    Now, don't laugh, but I'm looking for some gabber recommendations. I've always had a soft spot for gabber, it always makes me grin. In the past I've enjoyed it on nights out. As I now 'consume' most of my music at home, on vinyl, I think it's come time to buy some gabber records.

    It's at this point I realise how ignorant I am about the genre. Could people please recommend some 'classic' tunes, labels etc? I'm thinking I'll buy a handful of 12 inches from Discogs. So I can teach my 5 year old daughter about 'proper' music.

    Can anyone post examples of two brilliant gabber tunes and then two shit ones? Id like to see what the spectrum of good to bad is.

    I guess would have to be from the same era too...I doubt the sound has changed that much from 92, but there must be some differences?

    Gabber makes my brain hurt, I used to walk into a room at parties and my whole body and brain would feel wrong and then I'd realise it was a gabber set.

    Well I'm a dabbler really but there are different styles (and there are also people out there who will have arguments about whether speedcore/doomcore/gabber are the same thing...).

    If I was to pick a couple I like:

    As for ones I don't like - I don't like the ones that have that sort of 'boink' drum sound on them but I can't bring any good examples to mind!

    It's music for mixes though really rather than individual tunes. Someone like DJ Producer would be a good start (again someone will probably say he's not gabber but meh). I'd also really recommend some of the early DJ/Rupture mixes for examples of how it can be worked into other styles - Minesweeper Suite is a classic IMO which touches on it for a few tunes.

    3 Steps Ahead is a name I remember, no expert on the form but I've always loved it.

    Nice to see that.

    Will listen later, but pretty sure at least a couple of these tunes posted so far aren't gabber. Hard and fast isnt enough I dont think

    For some strange reason I had it in my head that you LOVED gabber!!! Dunno why.

    I find that what passes for gabber these days is a bit ploddy. Almost like hardstyle in its monotony. So back to the classics...

    And some gabber out in the wild

    Check out some old mixes from either Loftgroover or Liza N' Eliaz. They're normally bang on

    Oh yeah I forgot about the 'proper Music' bit .. have a Fear Factory remix :D :thumbs:

    Fuck it, since I'm there now I'll chuck in a Morbid Angel remix too.

    On Topic...
    Whereas Illud Divinum Insanus is not Morbid Angel's finest hour, there's a double CD album of remixes, and that is a pretty good laugh. All gabba, dubstep, techno, hard house and other filthy noises.
    Death metal growls all the way though, so not everyone's chalice of tea.

    Here's another remix of the same tune, quite different.

    I do remember some weird gabba dudes I knew, they made some banging tunes, but they were called "Shitspitters" so I'm gonna let someone else Google that :hmm:
