NEWSFLASH: DJ Shadow Brings All Basses Covered 2013 to FABRICLIVE

Following his Mo Wax released Entroducing… album in 1996, DJ Shadow became something on an impossible benchmark for instrumental hip hop producers to try and emulate. His sonic experiments and the three artist albums that followed have been lauded as much for how broad they were as they were for the multitude of ideas and production techniques he presented in them. And considering the release of his extensive Reconstructed project - essentially a self-curated best of which draws material from the afore mentioned LPs, his collaborative album with James Lavelle as UNKLE and his work on the Dark Days soundtrack – and the tongue in cheek title of his tour: All Basses Covered 2013, you get the impression that he’s more than aware of that fact. From the funk 45s of his Brainfreeze and Product Placement tours with Cut Chemist to his current genre spanning, freewheeling sets - that have set the internet alight after he was asked by the promoter to stop DJing at a Miami show last year for playing “too future” - Shadow’s always underpinned his DJing with a seemingly supernatural and experimental second sense. He’ll be presenting another piece of himself here in Farringdon on Friday 12th July when he performs live across a range of instrumentation (switching from playing on drum pads to digital software and CDJs) in Room One alongside sets from a very special guest yet to be announced celebrated DJ and one of the proponents behind the modern day LA beat scene, Kutmah, Metalheadz most recent signing, Om Unit and Alex Patchwork. In Room Two Manchester’s industrious Hoya:Hoya collective return with their team strong. Rinse FM and Hoya regular Krystal Klear will bring his unique sense of boogie to the headline slot alongside residents Illum Sphere, Jonny Dub, Éclair Fifi and Jon K. Room Three will be populated exclusively by Planet Mu artists for the very first time with one of their institutions Boxcutter, joining Ital Tek and Konx Om Pax up on the mezzanine. -- FABRICLIVE - FRIDAY 12th JULY 2013 tickets: doors: 10pm – 6am price: £20 advance, £15 students & fabricfirst ROOM ONE: DJ SHADOW - ALL BASSES COVERED 2013… DJ Shadow (DJ Set), Special Guest, Kutmah, Om Unit, Alex Patchwork ROOM TWO: HOYA:HOYA… Krystal Klear, Illum Sphere, Jonny Dub, Éclair Fifi, Jon K Hosted by Chunky ROOM THREE: PLANET MU… Boxcutter, Ital Tek, Konx Om Pax, Planet Mu DJs
