HARDSTYLE – TNE ELCTRONIC SUBCULTURE WITH HARD BEAT
Hardstyle is an electronic dance music genre mixing influences from hard trance, hardcore and rave music.
The hardstyle sound typically consists of a "heavy" sounding kick, intense reverse basslines, and "adrenaline-rushing" melodies. It bears some similarities to hard trance.
Many hardcore artists produce hardstyle tracks as well. Hardstyle is mainly produced in the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Malaysia and Australia.
Hardstyle originated from the Netherlands, where the first hardstyle events started near the end of 1999 and the beginning of 2000.
