wtf is "nightcore" ??

Post by amishrobots » Sun Mar 05, 2017 2:08 pm

ok I read the wikipedia article, I've listened to a few tracks on youtube, and ...

so, "nightcore" is just taking other music and speeding it up? Am I understanding this correctly? Are Alvin and the Chipmunks considered "nightcore"? Why is it not just called "speedycore" or "hypercore" or "crackwhore"? is this related to "social drift"?

Does this mean that I was a "nightcore" dj when I was playing with my Dad's record player as a kid?

No .. it just uses samples that are sped up

I thought this was the same thing as Happy hardcore but apparently not.

Not really. Luke was trying to coin a term for something that didn't actually exist as a style of music that involved time stretching noise... so the only similar thing is the level of stupidity and the concept of messing with temporal effect filters.

But I have found several vids on youtube that seem to be just that; whole songs simply played faster. is this false nightcore? have I been lied to?

So I can't refer to "social drift" as "daycare" ?

perhaps I should not refer "social drift" at all.
