Eli Brown is teaming up with Ibiza superpower event brand, ANTS, this Friday, November 1, at landmark London club spot, Fabric. The performance will be part of ANTS return to Forms series—summoning the cream of the techno/tech-house heavyweight crop.
Navigating a highly saturated Bristol house scene, Brown was forced to find fresh ways to make a lasting mark. His singular sound subsequently began to take shape. He’s now known for his penchant for painted, energizing house offerings with a pernicious twist. With high-profile appearances on Ultra Records, Lee Foss‘s Repopulate Mars, and Mark Knight‘s Toolroom (among a sundry of others), it’s evident ears, other than ours, are craning to get a slice of Brown’s sound.
By way of Dancing Astronaut, the “XTC” producer has compiled a list of tracks, specifically for the occasion. In conjunction with the club-courting house/tech cuts, Brown has provided listeners with a bit of method to his delicious aural mayhem—attaching his intention behind each track selection. Stream below to find out what’s in store for Brown’s Friday showing at Fabric. Tickets available here.
1. Solardo & Eli Brown – XTC – I had to pick this tune as it’s been a massive tune for me over the summer… We just dropped the video and sick remix is coming very very soon so hold tight for that.
2.Cuatero – Pa chu – Love this tune, proper grooves by one of my favourite producers on Seth Troxler’s Play it Say it label… Need I say more?
3.Monoky & Luis Miranda – Leggo – If you’ve heard me play over the past two month you will have heard this tune. Definitely one of my go-to tunes, the bassline is so heavy it always destroys the club.
4.Nathan Barato – Talk on – Old Hot Creations classic but I recently put this back in my sets and still smashes it so hard so I wanted to include it for those who may have missed it first time around.
5.Sosa – DFCW – Massive tune by one of my favourite new producers…go check him out as he’s got a big future.
6.Patrick Topping – Turbo Time – Wicked tune from one of the best producers around. Every time Patrick does a tune its always different and unique, this is no different… Massive early ’90s vibes on this.
7.Jey Kurmis – Caz She Can – Jey Kurmis can do no wrong in my eyes, his tunes have a certain vibe to them that no one else can replicate and this is a perfect example of how to create a groove.
8.Richy Ahmed – Come With Us – Another tune that’s been around for a while but I love the vibe so much, sounds like nothing else and one that perhaps went under the radar.
9.Jamie River – Pesos – New producer whom I don’t know much about but if this is anything to go by then I’m sure he’s set to do big things. Love the Latin vibes on this, the flute sample in the breakdown always creates a special moment when i’ve been playing it out.
10.Micheal Bibi – Garden of the Groove – Bibi’s back with another banger on Repopulate Mars, rolling grooves and massive b-line, this tune goes off believe me.
11.Rafa Barrios – Sense – Another big track in my sets over the past couple of months, love the energy on this tune. Rafa always makes wicked tunes, if you’ve not come across him make sure you check out his other stuff.
12.Ronni Spiteri – Tell me Something – Wicked tune from Ronni who’s a sick producer from Southampton UK on one of my favourite labels, Alan Fitzpatricks We are the Brave! Rolling Techno vibes…love it!
13.Eli Brown – 92 Thing – Probably my favourite tune of mine, slightly different sound than some of my other stuff but hopefully fans of my other stuff will still see the connection. Played by everyone from CamelPhat, Solardo, Carl Cox, and Adam Beyer over the summer, it’s been doing damage.
14.Raito – Sumer Of Love (Alan Fitzpatrick remix) – This tune has everything for me, wicked old-school vibes and a banger of a drop.. never fails to smash it.
15.Anja Schneider – Far Side of the Moon – Been playing this tune as my last tune of my sets recently and I love it, one of those tunes when you hear it in the rave you just want to put your head down and find a dark corner and get lost in the music!
