Nukleuz: A Decade of Dance Mayhem – Year 2002

Nukleuz: A Decade of Dance Mayhem – Year 2002


This was the year that Nukleuz won the “Best Dance Label” at the industry’s Music Week awards. It was in recognition of the sheer volume of 12′ sales Nukleuz had had in 2001 (in excess of 450,000!) and Pete, Ed Real and Mark Wilson (Disco Brothers) went to collect the award from Johnny Vaughn. This was a real high point as it was an industry wide recognition of the amazing success Nukleuz had achieved.

As far as the releases are concerned it was business as usual and 2002 turned out to be another bumper year for 12′ sales equalling the amazing 2001 effort. We started our Frantic Residents series of CDs starting with Phil Reynolds, the resident of Frantic events from day one. He had a particular brand of Hard Dance that took the riffs and melody of trance but had the tempo and energy of Hard House superimposed upon it. This spawned the whole Hard Trance movement and Phil was very much a leader of that sound. In fact trance was very much on the way back at this time and Nukleuz always had its fingers in this particular pie with its Green label releases (which has continued to today).

BK “Revolution”:

We felt we had been part of a revolution in dance music and BK’s “Revolution” single was the culmination of that. It was the first vinyl only release to make the UK top 40 for probably 12 or 13 years at least and will most likely be the last (not that we can see into the future of course)!
