Human Resource - Dominator
Initially ‘Human Resource’ had 4 members: Guido Pernet (Producer- MC) Johan Van Beek & Jasper Drexhage (Keyboards) & Robert Mahu (Stage Mixer). They were joined too my 80 AUM Rapper & former pro basketball player Larenzo Nash. Chicago US born Nash was the infamous voice used on “Dominator” in 1991..
‘Dominator’ was a huge success, one of the first records ever to use the “Hoover” effect, which was created using a Roland Alpha Juno 2 synthesiser. HR released their first EP / Album entitled “Dominating the World”. This was very early house in style & extremely different from “Dominator”.
As 92 began & Human Resource prepared to embark upon new ventures & succeed with more releases. At This time Johan Van Beek quit the group. Pernet didn’t want another Keyboard player so instead hired a Rapper, the former MC of Quadrophonia Marvin D. He stayed with the group until 1995 before leaving to start his own label with his childhood friend Ray Slijngaard from ’2 Unlimited’, in which time HR had released such tracks as “Rave-O-Lution” & “Fuck Them” as well as another Album “Kicking Noise of Rotterdam”. At this time (end of 94 / start of 95) the Rave scene has evolved onto unique styles, now known as Gabber / Rotterdam Hardcore.
