HARDCORE TANO*C

Overview

Tanoclogo.jpg

HARDCORE TANO*C is an independent doujin Japanese music label founded by Yoshikazu Nagai (who at the time used the Akai Hito alias) in 2003, originally under the name of ヾ(゜Д゜)ノハードコアタノシー (Hardcore Tanoshii). It changed to its current name of HARDCORE TANO*C in 2007, after the release of the album HARDCORE SYNDROME. The label features a store which sells the most notable doujin music releases, and is well known for their frequent live events that are regularly organized throughout the years, including the recent S2TBTANO*C ones done in collaboration with kors k's S2TB Recording label.

Since 2011, HARDCORE TANO*C has also been very closely linked with BEMANI, most notably in beatmania IIDX and SOUND VOLTEX. Many of HARDCORE TANO*C's members are frequent contributors to BEMANI, and KONAMI has even collaborated with the label for a few of their own album releases.

Many guest artists have appeared in HARDCORE TANO*C compilations, including Ryu☆, kors k, DJ Shimamura, m1dy, M-Project, JAKAZiD(as Joshka), Hommarju, Camellia, lapix, C-Show, Maozon, Nhato, Dustvoxx and Akira Complex.

Trivia

  • HARDCORE TANO*C's store sells beatnation RHYZE vs HARDCORE TANO*C and the beatmania IIDX 21 SPADA ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK VOL.2 album; it's the only doujin-related store to sell beatnation Records releases.
    • beatnation RHYZE vs HARDCORE TANO*C sold at the TANO*C store featured a limited, unique front cover which only shown the participating TANO*C artists (except P*Light and Shohei Uno).
  • Since 2014, BEMANI top-ranker player DOLCE. works for HARDCORE TANO*C by making megamixes for the label's compilations, as well as being the opening DJ for their live events. In late 2016, he produced his first compilation, NANSUKA COLLECTION, where he also appeared on its front cover.
  • The S2TBTANO*C events organized by HARDCORE TANO*C and S2TB Recording always feature DJ sets by Tetsuya Tamura as Y&Co., with all of the BEMANI songs done under that alias played live.
  • P*Light and Shohei Uno are the only HARDCORE TANO*C members to be also beatnation RHYZE ones. In BEMANI, both being part of the latter group takes the priority.
