Hardstyle and Hardcore has been blowing up in the last year more than ever. In 2016, Insomniac Events noticed the high demand for more Basscon events and promised to give the fans more in 2017. We are only three months into the new year and they’ve already announced at least one Basscon event each month. Upcoming events are Darren Styles B2B Gammer on March 18 at The Belasco Theater in Los Angeles and Wasteland returns for two days this year on April 28 and 29 at the NOS Event Center in San Bernardino.
Hardstyle is defined by a rhythm between 140 and 150 bpm which includes raw energy in its bass and its hard hitting drum kick sound. This genre was originally produced in the Netherlands and its sound has continued to evolve over the years. It started to get a lot of attention once Q-Dance events evolved. Q-Dance puts together festivals and events of the harder styles in dance music and work withID&T.
DJs started to remix popular EDM songs which helped create more exposure of this style of dance music. Some of these remixes included Headhunterz’ remix of Kaskade’s “Lessons in Love” and DJ Isaac’s remix of popular trance song “Till The Sky Falls Down”.
The up-tempo and hard-hitting bass drops have captivated a growing audience for years. You can now catch hardstyle and hardcore DJs getting a shot at playing on main stages at some of the biggest festivals in America. Major satellite radio stations have been featuring the hard sounds on their shows as well.
The 150-200 bpm beats might be too much for some people, but if you haven’t listened to it yet or attended any hard dance shows, give it chance! I have introduced friends to this genre and they ended up loving it. The incredible production of hardstyle and hardcore events will blow your mind.
The beats will get your blood pumping and the vibes will guarantee you to have an experience you’ll never forget.
