You all know happy hardcore right? A genre filled with chipmunk vocals, nursery rhyme synth riffs and adoring fans who all once owned a Vauxhall Nova SRi.

The music moved on, borrowing elements from techno and gabber including a faster BPM and somewhat sentimental vocals that are still seen today in the guise of UK hardcore. The market quickly became flooded with copycat tunes making it a real struggle to find good quality releases in the abundance of nonsense. Many adored the cheesier element and certain producers even went as far as to release comedy tunes to poke fun at the how cringeworthy the genre had become.

If hundreds of metal bands can be formed I don't see why a happy hardcore one could exist. Maby we just like perfection in the end. Not saying it can't be done, but the closest you can get to a live performance is with a novation twitch. The limitation of dance music is the use of effects that have to be applied post-production, or at least in real time like side-chaining synths to the kick.
