For me, Hard is a track with a gloomy atmosphere, industrial sounds & distorsion. Reverse bass and raw screeches.

hardness is all about deep sounds and basslines + eventually creepy atmospheres. It goes for any EDM genre.

but when nowadays hardstyle is trying to be hard, its all about randomness and plastic kicks/wall of bass to me.

"Hard" ? More than music, it's a way of life :)

There's definitely something special about hardstyle from 2006-2010....

Distorted Dongs, Fat Reverse Basses. Rhythm and note durations of screeches/patterns in mid-intros etc also play an important on how 'hard' a track can be.

icey:Ok then. To some of you this is Hard right??

But surely everyone can agree that this is Harder??

Thats probably the most obvious example I can put there. If you disagree then fair enough. But imo, 'Doggystyle' is a much Harder strack than 'rawstyle'. :lol:

Gated kicks (Doggystyle) will always be harder imo but listening to hardstyle these days it ain't always about hardness of tracks for me :)

Good answer kyle. It isn't always about Hardness. I just prefer harder tracks. There are some rubbish harder tracks too ;)

ofcourse not all good tracks need to be hard and hard tracks can also be rubbish, i listen to lots of non-hard edm aswell... nevertheless tracks which are called HARDstyle need to have atleast a certain amount of hardness, this non-hard, "euphoric" ( rather cheesey ) Hardstyle like Coone / Wasted Penguinz, is absolutely not doing it for me.

Define 'hard'

The state my dick gets in when I hear a crunchy reversed bass or an epic screech.
