Hyperdriver is a breakcore/hardcore/power electronics noise producer from the UK. A pioneer of the UK breakcore scene with 25+ years experience and releases on dozens of labels including Beergut Recordings, D-Trash Records, ENDE Records and Legs Akimbo to name a few. The project specialises in aggressive, noisy, weird and distorted sounds; mainly in breakcore, speedcore, digital hardcore, speedcore, power NOISE and other things of that ilk.
The ENDE and D-TRASH pages have many releases between them. Releases from other labels can, unsurprisingly, be found on the OTHER page, as can many of the early Beergut Recordings releases.
There is a lot of FREE content here so have a click around. On most of the Bandcamp pages, simply pay 0 (zero) and you can download for free. Pay a little (the amount is up to you) and you can have the satisfaction of knowing you're supporting an independent artist and indepentend labels.
OUT NOW ON D-TRASH - HYPERDRIVER TRASHED e.p.
In my 25th year as Hyperdriver, how could I not do something new for D-Trash, itself in its 25th year? I present to you “TRASHED”, a four track E.P. of breakcore in the Hyperdriver style. That’s actual breakcore, not lame rave nonsense repackaged for the braindead.
There are even some melodies apparent in the mire these days, but don’t let that fool you, it’s still the same nerve grating, irritating, aggressive, fluffy bunny slipper wearing Hyperdriver you have come to hate.
To those of you who know what’s coming, sit back, turn it up and enjoy the ride. To those of you who don’t, welcome and good luck. If you are truly “one of us” you will leave with a twisted grin and a desire to poke needles into your brain.
NEW TO ENDE - Tech Support
The Tech Support album marked a turning point in Hyperdriver history in that the Tech Support track was the first of what were to be many longer, multi-parters. Although it is presented here split into 4, on the original CD it was one continuous track. Once the CD sold out it was put on the download site MP3 dot COM where due to restrictions on file size and track length, it had to be cut into sections.
Tech Support has a heavily distorted sound which is a product of a recording technique I was using at the time where I would overdrive the mixer. Sorry, that should read OVERDRIVE. I blew up a lot of mixers.
I have lost track of the early stuff as any documentation or notes are long gone, but these tracks were recorded over the period between 1997 and 2001, so a few pre-date Hyperdriver.
When MP3 dot COM was closed in 2003 Tech Support became unavailable. Until now.
Off The Grid 500 Compilation
To celebrate both our 500th release and 9th year as a functioning label. ENDE Records presents a compilation of exclusive tracks from different artists of different styles to show what it is we do!
There has not been an Off The Grid compilation since 2015. Our 500th release and 9th birthday seemed like the perfect opportunity to revive the series.
So for almost two years or so we asked artists all over the shop and instead of filling it with just our usual breakcore and experimental electronic music and noise contributions. Asked a few bands we knew and dug and approached a few different producers who's style suited us and who's approach suited our mission statement
We Are Hyperdriver - The Hyperdriver Remix CD
In talking to Hyperdriver recently about remix albums, we asked him if he'd ever done one before? Asked a bunch of artists to remix Hyperdriver? Of course the answer was yes. Making us feel a bit silly. He showed it to us and AGAIN we begged him to let us re-release an old Beergut comp. It was way too good to be forgotten. Here for the second time this century, and for the first time in downloadable form, is UK breakcore pioneer and all round noisy bastard Hyperdriver's 2003 remix album "We Are Hyperdriver" and like many of the remix albums of the time, it's arranged into a masterful compilation album of reworkings of the same Hyperdriver track "I Am Hyperdriver" which includes remixes by Noize Punishment, Ambassador 21 (and various members solo), John Pooley (Vinyl Vandal), 4m33s (John Sherwood), Da Highlandz (DJ Don) and Negative Thought to name a few. Plus a few sneaky reworkings by Hyperdriver himself and the original on the end.
