Music Update [Japanese Hardcore, aka J-Core]

For those of you unknowledgable:
"Following the trend of prefixing a genre name with J- to signify Japanese origin (eg J-pop, J-rock etc.), J-core is an abbreviated term for Japanese hardcore dance music.

Though many only associate this term with artists such as DJ Sharpnel who are well known for their very Japanese-flavoured anime/film sampling hardcore, the umbrella term can be used to describe many kinds of Japanese-flavoured hardcore, such as happy hardcore, freeform, speedcore and terrorcore."

I absolutely LOVE J-core and was introduced to my first J-Core artist DJ Sharpnel years back when I was playing Stepmania (DDR for the computer) and ITG (in the groove, like DDR but better C:). Since I haven't posted in awhile, here are some winners by my book ;)
