The Amsterdam based Mokum Records started out in 1992.
Its first release came out in the beginning of 1993, when hardcore was just about to take off big time in the Netherlands.
In a few years time, both Mokum Records and the hardcore scene in Holland exploded to gigantic proportions – raves of 20.000 gabbers were no exception – and the whole movement became a specific cutural phenomenon with its own fashion and music.
