Merch drops just stepped up a whole new level following a link-up between Italy's Gabber Eleganza and jewellery designer Joy BC.
The gabber afficionado has enlisted the London-based design house to produce a limited-edition rave whistle made out of pure silver, and it won't come cheap. The item, which is limited to just 40 units, is set to retail at €1350.
Joy BC and Gabber Eleganza are also allowing each buyer to customise the whistle with any words of their choice.
"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 9pm."
If you've got €1350, you can order one here where you can also find more information on the bespoke item.
Earlier this year, Gabber Eleganza, AKA Alberto Guerrini, launched a new mixed-media label called Never Sleep.
