Enzyme Records came to be after Patrick van Kerckhoven decided to lay Gangsta Audiovisuals to rest. Contrary to popular belief Enzyme was not founded by Endymion and Nosferatu but by DJ Ruffneck. The idea behind making the world believe that he had retired was to give all of his artists an equal chance to develop themselves fully without having to stand in Van Kerckhoven’s shadow. Everyone believed his retirement to be real for at least two years; and some still do to this day. This was also the only option he saw to restart the label and continue it in a new style of hardcore. The move to Enzyme also produced the deliberate death of the ‘artcore’ sound made popular by Ruffneck Records.
