    Yup, hardhouse is awful, but then so is gabba.
    Deep house, tech-house, Detroit techno, breaks, electro, jungle...thats the stuff!

    Jungle....very funny its had its day!!!
    I'm into the more underground hard house stuff and ive got to say the tunes in the clubs in london at the moment are outstanding.

    Hoovers and horns is quite a commercial track, are u referring to the mix off hardhouse anthems 3 or something? All commericial hardhouse is pretty bad so dont judge the genre on the crap in the shops.

    Actually id just like to say... I hate all commerical music! thanku! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Most of the hardhouse stuff I hear these days probably is the commercial stuff, but I did listen to a supposedly 'underground' mix that someone from gurn.net posted a few months ago, and it was pretty bad (well, the mixing was good, but the tunes were terrible), no funk, no soul, no imagination, just bosh bosh bosh, one note off-beat basslines etc.
    I used to love hardhouse and Nu-NRG stuff back in 95-97, but it got boring pretty quick.

    Either way, its still house, and therefore pretty similar.

    Good point. And also very true.

    Hey, why is this thread in the drugs forum anyway?

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yeah, it all came from house, which came from disco, but I would argue that the current incarnation of hardhouse is so far removed now from 'house', that it is no longer a subset of the genre. Musically and culturally it is completely different.

    In fact its got a lot more in common with happy hardcore and trance than with house.

    Come on guys and gals Psychedelic Trance is the best, and Liquid Connective parties are the place to be!

    For a critique of Goa/psychedelic trance, see here http://www.spagfunk.co.uk/music/goa.htm
    Goa trance - prog rock - its the same thing isn't it?... an additional 20 years of hippy distillation bother, but basically the same old formula; lumpen rhythms and arse magic... in a word, thdogsdinnr. Yet loads of folks have seemingly been lappin' it up for quite some time now. Or have they? Call me an old and grumpy person, but I'm a bit suspicious of stuff that exists in symbiotic relationship to gonzo drug culture - stuff where, it seems, you've got to get out of it to get into it; total disconnection. But one quick look at the cosmic arm judo & goldfish face buffoonery on the goa type dancefloor certainly suggests some form of drastic mind-body existential interface connection drama; Oi mate! That's not dancing! Obviously, lumpen rhythms & sort of annoying flapping bits go hand in glove with lumpen torsos & sort of annoying flapping bits, but where's it all going to end? During which stage of evolution was it that the hips - the major pivotal joints in the human body last time I looked - became redundant? Geoff Hurst didn't score a hat-trick in the '66 world cup final by flapping his arms in the air and gurning at Jerry. No no no; he wiggled & jiggled, got deep & funky down the middle, found some space & time, and whack! And did he go into some sort of trance ("hypnotic state resembling sleep" according to my dictionary)? Course not. That's why its so ridiculous to hear these goa-type folks claim him as one of the forerunners of their scene. Come off it goa-type folks! Did he have a picture of Ganesh on his back? Or some fractal shit? No way - he had the number 7 or 9 or 10 or something.
