"Today The Trauma center is an internationally known independent label, as the group has developed an impressive following overseas in countries like Switzerland, France, Germany, and The Netherlands with their older release from 1994 Rhymes Overflowin, to their 2001 release, Hardcore Underground Gritty, to the last Recorded album entitled “Game of Death” Released in 2009."

Their first release "Thick Klick"/ "Emergency" 12″ single, came out in 1995 via Trauma Center Productions. This rare wax will be reissued in 2014 by D.J. Rocksteady himself.

Dj Rocksteady has recently put online some old and rare stuff taken from the original masters. The most interesting albums to me in all the discography are "Rhyme Overflowin" from 1994 which has been reissued on vinyl by Dope Folks Records in 2013, and "Emergency" from 1996.
