A genre of electronic music that stems from old skool breakbeat hardcore. Typically has a stomping 4x4 kick drum, crazy synth lines, a breakbeat (sometimes), and pitched up vocals.
Happy hardcore is known as a fairly un-pretentious, D.I.Y. genre, with a dedicated group of listeners and DJ's.
It gets the party started right.
"Hey man, what do you say we grab some Pabst Blue Ribbon and hit up the illegal warehouse rave...i hear there is gonna be some bangin' happy hardcore!"
