KRAAKPIEP
... Separates the Freaks from the Fakes ...
   
WTF?  


How it all started.

In June 2004 I founded KraakPiep.
The name stands for a specific rough sound, applicable on all kinds of styles.
Litterally translated from Dutch it means Crack Peep .. deep, harsh & squeeking sounds.
The reason is just to be independent, to have an own place to hide `n save and create my own movement.
I didn`t want to focus on the name `Industrial` in whatever category .. it`s just overused.
So this covers the way I describe harsh & hectic Electronical sounds.

KP means Underground, or real Hardcore to me. Not specific Hardcore House, but every music genre has it`s own Hardcore.
Jazz can be also HC, or Classical or HipHop.
Music in its deepest roots, where the basic isn`t fucked up by the mainstream thought.
And that is, in my opinion, the core of every music style.

Therefore, `de KraakPiep Show` was born specifically.
It all started on the 5th of December 2004 and still going on @ the Airpeace radio studio in Almere.
Together with DeesterĀ© & Robin Kampschoer I host this radio show every Sunday.
Giving you the alternative way of the deeper & harder styles of (mostly Electronic) music. And a lot of bullshit ofcourse.

Check the radio section for more info ..

Last but not least, the infamous `KraakPiepForum`.
Begin January 2004, the famous Masters of Hardcore label closed their forum because it wasn`t use-and helpful anymore for them.
Too much criticism and comments against their sound on their own forum .. but, it was a hideout for many people,
and remained so for years.
Luckily somebody could get a copy of the forum database ..and after some hours of discussion we wanted to resurrect the forum.

I
had the space and domain to host this forum, and in the end, the old
MoH forum became `het KraakPiep Forum` ... with the same Admins, Mods,
users & posts.

After a big forum crash in September 2005, we deleted all posts and users.
Now, almost 1 year later, we can welcome the 1000th registered user soon!!
It`s pretty well-known now with it`s own rules & borders.
With a lot of musical knowledge, many known DJ`s / Producer`s & Organisations on board,
even more opinions and do`s / don`ts, the KP Forum has raised itself to one of the biggest `Industrial Hardcore` forums,
with eyes open to many other styles and genres. Or not .. depends on the cheesyness ... hehe.

Just register and have a look. You`re more than welcome!!
But be aware: know what you are saying and have the guts to discuss .. because it`s getting rough sometimes. =)

Soon KP will have merchandise and stuff .. my plan is also to have KP as record label ..
so let`s see what the future brings with this concept.
But KP will stay and kick ass 24/7 as long as possible!!!


My thanx go out to:

Mitsj0l, [s.o.s] & Mental Wreckage for giving me the chance & help with this wicked forum.
DeesterĀ©, Robin Kampschoer & Ray for assisting me fully in my dream to have my own asskicking radio program
and ROBBERS for recording & upping this shit for a long time now.
Also to all the people who do and don`t believe in what I`m doing around
and the rest who helped to build KraakPiep to what it is now!!

Tits up!
