You may be asking yourself "What is hardstyle?" Here's your answer according to this wonderful thing the Internet has called "Wikipedia":

"Hardstyle is an electronic dance genre that originated in the Netherlands in the 1990s. It involves mixing influences from hardtechno and hardcore. Hardstyle typically consists of a deep, hard-sounding kick drum, intense faded or reversed basslines accompanying the beat, a dissonant synth melody, and detuned and distorted sounds." (Wikipedia)

With that being said, I have decided to compile a list of my 10 favourite hardstyle tracks. Unfortunately, I have decided not to include any honourable mentions with this list. Also, I have changed the format of the presentation when compared to my Pendulum list. Now that I have gotten the preliminaries out of the way, I shall now present the new format along with my 10 favourite hardstyle tracks.
