A Rough Guide To... (Happy) Hardcore

(Happy) Hardcore Is a style of dance music based around the 4/4 beat, although can contain breakbeats and other structures and usually is in the 160-180BPM range.

It evolved from Rave music in the early 90's, Happy Hardcore took all the lighter elements and 4/4 beat whilst Jungle (which later became Drum and Bass) took the breakbeat structure and darker elements.

Rave also evolved into Gabba in the 90's although this tends to be heavier and much faster and was more popular in mainland Europe than the UK.

The tracks I've picked cover a period from 1995 right upto 2010, Including a lot of Piano based hardcore, Freeform hardcore (which is another mutation) along with some Gabba which I always liked to build upto when I used to DJ this style of music.
