Out 16th June, fabric Records
Deetron will launch fabric 76 at fabric on Saturday 28th June, alongside
Craig Richards, Redshape (Live), Will Saul, Terry Francis & Slam.

Swiss DJ and producer Sam Geiser aka Deetron has mixed the latest instalment of fabric’s long running series, due for release on June 16th.  It comes at a time when the house and techno specialist is riding high off the success of recent full-length album, Music Over Matter.

Deetron was born, raised and is still based in the city of Bern in Switzerland, and from there he has made an international name for himself as a producer of sleek, well honed house and techno with a classicist bent. Releasing most often on Music Man, the Belgian label with which he has a close relationship, his first release came as far back as 1997 as part of a compilation on Axodya records.
Growing up with a jazz loving, professional classical musician father and a piano teaching mother, it’s no wonder Deetron’s productions have a certain artistry and musicality that evades most others. As an equally dexterous DJ known for his expressive three deck sets, much of his musical knowledge came from running a record shop in the 1990s. A debut fabric gig came in 2006 and Deetron now reports, many gigs later, that he feels very much at home playing room one of the club.
Says Deetron on fabric 76, which was mixed using both vinyl and digital sources… “I basically followed the pleasure principle when approaching the mix. I started to pick my favourite pieces of dance music regardless of age or sub-genre and didn’t really begin to structure the mix until all the tracks had been cleared, except for one. So as I began to throw the tracks together as spontaneously as possible, the structure of the mix began to take shape. I did a single take before I recorded the final version of the mix as it is now in order to keep it as lively and representative of a live DJ set as possible. I don’t think I’ve enjoyed myself as much working on a mix in the studio before!”
The mix itself is a captivating ride through Deetron’s most personal selections, with disparate sounds, scenes and styles all connected up with perfect sequencing and tight mixing.  There’s everything from classic Chicago material by DJ Sneak and Gemini to material from Detroit stalwart Carl Craig via leftfield inclusions from Atoms For Peace. As well as some old classics there are modern gems from the fast rising likes of Marquis Hawkes and Seven Davis Jr, plus no nonsense techno inclusions from pioneers like Function and Marcel Dettmann. A truly kaleidoscopic mix, fabric 76 is the sound of a DJ digging deep, having fun, and playing those tracks in Deetron’s distinctive style.

Matthias Tanzmann – ‘fabric65′

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 23, 2012 by E.N.

Matthias Tanzmann crafts fabric 65 into a chunky and mesmerizing episode of the definitive compilation series. Featuring classics (Silicone Soul‘Right On, Right On’ Tanzmann remix) alongside current cuts (Maya Jane Coles ‘Not Listening’) entwined together in his own unique style, the mix is an insight into a longstanding hero of the house music community.

“The first records I bought were 90s techno from German labels like Harthouse or EyeQ. Later in the mid 90s I discovered house when I listened to stuff like St. Germain ‘Boulevard’ or Matthew Herbert´s ‘Around The House’. Especially listening to Matthew Herbert performing live with Dani Siciliano – that blew my mind.”

Tanzmann embeds elements from these influences into his own musical personality. An atmospheric mix, it retains a solid drive throughout from the steady pace of Monkey Maffia’s deep and melodic ‘Sources From The Past’ to the mischievious groove of ’Butt’ from Jeff Moore & Jamie Lie A Kwie. Gathering speed as the story unfolds into the hypnotic and sultry tones of Alexis Cabrera’s ‘Everything’ before the percussive explosion of Just Be’‘Rain Come Down’ makes a climactic end.

fabric is one of the greatest clubs with one of the best sound systems in the world. Playing there to me is always a pleasure and honour and compiling a CD even more. In my mix I wanted to show music that touches me right now, and at the same time won’t be so popular that it will be out of fashion after this year. I would like the CD to be enjoyable for many years to come.

Tanzmann grew up in Leipzig, Germany during the time the Berlin Wall came down. His early years saw massive political upheaval around him and so the rawness of electronic music easily took hold of him while still at school. During his studies he began various ventures into production and started his infamous Moon Harbour record label twelve years ago, long before Berlin was an epicenter for house and techno music. His second imprint Cargo Edition was started six years later around the time he was asked to be a resident at Circo Loco DC10 Ibiza, a title he still retains. A true professional in a world of excess, Tanzmann remains one of the pioneers of his sound yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Fabric 58:Craig Richards presents The Nothing Special

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 26, 2011 by E.N.

 

The long reigning king of fabric celebrates his unique programming concept as Craig Richards presents The Nothing Special for the next installment of the compilation series. As musical director, Craig Richards has not only defined the musical output of the world’s most iconic nightspot but in doing so has shaped British underground music. Craig has been with fabric since its birth and has revolutionized the concept of a residency. Always allowed complete freedom to invite artists and program them around his own regular weekly performance, his forward-thinking attitude has been a guiding light on the musical horizon. The Nothing Special allows his versatility to shine through further as he invites his most admired live acts to Saturdays at fabric for an irregular series of obscure affairs featuring the likes of Shackleton, Deadbeat, Pole and more.

“After an eleven year residency at fabric I wanted to create a night that required me to play all night around Live acts, setting the scene for each one as the evening progresses. Playing a gentle deep warm up for Moritz Von Oswald, or a twitchy electro set before Dopplereffekt, or a disco set before Emperor Machine, all of which I am capable of because of the variety within my residency.”

An avid collector of vinyl, Craig Richards spent his early years saving to buy records through takings from his own barbershop within a vintage clothing store before moving to New York and LA during the birth of house music. In 1987 he landed a place at St. Martins School of Art in London, just as acid house fever descended on the Capital. These early experiences fashioned a deep passion and broad knowledge of music that led him, a somewhat private and reflective character, to become a true cult figure for a generational movement.

“The Paradise Garage was full of freaky people, the music was louder and clearer than I had ever heard in my life. I´m certain that limited access to underground music throughout my formative years has given me an ability to seek and discover. There was no real way of hearing alternative music apart from going to nightclubs. This was really the only way of having a relationship with music other than the nonsense they played on the radio.”

In 1997 he formed Tyrant with Lee Burridge and together they held long-standing and infamous residencies at The End in London and The Bomb in Nottingham. Craig undertook the first episode of the fabric mixes (voted no 12 best compilations of the decade by Resident Advisor) and no 15 as Tyrant, once Lee had begun to trawl the globe. Meanwhile Craig gained notoriety for remaining in one place, slowly changing the shape and pace of dance music from fabric’s unassuming booth. The Nothing Special reflects the diversity and steadfast nature he is renowned for and echoes his obscure and considered approach to his craft. Starting back in the mid 90s with Andrew Weatherall and Keith Tenniswood’s Two Lone Swordsmen guise the mix ebbs and flows in a timeless manner taking in rare cuts from Conscious Minds on his own Tyrant label, Housey Doingz from fellow fabric resident Terry Francis’s Wiggle imprint and an unknown cut from early Chicago legend Gemini, whose work is notoriously difficult to license. With most choices unfamiliar, the mix is typical of Craig’s bold approach and resolute manner and imparts untold rewards after close inspection.

“New records are not always great because they are new. As much as is possible in eighty minutes I have attempted to give an honest insight into what I do. One of the greatest lessons learnt at Art school was to embrace the concept of failure whilst trying new things. All artists must appreciate this. I don´t like the idea of doing what is expected of me. I play what I feel and entertain the dancefloor but I don´t work for the people on it. I would prefer to consider myself a chef not a waiter.  I play records I believe in and try to thread them together to make a story if sometimes it doesn´t work that’s OK.”
