This Gabber Eleganza rave whistle costs R22k
Ravers get your mouths on this limited-edition Gabber Eleganza rave whistle- for €1350. (R22k + change).
Italy’s Gabber Eleganza joined forces with London jewellery designer Joy BC to create a limited-edition rave whistle in honour of the iconic rave culture symbol.
Coming in at the hefty price of €1350, the rave whistle is made out of pure silver and has the words “NEVER” and “SLEEP” engraved on each side as well as BC’s London hallmark. The buyer also has the option to customize their whistle with a choice of four numbers, words or dates.
As noted in the Instagram announcement, this limited-edition whistle is representative of “anarchy, revolution and the sound of your mother telling you to get home after playing outside after 9 pm.”
“The whistle isn’t just an emblem of the times as it cuts through the air and digital noise, it’s also a bespoke piece that heralds back to traditions that are as much tribal as they are cerebral,” says Gabber Eleganza of the item. “The whistle represents anarchy, revolution and the sound of your mother telling you to get home after playing outside after 9 pm.”
Italian DJ Alberto Guerrini is the man behind Gabber Eleganza, which is an open-ended art project that was created as a spotlight on hardcore, post-rave counterculture.
Joy BC is an award-winning London-based jewelry designer that brings a conceptual, socio-political touch to fine jewellery.
