Founded in 2017 Hard Trance Europe was a fresh concept  launched by UK Industry worker Nick Coles (aka Nick The Kid) with a vision to unite the tougher end of the Trance music spectrum. 

The first 12 months alone saw over 30 releases from artists the world over and regular support from scene-leaders such as Paul Van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Solarstone, Indecent Noise, Scot Project and many more.  Coupled with regular press features in the Trance pages of DJ Mag, DJ Mag (Italy) and DMC World Magazine, HTE has certainly made its mark in a very short space of time, proving also that Hard Trance music very much has a place within the Trance arena. 

With four coloured divisions catering for everything from the more uplifting sounds, through Tech Trance, European, Acid, Classic Hard Trance, Freeform and beyond, HTE’s quest for breaking down musical barriers is very much in process, and winning a lot of fans and fresh demos with its eclectic approach and consistent output.  

2018 also saw the release of Hard Trance Europe - Volume One, a double CD and digital album that has been well received especially in Europe, cementing the label further as a reliable and trusted platform for DJ's, clubbers and consumers. 

Not satisfied with just being a label, HTE has also held numerous successful club events in the UK and is currently pitching for global dates also to take the concept to new territories and fans!
