Chicago, United States
Back in the late-90s, I played happy hardcore at a bunch of raves in the midwest. Almost everyone hated HHC back then, but I still had fun.
I also hosted two radio shows on WHPK from 1996-2002. One was hardcore-centric called 'Uplifted'; the other 'Live Mix Show' featured lots of local DJs. As I find old recordings of these shows, I'll post them.
PS. Long live the legend of DJ Phil Free Art (RIP) - mentor and friend, hardcore forever. http://thehappyleague.com/
