    Wonderland / Running

      “I will never stop saying this: fabric means the world to me. After being entrusted to regularly warm up Room 1 at the very twilight of my career, I was offered the chance by our dearly departed brother Shaun Roberts to mix the FABRICLIVE CD in 2012, long before a soul knew of my existence as an artist. It propelled me into the clubbing orbit as a DJ who was able to lean on leftfield sounds; the kind of opportunity that continues to make my head spin. After the release of my debut album ‘Drone Logic’, in 2014 the club asked me to curate my own night, specifying that it cover all corners of my musical sky. I called it Divided Love.

      “Today I am gassed to watch as another circle completes itself, ten years on, as Divided Love returns to fabric and, alongside it, a 12” released on fabric Originals. The two-tracker, as with every club record I ever make in fact, has Room 1 coursing through its veins. I know that room like the back of my hand and this is how the room sounds in my skull.” - Daniel Avery

      The second release by fabric Originals for fabric’s 25 year anniversary celebrations.

      Sama’ Abdulhadi Fabric Presents Sama’ Abdulhadi

        Sama’ Abdulhadi’s rise as one of the first DJs to emerge internationally from Palestine can be traced back to Beirut, where she immersed herself in the burgeoning local techno scene. Her 2018 Boiler Room in Palestine set a new bar for high octane DJ sets.

        On this mix, Sama’s techno collaboration with musician-performer Walaa Sbait on lead track ‘Well Fee’ stands out with its Arabic love-lament vocal. Acid Arab’s ‘Laba Staifia (Ammar 808 Remix)’ rounds off the comp - another notable delivery from the French-Algerian electronic collective.

        Contributing artists from East to West, from established to up-and-coming producers, cover melodic, trance and techno genres, making this one of the most all-compassing deliveries to the historic series.

          Globally respected DJ, producer, trUst label boss and the queer Body Movements festival founder Saoirse has delivered a shapeshifting compilation defying the concept of time as deep house morphs into moody techno, trippy grooves effortlessly transition into pumping bass and unearthed gems are seamlessly stitched with brand new, exclusive tracks from long-time collaborator Shanti Celeste and Galdors imprint founder Junes to deliver a cohesive and cosmic piece. Soirse’s exclusive tech-house banger ‘RM 1’ single is dedicated to the countless hours the Dublin-born raver has spent in that iconic fabric room behind and infront of the decks.

          One More City

            Comprised of Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi, Tel Aviv based Red Axes are informed by post-punk, new wave, and a plethora of club sounds old and new – their understanding of the connection between post punk and dance comes via their beloved Factory records. Hedonistic, mischievous and bristling with rock’n’roll energy. ‘One More City’ is the second album to come out on fabric Records and features artists like A.Lonzo, Clams, Autarkic, Adi Scotheque & JANSET, Cole Alexander, and Justin Strauss.

            Fabric Presents Helena Hauff

              The Hamburg-born producer and DJ Helena Hauff has been revolutionising the sound of techno and electro since her emergence on the scene at the turn of the 2010s. Her forward-thinking style of production and mixing that relies on both genres’ analogue sounds has helped to inform a wildly popular subset of selectors that prefer their sonics hard-edged, hypnotic, and wildly exhilarating. Her fabric mix comp follows these rules – taking in techno, electro and industrial-edged electronica, from the early 90s like D-Breeze’s Crazy For Love with its cool Autechre remix to hot producers on the scene like Magda Rot’s exclusive ‘Alter Simus’. Her 2023 touring covers the worldwide festival circuit. Press shots for this campaign were directed, styled and shot by Riya Hollings with the release’s dark futurism perfectly captured and perfect for music, fashion, and lifestyle press.

              Marcel Dettmann

              Electric Drive

                Following on from the release of his first album in 10 years in 2022, the expansive ‘Fear Of Programming’, Berlin techno icon Marcel Dettmann today returns to announce a brand new EP, ‘Electric Drive’. His first release via fabric Originals, the flagship label from global club entity fabric.

                A full-bodied cut of driving, digitised techno, ‘Electric Drive’ thrives on intensity from the outset. Pairing a hypnotic yet truly dynamic synth centrepiece with a hard-hitting, no nonsense percussive line, the track strips Dettmann’s signature sound to its raw elements - presenting an incendiary DJ tool that can ignite the potency of any set by force.

                After spanning a host of genres within ‘Fear Of Programming’, Marcel Dettmann’s ‘Electric Drive’ finds one of techno’s most revered names returning to pure dancefloor ferocity. A glimpse of things to come, the project’s title track ensures that those tuned in to the more dynamic sounds of Berlin techno are satiated with a new soundtrack for late nights and early mornings from one of the sound’s most inventive artists.

                The four track EP promises to build on the foundations of a classic sound of techno, taking a no holds barred approach to powerful, explosive electronic music.

                LCY

                He Hymns

                  LCY’s ‘He Hymns’ EP is a dystopian reimagination of club music. Each track within the project takes inspiration from elements of beloved genres of club music and metamorphoses them into works of dancefloor experiments that alter the perception of what music built for sound systems can be.

                  Simultaneously warm and unrelentingly intense, ‘He Hymns’ perfectly sets the stall for LCY’s vision for the club; transporting the listener to an alternate future in which the driving heart of electronic music sits unapologetically at the fore.

                  ‘He Hymns’ is dynamic, confounding club music that is still inherently propulsive - ready to lift the curtain on a new level of invention within the electronic space.

                    Acclaimed producer, DJ and community leader, TYGAPAW is one of the contemporary guiding lights of the New York club scene, and the first artist to release an album on fabric Originals, the new flagship label from fabric. Creating multiple spaces for the city’s LGBTQ+ community to thrive within nightlife culture, their 2020 debut album, ‘Get Free’, acted as a rallying cry to dismantle patriarchy, racism and queerphobia. Now TYGAPAW brings a brand-new album, ‘love has never been a popular movement.’, to our ears. Named after the searing words of black activist James Baldwin, it is a striking collection of techno tracks featuring guest vocals from LSDXOXO and George Riley.

                    Fabric Presents Chaos In The CBD

                      After a year of sold-out tours, thousands of vinyl sales on their imprint In Dust We Trust, and their fifth Boiler Room set, New Zealand siblings Chaos In The CBD round off a decade-spanning career with a ‘fabric presents’ mix. The duo’s grasp of house music history is showcased as they create a slick and nostalgic journey through the genre’s hidden gems – making it fabric’s most challenging licensing project to date, with much of the music available digitally for the first time. Louis and Ben see the project as an ode to those underappreciated tunes that made a huge impact on them. Their exclusive ‘Higher Elevation’ blends in with the rest as an everlasting house cut with its delicate dreamy keys, fluffy bass and a groovy loop. The highlight-heavy comp boasts a personable album cover shot in Egypt, adding an extra layer of individuality to this stand out release.

                        Within the last couple of years, the UK has seen a paradigm shift in the electrifying sounds permeating from its clubs that have seen a ripple effect worldwide, calling to mind the revolution ignited by pioneers of the 1990s.

                        Adopting a no-holds barred attitude to their high octane output in their respective styles, SHERELLE and I. JORDAN have acted as two of the forebearers of the UK scene; releasing music that maximises emotion and maximises euphorian dancefloors globally.

                        Now the duo come together to announce their first collaborative release, ‘M1, M3’ /‘GETOUTOFMYMIND’, on fabric Originals, the flagship label from world-renowned club entity fabric.

                        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.

                              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.

                                The mix was recorded at the end of 2020 as the planet was struggling with the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Danilo Plessow, known best for his work as Motor City Drum Ensemble, inserts statements from friends about the meaning of the music to people in these times, reaching globally for inspiration. He plays with a range of eras, locations and genres with an emphasis on instrumentation. The double vinyl format with download card features eleven full length tracks taken from the compilation. It highlights the rarer cuts across the 70s, 80s and 90s many of which have never before been digitally released. It includes ‘Nightfall’ – Danilo’s exclusive composition with jazz instrumentalists Francesco Geminiani and Peter Schlamb and ‘Taxi Mutant’ by Cabaret Voltaire that has been cut to vinyl for the first time here.

                                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.

                                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.

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 99: DJ Q

                                          A prolific artist, DJ Q and his speedy, bassline sound first gained notoriety via his 2007 smash hit ‘U Wot’. This secured him a six year stint as a DJ on BBC Radio 1Xtra. He has over one hundred productions and remixes under his belt. Album releases include his solo work - ‘Ineffable’, his collaborative ‘UKG’ which dropped in 2017 as one third of outfit TQD, followed by ‘All Night’ out this year.

                                          Bar one track, ‘FABRICLIVE 99’ contains all previously unreleased music and features 15 of his own productions alongside cuts from Todd Edwards, TQD, Royal-T, Flava D, Jack Junior, Swindle and others.

                                          Moving between bassline, UK garage, bumping house and beyond, Q’s mix captures the next-generation soundtrack from the Huddersfield-born DJ and producer.

                                          Fabriclive 92 - Preditah

                                            Preditah steps up for ‘FABRICLIVE 92’, his debut mix album, featuring exclusive material from himself, plus DJ Q, and C4, alongside tracks and remixes from Skepta, Wiley, Joker, Swindle, Flava D, Shorty and more.

                                            The 32 track mix is the sound of Preditah (aka Nathan Gerald) helming the rave, mixing up grime, UK house and garage with all the passion of someone who lives and breathes dance music.

                                            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.

                                              Fabric 85 - Baby Ford

                                                Baby Ford is one of a few DJs and producers whose name truly encapsulates the word: legend. As a vanguard of the acid house movement, the Bolton born artist has continuously demonstrated a style and an approach to his craft that’s widely revered by electronic music connoisseurs the world over. The release of the influential ‘Oochy Koochy’ 12” back in 1988 might have given the industry their first taste of his production, but Ford’s gone on to steadily amass a vast catalogue of music that straddles every conceivable crevice of the house and techno genres in the years since.

                                                To date he’s released four studio albums and a plethora of solo and collaborative efforts – including Minimal Man and his esteemed studio partnership with Thomas Melchior as Soul Capsule – on iconic imprints such as Rhythm King, Force Inc. and Rephlex, as well as his own labels Ifach, Trelik and Pal SL. Over the 27 years since his defining debut (and 10 years since he first played here at fabric) Ford has certainly maintained a stratospheric standard, which permeates the DNA of his long awaited fabric 85 mix.

                                                “The mix was recorded at the Ifach studio right here in London. I borrowed an E&S DJR400 rotary mixer from a friend and then I just picked a bunch of my favourite records - some were new tracks, some in-house productions and some classics. Then I pressed record and went for a take; a ‘good luck studio’ type of vibe with me trying to capture the moment in the mix.” – Baby Ford

                                                What Ford crafts is a largely unhurried mix of cultish house grooves and exceptional contemporary techno. A rare illustration of the man’s vast experience as a DJ, the 15 track mix perfectly captures his dancefloor dynamic as he interweaves tracks old and new, twisting classics like Pal Joey’s ‘Spend The Night’ and Dimbiman’s ‘Lava’ around epochal modern cuts like Joy Orbison’s ‘Ellipsis’ and Alex Celler’s ‘Haz’. Simultaneously, Ford finds the space to flaunt the quality and design of his own material, opening the mix with his Ifach Collective collaboration, ‘Carpet’ and concluding with his as yet unreleased ‘NYO15’.

                                                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.

                                                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.

                                                Various Artists

                                                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 77 - Erol Alkan

                                                  London born and bred, Alkan has spent the last two decades building up a reputation as a sonic innovator. From genre-spanning sets at his own legendary Trash club night to regular appearances at Bugged Out, via production credits including Late Of The Pier and Kindness and remixes for the likes of Metronomy, Tame Impala and Justice, his inimitable brand of mutant techno electro and disco has soundtracked a generation.

                                                  In 2007 Alkan’s burgeoning label Phantasy was born, the springboard for critically acclaimed releases from artists including Daniel Avery, Connan Mockasin and newest signing Ghost Culture, and he last year made his own solo debut with the release of the Illumination EP, drawing praise from the Guardian, Pitchfork, NME and more. With the solo release under his belt the time was right for Erol to step up to the FABRICLIVE mantle.

                                                  "I certainly didn’t want this mix to be a flyer or advert for me as a DJ. I feel this mix is quite specific to fabric as they are all records I would want to play in that environment. Even though I have had the benefit of playing all 3 rooms on a regular basis, this mix feels like it was designed for Room 1. It's influenced by the sight lines from the perspective behind the decks, the lights, the fact that sometimes all you can see are hands reaching into the booth, as well as those behind you dancing alone in the corners." - Erol Alkan

                                                  The 20-track mix opens with Jamie Paton’s driving, rhythmic remix of Maurice & Charles before taking in the off-kilter Latin electrofunk of Carisma, Zongamin’s moody Manfredas rework and Alkan’s own percussive, mechanical remix of The Emperor Machine before delving into the Phantasy back catalogue. Recent offerings from Tom Rowlands (Chemical Brothers) and Ghost Culture appear alongside an exclusive airing of Erol’s propulsive, shimmering ‘Sub Conscious’ and a brand new offering from Cowboy Rhythmbox aka Nathan Gregory Wilkins and Richard X.

                                                  Boot & Tax’s earworm ‘Acido’ refrain segues into Alkan’s own ‘Bang’ and an as yet unreleased Chicago Mix from Michigan’s Todd Osborn while the acid squelch of Claro Intelecto’s ‘Tone’ and supersonic synth euphoria of Daywalker + CF herald a dream sing-out-loud bootleg of Alkan’s ‘A Hold On Love’ and Saint Etienne’s classic Neil Young cover ‘Only Love Can Break Your Heart’. It’s an enthralling mix from a true master of his craft.

                                                  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

                                                        Fabric 70 - Apollonia

                                                          Apollonia - Parisian trio, Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom and Shonky - mix the next instalment of the acclaimed fabric compilation series: fabric 70.

                                                          Vibe brothers in the studio, DJ booth and life, Apollonia have cultivated a creative synergy that sees them connect and work as one artist. Seamlessly weaving through house and techno, their sets are a hypnotic experience; three different minds, bodies and souls intuitively working together, focusing on their shared musical passion: grooves to make your body move.

                                                          Apollonia formed officially in 2012, although the trio have been friends and working together for more than a decade. Originally meeting at Ghenacia’s revered Parisian Sunday morning afterhours, ‘Kwality’, held on a boat in Paris, Dyed and Shonky released their first EPs on Ghenacia’s former imprint, Freak n’ Chic, a label which encouraged new talent to grow and reach from the echelons on France. After the label’s demise in 2011, the logical progression for the Parisians was to start a joint musical venture, and here Apollonia began - both the band aspect and as a record label, to release their own productions and those of carefully chosen contemporaries.

                                                          It’s an unmistakable energy Apollonia have brought to creating fabric 70, which was completed over an intense six-week lock down period in the trio’s Berlin studio earlier this year.

                                                          The mix includes fresh cuts from the likes of The Mole on his new Maybe Tomorrow imprint, Dyed Soundorom’s buzzing re-rub of Daze Maxim’s ‘Farbfilm’ (a recent addition to the Apollonia catalogue), two new Apollonia releases from the boys themselves, made especially for the mix - ‘Trinidad’ - smooth deep house that incorporates the male spoken word and ‘Visa Americain’, a swirling, trippy excursion packed full of multi-layered drums and fizzy sonic effects, both due out on Apollonia later this year.

                                                          Reaching back to the 1990s, the atmospheric pads of Nail’s ‘I’ve Been There’ is included from 1997, the uplifting summery grooves of Mood 2 Swing feat. John Ciafone ‘Ohh’ from 1996 and Callisto’s ‘Need Ur Love’ – a track close to the hearts of Dan, Dyed and Shonky - concludes the mix, standing as a solemn homage to the DJ/producer who sadly recently passed.

                                                          It proved a challenge to license, but they finally pulled it off, and what’s more hold plans to re-press it on the label later this year. True to Apollonia form, fabric 70 is also a work with its share of twists and turns - the deftly talented trio knowing pleasure comes from contrasts and thus the energy levels are constantly manipulated up and down with masterful precision - the energy and intensity of their live performances injected into the mix. Always focused on the groove…

                                                          Fabriclive 69 - Fake Blood

                                                            In true maverick style, Fake Blood, AKA Theo Keating, has forged his own path as a hard-hitting, multi-genre artist with a cult following like no other. He caught the dance music bug from an early age, developing a love of house and techno from listening to pirate stations such as LWR and Kiss. Before long acid house, rare groove, hip hop and early electro seeped in too, shaping the musical melting pot that informs his distinctive sound. Through his various projects and mysterious aliases - Wiseguys to Touché, The Black Ghosts to Fake Blood - he’s consistently proved himself to be one of the UK’s most authentic and exciting producer exports. Over the last six years Fake Blood’s musical career has continued to grow. Having made a huge impact with hits like ‘Mars’ and ‘I Think I Like It’, he then turned his energy to releasing the critically acclaimed debut album ‘Cells’ last year. Having played the world over, from Paris to Tokyo via Sydney and New York, Fake Blood also knows a thing or two when it comes to manipulating a packed dancefloor into a sweaty frenzy; a skill he honed at London’s Fabric.

                                                            "My first visit to Fabric was probably not long after it opened…then I got to play there, and used to play monthly. I always loved it, no matter which room. I've always enjoyed the way that room one is not really that DJ-focused. You're there, only a few feet from the dancefloor, but not up on a pedestal. This means people just get on with dancing rather than getting distracted by some guy at a table. It's like turning the TV off in a room full of people; they'll all turn and start talking to one another." – Fake Blood

                                                            Inspired by the freedom playing at Fabric offers, Fake Blood’s 'Fabriclive 69' mix is similar to a set you would expect to hear him play at the club. But true to form, Fake Blood goes against type, concentrating not just on upfront exclusives for the sake of it but weaving in true personal favourites that conjure warm memories of buying house records and partying hard. Expect to hear classics ‘Jam The Mace’ by House Syndicate alongside new kid on the block Happa, a Fake Blood remix of The Black Ghosts ‘Forgetfulness’ and music from his own record label Blood Music. Never one to sit still for too long, Fake Blood’s 'Fabriclive 69' is an effortless past, present and future musical lesson that just like Keating, will stand up to the test of time.

                                                            "For 'Fabriclive 69' I went for combinations and blends that seemed a little odd on paper, but to me worked really well sonically - to keep it surprising rather than too linear or working towards some kind of crescendo. It's more about regular moments throughout than building to the last tune." - Fake Blood

                                                            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.

                                                            Various Artists

                                                            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.

                                                              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

                                                                Visionquest are a dynamic, charismatic and unstoppable force that have quietly crept up and grasped the horns of dance music in 2011. Comprising of Seth Troxler, Lee Curtiss, Ryan Crosson and Shaun Reeves, four Detroit refugees who each have their solo careers in their own right, together they career through barren terrain and mystical energies in the next episode of the Fabric mix CD series. In Native American cultures, a Visionquest is a spiritual quest associated with new beginnings and revelatory journeys. Meeting as teenagers in the collapsed city of Detroit, these four young creatives embarked on their own voyage together that has brought them to the forefront of the electronic music community. Surrounded by the explosion of techno in their home city, they each connected deeply with its heartbeat. The youngest of the pack, Seth Troxler’s stepfather was himself a DJ and they each began playing and promoting local events. Keen to etch their own mark as DJs and producers in the wider world, they eloped to Berlin and forged successful solo careers, before coming together again to form the Visionquest production collective responsible for crossover remixes such as Tracey Thorn ‘Swimming’ and Kiki ‘Good Voodoo’. In 2011 they formed the Visionquest label that houses a rising circle of talent such as Footprintz, Laura Jones, Tale Of Us and the biggest track of the year from Benoit & Sergio ‘Walk and Talk’.

                                                                The meditative ‘Wasteland’ from Tin Man commences this almost supernatural journey, urging you to relax and sit back for the ride. Throughout the subsequent seventy minutes, Visionquest sweep gently from light atmospherics through into warm grooves and hypnotic basslines, embodying a spellbinding sound that seems suspended in time. The close circle from their early days such as Konrad Black and Toronto’s My Favorite Robot are represented in the mix as well as early heroes such as Green Velvet and Carl Craig. Iconic records such as the Cassius ‘The Sound Of Violence’ and this year’s anthemic Aquarius Heaven ‘Can’t Buy Love’ are sandwiched between esoteric jewels. The end spirals deeper into Visionquest’s dreams and pop infused hallucinations as the auras of the young Montreal duo Footprintz merge with Italian duo Tale Of Us. The playful close on Wildcookie’s ‘The Song With No Ending’ is an archetypal Visionquest twist as they bow out in style.


                                                                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.

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.

Deep, elegant and swelling, the mix transcends listeners to otherworldly soundscapes with a fantastically diverse ambience - at times sunny and bright, other times wild and mystifying, and always keeping a psychedelic and cinematic feel throughout. Featuring the off-beat spontaneity of dOP, the Latin infused bounce of Matias Aguayo, the percussive retreats of Bodycode - and plenty of hidden gems in-between - "Fabric51" is a joy of a listen, a daydream-fuelling hideaway where each track is crammed with as many soul-fuelled moments and intricate charms as the next.

This wiry 24 year old Sheffield lad has bags of personality whatever side of the decks he's on, a trait which effortlessly transmits into his DJ sets. This mix is unapologetically loud, brash but most of all fun. Toddla bounces through styles in the blink of an eye, from the bashy dancehall re-lick of Duffy's "Stepping Stone" to the brief blaze of firing drum & bass from Clipz to his Fish Go Deep / Geeneus / Zinc medley to slices of funky through to some exclusive slabs of dubstep, then onto grime and 2-step – it's breathless, it's reckless and it's utterly brilliant.

                                                                        One of Freq Nasty's recent collaborations was with Switch and Santogold on "Creator", so he's obviously not got stuck in a strictly nu-skool breaks rut. Instead he's spiced up his sound (and this mix) with electro and dubstep (along with hip hop and dub) to keep things fresh. So as well as Madox, Backdraft, The Beat Monkeys and Tayo, this CD includes tracks by ZTT, Buraka Som Sistema, Radioclit, TRG, Lee 'Scratch' Perry Vs. The Moody Boyz and KRS One.
