Hardcore Retrospective #4 - 97-99

The last one, was actually made the last. At least there was some sort of chronology in the producing of these 4 babies. This period was pretty depressing when looking back. It was before the revival which came early this millennium. Tracks released hinged back to the good old days of 92-93, but it wasn’t my favorite period although there were of course enough releases. Now that a simple cheesy hardcore tune wouldn’t generate sky-high sales producers put more energy and soul into their tracks. This period also saw the birth of the Jumpstyle and the rise of nowadays stars like Endymion, Vince and The Viper.

In 1997 the hardcore scene exploded. The negative image of gabber in the media, Top 40 hits mocking gabbers and Happy Hardcore that was wearing out: it all led to the birth of Newschool/Newstyle. Slow oldstyle melodies and very catchy. This is a Newschool impression…
