1997 Hardcore
97 was a great year for hardcore/gabber but also the peak of the gabber/hardcore scene. everywhere you went in the nederlands you saw kids wearing gabber merchandise. back home in denmark the scene was still very underground, gabber party's i denmark was run by deutsche club and turbulent crew.
the record shop of copenhagen had started to drop the hardcore releases, and it was getting impossible to get the vinyl we wanted. now an again baden baden had a few id&t releases, but it was not constant. therefore monkeyteam reinstated as a business and started to import hardcore our self. the name was monkeyteam mail order, but the point was mainly being able to strike deals with midtown, pcd and soundbase, who at the time distributed most of the hardcore releases.
