Another happy hardcore tape. Hate all you want—I LOVE THIS STUFF SO DANG MUCH AND I WILL NOT BE DISSUADED.

Like jungle, happy hardcore spent 1993 breaking away from the old breakbeat hardcore rave paradigm, and 1994 finding its own identity. By 1995 it had really come into its own as a distinct genre—still tied to jungle and rave, but with its own unique sound and aesthetic. It lasted for a couple of years before devolving into an even-cheesier breakbeat-free kind of hyperpop for the Dance Dance Revolution crowd (much like jungle eventually evolved into clownstep drum & bass).
Anywho, this tape focuses those prime years for UK Happy Hardcore, 1995-1997. Enjoy!
