Gabber: it’s not for the faint hearted. Beats faster than a pneumatic drill, stadium rock-sized levels of distortion.
With such intense music, comes intense parties. Every photo ever taken at a gabber rave looks like the most ridiculous experience, packed full of gleaming skinheads, extended jaws, bulging eyes, pumping fists. Raw, real.
We recently caught a Gabber Eleganza set, and the energy was every bit as raucous and feral as we hoped. The artist runs a website which is a treasure trove of incredible images that get you slightly off nut just by looking at them.
If that sounds appealing, check out a selection below and head to gabbereleganza.tumblr.com for more.
