Happy Hardcore does not make me happy. It'n my opinion, it's some of the cheesiest music ever made, next to Celine Dion and Power Metal.

Just go here, HAPPY HARDCORE and listen to the radio!

Or, if you have iTunes, listen to it from there.

Happy Hardcore is awesome because you can run with it and feel pumped up because of its beat.

Honestly, what would you rather run to, Happy Hardcore or some stupid emo song?

Thought I'd just point this out; I was just listening to Happy Hardcore radio and on one of the DJ's mixes he stops the music and plays an audio file from a comedian who bashes Techno, I thought it was pretty funny.

He basically said, "I don't know what came first the ****ty music or the stupid drugs. The music started with a whole bunch of losers sitting around with a Macontosh and making noises, BEEP BEEP BEEP BOOP. And then they were like, 'This music ****ing sucks!' but then some guy said, 'Take these drugs first' and then the music became good, 'This music ****ing rules!'"

What in God's name is Happy Hardcore?


It's basically Hardcore Techno mixed with "hardcore" trance vocals. The "Happy" comes from the beat which is almost always over 160 BPM, thus making it good workout music.

Some of the vocals are kind of... "gayish" but at the same time the vocalist know how to sing decently.

Go to www.happyhardcore.com and listen to the radio. It's on iTunes also, with all the other radio stations, under the Electronica channel. It's called Hardcore.

what the hell is with this "hardcore" last time i heard hardcore was good 'ol head banging screaming stuff
With the blood of the ones he loved
Upon his filthy hands
He took a vow, never
Never to sin again.

Quote by dylan
what the hell is with this "hardcore" last time i heard hardcore was good 'ol head banging screaming stuff


it's been described as dance music's version of hardcore punk/metal many times because it's usually fast and hard, and in the case of gabber, very often distorted. a lot of people who listen to gabber and other types of hardcore dance music also love metal, or used to listen to metal.

if you wanna hear some, i'd recommend some gabber stuff like neophyte, e-noid, ophidian, nosferatu, promo, endymion, and evil activities. in fact, here's a song if anyone wants it (the distorted bass sounds awesome when it's blasted realllllly loud ). it's hosted on megaupload, so click the link then enter the letters from the image on the top right and click download to get the file:

E-Noid - DNA Theory (8.65mb)

on another end of the 'hardcore' spectrum, i'd also recommend some FiNRG (finnish freeform). artists like dj rx, alek szahala, carbon based, proteus, pain on creation, etc. this is a very different style and it's hard to describe. it's basically a mix up of the hardcore style with things like trance and drum n bass, and it works amazingly well. an example (right click, save as):

Alek Szahala - Dryad Machine (3.75mb)

if you're looking for something ridiculously fast, then speedcore is for you. artists like the speedfreak, mutante, interrupt vector and dj plague. check out one of Alek's other songs, it's 400+ bpm and fucking evil (right click, save as):

Alek Szahala - The Human Flesh Engine (4.22mb)

then there's breakcore, which is something like gabber crossed with distorted breaks/drum and bass. artists include noize creator, jackal and hide, venetian snares, scud and doormouse. an example (right click, save as):

Venetian Snares - Salt (4.6mb)

and finally, happy hardcore (also known as uk hard sometimes). it's called this for a reason - the music is pumping and fast, yet it's usually overlayed with really happy/sweet vocals and melodies. artists include hixxy, dj jfx, al twisted, breeze & styles and scott brown. this is what it typically sounds like (the start is a little weird because this was taken out of a mix, after about 1:40 is when it gets into it properly), on megaupload:

Darren Styles - Getting Better (Re-Con Remix) (4.34mb)

lol i got slightly carried away with this post and still didn't really cover everything, but meh. i doubt anyone will actually listen to these, but if you do, and you happen to like any of it, let me know and i'll hook you up with some similar stuff

and if people are still confused about the concept of hardcore being a dance genre and not hardcore punk/metalcore/whatever, i give up

Pretty cool. I never really listened to techno type music. Never knew it was called Happy Hardcore.

Im listening to that Dryad Machine and im about to start raving.
Most of the important things

#26
Despite having always hated Happy Hardcore, i was into "regular" hardcore and terrorcore (which we just called terror) around 1994/1995 when these subgenres were starting to get big. That was when the whole gabber scene was really blooming in the Netherlands (gabber is a Dutch word for "dude" or "buddy" or something), and living in a town that had some of the largest parties of the country every weekend, it was pretty much unavoidable to get in touch with it.

I haven't listened to it in ages, but large names were DJ Prophet, Buzz Fuzz, DJ Pavo, DJ Dano, Neophyte and DJ Paul (who later got treated as a sellout for making Happy stuff).

U R My Phantasy

That's a new song I heard on one of Stu Allens mixes (although it might not be new) I heard on Happy Hardcore radio... I don't know why I like that song, most people would probably think I'm gay for listening to it.... sometimes I think I'm gay for liking it and any happy hardcore...

Oh well, I make up for it when I listen to Hardcore Metal, which in a way is much like techno and its hundreds of genres.

Hardcore Nation 3 is coming out soon, that's supposed to be like a 3 disc set with the best mixes, mostly DJ'S from happy hardcore radio.

I got limewire and that DC++ cost money.

Most of the happy hardcore I have I just ripped off Happy Hardcore radio because I can't find any mixes by any of the Happy Hardcore DJ's on limewire.

So, basically, if I hear a mix on HH radio and like it, I have to listen to HH radio 24/7 until the mix is played again and then I got to hope I catch in time so I can rip it with Ripcast.

But it's free... at least for 30mb, then I have to start over...

all tracks used on those mixes were obtained legally, and all mixes have not been released on cd or anything like that, just distributed for free on the net by the respective DJs. pretty sure it is legal for them to be distributed for personal use, or DJs all around the world should be getting arrested lol but i guess i'll refrain sorry

To be legal they'd have to pay for the use of the tune and either pay a lump sum to the record company before they distributed it or give a bit every time someone took it. Clubs and bars and the like pay for the right to have the music playing to organisations like the PRS.

I've never really delved into the legality of DJ stuff, but I'm pretty sure they at least need clearance from the original artist (or their label) before making copies - although I believe demos to clubs and stuff are fine.
I'm sure the dance community is a bit lighter on the restrictions though as a hell of a lot of people need the tunes to DJ and stuff, just don't want to risk problems for UG with a ton of mixes being shared, a few here and there won't do harm though I'm sure (fingers crossed).

Don't worry too much. There are sites with huge databases that give free access to hundreds (sometimes thousands) of DJ sets with no problem.

The electronic music community survives on DJs so they don't cause problems, as some of the bigger more popular record labels might.


Plus the DJ often remixes the songs as he goes these days while mixing so its not the same as just playing songs in order like on a radio station. You are creating a new piece of art out of a collection of songs (or just a piece of crap if you suck )


Edit: I just checked, and I'm pretty sure that its only illegal if you use the song in a public performance (even then it most likely wont be noticed unless its a decent size or more) that you make money from. So the DJ who made the set (if its live) pays the first time (unless its not live then he doesn't) and people can listen to it and download it no problem.
