Gabba

Gabba or gabber is a type of Techno Music[?] distinguesed by the loud and often agressive sound. A weird freaky sound can make a good gabber track. Also referred to as Hardcore.

Often related to the excessive use of Ecstacy and other drugs.

The style started in the late 1980s, became popular because of Happy hardcore[?] that also caused it to become a lot less popular with the old crowd.

The commercial organisation ID&T[?] helped a lot in making the music popular by organising parties and selling merchandise.

Styles of related music are Terror or Terrorcore[?], Happy hardcore[?]. The in late 1990s Hardhouse[?] can be considered a derivative from Gabber and Hardtrance[?].

When gabber house parties became less frequent, gabbers often went to hardtrance[?] parties instead.

The term originated in the Netherlands and is derived from the Jeddish[?] word gabber meaning friend. The story is one of these gabbers wanted to enter a club in Amsterdam, where the bouncer said, "No gabber, you can't come in here."
