Helena Hauff

Living With Ladybirds

    German DJ Helena Hauff and ‘Return to Disorder’ label owner was the first female to be named BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix of the year in 2017. Helena’s focus has always been productions and DJing making her characteristic gnashing electro, acidic techno and chugging EBM tunes and sets her focus ahead of the limelight and fame that so many court. Her background studies in fine art, maths, physics and acoustics means her creative flair is perfectly expressed through the coaxing of weighty club sounds from her machines. With ‘Living With Ladybirds’ Hauff lays down four EBM-infused tracks recorded in her method of using strictly analogue equipment. There’s the eccentric electro of ‘Jonas’, the travelling melody behind ‘Your Turn To Fly’, the stripped down pulsing techno of ‘Touching Plastic’ and the rich rolling acid techno of ‘Pinch’.

    "Black Market EP" is DJ Bone’s first output after a long production hiatus. A widely-respected DJ, producer, and  turntablist of the 90’s and 00’s; not to mention an early pioneer of the podcast format with his legendary 'DJ Bone Attacks' informing a whole generation of techno lovers which would become devote DJ Bone fans. Like Jeff Mills, Carl Cox and DJ Rush, he pioneered the use of three decks mixing techno and full throttle.

    Drawing on the full 4/4 force of Detroit techno, ‘Rising’, ‘Fulmination’ and ‘In Solution’ charge with his renewed passion - bursting with heavenly strings, rippling synths, moody pads and energetic vocal stabs. ‘Power Of The Three’ is a rolling DnB workout, proving Bone’s skills reach all corners of the dancefloor. 

    A true pioneer dedicated to the art of techno, he’s the perfect fit for a new label from a legendary club like fabric, pointing both to the birthplace of the genre and ahead to its future. Recommended.

    Matt says: Stone cold Detroit legend DJ Bone back with four brand new tracks after a seemingly endless hiatus. Exactly what you want from Bone - high tech, machine code rhythms, expansive techno that urges you to both dream and dance. There's even a cheeky DnB number thrown in. You know what to do!

    Eris Drew & Octo Octa

    Day After A Night With U / Stars & Water

    Fabric launches a new offshoot: Fabric Originals. The imprint aims to release special projects from the artists that form the present and future of boundary pushing club music globally in single, EP, album and compilation form. To launch the label a new split 12” from hi-NRG pioneers Eris Drew & Octo Octa is unveiled. Eris Drew draws on elements of 90s big beat with a propulsive twist, adding chest-rattling bass notes to anchor the track’s eyes-down 4/4 rhythm. Created in reaction to this dancefloor wonder, Octo Octa’s "Stars & Water" takes on a much more commanding tone finding cues from a classic house sound and employing deft polyrhythms to build progressive energy. As you'd expect from the label's ethos and the artists involved - it's progressive, inovative; yet retains that magical infectious quality required for modern club music hits. We're feelin' it!
