In 2002, Dov J. Elkabas, aka DJ The Prophet opened the doors to a new and innovative movement. A label emerged that would change the face of Hardstyle forever. Scantraxx not only ignited itself as a record label, but as an entire platform devoted to music of superior quality and a hub where fresh talent can flourish and create their careers. Scantraxx is built on the foundations of representing the ever-growing movement and sub-culture of Hardstyle.
“With our ambition being to strive for the best, over the years we’ve had the honour to represent the entire spectrum of Hardstyle with a diverse catalogue of artists, including established forerunners and the heroes of tomorrow. It’s been our pleasure to work alongside the scene’s pioneers such as Headhunterz, Wildstylez, Noisecontrollers, Frontliner, D-Block & S-te-Fan, Brennan Heart, Atmozfears and Bass Modulators. On an international scale, Scantraxx has been the home of several DJ’s and producers voted into the prestigious DJ Mag Top 100. And of course, we’ve been fortunate enough to guide fresh talents like Devin Wild, RVAGE and Demi Kanon to the top!
Everyday our artists and team at Scantraxx are achieving their goals; together we can look back on the past 15 years and celebrate countless cherished memories and milestones. We’ve not only built up the Scantraxx brand to a supreme state, but have worked to establish our sub-labels including Evolutionz, Unleashed Records, Reloaded and Silver. Besides, A2 Records is now recognised as the #1 label devoted to Raw Hardstyle, and has been the platform for Ran-D, Adaro, Gunz for Hire, B-Front, E-Force, Digital Punk and Alpha2 to develop themselves. The labels have been epitomised by Digital Punk’s eminent ‘Unleashed’ podcast, and Headhunterz’ Hard with Style, which have both exploded onto all shores of the globe.
Another international triumph are our artist, label and SWAT tours that ran throughout Chili, Australia, Germany, Austria, Italy, The United States, Belgium, Finland, Norway, Switzerland, Denmark and France. Furthermore, Scantraxx has been responsible for three sold-out events in the Heineken Music Hall (Amsterdam) in 2008, 2012 & 2017 and successful hostings at Q-BASE (GER), Dream Village (NL), Summerfestival (BE) and more.
As we celebrate 15 years of music, passion and devotion, it’s time to look forth into the future and grasp new prospects. Our motivation is to remain the biggest independent label, continue supporting the scene’s talent and be the driving force behind the highest quality productions. Finally, we’d like to thank all of our fans, artists and fellow colleagues for being a key part in our exciting and prosperous journey. Together, we create memories.”
