The madman finally released it.
Really wish he found out about the ridiculous subgenres in Hardstyle, I was looking forward to his take on Rawstyle :rofl:

The Hard Trance section made me cringe viscerally, however. So many inaccuracies :sick: still hilarious.

Wow, I saw his tweet about a 15-hour mix yesterday but still somehow didn't even think he's going to release the new guide now. This day starts fucking awesome already :fist:

ah i remember the old old flash website that was around since early 00s. Was biased and factually inaccurate as shit and more reflecting the guy's personal taste than providing correct information, but still helped me and the entire early 00s internet generation learn a lot about electronic music. Feels quite nostalgic. I'd loooooove to explore this but holy crap thats one bad website, i dont know if im doing something wrong but its lagging and buggy as hell :(

Use a modern browser (not IE) on a desktop or laptop, the site works like hell on mobile browsers. That being said it is a bit buggy on a desktop browser too, but not severely so.

Using a mouse? The scroll wheel acts as a zoom and clicking & dragging on a touchpad is torture! I recommend an epic gamer mouse from the Razor Company.

Using a laptop with Chrome and a very cheap mouse here. The only problem I experience is clicking on one of the small panels doesn't load the songs for a particular year sometimes :/

The panels that look much darker than the rest don't have any music to click for, presumably because he didn't feel like scouring for tracks from a year that don't sound much different from the year before/after.

Also in the search, type "Deadmau5" then search for his real name :rofl: :rofl:

No, I actually meant the lighter panels when there's no response (not even a spinner at the bottom of the page to indicate something is loading) clicking on them for a looong time :P Rrefreshing the page solves the problem but not all the time...

Ah, might just be server lag? I imagine a decent amount of traffic incoming due to the following he has, hopefully it dies down soon.

Some songs for the different (sub)genres are so inaccurate, but it's still a pretty damn nice effort he put into this. Sometimes it's a little tricky to click on a particular year, like it starts a song from a genre above the one I clicked on, but whatever, it's not like I'll use this site every day. :+

Might be the case but seems to work flawlessly now.

Not sure about the 00s generation thing though but the rest is totally correct. And unfortunately being biased and scornful to some of the genres is still a thing when I check those short descriptions... I started with the experimental branch but I haven't seen any positive words so far (words like "IDMiots", just what the fuck?)

Just read the page on Hardstyle though :

It is time now for us to have a conversation about the Dutch. Their food is shit, their economics is shit, their sex acts are shit, even their soccer players are shit (except for this guy, he cool).

Now, I can forgive The Netherlands for Moombahton, or Gabber, and maybe even Eurotrance or Vocal Trance up to an extent (I mean: Any country that can foist Venga Boys and Alice Deejay upon the world has something seriously wrong with it so we should've known they were up to something). But I draw the line at Hardstyle.

This is just bad music. This is beyond corny, even for Dutch music. And it's not the good kind of corny like Police Academy 3, but rather the sad, tragic kind of corny like Police Academy 7. This whole country must be stopped.

What can be said about Hardstyle? Well it borrowed ideas from Jumpstyle and Hard Trance and it was a quick conversion. If you flipped a coin on which genre -- Hardstyle or Hard Trance -- is worse, the coin would land on its edge.

Hardstyle took everything the Dutch typically ruin with electronic music and cranked it up past 11. The super compressed and pitched kicks making a goofy "DOING DOING DOING DOING" sound, the nauseating screaming anthems, the tiresome breakdowns, the obtrusive off-beat bass stabs so overdriven that they're just a big "WOMP WOMP WOMP WOMP" in-your-face cacophonous swill, the lack of any self-awareness or productive inventiveness.

This is annoying jump-scare music. It would be funny -- almost a parody of hard music -- if it weren't such a sad microcosm of everything wrong with the Dutch. This is fucking looney toons.

Hardstyle has a lot of similarities to a newborn baby, in that both are excrement factories. There is nothing redeemable about this flavorless, funkless, metronomic wall of screaming noise garbage.

This sound was been double baked, fired, refried, dehydrated, plastered, and reinforced with rebar into a mold that has not been altered in nearly 20 years. Thousands of tracks all cut from the same factory assembly process. And they keep making more. It's like whale vomit -- it just keeps coming.

Showing someone who's never heard Hardstyle before the best Hardstyle tracks trying to convert them is like sending someone a dick pic. Like supply side economics, there's no proof that it has ever worked yet guys keep doing it thinking the next time will be different.


Hope that wasn't aimed at being descriptive..
