    [Music] Hardstyle + Hardcore

    Hello my friends, so I noticed that there is a lack of hardstyle on this here forums so I decided it would be in the best interest of everybody to make a thread where we can all hang out, share and enjoy the glorious sound of hardstyle. So if you've got 'em, post 'em.

    Anything you're listening too, your favorite track, anything you want to share, anything you created, you name it. I'll kick start this with some of my favorites that I've heard over the years in no particular order.










    Plenty more but I dont wanna make a massive OP, so I'll post more after others post.

    Lets do this!

    Gentlemen and women, commence the posting.

    Edit: I have decided to also combine hardcore into this thread, so get posting :P

    What's a hard style, like what makes something hard style? Is there like a defining characteristic of the genre?

    "Hardstyle is an electronic dance genre mixing influences from hardtechno, hard house, hard trance, and hardcore. Hardstyle typically consists of a deep, hard-sounding kick drum, intense faded or reversed basslines accompanying the beat, a synth playing a melody, and detuned and distorted sounds. It bears some similarities to hard trance." Generally about 150bpm or so, that should be good enough yes?

    DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN. That would be the defining characteristic. b0sanac's description was a bit better.

    Yeah I started listening to your videos and its similar to hardcore trance, but like somehow harder.

    It just kinda screams "I'M SO HARD RIGHT NOW" And everybody responds back "I think we are all a little bit hard"

    It seems a little bit darker than trancecore though.

    Yeah, there is two sides to it really. What some would call "soft" hardstyle or sing-along songs that are played at raves and such and then the harder stuff some of which is posted above.

    This would be a fine example of that sort of softer sound.
