Craig Richards - fabric 01 CD
Craig Richards' DJing soundtracks fabric's Saturday nights every week. Blending dubby, breaky, house music with fragile, ever-funky techno, his sets have continually explored new and emerging genres. Craig is also fabric's Musical Director.
"This mix takes inspiration from the trippy innocence of the fabric dancefloor at 6am. It is made up of personal favourites, past and present. It gives an insight into what I do, but more importantly into the sound of fabric on a Sunday morning." Craig Richards
'fabric 01' finds Craig shape-shifting over 70 minutes of subtle and involving dark-dance. Check Gemini's twisted frequencies and the latent funk of Stefan Schwander; Anton Kubikov's spacious sounds and Jamie Anderson's expressive melodies. There's scalpel-sharp beats and razor-edged bass from Swag, the pounding paranoia in Matthew B's 'Bluntski', layers of swinging mood and intricate hooks from co-resident Terry Francis, and the acid-tinged strings of Aubrey and Max Brennan.
