Posted in Music on Tuesday 30th November, 2010 by Smash Gordon

Ahead of the imminent release Sam Shackleton's fabric 55 mix and his appearance in Room Two on the 11th December - where he'll be playing alongside the Frequency 7 duo (Ben Sims and Surgeon) and Punch Drunk Recordings boss, Peverelist - FACT are exclusively streaming a 30 minute segment of the commercial mix. Head over at the link below to be in with a chance of winning a copy of the mix and tickets to his performance.

"Out next week, the album – essentially a studio-locked live set of all-Shack material, including several previously unreleased cuts – is comparable to Omar-S’s fabric 45, if only in the sense that it functions almost as a “best of” the artist’s recent work," says FACT. "fabric 55 includes not only a wealth of brand new material, plus two cuts from his recently inaugurated Woe To The Septic Heart label, several from last year’s Perlon triple-pack Three EPs and a couple of numbers from his Skull Disco and Mordant Music days. But perhaps the most notable aspect of fabric 55 is not content, but context: the way it captures the breakneck intensity of Shackleton’s live performances, his expert modulation of minimalist, ‘floor-friendly grooves and a level of textural density that verges on out-and-out delirium."
