Amato distribution take on hardcore release, Several legal download sites start... just to name a few things.

Live shows on HappyHardcore.com radio kicked off
HappyHardcore.com radio broke top 40 internet radio stations in the world!
The first hardcore online festival called Exposure 2004 was launched.
HappyHardcore.com and HappyHardcore.com radio turn 5 years old.

   Where's DJ Demand?
Ever wondered what happened to hardcore producer and DJ Demand? We have spotted Demand on a new release on AATW. Interesting fact is that AATW (a commerical dance label) are promoting him as a hardcore DJ, further evidence AATW is pushing hardcore. Demand is releasing the track under the name Escape together with vocalist Marie, who also sang on AATW cover version of Paradise & Dreams. The debut single on the new group is called Flying Away. Good luck Demand!

   Order: Limited blue MasterWax slipmat sets
HappyHardcore.com and MasterWax records are giving you the chance to pickup an extremely limited blue edition MasterWax slipmat set (2 mats). As you can see the artwork below on the slipmat is amazing, what's more is that this artwork was commissioned for this slipmat design, yes that's right, this is not a scan of someone else work, it is not a rip off of someone else's work it is artwork drawn by a Japanese manga artist especially for these mats. MasterWax records have only made 25 sets of this rare blue edition collectors item and you can only buy it from HappyHardcore.com direct.

MasterWax went all out for these slipmat's quality wise. The slipmat's themselves are a baby soft material that caress the vinyl while offering exactly the right degree of slip and control. Manufactured with a mix of synthetic and natural fiber blends to create a super soft but resilient fabric with just the right amount of give. Unlike the mass produced "scouring pad" slipmats these slipmats were printed using the very latest techniques which leave no tactile print on the surface of the slipmat - the slipmats are as soft and smooth on the surface as they were prior to the print because the inks are transferred deep into the fibers, rather like a rug or carpet. The slipmat's have no plastic feel or appearance, these are the real deal!

We are selling a set (2 mats) including world wide shipping for 3,800 Japanese Yen which is axp. 19 UK Pounds / USD$37.20 / 27.70 Euro / CAD $44.40 / AUD $47.70.

These slipmat's look so good we did not want to sell them! Due to the limited nature this offer we are only offering them for sale for 5 days, we are sure we will sell out before that so if you want a set please order as soon as possible. Orders finish December 10th 2004 or when stock runs out so click the graphic or click here to order.

Please note: A set includes 2 slipmats.




Artwork + Real photo - absolutely no color difference after print!
