It’s an outlook Calibre draws on quite heavily for the duration of FABRICLIVE 68, using his own music and that of his peers to create a mix that’s both reflective of the way that he plays when he DJs and the bafflingly bountiful body of work he’s produced. Including several soulful vocal tracks that are reflective of his background and passion for song-writing, Calibre drops a single track that’s exclusive to the mix with his take on stripped bare d&b on ‘Simple Things’, also adding a couple of sterling examples of him reworking songs, here taking tracks by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Bo Saris out of their pop roots and re-imagining them as mournful soul tinged standards alongside pieces like ‘Inner Disbelief’ which hark back to purist jungle.
Leaning on the music of Soul:r boss Marcus Intalex, Exit head honcho dBridge, Lynx and material from DJ Marky’s Innerground label, Calibre weaves the records together more by their key than anything else saying “I wanted it to be a bit more about things that would combine pitch-wise because sometimes DJs don’t have the pitched ear, where I do and I wanted to use that”.
|quote||This is the first time I’ve ever done a mix CD, so I was a little bit worried about how it would be received because sometimes when you’ve been doing something for so long, it’s hard to work out what people want from you because they all have different periods of work that they identify with. Some of the tunes that are on there, I’ve been playing at fabric over the years to varying degrees of effect. They’re just for me; they’re tunes that I’ve been playing for a long time some of them, so the mix is a representation of my work over the last ten years really.|
