Gabber Eleganza

Gabber Eleganza is a curated archive and music project mainly focused on hardcore aesthetics and post-rave continuum cultures. Starting as a blog in 2011 with the purpose of reevaluating and reframing an often denigrated subculture, the project eventually evolved into a broader sphere through DJ Sets, publications, exhibitions and live performances (the now infamous Hakke Show) which capture the brute, in-your-face sound of hardcore as well as the current wave of underground club and electronic music drawing inspiration from rave and hardcore sounds.
