The Sickest Squad
They are without any doubt among the most popular acts in the hardest life form of hardcore.
As some might now, the origin of The Sickest Squad was the Sick DJ Team. Three guys teamed up in 2000: Jacopo Stevanato, Samuele Gozzo and Sirio Carino. After dropping their first EP “Sick 001”, they got in touch with The Stunned Guys, who released their “Inspector Fucker” four tracker in 2003 on the G-Net imprint and appeared on the Traxtorm Power 2003 compilation. After this release, they took the time to develop their sound towards the upcoming frenchcore sound. After tweaking, improving and very hard work, they sent a demo of their work to mr. Frenchcore: DJ Radium.
2010 was definitely their biggest year in their career. Jacopo and Samuele got to play at a lot of big events in The Netherlands: they have become headlining acts on festivals and in the clubs. It was also the year they signed a deal with Most Wanted DJ to represent them as their bookings agency.
All the hard work as innovators of the Frenchcore sound has payed off. After performing on Masters of Hardcore – Italian Mayhem in 2010, they finally get to play at the world’s biggest hardcore event and finally create “The Sickest Squad Concert” concept which every year bring to the people a full Sickcore overdose.
2012 was an important year for their music career cause the team finally release “Opera Prima” which is considered unquestionably the album of the year for planet Hardcore and they also joined two big groups.: “This is hardcore”, the biggest hardcore collective ever made in the history composed by 21 of world best hardcore producers and “Thunderdome” crew who gave them their own radio show every last wednesday of the month on Thunderdome Radio.
