the country with its extremely loyal supporters. After the HUGE success of the Hardcore Nation and Hardcore Adrenaline series, pioneering harder dance label Nukleuz are back once again, this time joining forces with the legendary Positiva to release this killer triple CD.

Hardcore Nation 2009 consists of 58 MASSIVE tracks that are nearly all exclusive to this album. Mixed by two of the biggest names in hardcore, Stu Allan and Joey Riot step up to the decks to show what they do best, providing two mixed CDs crammed full of the freshest, most upfront tunes from the scene today, with CD3 rammed to the rafters of cheeky bootlegs mixed by Nukleuz DJs.

Stu Allan has been one of the instigators of the genre from the very beginning- carving his path with legendary radios shows in the north and producing under his Visa guise that includes 3 Top 10 hits, an incredible 13 Top 40 hits alongside releases on FFRR, Carl Cox’s MMR label and Media Records. Playing at the biggest parties in the hardstyle calendar, Stu Allan is a hardcore heavyweight with fans that meticulously follow his DJ schedule every weekend.

Joey Riot is probably the fastest rising DJ-Producer in the genre, wowing followers with his energetic sets and winning Best Breakthrough DJ (2006), Best Live Act (2007) and coming 4th as Best DJ at this year’s Hardcore Heaven Awards. Whether it’s DJing, running own label Lethal Theory or co-editing the scene’s very own dedicated magazine ‘Core’, this Glaswegian couldn’t be any more hardcore if he tried!

Leading with the only official remix of the No. 3 chart smash Guru Josh Project Infinity 2008, Positiva and Nukleuz crank open their laden vaults to give some well known dance classics a special hardcore treatment. Tracks include the colossal No.1 from Fragma Toca’s Miracle; the No.2 hit Heart of Asia by Watergate and indie popstars Alphabeat also get a dirty makeover for their big tune Fascination.

Massive dance anthems also come from the likes of Ferry Corsten Punk, BBE Seven Days, One Week, Perfect Phase Horny Horns, Barthezz On The Move, Lasgo Something and Shy FX & T Power Shake Your Body. The album also includes mixes of some of Nukleuz’s biggest Top 40 hits including BK Revolution the last ever vinyl only Top 40 hit, Mario Piu with Communication (Somebody Answer The Phone).

So there you have it: two of the biggest dance labels joining forces with two mighty names from the scene… we present to you Hardcore Nation 2009!
