Trypticon (Conrad Hoyer) is a fairly young producer coming from Arnhem. He's working for the labels of Ruffneck: Gangsta and Supreme Intelligence (on the Supreme Intelligence label he is known as Ophidian). His first hit was the darkcore track "Dark comes rising". Trypticon has also started his own internet "label" to encourage other new and young hardcore producers.

Eugene van Brakel is, just like Coma Baby, a student in Delft. He followed a midi-course by Coma Baby, and that's how ge got to know Ruffneck. His style can be described as very dark and hard hardcore which isn't too fast: The typical Supreme Intelligence style. Meagashira is responsible for the anthem of the Artcore vs. Darkcore parties, a really cool track of which I don't know the name :(.
