Nice happy hardcore track by fractilx, I like this guy he actually wrote a song on one of my friends. It's dedicated to M.A. Larson, famous TV screenwriter.

Seems like an epic hardcore battle of eternal destiny here. Have you checked @DJ Omnimaga's discography already? If not you probably should.

I misread "Let the fun commence" as "Let the beat commence". :P ANyway we might want to not post links or Youtube videos of entire commercial DJ mixes from albums sold in stores like Bonker mixes, in case. Individual tracks or Youtube vids of independent or live DJ sets might be fine, though.

Anyway I wonder what type of hardcore you like the most? In my case it's more German happy hardcore first, by far, then UK hardcore second, but for UK hardcore it's mostly the stuff from 2002 to 2005 or so, and in third place happy hardcore as most of you know it.

I also don't mind freeform and old school (or pre-hardcore) stuff, but it depends of the song. For the rest  what I will like is usually a mix of multiple genres. As for examples of songs from each of the aforementioned genres I like, here are some below:

German happy hardcore


UK Hardcore


Happy Hardcore


Freeform


Old-school, pre-1994 happy hardcore (in this case, 1992!)



About german happy hardcore, my favorite artist is Blumchen and here's one of my favorite songs from her (from 1997):

My favourite stuff is the new stuff AND the old stuff , hahahah. Listen to the newer stuff more, though

Anyway thought it time for another old skool tune, check this-->


And he he another Vibes n Livelee mix for you all as I have to go soon... this one is from 1998

Yes it is from a tape pack but tape pack producers never really got the rights to use the tunes they had on.... so I think we can get away with it DJ lol. Copies of Bonkers etc I agree though should not be posted here

On a side note, for eurobeat and early happy hardcore it's really hard sometimes to find out which artist made a song unless you followed those genres for like 2 decades. For example, many Eurobeat artists release their songs under multiple nicknames, depending of which label they submit them to, and in the happy hardcore or rave scene there are a lot of bootlegs or remixes with little to no changes. For example, the Tekkno Wonderland's extended version by Zoee was re-released as Techno Wonderland by DJ Vibes and it's sometimes released under the artist name Steeve Smith, Steeve Smeeth or even Steeve Smeetit. Most bootleg versions are speed up and have lower sound quality. I can't imagine what would have happened if this became common practice in USA. Probably hundreds of lawsuits every month, since in USA you can get sued just for using rounded corners in your website or OS design.

Also I like that 2nd mix you posted. The only thing I don't like at raves like this is that the DJ screams non-stop during almost the entire song sometimes, so if the song is a masterpiece you can't enjoy it to its full potential. D: On a side note I don't know if you are old enough to go to rave parties but I wonder if mosh pits happen there? They are very common in Bassnectar, Skrillex or other dubstep concerts here, or at least they are in Quebec.

It's some form of dancing at concerts during faster punk rock and heavy metal songs that occurs near the front of the stage in the crowd. It looks like people fighting but with zero intention to hurt anyone (unless you want to be kicked out of the venue). It's particularly violent and you get pushed around a lot but entertaining if you're being careful and follow mosh pit etiquette

I like it. I wasn't sure at first but as it progressed I liked it more. On a side note do you remember the Crush on Hardcore compilations? I don't remember what was the status of the later albums, but I remember that CoH used to be a free DJ mix made available on HardcoreProducers forum way back in 2007 or so and most submitted tracks were from forum users. Later on they started adding commercial artist track remixes, though. However CD2 was removed per the request of one of the artist who chose to make money from his track afterwards, so the download link was hard to find. Anyway I think there are about 4 compilations total and you can find some on Youtube.

Also HardcoreProducer used to be kinda large (small by hardcore forum standards at the time, but still large but close-knit community) but I think they had lots of data losses or other incidents happening and then they died down.

Video game-themed UK hardcore mix



The Tetris, Zelda, Dr Wily theme and Mortal Kombat Immortal theme remixes are particularly cool

kotu

Enjoyed that.

I know this is strictly speaking off topic but as the two genres get lumped together a lot (at least in UK raves) I thought it would be ok to have a bit of Hardcore Techno........
