Masters of Hardcore-acts T-Junction, Tomcat and Rudeboy join up with MC Syco to bring you the best of their repertoire under the moniker of Eastside Connection. T-Junction, Tomcat and Rudeboy all have a large history with MC Syco. Erkan Coskunsu was the driving force behind the legendary Oldschool Madness events, that took place in several locations in the east of the Netherlands. A variety of DJ’s from the Twente region have made their debut on a big stage at the Oldschool Madness parties, including T-Junction, Tomcat and Rudeboy. As a matter of fact, Tomcat and Rudeboy decided to form a duo when they played together during an Oldschool Madness event. T-Junction has always been busy with making music.
His big breakthrough came when he got signed to The Third Movement. On this imprint, he had many hits like “Checkmate”, “The Rise And Fall”, “Hollow Points” featuring Prowler, “What’s Up With Life”, “The Voice Of Power” with MC Syco, “Livin’ The Hard Life” (both featuring Osiris & MC Syco), “Adrenaline Shotz” with Osiris and “I Declare War” featuring Alex B. due to his successful releases, Tim got booked all over the world and performed on events like Masters of Hardcore, Dominator, Thunderdome, Hellraiser and Defqon.1 In 2009, T-Junction decided to join the world’s largest hardcore imprint: Masters of Hardcore, which led to the very successful “Without Me” EP. Also, Tim did huge work with remixes for artists like Angerfist, DJ Delirium & Delusional and Emphasis.
T-Junction is currently working with artists like Angerfist, Tomcat, Rudeboy and many others to continue his ongoing successtory. Tomcat & Rudeboy met during the DJ-courses at youth centre Radar, a place where lots of artists started their careers. Since their first duo-performance on Oldschool Madness, Tom and Dave have been an inseparable act. They performed on events like Dominator, Masters of Hardcore, Megarave, Earthquake and Hellbound. Their common interest in producing their own tracks became bigger than ever and led to several remixes and tracks for labels like The Third Movement and Digidance.
They got scouted by Masters of Hardcore, which led to the classic collaboration with Angerfist on the “Alles Kut Enter” EP, a statement to all the anonymous criticism on the internet. This big release was followed by several tracks on Masters of Hardcore releases like the underrated “Soul Of A Warrior”, “Pull the Strings” and more upcoming bombs! MC Syco is a lyrical artist with one of the longest resumes in hardcore history. Erkan is the regular MC of the legendary Shadowlands Terrorists and hosted hundreds of events like Masters of Hardcore, Dominator, Syndicate, Thunderdome, Defqon.1 and Q-Base. Also, Erkan was one of the driving forces in keeping the hardcore scene alive in the east of Holland.
