Hardtechno (Schranz) refers to subgenre of Techno, which evolved from Schranz Music and Hardcore Techno.
While the first harder Techno productions appeared around 90s on labels such as PCP and Industrial Strength, these were referred to as Hardcore Techno.
Over the years, the Hardcore scene cultivated a new sound far away from its Techno origins, whereas Techno itself went in a softer direction.
At the end of the 90s, fueled by the Schranz (Tribal Techno) movement, a new, extremely hard style of Techno became popular, which is now generally referred to as Hardtechno.
This style runs at very high bpm, usually 150 or more and features heavy distortion and prominent kickdrums. Almost all major European Techno festivals, such as I Love Techno,
Awakenings, MayDay, Nature One, Mysteryland featured a Hardtechno stage or at least one Hardtechno artist.
