A genre of electronic music that became popular
during England's rave
movement. Characterized by a processed 4x4 kick, breakbeats, baselines, and high strung synths and vocals, happy hardcore is the staple of any candy kid's listening
experience. Drum & Bass also
originated from happy hardcore and now are (ironically) anathema to one another. Where happy hardcore is known for it's happy, almost cheesy, lyrics and sounds, Drum & Bass is a much
more aggressive, hard-edged sound that is a much harder
pill to swallow, so to speak.
