NeoQor avatar

If there are three words to describe NeoQor, they're speed, aggression, and versatility. Representing the upstart collective, Kaijucore Entertainment, worldwide hardcore label, Future State Music, and his own independent label, Qor Values, this up-and-comer from Dallas, Texas is bringing his own unique sounds straight from the Lone Star State to a rave near you! NeoQor has gained himself a reputation for taking crowds on multi-style journeys through the vast catalogue of underground rave music. Whether it be the epic melodies and earth-shaking bassdrums of hardstyle, the uplifting, cheery vibes of happy and UK hardcore, or the sheer brutality and relentlessness of gabber and industrial hardcore, NeoQor is no stranger, and can happily deliver that and more in a single set. The one thing you can count on: Everything played is significantly harder and faster than your typical EDM.

NeoQor's productions follow the same theme. His hunger for speed-fueled, melody-driven rave music has only continued to grow, and over the past two years, he has worked with numerous producers and performers from around the country, including Clayfighter, Biotronix, Darmoc, and Zoe VanWest. Meanwhile, working in close collaboration with his wife, co-writer, and favorite vocalist, Kitty Chan, he has released a number of memorable vocal hardcore and hardstyle anthems that have gained him a reputation as a notable producer and songwriter in the worldwide hard dance community, with his 2018 collaboration with Kitty Chan, "Eyes Meet Mine", seeing remixes from producers in the US, UK, and Canada. But his foray into the creation of balls-to-the-wall dance music reached an apex in the summer of 2018 with the release of his official remix of S3rl's classic anthem, "Dealer", on Relentless Digital.

As of today, NeoQor has performed at events all over the United States, from Kansas, to Colorado, to California, to New York—not to mention in major cities all over his home state! In his home city of Dallas, he has had the honor of being local support for Kutski's Keeping the Rave Alive tour as well as for Angerfist's first Dallas appearance in 2016.

NeoQor's objective is clear: to spread the sounds of Texas hard dance to raves around the world. His motto: If it's fast and hard, it's getting played (or made)!

Kitty Chan avatar

Everything starts with a dream and that is all Kitty Chan needed to begin her journey. With her spunky personality and her passion for making music, she strives to make her mark in the hard dance community and inspire others to share their voice as well.

A lot of her inspiration stems from Japanese rock bands and the culture created around the anime community, which is where she first was introduced to happy hardcore and, subsequently, the underground world of hard dance music. It was within these communities that her creativity blossomed and sparked her passion as a singer and songwriter.

Having worked on tracks with her producer and nowhusband, NeoQor, Kitty Chan would go on to perform at one of America's largest anime convention dances, Metrocon Massive, alongside world renowned vocalist, Zoe VanWest, and from there continue to perform throughout her home state at events such as Pixel Invasion and Love & Lasers!

Her first album debut with NeoQor on Future State Music's "Ravestars" compilation opened the door for more collaborations with artists such as legendary S3RL, Tamerax, and many more! Currently, Kitty Chan is focusing her attention on creating more quality music and contributing to the hard dance and cosplay communities as a co-founder of the newest anime rave production company, Kaijucore Entertainment. So stay on your toe beans and keep your ears perked, because you won't want to miss what she has coming next!
