** Hardcore that changes beat every 2-4 seconds, giving the sense of a jumbled yet coherent chaos. Usually takes rhythms from other genres, especially drum and bass. Example: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWASUqM38-Y BOB the Builder - Words]]

Hardcore Techno, also referred to as "Hard Dance", is an umbrella term used to describe the {{Darker and Edgier}} variants of {{Techno}}, although some people argue that it has evolved into a separate, less specific genre of its own. It is mostly distinguishable from its parent genre by a faster tempo, very powerful bass, and a preference for abrasive 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.

** Evolved from Happy Hardcore. A bit less childish, uses supersaw synths more, makes many remixes of pop songs. {{Nightcore}} is a derivative of this and happy hardcore.

** [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Japanese hardcore techno]], usually with a greater emphasis on melody. Still a very much niche scene dominated by doujin circles who sell their stuff at Comiket, or indies composers who make music for rhythm games. Often features sound samples from anime. Also has influenced some foreign artists whose works can be perfectly classified as j-core despite not being Japanese, like Argentinian producer Shingo DJ. Examples: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OI3C9qQlb1U xi - Freedom Dive]] (happy hardcore) [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgrChl3ur4U moro - ppppyyy]] (UK hardcore), [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_Ta7zVzHLo RedOgre - Zelkova]] (speedcore), [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBTvrcklI4o moro - A one of mathafucker]] (gabber), [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XDI0v30h54 moro - akatsuki]] (hardstyle), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8HRTlkGD4Q siromaru + cranky - conflict]] (schranz), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zhG05LlROg LeaF - Calamity Fortune]] (happy hardcore/makina)

** [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Japanese hardcore techno]], usually with a greater emphasis on melody. Its birth is credited to DJ Sharpnel in his album [[https://www.discogs.com/es/%E9%AB%98%E9%80%9F%E9%9F%B3%E6%A5%BD%E9%9A%8A%E3%82%B7%E3%83%A3%E3%83%BC%E3%83%97%E3%83%8D%E3%83%AB-Sharpnel-Vs-Project-Gabbangelion/release/736460 Sharpnel vs. Project Gabbangelion]], often thought to be the first one to mix anime samples together with mid-90's Rotterdam hardcore techno (although it wasn't his first release, some albums such as [[https://www.discogs.com/Project-Gabbangelion-Early-Style-Of-Otakuspeedvibe-19961998/release/477886 Early Style Of Otakuspeedvibe 1996→1998]] predate it).

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.

** 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". Example: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtjD0OhLrSw Bertocucci Feranzano - XTC Love]].

** Like gabber, but slower, happier and more upbeat, with a cleaner and more "booming" sound. Usually begins with a rhythmic part, then a melodic part, then ends with another rhythmic part. Really loves the "hoover" sound; the lyrics are usually about drugs, sex and partying. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Td4C9p1fJ9M Showtek - Freak!]]

Really loves the "hoover" sound; the lyrics are usually about drugs, sex party culture, sex, energy, dancing, or [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs energetic dancing]]. Has many variants as well, such as euphoric (generally LighterAndSofter than regular hardstyle), rawstyle (uses more abrasive sounds), jumpstyle (slower and partying.with a "bouncy" sound) and dubstyle (fuses elements of dubstep).

** 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)
