Millennium Hardcore

By freewave freewave
updated about 1 year ago

There was a somewhat divisive split in the Hardcore scene starting in the late 90's. Some producers started embracing a slower style of Gabber referred to as "Nu Style" which was slower and began to become more similar to Hard House. Many hardcore enthusiasts hated hard house and the club scene it typifies, and frequently DJs would be booed by one group of fans and cheered for. After this initial split occurred and Hardcore had its toughest transition period, there became a resurgence in the 2000's which later became known as "Millennium Hardcore". The two Gabber scenes eventually united in the middle and embraced a resurgence through a variety of compilations such as Master of Hardcore, A Nightmare in Rotterdam, and the long running Thunderdome. Besides just the Netherlands there was a large Italian Hardcore community that contributed to the scene.

We did not include Hardcore subgenres in this list that were more extreme directions such as Darkcore & Industrial Hardcore or faster hardcore such as Terrorcore and Speedcore. These ultimately may be part of that era but not the same "classification".

Selections from DJ Thumpa From His Mixtapes

"I've spent the last 6 months or so trawling through my unmixed CDs, junodownload and hard tunes as I've been getting right back into my 2000-2009 stuff. Hope no one minds me posting the mixes up here! So many forgotten gems amongst the usual Angerfist / Tommyknocker / Ophidian stuff, the rabbit hole is deep on this one! Mostly 2000-2009 music here with bits of earlier 97-99 (we called it new style) and some early uptempo (when it was amazing)."~DJ Thumpa
