Fabric Presents Nicola Cruz

    Born and raised in Ecuador, Nicola Cruz has found his own unique way to tap into Latin America’s illustrious musical past to create something utterly contemporary.

    Cruz’s ‘fabric presents’ shows awareness of the power of ancestral cosmology over art and music whilst driving fiercely towards the strange, experimental, and unexpected of underground electronica. From here he curates the first of the fabric mixes with strong roots in South America.

    Opening on the powerfully stabbing ‘Everything Falls Into Place’ from MMM (Errorsmith & Fiedel), the mix sweeps through bass, breaks, techno, analogue-glitch, all the way to the folky Portuguese lyrics of ‘Mensagem Enviada’ from Rico Jorge.

    Nick León, Verraco, Veruna, machìna and Marcela Días Sindaco - whose sultry vocals also weave through Cruz’s own ‘Contato’ - are a few of the artists who have provided exclusives that count towards the fourteen unheard tracks on an essential delivery to the fabric series.

    Fabric Presents Mind Against

      Mind Against’s gift is for creating emotion through the synths and percussive instruments in their studio where their slick, moving take on techno makes for a special kind of peak across festivals and club dancefloors. Their mix for fabric - that coincides with a fast-moving ticket selling date at the club the weekend of its release - draws on the psychedelic hooks of 1980s soundtracks and modern dance music’s emphasis on sound design to create a distinctive and immensely powerful compilation. Eleven exclusive tracks grace the eighteen track comp – tunes all matched by the melodic genre and written by friends of the Fognini brothers. The standout track of the mix is the closing number – a transcendent collaborative effort between Mind Against and young innovator Dyzen.

      Fabric Presents TSHA

        BBC Radio 1’s Breakthrough Artist Of The Year for 2021, TSHA’s DJ sets bring a bright future-faced energy, while also respecting vintage dancefloor sounds and a classic raver spirit.

        It’s a feeling she’s transported into creating her ‘fabric presents’ work that spans rave, ‘90s dance, house, techno, UKG, soul, grime, disco and bass music and includes her own exclusive ‘BOYZ’.

        It was the idea of acid house (see smiley artwork) and the idea of old skool rave culture plus the ethos around peace and love that inspired TSHA.

        Just as Bonobo gave her track ‘Sacred’ a platform on his fabric compilation so she introduces up-andcoming artists to her mix. They all echo the distinctly British club culture sound she wants to pay tribute to with this work.

        Fabric Presents Leon Vynehall

          Leon Vynehall follows his second album Rare, Forever that landed in many of 2021’s Best Album charts with a spot on the ‘fabric presents’ series. His mix bursts with exclusives from collaborators Skee Mask, Or:la, Gaunt, Avon Blume and Ehua, and his own ‘Sugar Slip (The Lick) that merges a garagey bassline with euphoric moments of 90s trance. The compilation opens with a spoken word introduction from Wesley Joseph, and proceeds effortlessly through ambient from artists Zebrablood and Newworldaquarium, hip-hop (from Wax), breakbeat, the dense dub of Mala and the Afro-Portuguese edge of house with tracks from Bubas Produçoes and A.k.Adrix. Vynehall displays his unique ability to weave together different genres and textures in a way that is technically fascinating while still warm and very listenable.

          Fabric present a high-octane tribute to jungle, footwork and techno from rising star Sherelle who, across a killer new mix for the iconic label, rarely lets the tempo drop below 150BPM! 

          Including early footwerk pioneers like the late legend DJ Rashad and former  dancer RP Boo, alongisde jungle innovators such as Tim Reaper and Cloud9; it also features New York's AceMo and Kush Jones while Miami is repped by the duo INVT. As you'd expect, Sherelle doesn't let the energy and intensity drop over the entire mix which her characteristic flamboyant, fast and wild mixing style. On the vinyl, the best bits of the mix are presented in their full form.

          Special one for me is Dub One's "The Clash" which for me is the very epitome of that hardcore pirate radio sound popularized by Bizzie B and a thousand faceless bedroom DJs across the mid 90s. Nice to see hear including some high powered techno bangers in there too! Big ups Sherelle.

          Immediately signed by XL upon their inception, Overmono have quickly become a dominant force within the UK dancefloor electronics scene. 12"s on AD 93 and Poly Kicks have furthered their credentials with club goers and electronic music lovers alike, leading us nicely to this incredibly well curated and expansive compilation for the enduring Fabric series. Inspired by cold, dark London nights, but celebrating the rich diversity of talent amongst the UK scene the mix takes in dubstep, dnb, techno and the experimental end of electronica. It features spoken word from Benjamin Zephaniah, Foremost Poets and the poetic lyrics of For Those I Love’s ‘I Have A Love’, making this a bold, upbeat, emotionally-moving, post-lockdown dancefloor comp.

          Inclusions of Orca’s classic ‘Intellect’ plus Artwork’s iconic white label ‘The Soul’ show the level of influence the brothers have in the scene. Rochdale-via-Manchester-via-Leeds' electronic troubadour Sockethead There's even an appearance from Rochdale-via-Manchester-via-Leeds' electronic troubadour Sockethead, whose self-reflective moments of synthesized ambi-noize, self-induced isolation and heart-spilling honestly were captured brilliantly on an LP for Youth earlier in the year.

            Rising through the queer American DJ circuit, Eris Drew and Octo Octa, co-owners of dance label T4T LUV NRG, share multiple decades between them actively participating within the dance music community and are currently both weekly residents on BBC Radio 1. The 21 track compilation was mixed from all-vinyl in their log cabin home and studio in the woods of New Hampshire, taking in cuts that span house, bassline, UK hardcore, and trance. It's includes exclusive tracks from both Octo Octa - 'River' – a trancey and euphoric house classic, and Eris - 'Reactiv-8' – an electro selection with Eris’s own vocals, as well as many rare 90s house gems previously limited to the collections of vinyl-heads and now available for download. Released alongside the comp is a double vinyl product with download code featuring ten full length tracks from the mix. 

            STAFF COMMENTS

            Matt says: Tasty compilation from a duo that cherish the sprawling umbrella of dance music right across the decades. They certainly know their onions - a thoroughly dug and presented mix which is fun and energetic whilst turning you onto some shit that you most likely haven't heard of - full marks!

            Fabric Presents Chase & Status - RTRN II FABRIC

              Chase & Status is the sixth instalment in the ‘fabric presents’ series. The mix captures the energy that inspired the trio for their ‘RTRN II Jungle’ album in 2019. It is a debut for the jungle genre in the label’s latest take on compilations.

              There are four exclusive Chase & Status tracks on the hefty 44-tracker, alongside featured artists who are the cream of the MCs of the scene. This homage to the UK’s drum & bass genre brings in the heavyweights like Ray Keith, DJ Rap, Dead Dred and Hype to name a few.

              A slew of recent jungle cuts from renowned label owner Shy FX weave into the high energy comp that charges with a spirit raw and fierce in a time of global uncertainty.

              STAFF COMMENTS

              Matt says: It's been 10 years since that infamous MCR warehouse party (if you know you know) and they've since achieved total world domination. Here the duo continue to ply their love of drum & bass and jungle, throwing in some exclusive and unreleased heat on the way.

              Fabric Presents Maribou State

                The mix is an eclectic mix of soul, funk, disco and electronica from across the decades compiled by Ninja Tune’s Chris Davids and Liam Ivory for the fifth edition in the fabric presents series. Maribou State’s recent sell-out tours across UK, USA and Europe came off the back of 2018’s longplayer ‘Kingdom of Colour’ that hit no.25 on the UK album charts. The mix includes 2 exclusive Maribou State tracks and a Maribou State remix of Radiohead’s Reckoner. It reflects the hours spent before heading to the club; drinks at a friend’s house, the journey into London and the anticipation in the build-up beforehand. They captured and interwove audio field recordings of themselves re-taking the journey to and from the club to reinforce their story

                20 Years Of Fabric

                  Using the platforms of fabric and FABRICLIVE that the London club has nurtured over the past 20 years, fabric Records presents the past and future with 20 artists across 20 original tracks made especially for this release, for the 20th Anniversary celebration of the beating heart of EC1.

                  fabric is widely acknowledged to have long supported the underground London house and techno scene. The breadth of talent here displays the far-reaching arms of the night that includes the the melodic techno of Nina Kraviz, the shuddering electro of Steffi and evolving experimental house of Margaret Dygas. New resident IMOGEN drives darko techno whilst Marcel Dettmann’s is a classic late-night sound. Houndstooth’s Call Super takes things down a deep melodic notch and Maya Jane Coles steps up with a playful slice of house. British dance music pioneer Sasha closes out on a euphoric high with layers of building vocal and melody.

                  FABRICLIVE represents the finest in dubstep, drum n bass, jungle, breaks and experimental beats. Houndstooth’s Special Request opens in trademark jungle style leading on to drum & bass luminaries Source Direct and J Majik. Shackleton and Pinch & Trim started playing the club during the birth of the UK dubstep scene and give a taste of the evolution of bass music. Daniel Avery and B.Traits show off their dancefloor versatility, while Rupture founder Mantra plants a flag for London’s vibrant musical future. Closing are two of the club’s longest associates Groove Armada and original resident James Lavelle as UNKLE.

                  Fabric Presents Kolsch

                    Fabric presents Kölsch’ is a ten-track journey of exclusive new material inspired by and named after flights from his gig schedule. Drawing from the routine experience of flying from show to show, each track imagines its own sonic world from solitary journeys at 30,000 feet. Rune Kölsch is responsible for developing a leftfield aesthetic now synonymous with the Kompakt label. Employing a tapestry of carefully arranged textures, he levitates his way through 60 minutes of blissful hypnotism. His productions offer a glimpse into a dreamy, visceral world full of transcendent moments. Building on a constant but gentle line of tension, his track selections tread the line between melancholic and uplifting. Microscopic percussive details roll through sprawling backdrops whilst animated glitches form subtle melodic leads.

                    STAFF COMMENTS

                    Matt says: Fabric don't let loose these solo artist albums very often. Ricardo Villalobos and Omar S both spring to mind - both seminal collections that expossed said artists to new and expanding fan bases. Now Kolsch is invited in by the seminal London label for a showcase of this delicate, fragile and serenely beautifully producer's work.

                    Fabriclive 98: Dimension

                      At the early stages of his career Dimension was already turning heads within both the drum & bass scene and specialist radio alike. A combination of effortless musicality and production prowess caught the attention of producers and DJs such as Andy C, Sub Focus, Chase & Status as well as Skrillex and deadmau5. These days Dimension is receiving mainstream success without deliberately releasing crossover music - striking the perfect balance between club and radio.

                      ‘FABRICLIVE 98’ is 56 blazing bass tracks creatively bound with energy and sensitivity. It is a definitive snapshot of drum & bass in 2018, featuring 22 exclusives coming from both bigger acts and underground artists, namely Chase & Status, Sub Focus, Calyx & Teebee, Metrik, Dossa & Locuzzed and Benny L.

                        Born in Birmingham, Preditah’s series of instrumental EPs, ‘Solitaire EP’, ‘Eightsome EP’, ‘Circles EP’, ‘Red Bull EP’, ‘Gears of Grime’, and ‘El Futuro EP’, ensured a growing presence on pirate radio and in the club. His breakthrough track, ‘The Big Wok’, was noticed by JME (Boy Better Know) and this association helped cement a fast-growing reputation.

                        FabricliveE 85 - Jesse Rose

                          As the owner of two record labels; A-Sided and Play It Down, and a highly regarded international DJ, Jesse Rose is a familiar name, even for those who reside outside of dance music circles. Indeed, having produced for the likes of Hot Chip, mentored artists like Christian Nielsen and Oliver $, and with collaborations with names such as Henrik Schwarz and Claude VonStroke under his belt, Jesse is more than just a DJ/producer, he’s a tastemaker, businessman and a bonafide legend of house music.

                          West London-born, Jesse started DJing in Bristol in the early ‘90s before moving back to London. A run of collaborations with Switch on his Dubsided label soon followed, leading to releases on Derrick Carter’s Classic and Rose’s own imprints, with Jesse forging a reputation for mixing sounds from other genres in his own unique productions. Since then he has produced over 100 tracks on labels including Get Physical, Junior Boys Own and Simple, and recorded over 100 remixes for the likes of Masters At Work, Armand Van Helden, Kevin Saunderson, Underworld and Childish Gambino.

                          Upon completing a 6 year residency at Panorama Bar, Jesse moved from Berlin to Los Angeles some years ago, and he now lives between two cities – Barcelona and LA – when not on tour around the world. He has worked on many collaborative projects throughout the years with artists including the aforementioned Henrik Schwarz, as Black Rose, Ninja Tune’s Seven Davis Jr. and Leon Ware, a former producer of Marvin Gaye. He is currently working on a new project called STAYGOLD with New York house don Junior Sanchez, with their first productions being remixes for Cassius and Mathias Kaden. With all of this under his belt, plus a relationship with fabric stretching to the early days of the club, the time was right for Jesse to step up to the FABRICLIVE mantle, and he more than delivers.
                          "I was in the middle of a six month tour of the world when I was asked to do the mix, so I was constantly finding decks in the middle of the night in these far-flung locations, to have a mix and make sure it had the right feel. I actually ended up mixing the compilation in New Jersey, Los Angeles and Sydney. Although I mixed it in three parts which I later stitched together, it was mixed live as I wanted it to represent how I would play in the club, to sound personal to what I do and not computerised." Jesse Rose
                          Ed Weathers’ cheeky ‘Love The Feeling High’ acapella heralds in prime cuts from Mannheim man Johnny D, ‘90s house icons Urban Soul (with Gerd on the remix), Chicago stalwart Gene Farris and more, sitting alongside the best of Play It Down and A-SIDED from the likes of Berlin producer Sqim, rising Danish talent Christian Nielsen and of course Jesse himself, who gifts an exclusive Dub version of his own ‘Touch ‘N’ Tease’ plus the glorious, hands in the air ‘It’s Not Over’ featuring Seven Davis Jr., included here as a ‘synthapella’. The 12” mix of Steve Silk Hurley’s effortlessly rousing ‘The Word Is Love’ ends proceedings on the same high we started with, a reminder that Jesse Rose – a true house music pioneer – is also one of the best selectors in the game.

                          Rising to prominence on Rinse FM and ruling for a decade at Kiss FM, Logan Sama has been at the forefront of presenting the best grime has to offer since the genre’s inception, lending a helping hand to the careers of such names as Wiley, Dizzee Rascal, Tinie Tempah, Wretch 32, Skepta, Ghetts, Jme, P Money, Preditah and many hundreds more.

                          Early DJ inspirations EZ, Karl Brown, Mike Lloyd and Fonti saw him gravitate from Brentwood, Essex to the capital with a growing obsession with the experimental productions of Oris Jay, Zinc, Zed Bias, Wookie, Steve Gurley and Groove Chronicles transitioning into the earliest appearances of grime. His notoriety on the grime-centric Uptown Records web forum caught the attention of Dugs and Slimzee on Rinse who granted him a prime time slot before Roll Deep on the then pirate station. Stationed alongside legends like EZ, Rodigan, Hype and Hatcha, his celebrated Kiss show broadcast to a dedicated audience, his final show in 2014 witnessed the crème de la crème of grime dropping in to pay due respect. Logan Sama has been a fabric regular over the years, from Run The Road to Playaz nights in room 2, Tropical and Butterz Room 1 takeovers and any number of FABRICLIVE events.

                          Far from a traditional DJ mix, FABRICLIVE 83 is an intricately curated album of exclusive beats and bars featuring contributions from luminaries and future stars of grime. Mixed with the enthusiasm, energy and passion his sets are known for, Logan Sama hasn’t just set the bar high for FABRICLIVE - he’s clean smashed it into orbit. 24 brand new and exclusive instrumentals from the likes of Wiley, Jme, Jammer, Terror Danjah, Rapid, Faze Miyake, Preditah and Kahn & Neek have been blessed in the mix with acapella bars from no less than 66 MCs including Novelist, D Double E, Ghetts, Flowdan, Merky Ace and Scrufizzer (and rarely is this phrase so apt) to name but a few.

                          “The creative freedom I have when working in Ableton allows me to edit, mix and remix tracks in ways you can’t do with turntables or CD players. Tracks are often used as building blocks in the form of loops and samples in order to create something completely new. Tracks are usually stripped down or minimal sounding to allow for layering and mixing with other tracks. The result is a mix that is more than the sum of its parts.” - Joris Voorn

                          Voorn weaves together a sinuous tapestry of deep techno from the mere strands of a staggering 65 tracks, cutting, chopping and editing together ambient cuts by Max Loderbauer and TCF with personal favourites pulled from the dusty rafters of his Amsterdam abode, such as Speedy J’s ‘Fill 17’ and Plastikman’s ‘Consumed’, and contemporary melodic techno cuts from the likes of Cobblestone Jazz, John Tejada and fellow Green artists Roland Klinkenberg and Anton Pieete. Meanwhile, brand new Joris Voorn productions ‘Where Have You Gone? (Part 1)’ and ‘Looks Fake Obviously’ exemplify the harmonic twists and pulsing beats that don’t allow you to take your ears away from this sumptuous mix for a single second.

                          After bursting into the spotlight in 2008 with two world tours and numerous heavyweight productions and remixes, Mumdance took a two-year hiatus after finding himself increasingly disillusioned with the scene and sound with which he had become associated. He returned in 2013 with a new, more self-assured style, releasing on labels such as Rinse, Tectonic and Keysound Recordings while collaborating with other forward-thinking artists such as Logos (with whom he is also set to release the club-oriented Proto project this February) and Spyro. 2014’s anthem ‘Take Time’ with South London’s hot property Novelist was followed by the duo signing to XL Recordings.

                          'Fabriclive 80' opens with previously unheard weightless sonics from the likes of Shapednoise, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and Sculpture, taking a brief detour to early bleep with Sweet Exorcist, before settling into Mite’s ‘Cemetery Séance’. The piercing sounds of Logos’ ‘Glass’ (forthcoming on Mumdance’s Different Circles label) juxtaposes perfectly with Tectonic boss Pinch’s potent ‘Water Bomb’ and forthcoming dubs from Untold and Acre. The middle section of the mix acts as a short production showcase from Mumdance himself; three striking collaborations with Logos feature (‘In Reverse PIV’ is of particular note).

                          The mix enters weightlessness again with tracks from Helm, Wanda Group and Strict Face before Mumdance, Logos & Rabit’s ‘Inside The Catacomb’ acts as a statement of intent for the mix. Two surprise pieces of dancefloor fire emerge next: an exclusive VIP “fabric” treatment of Novelist x Mumdance’s collaboration ‘1 Sec’ and Riko’s version of ‘Take Time’ - an in-demand dub of 2014 in its own right. The final section of the mix jumps back in time to the early 2000’s with ‘Coalition’ from Eastwood & Oddz and Jon E Cash’s ‘Kamikaze’. Mumdance rounds off his Fabriclive mix with some uplifting tracks from the hardcore era that shaped his early musical tastes, by Bass Selective, Fat Controller, Jimmy J & Cru-l-t. The cyclical piano stabs of Ramos & Supreme’s stellar ‘The Journey’ are peaks in a mix that effortlessly summarises a unique musical mind.

                          Fabriclive 78 - Illum Sphere

                          It's easy to trace Ryan Hunn (aka Illum Sphere)'s impact on the Manchester music scene. Hoya:Hoya, the night he started with Jonny Dub back in 2008, quickly became noted for its eclecticism and open-minded booking approach, with artists ranging from The Gaslamp Killer to Ikonika and James T. Cotton. Soon spotted by the keen eyes at fabric, the collective were invited to host Room Three in 2011, and following its immediate success they moved to Room Two, where they now hold their quarterly residency. Illum Sphere's skill at bringing together disparate sounds as a DJ is bolstered by a formidable production talent, which has seen him release on a series of respected labels, including Ninja Tune, Young Turks, 3024, Fat City and Tectonic, whilst his remix credits include Radiohead, Martyn, Kuedo and Zed Bias. Constructed in the comfort of his own home, his FABRICLIVE mix is inspired by the sounds one might hear during his DJ sets in Room Two.

                          "I decided to stick to more electronic-based music, from new wave, dub, techno, acid, etc. In terms of range I think the oldest thing is probably late 70s and the newest thing came out this year." - llum Sphere

                          Kicking off in the 80bpm range, EMAK’s spaced out ‘Sein Und Schein’ (a segment of which appears later as an interlude) makes way for dub echo drenched tracks from Soul Syndicate and Carl Meeks. From there the mix explores the many subtle (and not so subtle) facets of electronic music, from the lo-fi experimentalism of Tapes and Powell to analogue synth-driven jams from Musumeci, Streetwalker and Grauzone. Illum Sphere is effortlessly flexible on tempo to the point where the shifts are barely noticeable, with the mix midway pace subtly ramping up into Das Ding’s technicolour ‘HSTA’. From there, spaced out synth textures of Legowelt and Demdike Stare are contrasted with machine-like grooves from Charles Manier and Propaganda. The exceptional ‘Gershwin’ by Actress shifts into Illum Sphere’s own ‘Bullet’, before Nine Circles’ 1982 track ‘What's There Left’ signs off a mix that is engaging as much as it is unexpected.

                          Fabriclive 75 - Elijah & Skilliam

                            Elijah & Skilliam are arguably the foremost ambassadors of grime. Having taken a scrupulous and avant-garde approach to the genre’s output, they have helped raise it to the forefront of the electronic music landscape. Their celebrated Rinse FM show has been representing the best of the scene for 5+ years. Their club nights were some of the first to focus on the talents of the producers, when at the time parties were more about the MCs. Officially returning with a bang last year, their FABRICLIVE residency has brought grime back to the clubs in a big way.

                            “The mix doesn't necessarily represent how we would play in the club, but it does feature many of the people that you would hear and see playing at a Butterz night at fabric. It was more focused on making a great mix. If you want to hear how we play in a club, come to fabric.” - Elijah & Skilliam

                            Brushing off pressure to represent the whole of the scene, Elijah & Skilliam have created something that is current, but not necessarily based on the big tracks of recent times. And with less than a third of the tracks at the typical 140bpm grime tempo, the mix showcases just how wide their sets can go without diluting their identity and their sound. The mix is peppered with exclusive studio collaborations and VIPs. Royal-T and Swindle built the Intro and Outro from scratch, adding live audio cuts from previous fabric parties; while MCs Newham Generals provided a couple of special versions – a grime fan’s equivalent of spending a couple of hundred on a rare record according to Elijah. Club favourites ‘Twinkle’ by Swindle & Silkie, Darq E Freaker’s ‘666 Sauna’ and Swindle’s P-Funk-esque studio jam ‘Good Stay Bad’ are among a host of tracks that remained unreleased.

                            Fabriclive 74 - Jack Beats

                              It’s fair to say that Jack Beats have a longstanding relationship with fabric, and it’s one that’s infiltrated a long and hugely successful career for the duo, perhaps better known as Niall Dailly and Ben Geffin. Even before they formed - just as the blog scene exploded, taking the pair on a heady ride of fidget house and bass-heavy beats - Dailly and Geffin were winning accolades through their former lives as DJ Plus One of the Scratch Perverts and Beni G of The Mixologists respectively. Widely recognized as some of the most technically gifted DJs around - Dailly winning the DMC World Championships as proof - Jack Beats have refused to stand still, their sound remaining one step ahead of the curve, and with one resident’s foot firmly placed in fabric throughout. With Niall in Scotland and Ben in London, their stories are the same as any other 90s kid: an insatiable appetite for a melting-pot of music, spearheaded by the early rave scene, ultimately led them both to turntablism. Using DJ competitions to showcase their skills and fuel bookings, it wasn’t long before Dailly and Geffin became Jack Beats, initially throwing themselves into the blog culture ’du jour’: remixing. Tackling pop behemoths from Beyoncé to Example with their own very unique brand of bouncy bass, Jack Beats have come a long way since, releasing on Cheap Thrills and Sony / Colombia, before settling at their current home, Skrillex’s OWSLA. It’s been a jam-packed ride, and one that Jack Beats only see continuing as they give you just a taste of what to expect in 2014 with their FABRICLIVE 74 MIX.

                              As Jack Beats attest, FABRICLIVE 74 is a 70 minute snapshot of their 2014 sonic landscape. Weaving from the freshest producers such as Taiku & Nulight featuring AC Slater ‘Doing It’ and Luxury ‘J.A.W.S.’ through to Duke Dumont on ‘Street Walker’, Jack Beats always keep the energy high and the pace fast with big, crunchy basslines, peppered through with recent and upfront tracks. There aren’t many DJs who can swing from the house leanings of Breach and Dusky through to HARD’s Destructo, but Jack Beats do it with ease, gluing the mix together with their own takes on Rudimental, A-Trak and Circus boss, Flux Pavilion, as well as their own upfront cuts on mix opener ‘Beatbox’ and ‘Ill Shit’. Technically skilled with an undeniable ear for what works, Jack Beats prove time and time again why they consistently remain a major player in dance music, and one of our strongest ever UK music exports.

                              Fabriclive 73 - Pangaea

                                With the last few years having inarguably paid witness to the most transitional, and potentially divisive period in the history of the UK's much fawned-­over hardcore continuum, Kevin McAuley has become a voice synonymous with a singular brand of off-­kilter, sub-­heavy dance music. Under the name Pangaea, he has released on some of the most reputable labels to emerge in recent times, as well as the Hessle Audio imprint that he helms alongside long-­time friends, and fellow FABRICLIVE contributors, Pearson Sound and Ben UFO. As a trio they've been at the forefront of a scene that's accelerated at an unprecedented rate as of late, making their enviable ability to stay ahead of the curve all the more impressive with a roster that boasts the indisputable talents of James Blake, Peverelist, Blawan and more.

                                Having grown up in a rural area of the South West of England, it was a move to Leeds that was to see McAuley's early interest in music develop into something far more substantial, becoming engrossed in the emergent sounds of dubstep and co-­founding the city's first ever night to be dedicated to the genre.

                                In 2007 he helped establish the Hessle Audio label as a means with which to draw together original and boundary-­pushing music that wasn't being represented elsewhere, and after appearing as the imprint's sophomore release he has gone on to craft eight more critically acclaimed EPs, including appearances for the esteemed Hotflush and Hemlock Recordings, as well as his own more recent Hadal series.

                                It's here, four years after his first appearance in fabric's third room, that he steps up to deliver a mix that's as visceral as we've come to expect from the prodigious youngster, and one that exemplifies the fiercely unique approach he's taken towards his work thus far.

                                With his productions having traditionally shared an affiliation with the darker end of the sonic spectrum, it comes as no surprise to find the confrontational palettes of Psyk and Shifted sitting alongside the gauzy textures of Lee Gamble and distressed junglism of Pev & Kowton, over the course of a compelling 76 minutes

                                Fabriclive 67 - Ben UFO

                                In a world where illegal downloads, cracked software and sync buttons are helping to create swarms of young DJs with bottomless libraries of digital music they’re vaguely familiar with, you might question the role and relevance of the specialist DJ in today’s musical landscape. Not everyone possesses the talent, care and breadth of taste required to project their personality through other people’s records, or to create narratives which transcend dancefloors; Ben UFO is someone who does. Over the years Ben has increased in confidence and proficiency, and in devoting himself to the pursuit of highlighting shared characteristics of 2-step garage, dubstep, classic house and techno, he has learned to expertly navigate and bridge tempos and genres in as natural a fashion as possible, allowing tracks from disparate areas to co-exist and function comfortably alongside one another to form a unique and well-defined aesthetic.

                                In 2007, after finishing university, alongside David Kennedy (Pearson Sound) and Kevin McAuley (Pangaea), he started Hessle Audio. The label was formed with the idea of providing a platform for the release of Pangaea and Pearson Sound’s own records, but its scope quickly expanded, resulting in the release of genre-defying records by Objekt, Untold, Cosmin TRG, James Blake, Blawan and more. In May 2009 they started their residency at Fabric, which has been ongoing ever since. The club night reflects what they do as a record label and as DJs, showcasing expansive, varied lineups and drawing connections between artists as diverse as Kassem Mosse, Kode 9, Livity Sound and Randall.

                                The primary purpose of this Fabriclive release is to represent exactly what Ben does as a DJ, and to give him the opportunity to showcase the different aspects of the music that he stands for. Accordingly, it is not a straightforward mix of house, bass music or techno; neither is it filled with exclusives or unreleased material. It is an indicator of where we are at and where we have come from, and a statement of intent. It is a considered and highly textured mix consisting of 28 tracks and traversing multiple styles.

                                Emerging from the moody introversion of Mix Mup’s “Before (Dub),” the mix starts in earnest with an aggressively distorted cut from Delroy Edwards, which bleeds into the off-kilter rhythms and sub-bass intensity of an exclusive from Pev & Kowton. From there we’re thrown into the bizarre future-tribal world of DJ Sotofett remixing Tim ‘Love’ Lee’s “The Tortoise” and onwards through tracks and decades, as Chicago Skyway’s “It’s OK” combines with K-Hand, Fluxion, Jam City, Pearson Sound and Mr. Fingers. There are truly inspired transitions here: the acid tones of “Zug Island” by Kyle Hall & Kero drip languidly over Shackleton vs Kasai Allstars’ “Mukuba Special”; the shattered percussion of A Made Up Sound’s “Malfunction” is pulled into line by the loop-driven techno of Grain’s “Untitled”; the dissonant bassline drone of Pangaea’s “Release” swallows up and consumes whole the kick-drum barrage which defines Blawan’s “And Both His Sons.”

                                With Hessle Audio releases represented heavily alongside labels such as L.I.E.S., Hinge Finger, Night Slugs, Hemlock and Eglo, there are clear indications of a tightly-knit community working collectively to push things forward. Ben is central to this movement, and with this mix he manages to communicate not just who he is and what he does, but ultimately where we are at.

                                Fabriclive 64 - Oneman

                                  There are DJs that are heavily tied to styles, people who go on to become figures synonymous with a certain sound or a particular approach to mixing; and then there are DJ’s DJs - a different breed of people who manage to make the whole process of blending records from disparate genres look (and sound) seamless. Often, it’s not just about beat matching perfectly, it’s as much about capturing a mood and evolving it through your record selections as it is locking on to a consistent rhythm and that’s something that Streatham bred DJ, Steve Bishop, has proven himself to be mightily adept at over the years. As much as his sets under the Oneman moniker may have started turning heads by melding old school UK garage with DMZ style dubstep, he’s proven through his regular presence on London institution Rinse FM that he can do so much more than just marry classics with current beats.

                                  Oneman has rightly become an essential part of the station’s roster, broadcasting his own agenda for two hours every Sunday night. He’s already known for his flawless mixing, his impeccable selection and his old meets new school mergers - that’s why he’s already a lot of people’s favourite DJ - but his FABRICLIVE mix manages to cement all of the above in an incredibly understated way. The selection bounds through choice cuts from the last couple of years by Joy Orbison, Fis-T, SBTRKT, Grievous Angel and Mosca to current productions from Pearson Sound, Lando Kal, Teeth and Thefft, all the time peppered by garage classics from Nu Birth, Steve Gurley, Tuff Jam and Youngstar.

                                  Fabriclive 63 - Digital Soundboy Soundsystem

                                  Launched in 2005 by original ‘90s Jungle pioneer, Shy FX, Digital Soundboy quickly established itself as one of the UK’s most exciting labels, its quality over quantity ethos making it a standard bearer for the UK’s world leading bass music scene. With a back catalogue that includes some of the biggest club hits of the past ten years, including tracks from Skream, Benga, Redlight and Jess Mills, and a reputation for throwing the biggest parties around, Digital Soundboy’s position in dance history is assured. Today the label’s roster of Shy FX, Breakage, B.Traits, Youngman, Dismantle and Stamina MC are all successful artists in their own right, but first and foremost Digital Soundboy remains a family, one that plays, parties and produces together and together continues to break new ground.

                                  The first officially released Digital Soundboy mix, 'Fabriclive 63' perfectly captures the carnival spirit of the label and its parties. From drum n’ bass to dubstep, dancehall to garage, via excursions into house and beyond 'Fabriclive 63' showcases the Digital Soundboy crew’s ability to bring together myriad genres and styles in the freshest way possible and create a pure party-starting selection. Mixed by Shy FX, B.Traits and Breakage, each separately choosing their favourite tracks before working on the mix together in the Digital Soundboy studio, 'Fabriclive 63' features a mix of exclusive dubs and upcoming releases from the Digital Soundboy family; tracks such as Zed Bias’ ‘Heavy Water Riddim’ and Dismantle’s ‘Warp’, classic anthems like Shy FX’s ‘Original Nuttah’, and the unexpected such as MANDY vs Booka Shade ‘Body Language’. An inspired selection that will put a smile on many a face and a bounce in your step, 'Fabriclive 63' ducks and weaves its way across the musical spectrum, and like the label itself, refuses to be pigeonholed.

                                  With over 20 years of DJing and more than 20,000 records in his vinyl collection, one of the world’s most talented house heroes, DJ Sneak, lends his tune selection, deck wizardry and pure love of house music to fabric 62. Born Carlos Sosa in Puerto Rico, Sneak was raised to the rhythms of salsa music, before moving to Chicago in 1983, and becoming captivated by the sounds of jazz, funk, soul, disco and of course house music. Originally a graffiti artist, Sneak soon became involved in selling music, starting his own label Defiant and working in the city’s infamous Gramophone record store, where he met artists and industry players, all the while developing his unmistakable jacking style. Releases on house music institutions such as Strictly Rhythm, Classic and Relief, as well as his burgeoning DJ reputation, led to Sneak’s international career blossoming in the 90s and early 00s, with tracks such as ‘You Can’t Hide From Your Bud’ and ‘Fix My Sink’ widely attributed classic status. Now heading up three of his own labels (Magnetic, Oomph and Sneak’s Classics), Sneak remains as relevant as ever, with artists from Ricardo Villalobos to Riva Starr queuing up to DJ and produce in collaboration with the house music legend.

                                  Sneak’s mix is ripe with carefully selected contemporary house nuggets with echoes of Chicago and the jacking house sound he loves, drizzled with elements of techno and dusted with overtones of big band swing, mixed to perfection. Sneak performed and recorded the mix live without the use of any computers, taking a transatlantic trip to bring together bumping Chicago grooves with muscular European techno.

                                  Philippa says: He eats steak for breakfast and plays funky house records at night; it's the one and only DJ Sneak, with an 18 track mix CD for Fabric.

                                  Looking back on the myriad of ways that the genre now known quite loosely as ‘bass music’ has mutated, one of the key figures in its evolution would have to be Bristol’s Rob Ellis, better known simply as Pinch. His fascination with what the outer limits of the dub sound can achieve has made him a distinct figure within the fluid group of like-minded dubstep musicians that defined the so-called Bristol sound.

                                  In 2003, a Kode9 set became the stepping-stone that was his initial contact with dubstep at London’s seminal FWD>>. This inspired him to start the first pure dubstep night outside of FWD>>, Subloaded, in his hometown of Bristol. With the city’s love of dub and long musical lineage, plus Pinch’s dedication to the importance of the actual sound, it quickly formed a dedicated community and became a yardstick by which other nascent events were measured. This had all been driven by a key moment in his own musical evolution which as he explains, “I lost interest in D&B and started buying minimal Basic Channel style techno, garage, grime and electronica instead - trying to mix them up together,” pre-empting the dominant sound of 4/4 dub-techno embraced by today’s crop of young producers, like Hessle Audio, who regularly cite the Bristol sound as a big influence.

                                  His Fabriclive offering comes hot on the heels of mixes from Pearson Sound and an artist with whom he’s just recently released a collaborative album on Honest Jon’s, Shackleton. These are all producers who work in a similar vein, that is, impeccable attention to sound detail, continual experimentation with rhythm whilst always maintaining a definitive ‘sound’ which can be traced throughout all their productions.

                                  "I am a supporter of the sound of vinyl and the cultural associations I make with this format so it was important to me - even if I do ultimately end up abandoning my beloved format one day - to stick by my guns and record the mix like this. I also made the whole mix start and finish in the same spot - meaning that the entire DJ mix can work as a loop if you put it on repeat. I really like the idea of certain kinds of music existing in its own infinite context and setting up the mix to loop like that was playing entirely into that idea." - Pinch

                                  Jamie Jones has become a household name and created an accessible brand for a new generation of dance music fans with his Hot Natured guise and Hot Creations label. His Fabric compilation comes as he rides the crest of a tidal wave of popularity for him and his Crosstown Rebels and Visionquest crew that are forming a new cluster of stars. Original and addictive, his timeless journey is typically charged with energetic loopy grooves, defining his personal influences and showcasing exclusive material from his army of talent.

                                  The mix starts with Hot Natured ‘Time Intro’, giving a nod to the recent Hot Natured smash single ‘Forward Motion’ and offering a hint of Jamie’s future projects with Ali Love and Kenny Glasgow of Art Department fame, before diving headfirst into a funk electro remix of the classic Sebastian Tellier ‘La Ritournelle’ reworked by pop’s newest heroes Metronomy. There’s not much room to exhale from there forward with Jamie’s own special reedits of Coat Of Arms and Karen Pollock, as well as some defining staples from his heart-winning DJ sets such as Cajmere featuring Jamie Principle ‘God Sent’ and Felix Da Housecat ‘Madame Hollywood’, an essential track from the early moments of his career. What sets this mix apart is an acute attention to the energy in the ride. Jamie Jones tackles dance music as a rock or pop star would, making it accessible and playing with the frequencies to continually keep it enjoyable.


                                  Hot on the heels of his well-received "Impermanence" artist album, the French techno figurehead Agoria presents one of the most diverse and meticulous sets to hit the fabric series to date. Jazz greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sun Ra and Tony Allen drift almost imperceptibly into and out of house and techno from the likes of Carl Craig, Cottam, and of course Agoria himself. Layers and snippets of each track are interwoven throughout the duration, making "Fabric 57" as much an orchestral composition as it is a DJ mix.

                                  Fabriclive 53 - Drop The Lime

                                    Pigeonholes are gracefully obliterated, and Drop The Lime's signature all-in-the-box DJing style encompassed, on the thrilling, adventurous "Fabriclive 53". As with all DTL mixes, the most unlikely beats and artists suddenly make perfect sense alongside one another: the raw 303s of Maurice introduce acid to Untold's future bump, Drop The Lime's own housey summer hit "Sex Sax" steps and twirls to the swing of Bill Haley & His Comets, and the glittery synth pop of Little Jinder fades into the melodic grace of Reso's dubbed-out ambience. Filled with teasings of Drop The Lime's newest work, and of course his unmistakable vocals, overall the mix is every bit as rare and passionate - and unpredictable - as the charismatic artist himself.

                                    Various Artists

                                    Fabriclive 48 - Filthy Dukes

                                      Not so much crossing boundaries as erasing them completely, coupling pulsating kick drums, with dreamy melodies, the Dukes meld song-writing sensibilities with an ability to turn a dancefloor upside down. Throw down your preconceptions and discard your notions of the sounds of a fabric main room - this is the Filthy Dukes, and this is how they Kill 'Em All. The mix ducks and dives through styles and sounds without a moment's respite – setting the pace from the off with their own gloriously synth-laden stomper "This Rhythm", they move through "Beat The Clock" by the legendary Sparks, Aeroplane's disgustingly brilliant Italo remix of Sebastian Tellier – straight out the book of Daft Punk, and even manage to drift in and out of Aphex Twin's classic "Windowlicker" before the close.
