THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF EUROPE is a power noise/ hard techno outfit from the Netherlands. They blend in elements of funk, disco, hip hop, dancehall, EBM, techno and the likes in harsh powernoise. This explosive cocktail of influences made them into one of the leading powernoise acts in the world, and an act destined to explode every dancefloor. tPROE started out on the 4th of june 2000, when [K] bought a version of Cubase VST 3.5 and started experimenting with it. On this and the following days the first demoalbum "Cumulonimbus" was made and released on CDr. This album contains 6 darkambient noise tracks, and received some good attention. In the following years tPROE released more demoalbums. tPROE never believed in short demo's for promotion and started releasing albums from the start. The second demo album "Thirst" marked the shift to rhytmnic noise. Some tracks were darkambient like on the first album, and others were already hard stompers like the latter work. On the third album "Steel and honour" the shift was complete, and apart from an isolated track here and there tPROE became a powernoise/rhytmnic industrial band.
