Founded in 1997, Supreme Core Productions was one of the most talked about netlabels in the online hardcore-techno scene.
Crossing the boundaries of the conventional hardcore genre, SCP received infamous status by reaching out to outside influences, ranging from rock to hiphop, and by being the first known hardcore netlabel to work with live bands, both on-stage and in the studios.
With close to 60 online releases, as well as features on various compilation CD's, SCP had a following from all parts of the world.
Featured here is their legacy; a (soon to be) nearly complete backcatalogue of raw and honest hardcore.
After years of inactivity, and a lot of hard work these last few months, the brand new SCP website is finally online! Be sure to check out our backcatalogue (we're currently in the process of uploading tracks) and artist profiles.
More updates coming up!
During the late 90's, there was a strong emerge of music labels on the internet, known as 'netlabels'. SCP, short for Supreme Core Productions, was one of those netlabels.
Founded in 1997, SCP featured several up-and-coming artists and released about 60 tracks, both online and on CD compilations. Highlights include international collaborations, involvement from live bands, and track plays at some of the biggest dance parties.
Around the year 2000, UCP/SCP joint sublabel Industrial Death Productions (IDP) was formed, focussing on tracks that were more aggressive in nature. Eventually, the decision was made to merge those tracks with the main SCP catalogue, therefore disbanding the sublabel, and operating solely under the SCP flag.
A few years ago, SCP's former senior members sat down and discussed the idea of converting all previously released tracks to MP3 format, and submitting them to the Internet Archive (archive.org), therefore making the tracks available again to the public, since the initial hosting server went down when SCP became inactive. So, a domain name was registered, the original logo got a makeover, and a teaser page went live.
Then, the word got out that SCP had become somewhat active. Old friends and fans started to get in touch, asking if we "were back", and if we were planning on releasing new tracks. Though most of the remaining artists were still involved in making music in one way or another, none of them thought about actually releasing their tracks online again.
But, as the saying goes; old habits die hard. We liked the idea of finishing up and releasing previously unfinished material, writing new tracks in SCP's trademark style, and getting our stuff out there again. So yes, we're back, and you definitely will be hearing more from us!
