When it comes to raw, forward-thinking rave music, the UK owes an innumerable debt to 4Hero. Originally comprised of Marc Mac, Dego, Iain Bardouille and Gus Lawrence, the North London outfit stand alongside the likes of Shut Up & Dance and The Scientist (aka DJ Hype and Phil ‘Pure Science’ Sebastiane) as the very first pioneers of the bass-loaded, sample-heavy form of breakbeat music that would come to be known as hardcore.
Formed in 1989, their visionary Reinforced Records label fast became the definitive UK hardcore label. Always pushing at the next phase while others were caught up in trends, 4Hero’s own productions the rave template into edgier territory as tracks like the bleep-fucked, cautionary drug tale ‘Mr Kirk’s Nightmare’ and hip-hop indebted ‘Cookin Up Ya Brain’ became responsible for the darkcore sound that helped birth drum & bass – a genre, in itself, which 4 Hero took even further into the future.
