Rotterdam Records was a Dutch record label founded in 1992. It released hardcore and gabber music.[1]

History[edit]

The label was set up by Paul Elstak who later quit Mid-Town Records to start his own label Offensive Records at Rige Entertainment. DJ Neophyte and DJ Panic took control of the label and three other labels (Forze Records, Neophyte Records and Terror Traxx).

The label stopped in 2012 when Mid-Town Records became bankrupt.[2]

In 1992, the label brought out the track 'Alles naar de klote' by Euromasters and 'Poing' by Rotterdam Termination Source, which came to number 2 in the top 40.
