Gabber Eleganza at Jetztmusik Festival
Representing the wilder, high-speed styles, the rave archivist goes in hard.
Milan-based Alberto “Gabber Eleganza” Guerrini has dedicated himself to the preservation and homage of post-rave and gabber culture through a legendary archive of photos and mixes. In the Gabber Eleganza universe, the genre is a mixture of UK happy hardcore, Belgium new beat and fast beats in the vein of Prodigy. In recent years the Gabber Eleganza project has enjoyed a good amount of attention, from DJ sets to exhibitions, fanzines and a performance called “The Hakke Show.” In this episode, the gabber lover brings his rave selections to the hallowed halls of Mannheim’s national theater.
