History/Description: As the breakbeat hardcore world in Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium began to splinter off, hard trance was born. Most popular in the mid- to late-‘90s, hard trance was the soundtrack to European raves where thousands of people flocked. The UK got its introduction to hard trance courtesy of the underground gay techno scene. The sound is denoted by strong kicks, full bass, and reverberating beats clocking in around 140-180 BPM. Hard trance is a precursor to hardstyle, and those influences can be heard today.
