General Information Edit

Hardcore mixes influences from Eurodance, Hard House, & Hard Trance. Hardcore incorporates strong synths, percussion and echo effects from Eurodance, and generally uses more euphoric melodies, as well as less harsh-sounding kick drums. Hardcore is distinct and separate from Hardstyle or Reverse bass which typically consists of a bass-driven heavy kick drum, intense faded or reversed basslines accompanying the beat, a dissonant synth melody, and detuned and distorted sounds.

The color associated with this genre for Monstercat is green.
