Sindrome and Neuron Pro deserve huge shout-outs for organising, promoting and ensuring the sound quality was second to none. The artists should all be proud of themselves as everyone played out of their skin! Of course, it also takes an enthusiastic and supportive crowd to make any event work and we were not let down in Manchester. So, thanks to everyone from crew, artists and punters alike.
You all rule! Now onto...
For this, the third part of our current mix series, all you hardcore techno fans are in for a treat.

The TeknoistYet another one of our guys that refuses to rest on his laurels. The Teknoist is currently running three labels, Ninja Columbo, Samurai Brylkreem and Our Fucking Jungle and has also putting the finishing touches to his third full length album. As of July 2013, both Ninja Columbo and Samurai Brylkreem will be going digital. There will still be 2-3 vinyl releases per year, but in an effort to get the backlog of tracks out there and into your grubby little hands, both those labels will see the output increased to monthly via all good digital stores.
This Saturday will see the release of the latest Ninja Columbo (Nii008) 12" which features the collaboration of The Teknoist and Johnty Warrior in a homage to the legendary Deathchant imprint. The vinyl will initially be available at this Saturdays Live Evil event and then from The Hard Store.

The DJ ProducerThe last of our Live Evil warriors and a man who needs little introduction, The DJ Producer has a storming ep out on The Third Movement entitled Journey's Never End. We've blogged this release already, but since it's so goddamn large, it well and truly deserves another mention!
His collaboration with Deathmachine, Come Hell Or High Tempo (Rebelscum 33) is also out this week, with the first copies being available at Live Evil this Saturday. The vinyl pressing of this is very limited but digital versions will follow shortly.
All the releases we've mention are either currently available or soon to be available from www.thehardstoremp3.com
Live EvilSimon Underground, the man behind Underground Music, The Hard Store, Live Evil and the backbone of the UK (if not the worlds) hardcore techno scene, has been integral to the careers of so many MethLab artists over the years. Without his devotion it's likely that many of the tunes you hold dear to your heart would never of seen the light of day. For this reason we are proud to make some noise on his behalf over this Saturdays Live Evil event. These events don't run as often as they once did, but when the do, they're special - bit like the MethLab events ;)
