Hardbass or hard bass (Russian: , tr. hardbass, IPA: [x?rd'bas]) is a subgenre of electronic music which originated from Russia during the late 1990s, drawing inspiration from UK hard house, bouncy techno, Scouse house, and hardstyle. Hardbass is characterized by its fast tempo (usually 150-175 BPM), donks, distinctive basslines (commonly known as "hard bounce"), distorted sounds, heavy kicks and for the past few years occasional rapping. Hardbass has become a central stereotype of the gopnik subculture. In several European countries, so-called "hardbass scenes" have sprung up,[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 subcultures with the premiere of the video "Cheeki Breeki Hardbass Anthem".[2] In January 2018, Polish nationalists from Pozna?'s All-Polish Youth together with the "Sturm Pozna?'s" group organized a counter-demonstration of "White Hardbass!" during the Feminist, and pro-abortion "Black Protest" in Poznan. Counter-demonstrators dressed in white overalls danced the piece "Nash Gimn" by the group "Hardbass School". The abortionists from the black protest used against peaceful counter-demonstrators of the police who led them out of the Black Protest[].
