One of the girls thought it would be funny to slip a few tracks into an upcoming dance playlist and see how well they went over. I'd probably laugh, but that's a lot of work for a chuckle. In reality, I don't think the intensity of most of what I listen to is that extreme, and even when it is, I greatly prefer a melodic touch too (which is why in general, I prefer hardtrance to hardstyle—the latter tends to be a bit more noisy for little gain in "hardness" sometimes.)
Anyway, for the heck of it, I whipped up real quick a short set (half an hour) of some of the stuff in my collection that leans on the more intense. It's not comprehensive, and it's not meant to be; it's meant to be a sample of some of my favorite of the harder of my songs.
These need to be played on a system that can handle the bass, though. Especially about halfway through, between 14:53 to about 15:15 or so. If that section doesn't kick your butt, your sound system is not capable.
The tracks are, in order:
- Luca Antolini vs Steve Hill "Contatto (RVRS BASS Mix)"
- The Donkey Rollers "The Last City on Earth"
- Builder "Her Voice" (Combination of two slightly different versions of the Headhunterz remix)
- Masters of Chaos "Retribution (S.H.O.K.K. Retro Remix)"
- Blutonium Boy "Floorkilla (Nik Import Mix)
- R.B.A. "No Alternative (DBD Remix)"
