2019 marks the 20th anniversary for Fabric, one of London’s premiere nightclubs. In the English capital, Fabric acts as a central hub for dance music, bringing in locals and international fans alike. Those who are following the club’s endeavors may have noticed a recent but brief blackout, as they boarded up the space, repainted, and went dark on social media. In light of the anniversary, Fabric posted the new announcement on their website:

“In 2019 we celebrate our 20th anniversary, and while to many this would present an opportunity to reflect on the past, we see it as an important opportunity to look to the future.”

Looking toward the future includes a loaded schedule for their fabric XX event series, with “20 special parties” to look forward to. Phase one of the series includes techno favorites Lee Burridge, John Digweed, Martinez Brothers, and more, all slated to play extended sets “for up to 10 hours.” Tickets for all fabric XX dates are available on Resident Advisor.

In addition to some new London residents, they’re also launching a quarterly mix series “fabric presents,” with the first edition featuring English DJ Bonobo (also featured on their fabric XX lineup).

Lastly, their brand will hit two of the cities major festivals (not yet named) and will return to Barcelona’s OFF Week. More announcements will be coming via their website.

“We want to say thank you to everyone that’s been part of this journey over the past two decades. So much of the world surrounding us has changed in this timespan, but your love for us has always been unparalleled. From the celebratory times to our most challenging moments, it’s your support that’s built our legacy.”

All Day I Dream has officially created a Los Angeles tradition. As with the past few consecutive New Year’s weekends, the Lee Burridge-led brand touches down in the city to cap off the 2018 — and bringing a couple close friends with it. Sebastien Légér, a star in the progressive realm, will be exploring his deep house side come December 29. The producer had a fair amount of his work signed to the label this year, with his Underwater Rocket EP being a notable addition.

Gab Rhome will also be joining in the festivities. An expert in sentimentality, his records have found their way onto Anjunadeep, Henry Saiz’ Natura Sonoris, and beyond, the Canadian maestro will be a welcome new face at the Sunday afternoon gathering. Per usual, it will be held at Chinatown’s historic Gin Ling way, an intimate and fitting location for the All Day I Dream ambiance.

Hoj and Lee Burridge have picked a fine set of collaborators to help finish Tale + Tone‘s 2018 on a strong note. In Synergy, two pairs of caliber underground talent have fashioned complementary tunes that each pack a delectable melodic punch per the label’s aesthetic. Our focus is on Kora and Wuachuma’s contribution, “Naavi,” which serves to remind us that the two make a seamless pairing.

In a similar vein to their “Nuit D’Afrique” collaboration, the two burgeoning talents base “Naavi” in a tribal foundation, building a mysterious piece around it with choice vocal samples and celestial synth melodies that cut through a dense harmonic layering. The track feels plenty ritualistic, fit for driving a meditative state in its listeners while evoking mental imagery of nights spent dancing in the Tulumian jungle — or, perhaps on an off-grid desert. This sound is clearly one both Kora and Wuachuma have mastered over their tenure in dance.

Fans of Kora in the East Coast will be happy to know the Canadian artist is soon touching down in New York for an open-to-close set in Brooklyn. Purchase tickets to the affair, which commences on the evening of December 8, here.

Premiere: Facundo Mohrr – The Blue Bird [All Day I Dream]

Premiere: Facundo Mohrr – The Blue Bird [All Day I Dream]ADID EP 038 Facundo Mohrr

If there’s anyone who knows their way around a full-bodied, melodic piece, it’s Facundo Mohrr. The burgeoning talent hails from Argentina, a hotbed for this type of sound that has birthed iconic artists like Hernan Cattaneo, Kevin Di Serna, and beyond while also serving as a mecca for clubbers enjoying the sound. Not to mention, Facundo also found his way into the musically like-minded Burner culture, which led to a natural alliance with Lee Burridge and the All Day I Dream camp.

His Valdovinos collaboration “November” was well-received, catalyzing an entire EP on the iconic imprint shortly thereafter. The four-track La Espere is thus a culmination of everything that makes Facundo a standout talent; intricate layering, soft pads, and dynamic instrumentation. Dancing Astronaut is particularly keen on “The Blue Bird,” a cinematic cut that blooms like a flower into a free-flowing piece with a sentimental climax. Each listen brings about something new to keep the listener on their toes, whether it’s noticing the twinkling piano chords in the first half of the song, or the cleverly-placed hits of pan flute toward the end. “The Blue Bird” is thus a beautifully adaptable piece, working well as a piece to be consumed at home, or on the dancefloor when needing a meditative boost.

Order a copy of La Espere, out on November 16, here.

The world’s most eco-friendly festival is returning to Costa Rica, and for their 2019 edition, Envision Festival has programmed one of their finest lineups yet. While the event is branded as a music festival, Envision would be more appropriately described as a permaculture and yoga retreat, offering attendees a tropical jungle getaway, accented with music, art, exploration, spirituality, and education.

Now in their ninth year, Envision is bringing saxophone-wielding electro-soul factotum GRiZ to the festival’s shores, along with Tycho, each for headlining duties, as well as additional sets slated through the four-day event. Lee Burridge will bring All Day I Dream to Uvita, Random Rab will return for his ninth edition of the festival, along with French wave maker CloZee, The Floozies, reggae star Trevor Hall, and more.

This year’s Envision lineup also places a special emphasis on Latin American sounds, representing the festival’s hosting region in with a blend of bass, techno, electro, and more. The festival’s three stages, Sol, Luna, and Lapa, will host a massive crop of talent from February 28 – March 3, with a few planned surprises baked into this year’s roster. Envision founder Josh Wendel expressed,

“This year, we went bigger with our top headliners, and took more risks on up and coming artists. We also intentionally plan to throw a few curveballs into the schedule to keep guests on their toes not knowing when their next favorite artists might be playing.”

Lee Burridge to headline HAUNTED DEEP Halloween house event in ChicagoHaunted Deep Lee Burridge 1

Paradigm Presents has carved its way into the Chicago club scene for years now, meshing swimmingly by way of its house-driven ethos, booking deep and eclectic talent. In the past, the brand has hosted venerable names like Thugfucker, Solomun, and Dusky at its meticulously curated soirees. Now, PP prepares for a particularly ‘DEEP’ Halloween, summoning some of the Burning Man Playa’s biggest names for what’s sure to be a mystical outing.

All Day I Dream owner Lee Burridge will be headlining the multi-environment HAUNTED DEEP, set to spook city-goers Friday, October 26 at Mine Music Hall. Burridge will be bringing his dreamy brand of house and fluid mixing skills to the table. Among the roster of 10 total DJs booked for the affair is MR C, who runs California institution, Superfreq, and his colleague Jay Tripwire. This is Burridge’s second appearance in Chicago in under two months, as September saw him bring the second-ever, immaculately decorated ADID to the Windy City lakefront.

Lee Burridge, Lost Desert, and Junior return with a follow-up EP to ‘Lingala’ [EP Review]

This post was originally published on this site

Lee Burridge

Everything seemed to fall perfectly into place when Lee Burridge, his longtime collaborator Lost Desert, and Broadway vocalist Junior met together in the studio for the first time. Their collective chemistry and knack for ear-catching arrangement with tasteful use of ethnocentric elements translated into an instant classic: “Lingala.” Junior’s vocals, sung in the language the title get its name from, were distinctive, while Lee Burridge and Lost Desert forged a grooving house foundation.

Naturally, the three acts remained drawn to one another, and once more met up to create new music together; this time, an entire EP titled Elongi was the result. It’s meant as a follow-up to “Lingala,” in both lyrical content and in its musical undertones. The record’s title opener entices the eardrums immediately with lush percussion and passionate verses by Junior as the track’s melodic centerpiece.

“Elongi” flows nicely “Mona Yo,” where the momentum picks up. Though it shares similar motifs to its predecessor, it stands on its own with a catchy bassline that is orbited by drawn-out synth notes. “Float On” is EP’s euphoric cut — twinkling synth riffs harmonzied by a bittersweet bassline are pierced by Junior’s yells, creating the sonic equivalent of a warm blanket. It serves as quite the touching closer as well, leaving one with an afterglow when the record finally ends.

 

‘Elongi’ was released on June 22 on All Day I Dream. Pick up a copy here
