Profile:
Though wArchetype is a relatively new name, the man behind it is no stranger in the world of hardcore as this DJ & Producer from The Netherlands was formerly known as Mental Wreckage and label boss of Symp.tom, the Industrial Hardcore subdivision of Neophyte Records. Notorious for his refined dark taste in music, a good amount of compilations, mixes and releases came from his hand during the last decade, including remixes for Meccano Twins and Neophyte and collabs with Moleculez and The Relic. More recently, he joined the ranks of the Dark Descent and Noisj family, including their Booking Agency, and lots of new material is coming up as we speak.

As a DJ, wArchetype is known for his excellent mixing skills, fine selection of tracks and unique level of darkness. Some of his former gigs include Ground Zero, Thunderdome, Mysteryland, Hardshock Festival, Defqon.1, Nightmare Outdoor (with a Symp.tom label area in 2009!), Masters of Hardcore, Nature One and many more. If you like your beats served raw, twisted & pitch dark, get ready for a treat.
