When you ask me about the old hardcore, my story is a bit kind of special, I think because when I heard the first hardcore traxx in my life I was just around 8 years old. So, how can an eight-year-old boy get to HappyHardcore traxx?? He grabs the sampler-cds from his parents - and that's what I did - I sat there at the cdplayer with the headphone and was hearing this happyhardcore stuff, e.g. "International Hits '95" for hours and hours. Then, a few years later we moved into another town where I still live today, and however I did not hear any happyhardcore stuff anymore - that's the story of my way to old hardcore.

Concerning the new hardcore I came originally to it by, a big German TechnoCommunity where D.I. Radio supports for nearly each style of the electro music an own radio channel. So I began to hear the HappyHardcore channel, btw. this was how I came to, too. All these things happened this year.

i used 2 listen to metal and punk (Anti-Flag, Coal Chamber Ect.)

then i started hanging out with a guy (now my best friend) who had 2 10 ich crappy ass subs, and every lunch we'd goto the mcdonalds and he'd crank up some Dj Mystik, and i would be soo embarassed i'd slide my seat back and shit. corny ass lyrics about moonlight shadows and shit. so i went out to search out some good songs (dont get me wrong now, i like dj mystik, its just not the kinda shit u blast at max vol when ur rolling around the school parking lot),

and then i found Scott Bornw...

I never really hung out with the popular crowd, although, my school was small (like 250 kids) so everybody knows you. I started skating in 95' and I went to my first rave in 96' called Dimension in Madison, WI, started meeting mostly ravers/cocaine addicts in 97' when I graduated High School. They listened to just about everything. Then I got in trouble with the law and ended up just listening to Underground Hip-hop and what ever electronica I could get from Sam Goody. I was embarrassed to even skate in Chicago because I had no friends... I met H2bH in 2002 and that got me where I am today which is trying to spin hardcore in clubs and stuff. I'm not that heavy in Chicago but I always show the DJs love! It seems like once you've been to a rave it sticks with you. I don't know, I just hated pop! I would listen to the jungle and techno shows on WNUR and donate to non-commercial radio like that. But for me, Hardcore is my favorite, because it's fun... I have no deep reason, just I like the feeling... I wish I would have been raving back in the day but the cops bothered me! I almost kill myself trying to be real to Hardcore! Nobody really spins it except for in SF or NY... I plan to take a trip to the UK eventually and really find out what it means to me.... Yeah, I gotta get out more often but no endz...

I got into the rave scene after my first illegal warehouse party in Essex in '89. (Anyone remember the days of driving to some services to get new directions....)
Been in love with the music ever since.
Started listening to Happy Hardcore around '93/'94. Was loving DJ Hixxy's sets at first but I like my tunes to be that little bit harder, that's when I got into the Hard Dance scene mainly following The Tidy Boys (they're productions are awesome). Still went raving as much as possible but found most of the music had started using cheesy chipmunk vocals and I was going off it big time. Over the past five years I started to drop other types of music and started to listen exclusively to hardcore mainly because its the only music that uplifts me. So you could say I've been around since the beginning.

well i actually hate your normal pop music and i grew up with a bunch of people that loved that shit and i knew there was something different out there or that i was different to them, and when i found the music and played hardcore everyday they all thought i was strange but i can't help but love hardcore. everyone wonders why i am not a DJ yet because i play it and i live it and i love it.

My brother was a house dj around minnesota. I literally followed his foot steps and became a dj around minnesota(now the midwest). I told him I wanted to spin either speed garage or drum n bass and he advised against both at the time. He showed me a couple cds, Vinylgroover Anthems vol.1, and United Dance vol.2. Kindof went from there...Now I spin happy hardcore/breakbeat hardcore, drum n bass/jungle, and speed garage/house/acid house.

hate to say it but about a year ago i was saying heck no to techno, and listening mainly to ska and punk. but my buddy introduced me to some classical remixes and eventually to happy 2b hardcore 4 and i was hooked on the stuff ever since.

Look if everyone else is jumping off a cliff then there must be a damn good reason, so of course I'm going to jump too.
