    We've been maintaining a low profile here at Hardware HQ, working hard
    behind the scenes in preparation for 2010 - our 15 year anniversary.
    So we thought it was about time for a quick update on things to look
    out for in the coming months...

    RELEASES

    This year brings with it plenty of exciting projects to look forward
    to. Kicking off at the end of next month we will be releasing a label
    compilation entitled: Hardware XV - 15 Years Of
    Renegade Hardware
    .

    Released on triple CD and incorporating 30 tracks, this album will
    provide an in depth, retrospective look at the labels history.
    Featuring all the key tracks and artists from our back catalogue. The
    CD will be complimented by 3 triple pack vinyl EP's which will be
    released over the next 12 months and will contain remastered classics,
    many unavailable on vinyl for years. Full info & tracklisting to
    follow soon...

    Also due out in the first quarter we have a various artists
    compilation entitled Last Of A Dying
    Breed
    , expect tracks from Raiden,
    Vicious Circle, Dose & Menace, Calyx & Teebee, Ink, Loxy &
    Resound
    and many more. This album will be released on both
    CD & vinyl.

    Sticking with albums we are pleased to announce we currently have 4
    artist albums in the pipeline from key Hardware artists which include:
    Ink, Loxy, Raiden and a collaborative
    album from Vicious Circle & Universal
    Project
    . Release dates for these are still TBC as some of
    the projects are in their early stages but we'll be sure to update you
    with developments.

    Also we need to mention the Aquarius EP
    (HWARE15), featuring cuts from Raiden, NC-17, Loxy &
    Resound & BTK
    which is due for imminent release on
    promo....

    Renegade Hardware charges head on into 2010 with the first release of
    the year – The Aquarius EP. Taking on board a sonic assault from
    around the globe...

    AQUARIUS EP

    Cat No: HWARE15
    Released: 22nd FEB 2010
    Formats: 12” Vinyl / Download

    TRACKLISTING

    A) RAIDEN - AQUARIUS
    Kicking off proceedings we head straight to the title track – Aquarius
    by Raiden. Huge epic pads combine with razor sharp breaks and
    seriously heavy bass to create a truly spine chilling track. Aquarius
    captures the pure unadulterated sound of Hardware.


    B) NC-17 - ATTITUDE ERA
    Backing up the A side we welcome NC-17 to the fold with their Hardware
    debut. The duo cut straight to the chase to show you what they are all
    about with an all out bass driven roller in the form of Attitude Era.
    The subs on this track pound and grind the listener into submission.
    Taking no prisoners this is a savage bass bin work out.


    C) LOXY & RESOUND - PSYCHOLOGY MOVES
    Opening up disc two Hardware resident Loxy teams up with Finland’s
    Resound with “Psychology Moves”. Showcasing yet another hue in his
    already diverse audio palette, Loxy brings a tribal roll out. Straight
    up menacing & militant.


    D) BTK - NOT GOING BACK
    Finishing off the release in fine style we announce yet another
    Hardware debut, this time from Brazil’s BTK. Not Going Back is a
    hectic barrage of tech beats, laced with haunting vox and thunderous
    bass that will the leave the crowd punch drunk at any club in which
    its drawn.
