Deathchant represents the UK Hardcore/Gabber label run by Hellfish.

Deathchant, under the control of Julian Cobb aka Hellfish emerged initially as a continuation of his breakbeat hardcore releases on Dance Bass. The later releases on its sub-label Bogwoppa (which was still operational alongside Deathchant as late as 1996) straddled the divide between happy hardcore and harder Dutch gabber but it was in the grooves surrounding the grinning demonic face of the Deathchant logo where the real innovation was happening.

Right from the first few releases it was clear that the label had its own sound, noticeable by their absence were many of the already clichéd elements being turned out by Dutch gabber labels at the time and in were swathes of distortion, classic hip hop samples a-plenty and tracks that bent and twisted in all sorts of unnatural directions.

Up until release 20 the label had featured all-UK artists such as Diplomat, Dolphin and Producer alongside Hellfish himself but release 21 featured French duo Micropoint (DJ Radium and Al Core) who had made a big impression on the underground as far back as 1995.

Unlike many UK hardcore techno labels, Deathchant lived to see the start of the new millennium and finished off the 90s ploughing a deeper, darker furrow while a lot of gabber was still recovering from the end of a DJ Paul-led foray into what was basically hi-speed euro-pop.


But mostly the Deathchant sound in the first few years of its existence was old skool rap samples coupled with diamond-hard beats. Witness DJ Producer taking a sample as familiar as Rakim’s ‘Pump Up The Volume’ lyrics, spread them over a pitch-shifting kick in ‘Only I Can Do It’ and sending it off in all sort of crazy directions.

Deathchant has also been a label happy to nurture new UK talent from artists who in their turn were influenced down the years by the original Deathchant sound such as Teknoist, El_Fin and Autopsy & Tugie. The label took the brave move of giving an artist like Micron (who had only had a handful of releases) the space to experiment with the double-pack album ‘Globalisation’ whereupon he proceeded to out-Hellfish the man himself with tracks sliced and diced to microscopic levels.

After 50+ singles, 10+ albums, several compilations, a stamped metal cake tin filled with goodies, airplay all over Radio 1 and tracks licensed across Europe, the USA and beyond. The label recently moved its marketing and distribution to Audio Sickness, a international collaboration of like-minded artists and label-owners under the auspices of Bryan Fury and Hellfish (now based in France). So after 15 years or so it finally comes to pass that the label most synonymous with UK hardcore techno no longer operates out of the UK. But still, Britain’s loss is Europe’s gain.
