** After the rise, dominance and fall of early gabber in the late 90s to hardstyle and trance techno, the gabber scene returned to the underground, where it basically tried to distance itself as hard as possible from the old days of happy hardcore and gained a more distorted, pounding bass drum driven rhythm, more elaborate productions, often samples from American rap and hip-hop, and actually comprehensible lyrics usually about drugs, fights, violence, police scuffles, and many swearwords. The most recent productions as of 2016 start to show influence from the more melodic Japanese style, which gained a die-hard following on the internet since around 2010. Western techno fans simply call it "hardcore" -- the "gabber" moniker is nowadays more common among fans of Japanese techno. Example: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T84PtCh9Y18 DJ Paul Elstak - One day we kill em all]] (nu-style) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3g4r8-UL7IQ NeLIME - Codename: Zero]] (nu-style but with old-style IndecipherableLyrics)

* Gabber (Oldskool and Nuskool)
** With fast tempos (150-200 BPM), distorted, pounding bass drum driven rhythm and use of the Roland Alpha Juno sound. During the nineties it used to be simple and straightforward, with the sole goal of making you go crazy; nowadays it is much more elaborate.

* Old school gabber
** This genre is credited as the one that gave birth to the hardcore techno genre. It is believed to have originated in Detroit (the birthplace of techno music in general) from acid house and techno house, but it rooted itself in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where it became popular on account of being perceived as an affront to the Amsterdam scene which was perceived to be snobby and pretentious. As a result, its sound used to be a pretty simple and straightforward, with the sole goal of making you go crazy without even having to take any drugs. The "gabber" moniker is believed to have originated from an interview with Amsterdam DJ K.C. the Funkaholic, where he was asked how did he felt about the Rotterdam scene; his answer was "Oh, they're just a bunch of gabbers having fun" ("gabber" being an Amsterdam slang word that can be more or less translated as "dude" or "mate"). Eventually, its harder sound and its simplicity ended up dominating the early Dutch techno scene, and by 1995 it started mutating into its mainstream, commercialized variant known as "happy hardcore".

Hardcore Techno is essentially the {{Darker and Edgier}} version of {{Techno}}, although some people argue that it has evolved into a separate genre of its own. It's distinguishable from its parent genre by a faster tempo, very powerful bass, and a preference for atonal samples and beats. The genre was inspired by the sinister and slow {{New Beat}} that was made in UsefulNotes/{{Belgium}} by [[Music/LordsOfAcid Praga Khan]] and others. The genre originated from Western European countries like the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Italy and the UK, as well as occupying a very strong scene from Japan. Hardcore techno had its heyday in the mid to late nineties when the more commercial {{lighter and softer}} Happy Hardcore sound spread to popularity.

** Hardcore on steroids. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTime Speed is the main emphasis for this subgenre]], with a tempo going 300 BPM at the lower end, and even as high as 1000 BPM. The bass drum can become so fast that it becomes a tone, and unless it's Japanese there are typically very few melodic or even musical elements. Example: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNQDCcqQu2Q Moby - 1000]].
