The most pointless on-topic thread ever (Hardcore Ringtones)

Post by melakaraya » Wed May 23, 2012 7:30 pm

Alright, I'm at a loose end tonight, and this thread should really be reserved for twelve year old girls talking about which Justin Beiber song they have as their ringtone at the moment, but...

Who's got a hardcore (or section of) tune as their ringtone? And if so, which tune?

I've got from 54s to 1m 15s of this:



Love seeing the squares' faces when my phone rings in public - especially when the breaks kick in. Gives me a warm fuzzy glow knowing that I know and love hardcore, and those poor unfortunates don't.

I haven't got any music on my phone at all. I just keep it on silent 24-7.

I'm not really cut out for this thread lol

Got mine on silent as well.
Bit tricky to have it start playing hardcore at work when you're trying to sell someone a chandelier for a couple of grand - might put them off lol

haha, great thread.
I've had -
* terminator pitch shifted break beat (few bars after "you're talking about things I haven't done yet" sample)
* hoover from english muffin "blod of an english muffin" / nasty habits "here come the drums"

once I left my desk and kept getting calls from someone with the english muffin one on cranked up high at work.... came back to a bunch of really confused looks hahahaha

Second that, ring tones do my head in so have it on vibrate all the time!

had start of 'The Fire' by Noise Factory for a while - again as others got some strange looks and it pissed people off in the office, so changed it for something mellower - currently it's 'Perfect Motion' by Sunscreem

From 1:21 of this track.
Completely agree it can ruin a tune you like though. I used to have the big synth breakdown from Voodoo People for text messages but it really began to annoy me.

I have Foul Play's 'Finest Illusion (Legal Mix)' set as my girfriend's ringtone. Dunno why, as she hates my taste in music, and also have DJ Hype's 'Badman' as my regular tone. Something about the reggae horns at the start that get's me. I did get funny looks when I had 'Atheama' as my ringtone, but I didn't care!!! :D

Well I haven't done custom ringtones for years. Not hardcore, but I used to have Whistle - Only Buggin for numbers not in my address book. I'd worry I'd get tired of listening to a favourite tune.
