As we head into the throws of summer we’re hyped to reveal the next set of takeovers charging our forthcoming series of FABRICLIVE throw downs. Keeping with tradition, we’ll be covering all angles of drum & bass, dubstep and bass-driven club music via some of the UK’s powerhouse imprints and party collectives.
The series kicks off with one of FABRICLIVE’s longstanding mainstays on Friday 26th July, as Randall brings his Mac II label to the space. The UK veteran has been at the forefront of D&B and jungle since the early 90s, and equally he’s had close ties with us through our entire history. Expect classic D&B heat from him and a cast of close affiliates.
On August Bank Holiday, we prepare for a double-header in celebration of the long weekend. On Friday 23rd we’re joined by one of the scene’s most influential party crews, as Jungle Mania make their return. Anyone that joined their January session with us will attest to the sheer scale and intensity of their mammoth sessions, and the full line-up for this summer’s edition should guarantee the same. Also stopping by is Shimon with his leading AudioPorn imprint, plus the full Rewired crew packing vintage house anthems. That’s all followed by one day’s rest, before we head full speed into SW4 and a special Farringdon after hours session. The Clapham Common dwellers will be heading over to Farringdon with us to take over Room One for the festival’s official after party, inviting a clutch of the big guns playing our festival stage. Also touching down on the night are genre-blending flag-bearers Pretty Weird Records, plus the dub-affected sounds of Rompa’s Reggae Shack.
Rounding things off we mark two special milestone anniversaries on Friday 13th September. Two of the most prolific imprints in drum & bass history take hold of our space, as Viper and Biological Beats celebrate 15 years of leading the pack. Rough Tempo also join them for a night that should reflect the full weight of high-octane 170BPM sounds.
