Nukleuz: A Decade of Dance Mayhem – Year 2005

Nukleuz: A Decade of Dance Mayhem – Year 2005

2005: Rebirth of hardcore. Having joined the company full time in 2004 Dave Louca brought with him a strong affiliation with hardcore, Nukleuz’s traditional involvement in the scene and the full to capacity raves country wide, moving into this thriving genre was unavoidable. Following a successful Hardcore EP Nukleuz approached Warners with the idea of a Hardcore Nation album. Noticing a huge opportunity they agreed and the series was born. It went on to sell in excess of 200,000 copies.

Renewing a relationship with long term Nukleuz producer Stu Allan (who worked with Nukleuz head honcho Peter Pritchard on both Clock & Visa projects) and building new relationships with DJ Seduction, Robbie Long and a host of extremely talented, innovative and exciting new producers the first album in the series was a hit selling 65k+ copies, making it the biggest selling hardcore album in a decade! A second equally large album followed shortly along with a host of chart topping Hardcore albums from Universal (Clubland Xtreme Hardcore), Ministry of Sound and Resist (Bonkers).
