I went to the Rhythm Station at about the same time but it was a Jungle night, attitude city. Put me right off, that and the fact that every second tune was The Arsonist.Elusive wrote:I always thought this, even though happy hardcore is still going strong today, i wished they had renamed itDouble Drop wrote:After '93 I don't think hardcore even existed, just this parody of what real rave had been, unimaginative kick drums, piano and chipmonks. That doesn't even deserve to be called hardcore, didn't then and certainly doesn't now.
If you can't think of a name for your genre of music please don't steal the name of a previous genre that you don't even deserve to lick the boots of
if anyone asks me what i'm into and i say hardcore, i get the look of "you like happy hardcore??!!"
even though i like the deeper side of hardcore that was around for only a few years between 91-94
its exactly the same as garage, i like the deep USA stuff from 93-97,
and then UK garage came along & raped the garage name and gave that a really bad rude boy reputation
So you get that look again when you say your into garage :rant: :rant:
Theres still some very good hardcore about in 93/94, if you do alot of digging past the many many dark amen tunes that came out at that time
I was forced to go to rhythm station in 1995 when 4 beat was massive, it was like hell going through that night
it just sounded like they had tunes like kariya baby let me love you for tonight on the wrong speed, with no breakbeats at all!
Parsnip! Me got me parsnip! bibidi-ibidi-ibidi-ibidi-ibidibibididee!
