Honestly what is the difference between Hardstyle and Hardcore?
If you want a good UK Hardcore Mix, download “Find the Light and Dance Into Your Love” on http://www.matthewjbentley.com.

I would LOVE to represent Hardcore for godsdjs.com, I just haven’t been asked to (Even though I’m like the ONLY one to post in the hardcore forum hahaha)…

hardstyle: very melodical hard dance music, 140-160 bpm.
Main subgenre:
jumpstyle (bouncy stuff, pretty much the same as hardstyle)

hardcore: fast/dark hard dance music, 165-190 bpm.
Main subgenre’s:
early rave (100-190bpm, piano riffs and acid synths are often used here) industrial (distorted hardcore, very breaky, combined with calm sweeping strings, 170-200 bpm)
terror/speedore (200+ bpm, bulk of aggression, lots of kicks through eachother, barely a melody, weird lyrics)

if you compare happy hardcore to hardstyle, yes you might get confused (other then happy beeing faster then hardstyle). I guess I just better show you the diffrence.

where hardcore and hardstyle really are diffrent is the way their build I guess, hardstyle is focussed on the melody and sweeping voices where hardcore is focussed on kicks and weird noizes, stuttering vocals.
where hardcore is aggressive, hardstyle is the ‘sweet stuff’.
