** Literally "machine" in [[XtremeKoolLetterz intentionally mispelled]] Spanish. A Spaniard genre of hardcore techno that sounds kinda like eurobeat mixed with hardcore. Example: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHtgzZzELU8 kors k - SigSig]]

Replaced a dead link in the Speedcore section..
** Hardcore on steroids. 300 bpm is at the lower end, some songs top 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=IA60u0sYZrY Moby - 1000]].

** The {{Lighter and Softer}} form. Still fast, but the bass drum is less pounding, the music is notably more "happy" sounding (uses major keys a lot), occasional use of piano, and vocals frequently sound like they have been inhaling helium, with lyrics about subjects such as love, partying or the love of partying. Example: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgR4S1dSkVQ Blümchen - Boomerang]].

** 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. When it has lyrics, they are usually nonsensical in old school gabber, whereas in nu-style they are often about drugs, fights, violence, police scuffles, often feature samples from American rap and hip-hop, and use many swearwords. Western techno fans simply call it "hardcore" -- the "gabber" moniker is more common among fans of Japanese techno. Example: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtjD0OhLrSw Bertocucci Feranzano - XTC Love]] (old school), [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T84PtCh9Y18 DJ Paul Elstak - One day we kill em all]] (nu-style)

** Japanese hardcore techno, of any of the aforementioned genres, but usually with a greater emphasis on melody. Still a very much niche scene dominated by doujin circles who sell their stuff at Comiket, 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.

** Basically, hardcore techno arranges of ''[[{{Videogame/Touhou}} Touhou Project]]'' songs. It has grown into a genre of itself due to the j-core scene being very largely underground, and due to Touhou's creator being OK with underground artists doing derivative works of his series. Their main distinguishing feature is a decidedly melodic sound, much more than other variants of hardcore techno, and being often performed an upbeat major key. Examples: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlyQjVdFCxc a gabber arrange of Sakuya's song]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFOZojxEZio a speedcore arrange of Yuuka's song]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekkdrcqIubA a hardstyle arrange of Kaguya's song]]..
