Hardcore Club: Philly Club Music’s Twisted Lil Brother
It’s been a good day for hardcore club with new stuff from K-Breeze (GIPB) and SirPHresh (PKE) and a collab between GoHard & N-Tech all released in the last 24 hours. Look below the jump for more tracks!
I’m unclear about who coined the name Hardcore Club (see also hypestyle, hypeclub, other less cool names), but it seems fitting that the first person I heard use it was DJ Get Em, whose name must be mentioned in any discussion of the harder styles of Philly Club Music.
DJ Get Em & DJ 2Live – The Mischief Knights (from Get Em’s flurry of tracks last month)
The genre takes bits and pieces of everything heavy: most noticeably hardstyle and hardcore, but also dubstep/complextro, drum & bass, breakbeat, hands-up, and more. The vocal chopping is usually of familiar samples (What’s, Hey’s, Ahh’s) as well as “Pump up the bass!” and other hardstyle-y shit. Signs you’re listening to hardcore club? The track title can in some way be interpreted as apocalyptic or about space and the graphics look like this. Actually, I think I’ve seen that image on a track before.
What’s your favorite Hardcore Club song? Are you “Hardcore Club”? Why or why not?
