  • Hardcore Techno

    Hardcore techno music is a genre of electronic music that emerged in the early and mid years of the 90s in locales like Newcastle Australia, Rotterdam Netherlands and Frankfurt Germany especially. Music considered to be Hardcore techno is usually identified by its fast tempo and the distorted yet rhythmical industrial type beats. The genre is also widely simply known as “Hardcore”. Being composed mostly through the use of music sequencers, many of the earlier songs were created and produced by artists on their home computer systems, using software known as “module tracker”, which allows the artist to lay tracks with many levels of musical instrumentation and beats in a spreadsheet type of format. Due to the lack of actual monetary reward, in addition to the vast availability of personal home computer systems, many hardcore artists produce the music for their own amusement and for the simple pleasure it brings them through their own innovative forms of creativity.
