Hailing from Birmingham, Hannah is a champion of the new breed of bass-orientated, garage-influenced house of her hometown. Following a life-changing trip to Ibiza, Hannah worked hard to build a solid fanbase through her unique, energy-filled sets, journey-like mixtapes and successful forays into production. In 2014 she was crowned both DJ Mag and Mixmag's ‘Best Breakthrough DJ’ as well as Mixmag’s ‘Star of the Year’. 2015 saw Hannah given the opportunity to build on this with an Essential Mix for Radio One, as well as a contribution to the Residency series. Following an incredible, fast-paced few years, Hannah Wants is now joining the ranks of one of the UK’s most esteemed mix CD series, FABRICLIVE.
"I’m really proud of this mix. I feel it’s the perfect representation of myself as an artist at this current time in my career. One thing I’ve come to learn is that sounds and styles are ever evolving and so if you compare this to a mix I made say three years ago, it really is quite different. I had to dig my old hard drive when I made this mix, I wanted it to be a unique and refreshing play to the listeners. " Hannah Wants
FABRICLIVE 89 shows off Hannah’s bass-heavy sound channelled throughout her own productions, as well as those from well-known players like Shadow Child, Cera Alba and Josh Butler. The already-iconic collaboration between Funky pioneer Champion and Four Tet’s ‘Flip Side’ makes the cut too. The mix also sees Hannah venturing into darker, tech-ier territory, such as the Erykah Badu-sampling ‘High’ by Dennis Cruz and Enrico Sangiuliano & Secret Cinema’s ‘Alone With The Bitch’. An unreleased track by Jacob B, ‘The Substance’ provides one of the heaviest moments of the mix, contrasting nicely with the sparse yet gritty follow up, Alex Coulton’s ‘Ambush’. Hannah rounds off with a couple of releases from two of techno’s biggest labels, Tale Of Us’s remix of Thugfucker’s famous ‘Disco Gnome’ on Life And Death and Marco Faraone’s pounding ‘Boost’ on Drumcode. Expertly bringing the tempo back down Hannah selects Domino release ‘Cold Nites’ by How To Dress Well as her final track.
