In the late 80s, the popularity of acid house spread from Britain across the North Sea to the Netherlands. In the Dutch capital, house music was considered the lot of big boys and dudes, it was played in trendy establishments, it was considered refined and elite, and one could enter the glamorous clubs of Amsterdam only in expensive clothes. No workouts. Gabber, you can't come in here - "Dude, you can't" - a quote from club bouncers, known in metropolitan circles.
Rotterdam, on the other hand, looked at all the rich party-goers with proletarian contempt and disgust. Rotterdam danced to hard Belgian records, in which synthesizer howls coexisted with accelerated breakbeats, and the once-calm house rhythm became heavier and became like a military march. Soon, local musicians began to release their own records: at first they imitated the Belgian ones (what is there, half an hour by train to Antwerp), and later twisted their own style. nine0003
When Dutch house DJ Kees Hös (KC The Funkaholic) was asked about Rotterdam music in '92, he replied: "It's just a bunch of raging gabbers." The quotation became fateful.
Rotterdam seethed with hatred: not only was it always read as the second city of the country, but also music with you is considered second-rate to boot. The DJ and musician young Paul Elstak gave confidence, he ignited Rotterdam hardcore as best he could and engraved on one of the records of his Euromasters project the slogan: "Don't be ashamed to be a gabber!" At the end, he decorated the envelope of the gabber hit “Amsterdam? Where is it?!" a picture of a boy pissing on the capital. nine0003Paul Elstak
not ashamed to be a gabber
Word gabber is more than three hundred years old; it was borrowed from German Jews (Ashkenazi) and firmly sewn into Dutch street slang by thieves and other criminals. Gabber is dude, bro, buddy, bro.
In the early 90s, Paul Elstak organized gabber parties at the Parkzisch club, naturally in Rotterdam. There was no strict dress code, there was a very democratic entrance and a style convenient for quick body movements was developed very quickly. Music in 250 beats provokes a full return to the dance floor - this raises the body temperature, this evaporates sweat and increases the overall humidity in the room (even in a large one). Wet jeans are uncomfortable, a loose tracksuit is better - it does not restrict movement even when seven streams flow down. nine0003 Gabber zijn is geen schande!
Good tone is a sports suit for Australian tennis players, made in Italy, with a kangaroo on the label. Special chic - among all the colors and patterns, find a unique one and be able to defend it; a beautiful and bright suit is now like a currency that can be squeezed out. Now the old-school trowels "Ossie" (that's what the brand and all Australians and New Zealanders are called) cost 100, 70 euros, and this is still at a discount. Girls put on a sports top under the trowel, while guys usually put on either a T-shirt or a naked torso. nine0003
An oath of allegiance to gabber music begins with shaving your head. It is appropriate to recall that football hooligans also shave their heads - the basis of the proletarian youth, who had enough of both Rotterdam and Amsterdam. And, of course, the two cities had warring teams: Amsterdam had Ajax, and Rotterdam had Feyenoord, two leading clubs in the country, each of which alternately became the local champion, but the capital's Ajax was more titled, which invariably angered the Rotterdam fans . Well, as the fans recalled: "On Friday and Saturday I was at an illegal house party, and on Sunday I was shouting for Ajax." nine0003 Gabberins and gabbers. Photo of the exactitudes project, which arose in the mid-nineties precisely because of the interest in the gabber clothing style
A shaved head contributes to better thermoregulation, and no hairstyle interferes with dancing. Girls who like gabber music (they are called gabberins, and sometimes the term gabber bitches) try to emphasize militancy, but also leave a hint of femininity: they evenly remove hair from either the temples and / or the back of the head, braiding the rest into one braid or tail. Only the most courageous give a slap in the face to public taste - they, on a par with men, shave their heads to zero. nine0003
The last element of corporate identity: shoes. Nike Air Max 90 sneakers are the undisputed and permanent favorite in the gabber wardrobe. An indestructible pair with a thick sole is just right for trampling khaki, - a quick single dance to gabbu. The dance floor is full of people, you can’t spread your arms — they are kept very close to you and therefore they are bobbing with one foot, frantically stamping to the threshing rhythm.
And to really get into it - watch the film "Gabbers". But first, take away the old women and children. nine0003

Hakka - hardcore dancing
The Hakka dance originated in the Netherlands in the late eighties. In the Netherlands, its name is pronounced Hakken. This dance appeared as an addition to the rapidly developing hardcore musical style.

Origins of Hakka dance
The Hakka style of dancing emerged in the late eighties. The impetus for its appearance was the development and wide popularity of the hardcore musical style. There is no exact data on the possible ancestor of this dance. Hakka has become widespread among hardcore fans (gabbers) around the world. Although the Netherlands is the official birthplace of khaki, many European countries have also made a huge contribution to the formation of this dance in the form in which we see it now. nine0003
The tempo of the music to which Hakku is danced is quite fast, about 140-200 beats per minute. As a rule, popular hardcore tunes are selected for dancing, although the general style of music is important. Hakku includes a number of elements that form the basis of this dance, the rest is improvisation. Improvisation is carried out within the strict framework of the hardcore subculture. The basic elements of Hakki include short steps that are performed in the form of stepping over the legs. In this case, the frequency of stepping should coincide with the general rhythm of the composition. From time to time, new foot movements (throws) are added to the dance. The dancer's hands are in free flight, this is pure improvisation. The main thing is that they emphasize the musical pattern of the work, repeat the rhythm of the melody. nine0003
Hakka in Russia
Hakka dance appeared a little later than hardcore music style. In its development, the dance, as a rule, follows the path of musical style development. In Russia, hardcore became the most popular musical movement in 1995.
