The Mover - Marc Acardipane was created by surgery
.. i've soon joined this forum and i have respect for the people here, also the opinions being raised, but i think that there are some producers that aren't mentioned here.. so i'll start few topics dedicated to few names that i really respect and then i'll see where this will go..<!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->
The man that made killer, dark, influencial tracks in the early 90's - Marc Trauner aka Marc Acardipane. I think that his style is unmatchable, pretty much unique like early aphex twin but in a completely different direction - raw, harsh, cold techno. There is no shit releases on his &quot;Planet Core Productions&quot; label, almost all the production there is pure quality, the later stuff can be considered gabber structuraly but there is feeling and creativity that distinguish the tracks there from the anything else at the time (late 90's). The man have more different alias than any other producer imo,which alone doesnt mean anything but at least half of them are exellent, hard dance music. Even if some people havent heard anything from this producer everyone knows &quot;We Have Arrived&quot;, one of the most important tracks and a rival to energy flash imo
My favs are:

The Mover - Frontal Sickness 1 &amp; 2, Final Sickness
Mescalinum United - Reflections of 2017 ep - 1990
Mescalinum United - We Have Arrived - Aphex Twin &amp; The Mover Remixes - 1992
Ace The Space - 9 Is A Classic - 1992
Free Base International - The Futureworld ep - 1991
The Possessed - The Lord Is My Avenger - 1992
Program 1 - Louder Than A Bomb - 1992
Spiritual Combat - Hellrazor ep - 1992
T-Bone Castro - It's Me T-Bone' Fuckin Castro - 1992
White Breaks - Volume 1, 2 - 1993

any thougts and opinions appreciated cheers

Marc is a true pioneer. He's had his hands in loads of styles people may not know, too - you might be put off at hearing that he pioneered hardcore techno, but he made some wicked dark electro stuff (Dance Ecstasy #1 is a wicked dark electro tune from 91), lots of wicked techno, and was even had some involvement in the beginnings of German breakbeat / jungle (with Miro, who is also a legend...) - eg, White Breaks. (OK that was Miro :-))

He has also produced music that is so much darker than anything that came out of the darkcore scene - Final Sickness LP makes most of the dark labels sound like Slammin Vinyl, hehe...

i think the big sign of his talents is that he's pioneered so much, released so many trainspotter friendly, obscure and amazing experimental stuff...AND created lots of big anthems too, within gabba and that euro hardcore scene.

He's made a big influence on electronic music, its just a shame his impact is less often acknowledged cos he's associated with gabber, really! I suspect even a lot of the gabba-haters on here would find something in his discography they like.

My favourites:

The Mover - Nightflight
T-Bone Castro - Urban Partyzan
Ace the Space - Go Voodoo (T Bone Castro rmx)
Nasty Django - Hardcore Motherfucker
Pilldriver - Apocalypse Never
Mescalinum United - The Second Coming
Turbulence - Disaster Area

If you wanna big up Marc though, don't forget Miro - responsible for so many wicked tunes, again obscure and dancefloor-friendly stuff alike, and again spanning so many genres.

Miro is a pioneer too and also, like mr Acardipane, way underrated and unaknowledged.. havent heard much from him but i like his relases under the alias Stickhead and Steve Shit - the later having released wicked uk hardcore style tracks with the first records and going on later with powerfull drum'n'bass tunes that makes some jungle classics sound overrated (Scorpion and Cobra releases)
Final Sickness is one of the best dance albums ever imo, althought the coldness would make you run away instead of dancing to it if played in big room lol

yeah, that's his name.

now he is an even bigger legend, imo. not only for his music, but his attitude - for example, a few years ago, he voluntarily retired from the mainstream and helped some of the new talents on his label start their own label - even though he could have stayed at the top himself, he felt ti was better for the music for a new generation to take over.

that's something you definitely don't see often from big names!

oops, i forgot this is a Marc Acardpiane big up thread. One other thing i like about Marc is that after all he's done, he went and collaborated with Scooter - a lot of people would see that as a sellout, tbh i think it's fantastic, purely cos it irritates the self-important trainspotters who like to idolise him!

Early stuff from Marc were nice and dark. He like most of the other, who moved into world of software producing, lost all their sounds and ideas. :/

Hard words.. but ah.. so correct.. Some other famous producers fell to this same software-trap,too.. it's a shame.. but things go forward.. ;)

have you heard the stuff that Buzz Fuzz produced when he moved to software recently? I mean, I was never a HUGE fan of his work. But man is his new stuff awful :neutral:

On the other hand though some people like Producer haven't dropped in quality because of it (IMO)

Marc Trauners early stuff is fuckin wicked, He's a proper underated underground legend <!-- s=D&gt; --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/eusa_clap.gif" alt="=D&gt;" title="Applause" /><!-- s=D&gt; -->

i agree with the comments so far. Marc Trauner no longer releases tracks under the alias that made history.. as far as i know, he is not going to appear live as the mover again or release anything new .. maybe some new stuff with new alias, things have to go forward for better or worse. I personally don't blame the man for collaborating with scooter. I've red an article about him on the net and it was written in 98. There were comments that &quot;pcp&quot; were acknowledged for a while in 92, but never fully recognized, becouse the production didn't fit in any genre.. tracks that came from the label were't played from dj's, they were too slow for the gabber scene and to harsh for other genres. The Mover himself remained underground despite the production success. Also &quot;pcp&quot; spawned many sublabels that closed one after another, and only one existing today - Kotzaak Ltd. The article shows that even back in 98 there wasn't serious recognition for the producer and the label, in time when dance music was still dominating. Even Liam Howlett admits that he did a remix in 93 (the TTF &quot;retribution&quot;), which he really hated and did becouse the lack of funds to continue production. Same case with Mr. Acardipane imo, people are less interested in innovative and challenging sounds in the 2000's, so he pretty much didn't have much choise.. I also think that he was pissed from the lack of recognition that lasted despite all he did, and collaborating with Scooter was a risly attempt to cahnge that.. at least he is still hardcore, i've heard few tracks that werent that bad - they sounded ok to me, althought not being special. Better than the stuff that comes from Liam Howlet imo

i think he was underground deliberately though. he never used to put his name on his releases for a long time, being known as The Mover, and using so many different aliases.

I also don't think he wasn't appreciated - DE2001, Cold Rush, Super Special and Kotzaak released tracks which were huge within hardcore. Hardcore Muthafucka, Stereo Murder, French Connection, 9 is a Classic...he made lots of mainstream anthems as well as the cutting-edge stuff ;)
