DJ Bone's first new music in four years, 'Black Market EP', is out now via fabric Originals
The Detroit stalwart's brand new four-track EP is out now (21st October), the second release on our new label imprint.
We're delighted to be welcoming DJ Bone into the fabric Originals fold. Out now on fabric our brand new label imprint fabric Originals is Black Market EP, the Detroit techno stalwarts first original new music EP since 2018.
Black Market EP pays tribute to the classic Detroit sound whilst pushing things forward, true Bone style, without a shred of compromise. An artist who is accustomed to doing things on his own terms due to his fiercely independent mindset, DJ Bone has provided an explosive, unique project to help introduce our newly launched fabric Originals label. The Black Market EP is far from just another release from a legendary artist – it is the sound of an artist, not content with resting on his own laurels, constantly evolving, and in the process creating timeless work.
From the outset, ‘Fulmination’ makes clear DJ Bone’s willingness to push his own sound forward; taking a relentless stance on the analog style that has become his signature. Cascading 909 snare rolls weave in and out of a dominant 4/4 kick, while a disorientating melodic line provides the main sonic tapestry for the track. ‘Fulmination’ is a masterclass in layering from the Detroit veteran; using various rhythmic patterns within each of the track’s parts to ensure the track weaves in and out of sequences seamlessly - adding a funky house-esque horn, ominous choir sounds, harshly chopped vocal samples and crashing textures to the mix to infuse stunning left-turns to a track built to overwhelm the senses and command the body into movement. Stream 'Fulmination HERE.
The record is also available in a limited run of 50 vinyl pressings with an additional die-cut logo slipcase outer (sold out on fabriclondon.com and Bandcamp but still available online from select record store outlets).
The four track EP arrives on vinyl, digital and Limited Edition vinyl (featuring an additional die-cut logo slipcase outer) via fabric Originals / @fabric_records on 21st October 2022.
