In the mids the great British rave was fragmenting. In and around the capital, the dance was developing into something darker and more discerning: the breakbeats of UK hardcore were becoming jungle, soon to be UK garage and drum 'n' bass. As if wringing the colour from the bottom of the country like a flannel, the hinterlands north of London ran in the opposite direction.

One aspect of this universe that has yet to be mined is happy hardcore, a kind of loathed slapstick dance music that fuses aggressive tempos with over-the-top euphoria. One person who has been tangentially exploring this trend is San Francisco-based DJ and producer Chrissy previously Chrissy Murderbot whose recent LP Resilienceout in November on Chiwaxevokes the positivity, friendship and perseverance central to rave culture. My new album, Resilienceis heavily inspired by those old records, so it feels like a good time to speak up about a very influential but deeply maligned sub-genre from the rave era: happy hardcore.
UK hardcore is a genre of music which evolved from and incorporates sound elements from happy hardcore. UK hardcore has a characteristically "harder" style by its "thicker" harsher bassline, as well as less of the breakbeat associated with the happy hardcore music of the s. Early hardcore producers evolved in a period when techno was developing a harder edge, exploring the complex breakbeats that would later manifest themselves as jungle and the subsequent development of drum and bass. The stylistic influence of techno including the movie, cartoon and media samples, and powerful synthesizer-based breakdowns characterised this earlier form of UK hardcore.
