Your favourite year in the history of Hardstyle


Postby Double-T » 06 Dec 2010, 13:07

The question is simple : Which year, in your opinion, was (or is) the best in the Hardstyle history ?
I mean by that, release-wise, events-wise etc..

This is a serious topic and is absolutely not meant to be another freaking topic where you can fight between EHStylers and NuStylers, so please just give your answer and don't make fun of others :)

Mine is 2008 because it's the first year I really was into this style and I still appreciate amazing tunes released in 2008 such as Zatox - So High, D-Block & S-te-Fan - Kingdom, 2 Best Enemies - Phases, SMD - Just Like You, Project One - The Story Unfolds, The Beholder meets Zany - Bleeding For The Harder Styles, Dozer - The Church Of The Darkside etc...

2008, because I didn't really listen to HS before and most of my favorite tracks are from that year. 2005 also saw many good releases, but I wasn't involved with the music at that time so I rather pick 2008.
Also, the direction Hardstyle seemed to go in 2008 was great, too bad that changed in 2009.

Even though it's really hard to pick one, I would have to go with 2006.
This year had some great releases like:

Zatox - Scanner E.P
Tatanka Project - Floor Massacre/Tripods Attack
Technoboy - Into Deep (Into Dub preferably :P)
Zatox - Bad Time

Among many others of course...

It was also the year with the most wicked Qlimax Anthem after Deepack - The Prophecy
Alpha² - The Darkside (Qlimax Anthem 2006)

I explain myself :
since 2008, more and more track are "nustyle", "cheesy", and "common". The mainstream become more commercial. But since a few month, some maintream producers begin to experiment ( i think about wildstylez, nc, frontliner ... ) and more and more of the new talent just signed @label make some harder stuff ( i think about jack of sound & co ). And there also more producers then before, more label, more party. Poeple who like mainstream can still enjoy their comon stuff, and people who like it harder/darker/more experimental have more posibilities to enjoy their style ( podcast, party like loudness, some stage@ big event, and i have a lot of expectation for digital age ).

2011 will be better then 2010 for sure, with a lot of different direction, different substyle

My english is not so good and my explication are maybe weird but i'm sure you understand what i mean =)

edit : but if i had to say a real years in history i'll say 2007, it's the years of my first events, and i think the years of changement and evolving. So much good track.
