Not to be confused with hardcore punk.
Hardcore, or hardcore techno, is a sub-genre of electronic dance music originally European from the emergent raves in the 1990s initially designed at Rotterdam in Netherlands derived from techno. Its sub-genres are usually distinct from the other electronic dance musics by a higher rapidity (160 to 200 BPM or more), the intensity of the kicks and the basses (in some sub-genres), the rhythm and the atmosphere of their theme (sometimes violent), the usage of saturation and experimentation close to the industrial music.
