Filippo Calcagni aka Dj Mad Dog started his DJ career just as joke. In 1995 after 3 years of hard work with the tecnichs, he met two friends (an M.C. and a DJ) with whom he formed a team: HARDCORE TERRORISTS. With this team Filippo has a lot of success especially in his city Rome.
In 1996 the Hardcore Terrorists made their debut with their first live-act at the QUBE (one of the symbol club in Rome). After that night, the performances of this team followed one another and their success was unavoidable!
In 1997 the Hardcore Terrorists decided to organise hardcore parties in the capital to improve the scene. They made an alliance with other DJ’s and together with IMPULSE FACTORY, 3 VILLAGE and DJ GEPPO they formed the GABBERS ROMA. Even though that the hardcore movement grew excessively the organization of the GABBERS ROMA dissolved. But before of that the Hardcore Terrorists released in collaboration with IMPULSE FACTORY and THREE VILLAGE the record “Try to Make It Harder” on TRAXTORM RECORDS.
