Now & Then – Fleur Shore
The slick and energetic emerging selector picks three vital tracks that have inspired her sound to date.
Fleur Shore refuses to confirm to anyone’s expectations of dance music. This energetic selector and emerging young talent has been a guest here at fabric on several occasions over the past few years, and will join us again on 10th June amongst a heated selection of fellow house and techno music professionals, set to bring her effortless control of the dancefloor back to Room 1.
Through snippets from her previous sets and unforgettable dancefloor moments here in Farringdon, Fleur has consistently proven herself to be a trailblazing artist, leading the way in her field. Her diverse range of genre knowledge shines through her performances, reflecting her early explorations in sound. From a young age, she developed a record collection steeped in the enchantment of the late 80s and 90s, and this era of musical experimentation permeates both her sets and productions. Fleur's selections span from the likes of Slick Rick to Bill Withers, and Salt-N-Pepa to Ms. Lauryn Hill, showcasing a deep appreciation for the magic of that time.
In her productions, Fleur effortlessly channels infectious basslines, captivating vocals, and an unwavering passion to revive the sounds of some of dance and electronic music's most notable golden eras, all spun and re-imagined her own unique twist. With notable releases on labels such as Cuttin Headz, Moxy Music, and Edible Beats Fleur's hard-working production output has garnered attention from respected figures like The Martinez Brothers and Jesse Calosso.
Before Fleur takes to the coveted Room 1 stage once again on June 10th, we wanted to delve deeper into the sonic world of this talented artist. In anticipation of the event, we had the opportunity to connect with Fleur and explore the three tracks that she considers pivotal to her DJ and production journey. She shared with us a track from the past that has left an indelible impact on her, a current tune that never fails to ignite the dancefloor during her sets, and a selection from an artist who has captured her attention and whom she predicts will have a significant future in the industry.
The Past: Dedication – Krystal Klear
"When I first started DJing I used to play this set in every set. Those organs are SO good. Gives me proper house music feels. A track from my past that has crept back into my sets of late though."
The Present: R U Feelin' Me – Hipp-E
"One of those late 90s early 00s groovers that’s been in my sets a lot lately. The drums are just insane on this track and the bongos give me life! The bassline is just chugging the track along and along and along! BOMB.COM."
Hipp-E plays with Halo at fabric as H Foundation on 24th June. Book tickets.
The Future: Sounds a bit 90s’ – Luke Dean
"Ironically my track from the future is called ‘Sounds a bit 90s’ by Luke Dean. This guy is going to be the future, his productions are insane! This music is perfectly suited to my style, I love 90s house and he brings it back in such a genius way. Full support."
Fleur Shores plays Room 1 on 10th June alongside Eats Everything, Alan Fitzpatrick, Mason Maynard & Saytek Live.
