Hardbass or hard bass (Russian: , tr. khardbass, IPA: [x?rd'bas]) is a subgenre of electronic music which originated from Russia during the 2000s, drawing inspiration from UK hard house, bouncy techno, scouse house, powerstomp and hardstyle. Hardbass is characterized by its fast tempo (usually 150-170 BPM), donks, distinctive basslines (commonly known as "hard bounce"), distorted sounds, heavy kicks and occasional rapping. Hardbass has become a central stereotype of the gopnik subculture. In several European countries there have sprung up so-called hardbass scenes,[1] which are events related to the genre that involve multiple people dancing in public while masked, sometimes with moshing involved. From 2015 onward, hardbass has also appeared as an internet meme, depicting Slavic and Russian culture with the premiere of the video "Cheeki Breeki Hardbass Anthem".[2]
