How much is enough?
Born in 2017 from the eclectic mind of the Italian DJ and artist Alberto Guerrini (aka Gabber Eleganza), Never Sleep focuses on the hardcore and rave scene. Gabber Eleganza initially started as a blog which quickly flourished throughout the last several years. The aim of the project is to build up a bridge between the sonic landscape and aesthetic side of Hardcore and post-rave cultures and the contemporary culture of music and art through printed publications, music, installations and live performances. Gabber Eleganza invites Snake Gang, Soraya and Lizzitsky.
