I just realised there's been a few Hard Dance remixes of various HHC tunes apparently by Q-Tex. I thought they were the HHC group with the famous tune, "Power of Love"?? are they producing both Hard Dance music and Happycore? or was that just back in the days but nowadays they are all just Hard Dance/House?

Haven't done anything for years have they? Originally they were what you'd probably class as Eurodance as well as Bouncy techno/Hardcore. Anything since that early period has been remixes so it's a long time since an actual release from them.

The original "Power Of Love" was slower paced rolling bass stuff - so I guess that'd sit in the Hard Dance category.

Think they still do live pa's now and again, as they were meant to play at planet love a few years ago but unfortunatley it never happened pity as i was looking forward to it, but if they were booked to play in the first place,they must still play live

Yeah, that's a funny fact I found out last year. Before 2009 I barely knew anything about the UK Hardcore scenery, but Q-Tex was something that brought me very close to it in 1997, but failed to cause the final step and I drifted off to cheap Trance.

This was a good CD back in the day and as DMS has pointed out, it was full of Eurodance.

No not Hard Dance. That is a relatively recent invention. What DMS said.

Their early stuff was real oldskool rave for want of a better description. Power of love was a huge crossover track about as mainstream as it got in those days popular with all types of folks. Theres a hell of alot of hardcore/bouncy techno stuff under the q-tex name, all the equazions for a start (part 6 deffo worth a mention!) and he's kept the name in use over the years with UKHC releases.

The tune in the first posts yet another scouse rip of a 'rave' track, wish they wouldnt mess with these classics!!

Their first stuff sounded like 'Eurodance' but they did have some harder stuff which went into the Bouncy Techno tag. I have a few of their vinyls from 93-95 and mostly varied stuff. Later they could be in the Happy Hardcore tag and some later stuff sounded rather trancy so they got thrown into the 'Hard Trance' tag as well. I think their last tune was 'The Reason' which was on Scott Brown's mix of Bonkers 13

I don't really class their early stuff as eurodance, I've got alot of euro stuff. May be of similar bpm and played in the same style sets but has a definate distinctive english sound to it. Pretty much ALL the equzaions in the 90's are tip top aswell

make of it what you will, this is the "radio edit" from the cd single, though I don't recall anyone saying that any one group have to always make the same genre of music.
