Hardcore spin-off with slower than usual tempos (140-150 BPM). Loud claps are layered over the kicks, thus creating a stomping beat that encourages dancers to jump to it. Bass and melody are usually arranged in a shuffle beat, which supports the stomping character.
Jumpstyle became one of the most popular Hard Electronic music genres during the period 2002-2005. During that period many Hardstyle & Hard Dance producers switched to Jumpstyle.
