Hardcore Club: Philly Club Music’s Twisted Lil Brother
Makes sense that the first person I heard use “hardcore club” 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: 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. Usually the track title can in some way be interpreted as apocalyptic or about space and the graphics look like this!
