Gabber seems to keep popping up. I’m hearing journalists at RA talk about it in passing. I’m hearing of DJs sneaking a track or two into their sets if they’re feeling brave.
I’ve never really listened to much of it. Outside of a quick flick around YouTube that has more often than not re-enforced my ideas that it’s not for me, I’ve barely come across it.
The increase in chatter about the genre has taken me somewhat by surprise. I understand that there has been a strong and ongoing scene in the Netherlands and the UK for the past decade or so, but I’m starting to wonder if the sound is about to start crossing over into other parts of the electronic underground.
Any recommendations on where to start if i wanted to dive in?
Anyone have any fondness for this (often maligned) style?
Has anyone else noticed the above or am I suffering from Confirmation Bias?
