Rebekah is launching a new release series ‘Go Hard or Go Hardcore Vol.1’ (GHOGH) on her Elements label, featuring a new 20-track V/A compilation. Have an exclusive first listen to Rebekah and Malke’s ‘The Way’ below.

Released in batches of five tracks over five weeks, the collection was inspired by the recent proliferation of the hard techno sound, and features a bevy of international heavyweights united by their innovative approach to the genre. The compilation – which was curated by Rebekah for her Elements imprint – forms part of the producer’s ‘Go Hard or Go Hardcore’ movement which will encapsulate releases, events and merchandise over the next 12 months and beyond.

The second batch of releases – ‘GHOGH Vol.1 (Part 2)’ – is set for release later this week, featuring hard techno heat from the likes of Aja, Skoden, X, Masicaya, and Rebekah herself alongside Brazilian DJ and producer, Malke. The duo’s collaborative cut ‘The Way’ bookends the latest instalment with a slab of hyperactive rave intensity, characterised by a deep, distorted beat buried beneath layers of growling acid bass and burrowing synthesisers.

To mark the release, the Birmingham-via-Berlin producer will perform a special label showcase at HÖR in Berlin on 25th April alongside three other artists from the compilation (TBC), followed by a club night at Club OST the following night.

The second batch of tracks from ‘Go Hard or Go Hardcore Vol.1’ lands this week, with the compilation out in full on 26th April. Pre-save the release here, and have an exclusive first listen to Rebekah and Malke’s ‘The Way’ below.

In 2022, Rebekah’s Elements label released a 10-track compilation featuring tracks made by a number of techno producers during lockdown.
