Massimiliano Monopoli (Maxx) & Gianluca Rossi (Giangy) are the guys behind the name The Stunned Guys. They started in 1993, equipped with Atari ST computer and an Akai S1000 sampler. However beginning was tough, all the demos they sent to the main dutch record labels were refused. But one day they received a phone call from Paul Elstak from the cult label Rotterdam Records, and a few days later they were finally mixing their first record "Nidra e.p.", which was released in 1994. The feedback from the hardcore scene was so good that Maxx & Giangy decided to try 100% to transform their passion into their main job. From that moment on, everything grew so fast: performances at many European raves, collaborations with the main producers and labels and, most of all, an incredible feeling with their fan base: in a short time The Stunned Guys took their "made in Italy" sound to the top of the international hardcore scene. On 1996, after many attempts to collaborate with Italy-based record labels, they founded Traxtorm Records. Traxtorm sound quickly became an inspiration source for the other producers and labels.
After more than 12 years of activity, Maxx & Giangy are still producing their music and taking it all around the world… their motto is "Hardcore will never die!!!"
