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."
