Stop deleting[edit]

Feel free to shorten the artists, events and labels list. But do not blatantly delete it (that includes the exernal links and bottom section!)

Why not? Do you think the article really benefits from having a huge list of DJs and MCs, 99% of whom aren't even notorious enough to have their own wikipedia page? The links section was pretty much just people advertising their own websites - sites like ush/DSI/ deserve to be there, but links to promotors should not.
Guys, I think we should create a seperate page to list all producers who have had at least one release on a major UK Hardcore label, same for Vocalists and one for major UK Hardcore labels with a link to their discogs page. I tried doing it but fail at wiki's tables ;c someone do this and link to them in the main article? - KO9 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:54, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
I know it's a bit late, but I second the notion for removing the Notable Artists section altogether and perhaps working some key names into the main body. Otherwise the Notable Artists needs a serious pruning. 3Form (talk) 00:08, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

This was a quick knock up but gives a rough idea. It needs some work and more details. It should tone about happy hardcore being mocked - needs a NPOV - or at least explain (specifically relates to the late 1990s stuff) - and use various cites etc. Thanks --Revolt 21:29, 24 February 2006 (UTC)


What an awful article. Endless lists of DJs, MCs, labels and events....most of which are no-name or so minor that it's obvious that someone added them to big themselves up a bit. I trimmed out a lot of the shit, but that whole section should be removed really....especially because almost every name listed didn't have a linked page anyway.

Agreed, it just reads like one big advert at the moment; I removed a lot of those artists out too a while ago (including my own name!) but they seem to have all crept back in again. It's full of mistakes too; Darwin is most certainly not Australian, and most of those artists listed in the Japan section aren't what would be considered UK hardcore. *sigh* JAKAZiD (talk) 00:12, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Josh, you are signed to one of the big UK Hardcore labels, you deserve to be on the list IMO. (talk) 10:15, 7 February 2009 (UTC)


warning about too long an intro can be removed?

Sounds like an advert for a very poor music genre. An absolute disgrace. Very piss poor article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:30, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

its three lines O.o

it is abit pants, theres alot more that could be said and the list takes up half the page. maybe the list could be a seporate article with a link at the bottom to it? also much more should be written about the history of uk hardcore and another section should explain the extent of uk hardcore today. practically the whole thing needs to be re-written as i think its too brief and practically ignores the 21 century revival and the fact than uk hardcore was reinvented after the so called "death of hardcore" and so on. does anyone agree?

UK hardcore and Happy hardcore[edit]

Someone with specific knowledge on the matter (not me, unfortunately) should expand on the connection a bit more, otherwise I propose that the relevant information from this article be merged into the "Happy hardcore" article as a subsection. (They're not quite parent/child or sibling genres, but they're not the same thing, either.) --Zarggg (talk) 14:16, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Not encyclopedic[edit]

This article reads more like a fan page than an encyclopedia article. Unsourced statements, events, DJs, general opinions and unencyclopedic language ("Nowadays"? really?). Not NPOV, speculates that UK Hardcore is inevitably going to increase in popularity when there is no evidence of this. There has been a citation tag on this article since March 2007. I'm going to go ahead and be bold and remove the unencyclopedic content. (talk) 22:12, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
