I'd say it's Jungle Electronic using the Middle Eastern genre as a grounding.

Jungle? Far from it. This is happy hardcore with stray random eastern samples.

Heck... have it your way. Happy Hardcore it is. At least from what Wiki defines it as. The closest thing I could think of at that speed was Jungle until my discovery of Happy Hardcore. I think an eastern sample straying in is a bit of an oversimplification, but then again..

This is 100% Happy Hardcore. No more, no less.

Errr... having listened to some Happy Hardcore... Honestly, I'm more inclined to go the Jungle direction... but then I am probably using the Jungle genre incorrectly. Happy Hardcore has a distinct "Happy" element about it which this doesn't.

I think I'm just going to back out of this one.

Well, drop the "Happy" then. Jungle has a completely different kind of beat. This beat and vibes are 100% hardcore, like in this or this. or this :D

Well i've listened several happy hardcore tracks, they could included samples from various sources and genres, like house, pop, classical, techno, and so on.

The definition of the "Happy" part, in the nutshell is:
much more lighter and brighter than the regular hardcore, doesnt contain killer heavy sounds, so its much more acceptable to masses. In most cases it has high pitched sampled vocals, rather than the usual, very deep pitched and detuned "hardcore" ones.

yep, those are some clear examples of the good old cheezy happy hardcore sounds :)

Scot Brown is also a happy hardcore "god", everybody knows this from him, ant it clearly describes the genre

I'm currently at work, so I cannot check the song.

If the rythm is 4/4 (every beat has a basedrum) and its pretty fast, with some mild variations on the off-beats, then its happy hardcore.

If the drums are quite irregular and can be described as a continuous drumfill, then its jungle. Anything in between probably is electronic or perhaps even Drum'n'Base?

Listening now...

This is a mix between hardcore and happy hardcore. It leans pretty much towards happy hardcore, but happy hardcore also has these happy melodies in it, which are not present here.

This definitely is not jungle.

Thank you for help, everyone.

I have another question:
Is there style named extreme?
Usually there's used halftone note shifts, from time to time, which pumps up nerves a little bit.

There isn't.

The part "hard" already means that it is extreme.
