Hard-Trance is a music sytle of electronic music that born in Germany in the early 90's and is one of the earliest forms of trance music. Hardtrance was one of the most common forms of Trance throughout the decade, Hard trance characterized by strong kicks, with a very heavy strong sound. Hard-Trance it is much more rare compared to other forms of Trance and Techno music, but still has a big fanbase in neatherlands, UK, and other parts of Europe.
Hard Trance Music
The Hard Trance sound varies from trance with its emphasis on harder, often acid techno sounds. The Hard trance beat is very strong and short, but still retain their melodic, "trance-like" nature. The "hoover" sound, so named, due to its "vacuum-like" drone, made famous by Human Resource in the early techno classic "Dominator," is used infrequently as of late, giving way to harsher lead melodies through synths or pads. Recently, a difference in production styles between the two stables of hard trance has developed, splitting the genre into what is commonly known as European hard-trance, which can contain darker elements, and shares common production techniques with hardstyle such as the familiar off beat bassline and snappy snarerolls, which sets its roots in trance's heyday, with wide, epic synths and rolling, often "bubbling" basslines.
