Hardstyle, an electronic dance music genre, took its initial roots in the late 1990s in countries including the Netherlands, Belgium, and Italy. This genre seamlessly merges elements from techno, new beat, and hardcore music. Early Hardstyle typically embodied a beat of 140 BPM (beats per minute), progressively evolving to a faster tempo around 150 BPM in its current form. Distinguishing features of Hardstyle include hard, overdriven kick drums frequently combined with a unique offbeat bass known as a "reverse bass". As it gained traction, there were advancements in production techniques and songwriting to appeal to a larger audience mix. Contemporary Hardstyle is easily recognizable by its blend of distorted sounds and synthesizer melodies, combined with characteristic Hardstyle percussive and bass elements. The genre's harmonious implementation of kick drums has garnered particular applause.
