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.

Daphni (Dan Snaith) to release Daphni-centered Fabriclive mix, Fabriclive 93 (feat. Daphni)

This post was originally published on this site

Up until this point, Daphni — the dance floor-inclined persona of Dan Snaith — hasn’t propagated a ton in the way of original music. But clearly the Canadian musician, otherwise known for his work under the Manitoba and Caribou monikers, has developed a comprehensive solution to this: instead of releasing another standard studio album of typical length (which isn’t a knock to 2012’s Jiaolong), Daphni has just announced that he’ll be helming Fabriclive 93, the next iteration in the mix series sponsored by the recently resuscitated London club. And, in contrast to most Fabriclive iterations released thus far, nearly every song on Fabriclive 93 is a Daphni track! (Hey: nobody said that tooting your own horn is inherently a bad thing — especially when each expertly crafted “toot” serves to further compel the aggressive shaking of one’s toot-maker.)

Snaith’s compositional process for this giant new megamix actually recalls how Daphni project got started in the first place. According to the man himself, diving deep into his back catalog wasn’t really an option, so he often chose to compose songs from scratch in order to establish the utmost congruity. “It was essentially a studio recording,” says Snaith, which is certainly just fine with anyone out there who’s been aching for more Daphni material.

Fabriclive 93 is set for release July 21, but you can pre-order its composite 27 tracks-worth of horn-tooteryright here. You can also catch the opening track down below, followed by the cover art and the full, satisfyingly Daphni-centric trackslisting:

Seth Troxler defends dance culture ahead of Fabric’s reopening [Video]

This post was originally published on this site

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.”
