2010 was a year of experimentation and genesis for us. Since our first marathon opening for our 10th Birthday our regular extended hours On & On party (and its little brother On offshoot) pushed artists’ performance forward through extended sets. It’s something that proved strong on the dance floor, entertaining and blossoming crowds and staff alike. This NYE we’re building on a little bit of what we learned at these events, opening our doors for a full 12 hour stint from 9am-9pm; and this year we are presenting a 100% fabric line up, there’s no split with FABRIC LIVE as seen in previous years.
What you get is a lineup that packs some of those performers responsible for some of the most ground shaking sets over the last 12 months, alongside our resident selectors Craig Richards and Terry Francis. Ahead of the event we’ve trawled the net, yep – we’re like a more user friendly tastemaker google, to bring you enticement and a few audio testaments to the music this exceptional collection of artists has bought to Farringdon.
Cassy will be coming at you from the Room One booth, so we’ve linked a mix hosted on Red Bull Music Academy Radio. Shining out amongst her peers, her all vinyl DJ sets have maintained her status as a pioneer; a rep that was first carved with an early residency at Panorama bar and with through her work with production partners David Caretta and Zombie Nation. Today she has her own label simply named Cassy and continues to stay in the limelight as one of the world’s most loved DJs, an accolade confirmed in this year’s Resident Advisor DJ poll where she came in at number 18.
Room Two takes a turn towards the minimal and a harder, more techno dynamic. Soon to be transporting his dark and melodic twisted beats is M_nus’s Hearthrob whose production plays with the notions of experimentation and have earned him high esteem on the international minimal scene.
Headlining Room Two is Spain’s most prolific DJ Paco Osuna whose reputation has been earned by mixing organic jazz inspired percussion with beats that bounce, hard. Paco is also responsible for Mindshake Recordings and a stable on Plus 8, credentials that deem him more than worthy for the task of bringing the dacefloor to its’ knees this NYE.
