Genres / Speedcore
Speedcore style of Techno music, characterised by high of beats per minute and aggressive themes. The name originates from the high BPM, which is always higher than 200 BPM. Earlier Speedcore tracks averaged at about 250 BPM, whereas more recent track sometimes exceed 1000 BPM. Some people classify higher BPM tracks (around 500-600 BPM), as splittercore, and upon reaching 1000 BPM and beyond, the music becomes known as extratone. Whether these terms are necessary or widely used is debatable, partial because of the human ability to perceive differences in BPM at these speeds.
