"The unofficial Planet Core Productions guidebook - all releases on all PCP sub-labels listed, rated, and short-reviewed"

Here it is.
The unofficial Planet Core Productions guidebook.
After it was "almost forgotten" towards the end of the 90s, the interest in this very special label of Techno history is growing at a fast pace again.
This guidebook is mostly aimed at "newcomers" to the PCP-sound; to give them a little overview, information and direction; in order to possibly help them in their decision on which record to pursue & purchase.
And, the guidebook exists, so that this piece of techno history does not get forgotten (hopefully).
Because: 'You and me... we are simply passing through history. But this... this *is* history.'

Note: This is a beta version and some releases are not listed yet.

You can read it here:

It includes information about the following labels:

Planet Core Productions
Dance Ecstasy 2001
Cold Rush Records
Kotzaak Unltd.
Super Special Corp.
100% Acidiferous
Future World
Narcotic Network Recordings
Power Plant
Techno Tribe
Countdown FFM
No Mercy Records
White Breaks Frankfurt
Pretty Asshole
Thai Records
Dope On Plastic
Gold Digger Records

"We asked a chatbot AI to imagine how discontinued classic hardcore labels could have continued - these are the results!"

Excerpt; the results for PCP:  8)

T.H.C.O.D.: Dear Chatbot. I want to do the following. I want to write a "what if?" type of blog post. In this post, I will look at discontinued Hardcore techno labels. I want to look at the question: "what if they actually had continued? What if they had released more records?". For this, I want you to give me examples of potential, but fictional records. Records that never existed. Could you kindly provide such examples?

Chatbot: I'll do my best to generate imaginative and creative examples of fictional records that could have been released by the discontinued Hardcore techno labels you provide. Please provide the first label's name to get started.

T.H.C.O.D.: PCP aka Planet Core Productions.

Chatbot: Great! Based on the existing discography of the label, here are some examples of potential, but fictional records that PCP could have released if the label had continued:

Music / Low Entropy - Doors To The Pleasures (SDRHC 042)
« on: December 29, 2022, 12:18:16 AM »

Low Entropy's first full-length Slowcore album - with a runtime of 70 minutes! "Doors To The Pleasures" is a correctly chosen title - the underlying theme here are trips to light and euphoric pleasures, but also journey's into dark ecstasy and twisted emotions, plus surreal and bizarre excursions; and, most of the time, all of this and more thrown together.
Stylistically, we have eight Slowcore tracks here, often alternating between "calm" Techno beats and rhythms, and relentless distortion and noise.
There is Low Entropy's typical Doomed atmosphere and concept, but this time, more than usually, an influence of Dark and Space Ambient genres - and movie-soundtrack-like ideas.
And we can't deny another influence of Oldschool Gabber - and 90s Ravecore.

A haunting and exhausting experience.
Doors to the pleasures - or to the worst nightmares? It's up to you!


Low Entropy - Doors To The Pleasures (SDRHC 042)

1. Paralyzed By Fear (80 BPM)
2. Depart To The Stars (75 BPM)
3. Doors To The Pleasures (48 BPM)
4. But A Thought (60 BPM)
5. Open Your Mind To Slowcore (Forward Mix) (70 BPM)
6. This Is History (1-4-16-64 BPM Version)
7. Slowcore Overdrive (Extended Mix) (60 BPM)
8. Witches (Full Size Mix) (118 BPM)

Low Entropy - Speedcore And Slowcore Shox

A collection of tracks I did that were only available on compilations so far - including some very rare, enigmatic and hard-to-find ones. And, as a bonus, a yet unreleased track.
The styles on here are all over the map - mostly Oldschool Hardcore, Terror, and Speedcore, but also Slowcore, Techno, Acid, and lots of other things.
Often going back to sonic methods I used in the 90s, but at other times employing very futuristic, experimental approaches.
Usually very dark and distorted, but there are also has more calm, serene outings included.


My E-Book "The Hardcore Condition - Experimental Hardcore Techno Of The 90s" is now published on in a revised edition! You can read it online there, or download it.


This book is about the Experimental Hardcore Techno scene of the 90s. It tries to give an overview of this scene, and tries to explain what defined it, and what it set apart from the main currents of Techno, Dance and Hardcore culture in the 90s in general.
It talks about artists, labels, records, movements. And also looks at cultural, social, political connections, associations, implications of this very special form of music.

Featuring many well-known producers and masterminds, as well as up and coming producers.
Drawing influences from Hardcore, Gabber, Doomcore, Industrial, Techno, Dark Ambient, and many, many more styles.
Some of the tracks on here are more in a "Hardcore for the dancefloor" vein, some are more surreal and heady - but all are fierce.
Another attempt by us in our mission to spread dark and distorted slow tempo music.
And we sincerly hope you'll enjoy it!

Slowcore 22


In 2014 I wrote an unofficial eBook about Planet Core Productions, the label, the artists, etc.
I did a revised edition first in 2021, and I did another one now, and fixed some errors and did some minor changes.

It is also published on now, where you can read it online, or download it.

Music / The Slowcore Compilation Part 2
« on: March 05, 2022, 01:42:14 AM »

Last year's The Slowcore Compilation on Doomcore Records was a huge success; in fact, it quickly became the most succesful release on the label!
While the Slowcore genre seemingly bubbled under the surface for many years, with this release, the word finally went out, and the Slowcore message spread quickly. People finally started to talk about Slowcore, and take the genre seriously.
A lot of artists began producing Slowcore themselves in the wake of the compilation.
And an effect on the Doomcore Records label itself was the formation of the first (sub)label solely dedicated to the Slowcore sound itself: Slowcore Records.

So it was obvious we had to do a follow-up this year; and here it is.

The Slowcore Compilation Part 2

Once again, the sound on this compilation is very varied; influences from Industrial Hardcore, Doomcore, Gabber, Techno, Dub, Noize, Oldschool, weird sound experiments... should really be something for everyone!
Both big name artists aswell as interesting newcomers are here.
And we think the release really shows the power of Slowcore: hard-as-nails drums, darkest atmospheres, hypnotic rhythms. All at slow speed. Showing the infinite possibilities of low tempo electronic music.
We were especially suprised how heavy and brutal a lot of the sounds were for this year's compilation. Definitely for the headstrong! But there are also calm and soothing moments.
In our opinion, Part 2 is even a step up from the first compilation!
25 tracks in total. Over 2 hours of music.

We once more hope that people enjoy this release, and that it might help to push the Slowcore idea a bit more into the worldwide music scene!

Huge thanks go out to all artists involved in this compilation!

Oh, in case, while reading this, you wondered all the time what kind of genre Slowcore actually is, you can find more information here:

Music / Low Entropy - Reminiscence
« on: January 28, 2022, 12:02:02 AM »

In Low Entropy's own words:

"Urban Uprising and Emerald Planet are by far the most known tracks from my early years of doing music. Played by DJs and at partys all over the world. I can't believe it's now 20 years that I produced Urban Uprising! So I think it's time for a little re-lease.
On here are fully re-recorded and re-mastered versions of these classic tracks. Everything else has been kept purely original.
As an addition, there are the tracks "Second Uprising" and "Third Uprising", which were produced in the same era - between 2001 and 2004.

So, maybe you enjoy this little trip in the past. 4 Doomcore and Techno productions by me.

L.E. Over and Out"

So, without further ado, we present you this release!

1. Urban Uprising (143 BPM) (Re-Mastered 2022)
2. Second Uprising (150 BPM) (Re-Mastered 2022)

Music / Shatterdoom - Oldschool Style Doomcore Compilation
« on: November 04, 2021, 07:20:10 PM »

We at Doomcore Records are interested in what we call "Progressive Doomcore"; Music that fuses Doomcore with modern ideas, experiments, new genres, futurism. But at the same time we love the Oldschool Doomcore sound of the 1990s, when this movement of music began. This is no contradiction; we see both the New- and Oldschool as precious parts of the Doomcore whole.
Yet, most labels and artist moved on, and it can be hard to find some real new Oldschool Style Doomcore.
That's why this compilation is here; we want to push that sound into the spotlight once more. Presenting artists and tracks that are, in one way or the other, undoubtly inspired by the roots of the Doomcore sound in the 90s. Ranging from Doomtechno to more Hardcore themed tracks and Arenacore.
All sonic creations on here have been taken from the Doomcore Records archive. Enjoy!
