Weekend Guide: 25hrs curated by Craig Richards

This weekend, as part of our own 25-year celebrations, we’ll embark on a 25-hour journey curated by Craig to celebrate his 25-year residency at the club.

"When I was younger, all those years ago I never imagined having any long-term commitment, let alone a job. My 25-year residency at fabric has never represented either. For the first ten years I played every week, nowadays it’s a few times a year. It’s been quite a residency.

I’m not entirely convinced of luck as a concept but if I was to look at my journey within the brickwork institution that I helped to build, I would have to say I have been lucky. Lucky to have been asked in the beginning, lucky to have lasted this long and lucky to have served such a long apprenticeship in a skill which is an art form the minute you take it seriously.

I continue to learn about music and how to play it. Long may it last. The artists I have invited this year are just a few of what could have been many. They are talents from the past and future. Many are friends and I look forward to celebrating my future with theirs." - CRAIG RICHARDS

For the first time in our 25-year history, we have released a live solo recording by Craig Richards from the club.

“This mix was recorded on the second of December at a Continuum party. I commenced just after five and finished at nine. The heady combination of nostalgia coupled with the past, the future and more importantly my daughter dancing next to me, resulted in a mix that I felt happy with. Historically, I have been very self-critical and have chosen not to release many mixes. Across nearly four hours this one seems to encapsulate the twenty five years of playing at fabric. In 1998 I was invited by Keith Reilly to play weekly at what was an imaginary nightclub. I had no idea that experience would continue for so many years. Playing vinyl on that sound system and mixer is highly exciting and a joy in itself. I am delighted that this has been my method of sonic communication and remain deeply grateful for my ongoing residency.” - Craig Richards
