The iconic Hard Beat series returns for its 31st instalment with Gilly at the helm dropping 2 impressive and hard hitting hard dance club rockers.
EP 1 released in 1997 became a beacon for the production skills of Saccoman, Ricky Effe and the now world renowned Mauro Picotto.

More recently scene leaders such as Andy Whitby, Defective Audio, Dark By Design and Matt Lee have become a part of one of these influential EP offerings. Very early on however, the Hard Beat series came to be dominated by the immeasurable talent of BK who featured on an impressive 18 of the previous 29 releases as well as mixing Hard Beat: The Album.
The series also spawned a Next Generation series aimed at showcasing the immense natural talent coming through the scene including Greg Brookman, Caroline Banx, Masmada, Phil York, Dark By Design and R.F.O. (R.I.P. mate - The Nukleuz Family)
