Gunz For Hire - Bolivia ( A2REC038 Preview)

An example of a Rawstyle influenced Hardstyle track track.

Rawstyle is a relatively new subgenre of Hardstyle. It commonly incorporates features from early Hardstyle and Hardcore, such as reverse bass, a darker melody and a distorted kick. 

There is also a type of Rawstyle which is more of a solo genre. It can be seen in the works of artists such as Warface, Dj Thera, Deetox and more. This kind of Rawstyle is normally made with a kick that is very distorted. It is mostly focused on the punch (The 'hit' of a Hardstyle kick) with a much weaker tail than Hardstyle. 

There is also a version of Hardstyle that is influenced from Rawstyle. This normally features a more distorted kick but it is not nearly as focused on the punch as full Rawstyle. Above is an example of this kind of Hardstyle.  

Rawstyle can often be very experimental, often using unconventional techniques and methods to achieve a certain sound.
