Randall presents Mac II. For more than two decades, the UK DJ and producer has been at the forefront of the jungle and drum & bass scene, widely regarded as one of the style’s most important visionaries. In the early 90s he helped merge breakbeat and hardcore with the then burgeoning jungle movement, before setting up his acclaimed label, Mac II. The imprint became a home for a clutch of D&B’s leading figures, and has remained a vital pillar for the sound through the years. For his Mac II showcase with us, Randall invites some of his label signees and closest affiliates to join him. Prepping for a special head-to-head are two longstanding veterans of the scene, Krust and Die. Both artists were instrumental in shaping FABRICLIVE’s early days alongside Randall, and are still vital forces in pushing innovative, high-energy drum & bass today. They’re flanked by star of the new school Chimpo, whose forward-thinking productions can be found on labels like Exit and Critical. Mac II artists Flex and Trex also go back-to-back, while Madcap steps up with LJ High. Rounding things off behind the decks, we welcome Biological Beats key face, Traumatize. Stepping in to take on hosting, we welcome a crew of D&B’s first-rate MCs: GQ, Moose, Inja, Fatman D, and Marga.
