Hardcore Familia born in 2003, as an answer to the need to amalgamate artistic and musical interests and deviations,
in a place which few alternatives offers to provincial monotony.
Their perseverance and abnegation to Hip Hop at first, evolved then into underground,
allowed survival and growth of the collective, ranging its own artistic activities from djing to audio-video production,
analogical and digital photography, painting, airbrush art, digital art, industrial design in different fields,
handmade prints, car audio installations; all greatly defined by a dark and “industrial” taste,
with great influences from biomechanoid art, dark-art, horror, sci-fi but of course from classical art too.
Hardcore Familia essence is the incessant countertrend research, through different techniques which join existent elements with new useful connections.
New and functional adequately illustrate the creative act substance:
a getting over in force rules (the new) to introduce a further and shared norm (the functional).
The two dimensions of the creative process are identifiable, a process which puts together disorder and order, paradox and method.

The Crew

In the Drum’n’bass/Crossbreed musical field protagonist is RugeBoy (Cristian Ruggero)
with his new side project called “Jaberkwok” (RugeBoy&Undead) followed by Hero (Davide Martini) as Vj.
We have been guests at many parties of national importance, local radio programs and we’ve been streaming for a year on dnbradio.com
Meanwhile the dnb events continues in some club around Italy, like Fabbrika (Vi) and Smallville (Vi), Ekidna (Mo), Pedro (Pd), Fucina Controvento (Ve), as many collaborations with international djs and producers like Counterstrike, Derek, Misanthrop, Phace and Hallucinator. Hero (Davide Martini) is the creative of the crew, the mastermind behind logos, t-shirts and any creative inputs of all HcF activity. Sten (Stefano Pento) is author and developer for most of our projects, 3D designer and audio-video producer;he boasts collaborations with car firms for prototypes creation, with important interior decorators, with singers and companies that rely on him for musical videos and TV commercials.
The greatest satisfaction with art comes from its most natural form, which allows the representation of emotions, with Hero and his airbrush, acrylics and resins on props like canvas or objects of common use, transforming and giving them a dark, decadent and biomechanoid look.
Giossa (Matteo Fontana) deals with building parts for our works, expert in many fields like mechanics, electronics and above all, hi-fi audio development.

Dnb Dj&Vj Events

Events Flyers

HCF has been pioneering dnb/crossbredd since 2004.

We dropped hard beats at private parties, rave parties, clubs and probably on your walkman…

We love drum’n’bass, ignorance and violence!

Exhibitions n stuff

We’ve been partecipating to art exhibitions and we introduced our own art nights.

Hardcore Familia showcases were made of music mixed and produced by Rugeboy and Alx, video projections made by DM, our artworks around the venue with photographs, paintings and sculptures, and goth belly dancers on the stage.
