After 10 incredibly rewarding years of Executive Records I have decided to finish the label. It has been a huge journey that I am very grateful to have taken part in. I believe the time is right to do this now. On this journey I have had many people who have helped the label grow. It's been very tough at times but I would not have got through it all without the help of the following people...

Big thanks firstly to all the artists who have contributed: The Acolyte, ElectriX, Antix, Tom-E, Weaver, Implex, Reazn, Impact, Resist, Fracus, Darwin, Joey Riot, In Effect, Makio, Dover, JTS, Zander, Suae, Danny Coggin, Analog, Gemini, T.C, Nex Level, S3RL, Dudlee, Patch, Eufeion, Allison Mclauchlan, Smartyz, Damaged, Sc@r, Scott Devotion, Skeets, Yorkshire Ripper, NiX, Jerv, Nizzle, Hyperactive EnemyZ, Destiny, Dave PSI, MC Obi, Bounce, Shox, Influx, Boris, Auscore, Whiskey, Pace, Milo, Darren Hotchkiss, Oli G, SPIT & Essi.

Special mention to Kevin Energy, without him Executive Records would not have been born, I remember the faith and passion he put in me and it has never been forgotten. He supported me through thick and thin, not to mention all the staff at Nu Energy. They were truly awesome people to speak to and work with: Allan, Derek Thorpe, Gordy & A.B.

Rory (Impact) had a massive influence over the years. We wrote so many tracks together and in that time, together launched Recycled Records in 2008. Not only on a business level but as a best friend, Rory played a big role in Executive Records. That also must be said with Dover. Ben helped me with website, promotions, all those YouTube clips, thank you so much, I have never forgotten, plus all those times at gigs.

Daniel (Antix) played an enormous role in the first 5 years of Executive Records. We had some of our biggest tracks with productions such as 'Sweet Release', 'In My Eyes' & 'Know Who I Am'. Without his help the label would not be where it is today.

Artwork played a big role in Executive Records. The Executive logo and release artwork had changed over the years to suit the crossover from vinyl to digital. They were amazing and I must hugely thank Steve (Nex Level) and Dimitri (Freesoul) for the tireless work.

I finally must thank the following for the help in promoting the label Tulsi, Ash (Sublime & those awesome T-Shirts helped the label out so much (thank you), Analog (Your help on the Internet was unbelievable, all the promotion) I cannot begin to say how thankful I am, so many years), Chris (MVP), Maddie, Chubby, Lorenzo, Fazed, Marc Loage, Cotts (Thank you so much for the YouTube videos), JTS & Zander (One Seventy - Thank you so much guys, I will be forever grateful), Anfcore - All those mixes (Echild Days) have not been forgotten, DJ Silver (Happyhardcore.com), Richard @ Electronica (Your advice has been spot on and never taken for granted. Very wise and respected by all) Promoters - Tom-E, Oky, Fenix, Pulsar, Suae, Steve Hill , Sam Crane, Tanner, Aladdin, Jim Jams, Crystal, AJ Ravix Davies (Perth), Harley (QLD) & Jerry (Nomad).

I am sure I may have forgotten people I apologise, 10 years is a lot to cover! The last thanks are always for the unknown heroes of Executive, the ones who have bought my music and pushed it over the years. I am so thankful. Getting Australian music heard overseas was always an uphill battle. Without you guys it would never have been possible. Thank you.

To finish up the label I have three more releases to go on digital. Information on these releases are below. Samples will be up soon.

EXE048



1) Patch & Eufeion - Sunshine & Rainbows
2) Patch & Eufeion - Explicit Content

EXE049



1) S3RL - Can't Bring Me Down (Damaged Remix)
2) Dudlee Feat. Rowena - Innocence (Smartyz Remix)

EXE050 - Haze & Friends EP



1) Haze & Zander - The Time Is Now
2) Haze Feat. Allison Mclauchlan - Waiting (NiX Remix)
3) Haze & Implex - Executive Reunion (Haze Mix)

And last but not least, this does not mean I have stopped producing, quite the opposite. I have huge passion for Drum N Bass and Dub and want to pursue down that avenue. It will be a long journey and I am literally starting right from the bottom, but it is a huge passion of mine and I want to give it a shot. I also will be selling the entire Executive catalogue on DVD in the near future so please watch this space.

Cheers,

Ben @ Executive Records.

That's a real shame, been one of my favourite labels for a long time.

Best of luck mate, and thank you :-)

Shame to see Exec ending. I'm sure you'll do some great drum & bass tracks though, stay in touch and keep the tracks coming

Pretty much enjoyed this label when I first started listening to hardcore.

Thanks for keeping hardcore alive for the past 10 years too

Sorry to be reading this :(

Another bullet for Hardcore as we're losing a good label and a good producer! Good luck in your future ventures and I look forward to hearing new stuff whatever the genre!

I wished Shane (ElectriX) Would've released more. His free tracks from his previous artist name where some good tracks, and if he could've been arsed to update them and get them released, I might see them sell fairly well :)

Thanks for the many years of music.
I still have Executive 01 on vinyl, feels so long ago when I bought that record.

Good luck on your next adventure. Once again, thank YOU for an outstanding label.
Tracks from your label will be played at raves for many many MANY years to come.

Loved every bit of Executive Records. For me this was an Aussie label that pretty much 'kept the hardcore vibes' alive after all those years. but when you said, : I have huge passion for Drum N Bass and Dub and want to pursue down that avenue"

I thought your heart was always with HHC ? anyways, can you please tell me who did the remix of that track sampling that movie 'Short Circuit' .. ive always wanted to know,

come and follow me, to wherever life takes you... you're the light I see,
and i will follow you...

LOL

There have been a few over the years. I did a mix with Impact on Return of The Clans. Made in 2008. Enjoy

Look forward to hearing your new sounds. Drum n bass / future jungle / future garage (140-160bpm breaks) own my heart as well. Good luck!!

First label i ever signed to and i'll never forget the phone call hazey gave me to welcome me to the label.

Even though my focus turned to AWF, it was by far the most warm and genuine welcome i'd ever received from a record label. Fantasticallly well run by an awesome person and artist and i'm thankful to have left my mark o a label that set off my hardcore career.

Big ups hazey.
