'fabric presents Nicola Cruz' is out now
Nicolá Cruz presents the next edition of our fabric presents series. fabric presents Nicola Cruz is out now on CD, Digital and X2LP.
The new 26-track compilation is a special new curation from the French born, Ecuadorian raised producer. The mix drives towards the strange, experimental, and unexpected of underground electronica and marks the first release in our mix series with strong roots in South and Latin American artists and music.
Nicolá Cruz has found a unique way to tap into his home continent's illustrious musical past and the sounds spawning from South America through the compilation. The result is something utterly contemporary featuring music from the likes of Marco Shuttle, Verraco, Nick León, Jonny From Space and more.
“I feel I've reconnected with electronic dance music and that's what this mix is about; being able to understand again, and to compose, and play with this energy that I had forgotten. The same goes with my live show at the moment, the concept is basically enjoying the driving nature of electronic music.” – Nicolá Cruz
The mix travels through the opening track ‘Everything Falls Into Place’ from MMM (Errorsmith & Fiedel), sweeping through bass, breaks, techno, analogue-glitch, to the folky Portuguese lyrics of ‘Mensagem Enviada’ from Rico Jorge. Nick León, Verraco, Varuna and machìna are a few of the artists who have provided exclusive tracks. Cruz’ Fauna Extincta alias also graces the mix with ‘IER’, only the second song to be released under that moniker.
The CD and streaming services play the continuous mix. Download stores supply a bundle of full length tracks and the continuous mix, while the double vinyl format features twelve full length tracks from the mix including ‘Contato’ and ten more exclusive tracks.
