About Hard Dance

Hard Dance is an electronic dance genre mixing influences from hardtechno and hardcore. Hard Dance typically consists of a deep, hard-sounding kick drum, intense faded or reversed basslines accompanying the beat, a dissonant synth melody, and detuned and distorted sounds. Many hardcore artists produce hard dance tracks as well, and many newer Hard Dance tracks are written in compound time.

Hard Dance was influenced by gabber. Hard Dance has its origins in the Netherlands where artists like Dana, Pavo, Luna and The Prophet, who produced hardcore, started experimenting while playing their hardcore records. The first few years of hard dance were characterized by a tempo of around 140-150 BPM, a compressed kick drum sound, a short vocal sample, a screech and the use of a "reverse bass", which can be heard on the offbeat after each kick.

Around 2004-05 the genre became more melodic and uplifting, somewhat faster (usually 150 BPM), and distorted, sharp kick drum sounds were added. Many producers started to pitch-shift a distorted kick drum to create a melodic bassline that usually plays in pitch with a typical hard trance supersaw or a thinner electro house synth melody. The melody often is in tuplet form, which gives the genre a pulsating rhythm, whereas older Hard Dance as well as other genres such as jumpstyle have more basic melodic structures to them. Thus, nowadays many people refer to the older style as early hard dance.
