Been listening to Happy Hardcore for almost two years now, and I don't have much seperate tracks in this genre, just some mixes. Two Hardcore Nation triple CD's from WD UK and some Bonkers mixes, but after recently getting Bonkers XV: Legends of The Core from my brother, I once again realize how great this music actually is. Just the name probably scares away pretty much everybody, and that's a real shame. This music is just so unpretentious, as it's just about good fun; be it a really silly BadgerBadgerBadger sample, vocals from an old rap song, reusing te melody from old classics in a fun new way, a little experiment with breakbeat ir acid, or just a wicked melody that stays in your head. I also really love the way some of these songs combine hard crazy beats and melodies with sweet female vocals; the contrast makes for amazing songs most of the time (if it doesn't get too cheesy).
Too bad it seems to be popular in the UK only, I'd dance my ass off anytime to this music.
here's some of the tracks i really like:
