Sandwell District, Fabric 69

[Fabric] “Sandwell District is dead” — except when they’re not. Since their watershed moment a couple years ago — which is tough to define, but probably around Feed-Forward — Sandwell District has come to embody much more than just a label. The notion of a collective à la Basic Channel seems particularly apropos, as the […]

Ben UFO, Fabriclive 67

Ben Klock, Fabric 66

Levon Vincent, Fabric 63

Little White Earbuds Interviews JD Twitch

Martyn, Fabric 50

We all know about the current state of mix CDs. Fabric, however, stands strong in the face of adversity with milestone release number 50. Fabric has cemented its position as one of the mix CD series of all time, not only for its longevity but for containing classics like editions 13 (Michael Mayer), 36 (Ricardo Villalobos) and 39 (Robert Hood), just to name a few. How the London club would celebrate release number 50 was a source of much speculation, and their choice of Martyn was both an inspired and daring one. Shaking up the rigid 4/4 that has defined pretty much every Fabric CD, Martyn’s dubstep sensibilities and love for techno breathe fresh air into a series that has struggled to maintain its cutting edge cachet.

Win 2 Tickets to FABRIC 50: Martyn Launch Party

A club like Fabric doesn’t hit a milestone without putting on a great party, and the occasion of the club’s 50th mix, put together by Martyn, is another classic example. LWE has snagged a copy of the comp and two tickets to the gig, which features Martyn, Pépé Bradock, Kode 9, and Actress in Room […]

Stream a mix by House of House

If you loved “Rushing to Paradise” by House of House as much as we did, you’re probably clamoring to hear a DJ set from these rising stars.

Thankfully, Fabric is teaming up with LWE to share the wealth and let the rest of us in on the duo’s eclectic tastes.

Stream a Ricardo Villalobos mix

Want 2 free tickets to Fabric this Saturday?

Photo by Nina Jan Beier and Marie Jan Lund I have to admit, I’m plainly jealous of my British readers, or at least the ones within reasonable distance from Fabric. Although the 26th is just another Saturday night at the London superclub, the line-up (as usual) has me drooling like Pavlovian raver. Even better, I’m […]
