The Montreal Hardcore Resistance: A movement founded by the former head of "HAF Prod." (where he threw over 10 parties over the span of two years) to attempt to rebuild the MTL Hardcore scene. Since its creation in 2014, the crew has thrown two major parties and is planning on many more, including some featuring international Hardcore acts.
NightKandi: A company founded by the former front man of "Black & White Productions" (the former Happy Hardcore party crew) with the intention of reviving the Happy Hardcore scene in our beautiful city. Since the return of this crew in 2014, they have thrown three massive parties, featuring DJs from across the globe including Dj Entity, MR. Panda, and even DJ Gammer!
Finally, the two have joined forces in order to bring you some dope parties, starting with Hardcore For the Soul!!!!!
We've decided to use our party planning powers for the good of humanity, which is why this time around we will be donating all profits towards Free the Children!!!

Unfortunately, it is only the PROFITS that go towards the cause, so if you want to ensure that we have a good amount to give them, you can make separate donations at the information kiosk!
As per usual, this is a Hardcore party, but having the collaboration in mind, we've decided to have a decent balance between the happy and the core. So, get ready for a night of Hardcore diversity!

He instantly fell in love with hardstyle and soon began to produce under the name The Divider, which he has used for many years. Now a proud part of Hard Dance Nation, a North American label, Kevin has a unique style of euphoric melodies, banging kicks and some fresh new sounds. In the past few months, he has begun to go under his new alias, Rewind, but his style hasn't changed, he is STILL Hard to the Core!!!
