Tale Of Us to mix fabric 97

This post was originally published on this site

Following the recent release of their Endless remix package, the beloved techno titans Tale Of Us are set to mix fabric 97 — out February 16, 2018.

Carmine Conte and Matteo Milleri rose in the techno reigns with their early sets in the club, making Tale Of Us a natural choice of the seminal mix series.

Near half of the tracks on the new mix are exclusive to the compilation, which is set to include unreleased tracks from Afterlife label regulars and upcoming acts. Tale Of Us’ fabric 97 mix promises to be an emotive showcase dictating the duo’s rise. An exclusive from the two will also be served up near the mix’s end, entitled “Error Error.”

Having a keen knack for the synthesis of brooding and blistering techno, fabric 97 will undoubtedly be a fluid tale of the two simultaneously cementing their reputation and hinting the best is yet to come.

Tracklist:
1. Tom Flynn – Cup Of Joe
2. Recondite – Saudade
3. Trikk – Metala
4. Agents Of Time – Ness
5. Mind Against & Aether – Covenant

A knockoff Fabric has been discovered in China

It has long been said that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, but in a country infamous for its copy and paste pop culture, it seems things have been taken to an entirely new level.

Just last week, Dutch DJ and promoter Bram van Ravenhorst — aka Blind ’92 — who operates an underground club called Echo Bay in Chongqing, China spotted a familiar sign in the country. Unfortunately, Ravenhorst came to find that the city’s “FABRIC” also boasts a logo nearly identical to the one used by the iconic London institution of the same name. He captured the image below.

Fabric-Shanghai-door

According to Mixmag Asia, it seems the nightclub’s name and logo are the only similarities, as the Fabric knockoff boasts commercial EDM and house music, as well as China’s “sexy girls dancing.”

Having opened in 1999, the storied London Fabric is one of the most well-respected and well-known underground music institutions in the world. Undoubtedly, the global dance music community will have its opinions of the counterfeit institution, but one thing’s for sure, nothing will ever compare to the original.

Fabric is celebrating its 18-year anniversary this weekend, but this time around the London-based nightclub is giving rather than receiving.

After the venue’s closure in September, Fabric fans made a collective effort to reboot the club, raising money to support Fabric’s then potential re-opening. Fabric owners would eventually strike a deal with Islington Council and police officials to reinstate the club, allowing Fabric to open its doors once more several months thereafter.

The efforts of those that rallied for Fabric’s re-opening generated more than £330,000 ($388,919 USD). Left with £68,000 ($80,000+) of leftover fundraising cash, Fabric has donated the remaining funds to a variety of charities including The Loop, NTIA, Music Venue Trust, Centrepoint Midi Music Company, Make-a-Wish UK, Nordoff Robbins, and YUAF. The nightclub has erected a donor board in Room 2 of the club that displays the names of each person that contributed to the original fundraiser to benefit Fabric, an authentic addition to the nightclub’s sleek design.

Fabric to throw 30-hour party for its 18th birthday

This post was originally published on this site

Fabric will soon be of legal age.

Come October, the London based nightclub will celebrate its eighteenth birthday in “adult” fashion with a thirty-hour party. The extended event will commence on Saturday, October 21 at 11 PM and will continue into the wee morning hours on Monday, October 23rd.

As is usually the case of birthdays, Fabric will be commemorating its eighteenth anniversary with some friends. Ten acts have been confirmed for Fabric’s birthday event thus far, including Ricardo Villalobos, Jay Clarke, and Raresh. More performers will be added to the marathon’s lineup as the event approaches.

Fabric was unfortunately unable to host a birthday event for its seventeenth year last year due to being shut down a week prior by authorities and having its license be revoked for drug and crime related reasons. Therefore, the institution is sure to make up for the time it lost last year in this year’s festivities.

Fabric nightclub offers free entry for life in exchange for naming their office cat

This post was originally published on this site

Fabric nightclub has had an emotional roller-coaster of a journey in the past year, following its narrowly-escaped permanent and powerful re-opening.

Making a comeback and proving to loyal weekend attendees that renowned nightclub is here to stay, the Fabric team has embarked on its next conquest: naming their office cat. Seeking the perfect moniker for their new furry friend, Fabric is asking fans and Facebook users to help them in naming their office cat. In exchange for the selected name, the “winner” will receive free entry (+1) to Fabric for life.

Names can be submitted in the comments section of their Facebook post (embedded below) until June 9 – giving hopeful applicants approximately 48 hours to conceive of the most intriguing cat name possible.

NOTE: No variations of the name “Rob” will be considered.

Dance culture has proven to be a vehicle that defiantly stands in the face of adversity, and techno producer and DJ Seth Troxler is certainly one of the scene’s most outspoken advocates leading the charge.

Tonight, January 6, London’s famed Fabric nightclub will reopen after having its license revoked by the government due to a drug-related death in the venue in Summer of 2016. The venue’s forced closure was followed by a #SaveFabric campaign and a successful appeal to reverse the city’s ruling. Troxler appeared on BBC News for a roundtable discussion about the controversial decision and the never-ending topic of drugs in dance music and club culture.

“Drugs are a social problem…this isn’t only a club problem,” Seth argued when asked if drugs are an “integral part of clubbing culture.” The DJ continued, “When you look at pop music today, or pop culture, drugs are littered throughout the entire culture. The idea that dance music culture is to blame for drug use is completely ridiculous.”

Seth stated the following when addressing other sub-cultures afflicted by drug abuse:

“There are drug deaths everywhere. There are drug deaths on the street right now in London because of the heroin epidemic, but no one is talking about that. I think this is more of a story where the Council was trying to gentrify the neighborhood and using Fabric as an example for their greater will.”

Fabric deciding how to spend nearly £110,000 in funds from #saveourculture

After reaching an agreement with London authorities to reopen, the iconic Fabric nightclub has found itself with £109,594 from its #saveourculture fundraising campaign. While a definite spending plan has not been announced, the club said it plans to apply the money toward “worthy causes” within the dance music industry. One effort will including working to reform the Licensing Act 2003.

Fabric’s managing directory Gary Kilbey said “Our final financial statement shows a substantial overage of over £100,000 that we are currently discussing how to manage. This is in a segregated account and will be available to fund not only our ongoing attempt to reform licensing guidance, led by Philip Kolvin QC, but also to assist other industry associated causes. We’re looking at several ideas including charitable status or a Trust to ensure proper financial governance of this large amount which is currently in a segregated account and all details of it will be reported monthly.”

On January 6, 2017, the club will commence its reopening weekend with a Friends & Family party.

Arguably one of 2016’s finest success stories, Fabric’s conquest to regain its license has officially come to an end. The iconic UK nightclub will reopen its doors on January 6, 2017.

In mid-August, the club announced it would temporarily shut its doors to facilitate an investigation of two drug-related deaths. Several days later, an even bleaker announcement rolled across social media: Fabric would remain closed until a license review was held to evaluate the venue’s safety for guests.

Come September, Fabric’s license was revoked and forced to shut down when Flora Williamson, sub-committee chair of Licensing at Islington Town Hall on Monday evening, decided the venue was unfit to control the passing of drugs through its doors. For months, the possibility of the famed nightclub’s reopening appeared almost nonexistent to fans and DJs alike. Yet £333,618 and one grueling fight later, Fabric won.

Opening weekend will take place January 6-8, and is dedicated to the friends and family members who supported Fabric since day one. Craig Richards, Terry Francis and a slate of special guests are scheduled to celebrate the club’s opening.
