I got quite recently like maybe sometimes in 2010 into hardstyle, however it's the newer kind of hardstyle or what many "old" hardstyle fans would call "NuStyle" because of the added vocals and melody. Well I for one and many other also like this more "softer" version of hardstyle which can be suprisingly deep and feel like you get carried away by the music. The original hardstyle was like all about bass & rythm, not so much melodies/tunes or any vocals which to me becomes very boring to listen to in the long run. Seems since 2007 or more obvious in 2008 this newer style has somewhat started to dominate even if more traditional hardstyle is still present, mostly because of the anthems used for the different hardstyle events (mainly in the hardstyle homecountry netherlands) such as Qlimax, Qountdown, In Qontrol etc seems to favor songs that use catchy tunes in them so that probably makes it more acceptable among people.
What are your thoughts about hardstyle and what's your favorites?
