The renowned Dutch DJ and producer Richard Koek—known to most by his stage name Drokz—is considered one of the founding figures in the darkcore-terror-speedcore scenes. Having spent many years as the opening MC of the huge hardcore festival Thunderdome, he is known by virtually everyone who listens to the music. Drokz appeared regularly on a Dutch TMF program about hardcore music called Hakke Ehhh!, on which he shared details about the scene. He also contributes to Thunder Magazine as a columnist, where he is known for his ranting tirades against people who are trying to destroy the musical scene that he feels he helped create. Beyond producing his own music, he helps to provide an outlet to up and coming talent through his label Cunt Records.
