    Any well known tracks/artists?
    according to wikipedia Grooverider helped to promote it.

    Would Krust- Warhead count as Hardstep?

    It was just another sub genre thats all mate, Warhead came out in 97 and the Hardstep thing was happening around 94.

    I'm sure if warhead was out in 94 it would have been classed hardstep.

    They didn't set out to make it (hardstep), it was just classed as that when people heard it out.

    wasn't it just the same thing as jungle? I thought in 94 there were no sub genres, just jungle?

    isn't there a difference between like hardstep and jungle tekno? Is hardstep just standard jungle and jungle tekno like hardcore with amen breakbeats in it? (yes unaware about the history)

    as far as i know... and i don't know much... jungle has a more seperated bassline from the snare beat, and hardstep has basslines that take up the whole track, thats what wiki says.

    The term jungle tekno came before the term hardstep, so obviously the styles are different.

    I'd say when the term Jungle Tekno was being bandied about the music still had the hardcore kick drum to it as well as breakbeats and ragga/Reggae/dub influences.
