   Hardcore 2002!
Phew what a year for hardcore! 2002 is the year hardcore was re-born, fresh new talent as well as strong new material from established artists made it a year to remember.

2002 for hardcore saw many things, firstly at HappyHardcore.com we gained just over 4200 new members!, the web site saw over 34 million (34,000,000) server request (hits), we streamed over 30 Terabytes (axp 30,000 Gigabytes) of HappyHardcore Radio! and saw over 38,000 posts in the forums.

2002 saw the launch of the following new labels:

MasterWax
ATM
RainDance
DFM Records
Next Generation - re-launch
New Essential platinum - re-launch
CLSM
Elation
JobSeekers
FBI - re-launch
e-plus
Digital Beatz
Phase 4 Records
Raw Elements

With several CD compilations coming out from:
Rumour Records
React
Ministry of sound

2002 also saw: HappyHardcore.DJ free hardcore email service was launched, MixMag magazine (UK) had a 4 page feature on hardcore and two months later featured a free hardcore CD on the front cover, Flip & Fill covered the hardcore classic Shooting Star which reached #3 in the UK national charts and well as Kelly Llorenna with the resung classic hardcore track Heart of gold, Helter Skelter returned with hardcore and finally so many new hardcore supports, DJ's, artists, producers and events showed that hardcore will never die.

I obviously could not include everyone and everything here that happened in 2002, I probably missed a few things here and there as well... From everyone at HappyHardcore.com we wish everyone around the world safe and happy new year.

Get ready for a MASSIVE Hardcore 2003!

   Hardcore goes front cover MixMag!
Word from the editor's over at MixMag (UK based club magazine) is that the next issue's cover that is on sale end of Jan 2003 has a hardcore front cover with the main "club feature" also about hardcore. The front cover is to be as it stands now a shot of a raver at the UK party Neo (held last month) with the main feature about following around a bunch of Godskitchen (UK Hardhouse party) regulars turned hardcore virgins. MixMag has a word of warning for the slaters that "it's not an in depth music or DJ led piece it's a club feature."

As it stands this will cause alot of people to panic and hit the commercialization button, having not read or seen the article I'm going on record to say I fully support MixMag and their efforts for hardcore, yes I have read what they have done in the past, but my reasons are this: In the last few years (Happy) hardcore has been given a backseat to Hard House and Trance, everyone knows many hardcore people left the hardcore and the hardcore darkest times were around 98-99 where you would get no credit at all for DJing, producing or writing anything hardcore. If it wasn't for artists and DJ's such as Hixxy, Brisk, Ham, Scott Brown just to name a few sticking with hardcore HappyHardcore.com and hardcore music might have ended up like 70's disco (no one making anything new) and the hardcore scene to slowly bleed to death because there is no fresh blood.

I started HappyHardcore.com late 1998 and have slowly seen a new generation of hardcore supporters as well as the people that stuck with it during those dark times making hardcore massive again. This is not due to any one person or action, all the hardcore DJ's globally, all the members of USH, ravers that go to the events, the supporters of the Happy2BHardcore and Bonkers CDs and of course all the members of HappyHardcore.com have made hardcore massive, and trust me this is just the tip of the iceberg. We have always wanted respect for sticking with what we love and we are now getting the attention of big media. Of course there are going to be a few articles here and there that we will not agree with, but like most of you already say we don't need the media to make hardcore popular, hardcore will never die and this proves it. What other dance genre has EVER come back with such devolved spirit? Sure media will attract more people, but hardcore has enough core supports, producers and DJ's to take the extra and lose them again when the media starts to write about something else, besides this isn't about the people it is about the respect.

Hardcore is now a global force, we now have major hardcore scenes in the UK, Japan, Australia, USA and Canada like never before. Let the media write about us, keep them informed, tell them hardcore is here is stay!

Author: silver  
We at MasterWax records and HappyHardcore.com are extremely proud to bring everyone this ground breaking HappyHardcore track to you.

We are proud to introduce to the world Misono with her debut track "Konomama" remixed by DJ's Uraken (Remix Records), and DJ Kaos (Go Mental). This is a first for hardcore as this is the FIRST (released) hardcore track with full Japanese vocals.
Audio:
[A] - Konomama [Uraken remix!]
[AA] - Konomama [DJ Kaos remix]



Don't let the Japanese vocals throw you.... this isn't some speed up Japanese hardcore cheese.... this is quality and the first time you hear this track played in full you will know it as well, like we did...

   We are about to take you into world of the L-U-N-A-C Remix of my dear friend BLAZE! (MWX003)
Author: silver  
Blaze are back! Many rumors are flying around the place to who did the remix's for the new Blaze track, well I am proud to say that the rumors are correct (for once) and the new Blaze! track titled "Crazy little fingers" released on MasterWax (MWX003) is remixed by the legendary Luna-C (Courtesy of KFA), while on the flip phosphor and justrich in classic Blaze! (Bang!) style. Alot of thought went into this release and we believe the final product something that everybody will love.
Audio:
A - Crazy Little Fingers [DJ Luna-C Remix - (Courtesy of KFA)]
AA - Crazy Little Fingers [dj phosphor & dj justrich Ruffed Up Mix]




Nick from Blaze! says (from the web site annoucment:
"Overall, we reckon we couldn't have picked a better first release. Opinions range from "Another anthem, sure to be as big as Shooting Star", to .... "Doesn't it sound a bit dated? Sort of '98 ish ??"

Well we hope the first is true, and as for the second, that's also true maybe to a degree, but we wanted to appeal to the same people that have enjoyed our work before. Therefore, the typical Bang! style was required for the new transition to Blaze! but we're exploring new territory with the Luna C mix (thank you very much Chris), of Crazy Little Fingers, (CLF for short) and although very different, we reckon it's doing what hardcore should be doing and moving forward. Don't worry, we know many of you enjoy our tracks just as they are, so we'll strive to keep that style on as many releases as we can, but be prepared for us experimenting a little.

Also, our ethos is to have great hardcore mixes of great songs/vocals, because that's what we do best. So we'll continue writing top quality material and in most cases release it first into the hardcore scene before those songs get exploited anywhere else. "Shooting Star" for instance may do very well in other genres, but it's roots will ALWAYS be in hardcore. That can never change."

From same crew that brought you the absolute best in happy hardcore tunes (Shooting star, Cloudy Days, Flower needs the rain, 'til the day) are back again with another tune that will surly raise the dead with it's bone tingling vocals and thumping beat ... Introducing Nimrod with their very first single "Shine A Light", featuring the gorgeous Jo James on world renowned HectTech Records.

Quote from the Nimrod crew:
"We decided to launch two new acts recently, Blaze! and Nimrod, to replace the ever popular Bang! and Stealth. We're going to be bringing loads of new tracks, the FINEST hardcore around, for many years to come. Our dedication to the scene is unstoppable."
Keep your eyes peeled in 2002... this is only the beginning.

   New look
HappyHardcore.com gets an upgrade. We have now a personalization engine in place linked into the forums. What does that mean? Well basically you can enter your own events into the new events section and only you will be able to see them (kind of like Yahoo) for example. There will be global events placed in there from the admin's and moderators of the site so you will never miss a party or a release date again plus you can add your own events that only you can see like your friend's birthday's and such. If you wish your event to be a global event post it in the events forum.
Also on the upgrade plate are avatars for the forums. Yes you can now show your own little picture next to your post, with nearly 900 to select from I am sure you will be able to find one that suits you.
We also now have polls linked to the forums. So we don't go poll mad (like other forum boards) we will be only allowing admin poll creation for now. Enjoy and keep the hardcore rolling.
