A nightcore edit is a remix track that speeds up the pitch and tempo of its source material by 10-30%. The name is derived from Nightcore, a Norwegian duo who released pitch-shifted versions of trance and eurodance songs, but now more boradly refers to any sped-up music. The Nightcore term was first used in 2002 as the name for a school project by Norwegian DJ duo Thomas S. Nilsen and Steffen Ojala Søderholm, known by their stage name as DJ TNT and DJ SOS respectively. The name Nightcore means "we are the core of the night, so you'll dance all night long", stated in their website named "Nightcore is Hardcore". The two were influenced by pitch-shifted vocals in German group Scooter's hardcore songs "Nessaja" and "Ramp! (The Logical Song)", stating in an interview that "There were so few of these kinds of artists, we thought that mixing music in our style would be a pleasure for us to listen to" and "Nightcore has become a style of music, a way to make the music happier – 'happy hardcore' as they say."The duo set a template of a track in the style: a 25% sped-up (commonly to around 160 to 180 beats per minute) of a trance or eurodance song. The nightcore music has been compared to happy hardcore and bubblegum bass due to its fast tempos, energetic feel and high-pitched vocals. Nightcore made five albums of sped-up versions of trance recordings, including their 2002 thirteen-track debut album Energized and their later albums Summer Edition 2002, L'hiver, Sensación and Caliente. Their first album was made with eJay, while all of their later work was made with what they described as "top secret" programs. All of their records were sold to their friends and DJs around their area.
