About Freeform Hardcore
Freeform hardcore, also originally known as trancecore or simply freeform, is a substyle of Hardcore [EDM] music which heavily draws elements from Trance music (Hard Trance in particular). Freeform began developing in the mid-1990s in parallel with the Happy Hardcore scenes of the United Kingdom, Netherlands and Germany. In contrast to happy hardcore, freeform productions tend to be more instrumental-oriented while incorporating straight 4/4 beat patterns, faster tempos around 150-200 BPM, trance-inspired structures, acid-style basslines, and a more intense and synthesized production in general.
Notable producers and DJs that led to the development of freeform hardcore in the United Kingdom include Sharkey, original coiner of the term and Bonkers DJ, Kevin Energy, founder of the Nu Energy Collective, and Billy “Daniel” Bunter. UK Hardcore went to emerge in the late-90s as an offshoot of happy hardcore which shared various stylistic similarities with freeform, notably the substitution of earlier rave elements with more contemporary influences.
In the Netherlands, a form of Dutch trancecore music became prominent by the Cenobite Records label, infusing Gabber rhythms with the melodic elements and accessible appeal of most freeform. Certain trancecore producers went to share compositional traits with early Psytrance, which has led this style to be alternatively known as “psycore”, hence the name.
