Gabber documentary

This is a documentary about Gabber, a loud and aggressive form of dance music, starting in the early 90s in Rotterdam. It shows the musicians, the parties, and the fans. Especially their dance moves are worth seeing, I don’t know any dance moves as weird as these.

I was a teenager at this time and I saw it happening but I was always more into punk/metal. I actually got beat up once by gabbers at the time, for looking too alternative.

Most Dutch subcultures are copies of things happening in the USA. I really admire the gabbers for creating something of their own.
