It might look like a German invasion, but it’s not. We are just presenting to you again a mix made by another German producer. Oliver $ (known also as Oliver Dollar) records for a Berlin-based Made To Play label. At the same time he is its general ambassador and assistant producer. He earned a lot of respect for his fresh approach to house music. Jazz samples, the Balkan feeling and high quality mixes made him been compared to the genre’s leaders as Ricardo Villalobos or Akufen. Oliver $ is a resident of Berlin club Panorama and he’s at least twice better than 50 Cent.
It looks like recording great remixes runs in the German blood. Sebastian Doering, the Hamburger best known by his stage name, Lovebirds, proves this uncanny theory. However, his work could by no means be considered as average (even in terms of Germany), as he was awarded the title of Best Remixer in 2002. Both as Knee Deep (with Toddie Freese) and as Lovebirds, Doering has been performing in some of the best-known clubs in Europe. His work has been released by the highly-respected Winding Road Records. His DJ set, prepared specially for Fabric, is a superb and gripping blend of soul and funky music combined with contemporary house-style beats. Wunderschön!
Basically, Vera‘s music represents everything the German electronic scene stands for. Hailing from Frankfurt, she’s a resident at one of its most famous clubs – Robert Johnson‘s. Although she’s only been pursuing her career for a few years, she’s been playing at the most prominent venue’s in Europe and even occasionally performing in Japan. Vera is also known for being a half of the Mara Trax DJ duo. Her, typically German smart techno mix is a preview of her forthcoming show at the Fabrics Club, which will take place on the 20th of February.
Ben Ufo is a London-based DJ and the head of Hessle Audio label. Although he is most known for being a dubstep artist and promoter, his mix for Fabrics is scattered across genres. While listening, you might expect some dub or grime as well as orientally influenced melodies. For the mix, Ben Ufo has picked works of renowned artists such as Mala and Omar-S, combining them with recent UK bangers like Joy Orbison and James Blake. Mixed, not stirred!
Although he was born in France and raised in Brasil, Pierre LX pursues his career in the clubs of London. The DJ entered the limelight playing in T Bar and Bar Music Hall as well as releasing the highly acclaimed single “Gabita”. His music is a blend of minimal techno, house and disco. Since Pierre LX productions are organic, some might say that they’re kind of retro. His mix for Fabrics is totally improvised, consisting only of the sounds that he considered stimulating and prepared at home over a cup of tea. Would you believe it?
Zero T could be called a stalwart of the British heavy bass’ scene. He started his career back in the 90′s, playing in a legendary Dublin’s Bassbin Club. From this time on, he has been collaborating with a number of prominent figures on the elecrtonic scene, such as Ed Rush, Matrix and 4 Hero. Eventually he moved to London, where in 2008 he recorded the positively acclaimed “Cheap Shots” LP. Zero T’s mixes are blends of drum’n'bass and tunes that are distinctive of the British contemporary electronic scene.
Smutlee is a London-based DJ, resident at the popular Yo-Yo club. His mix was prepared exclusively for Fabrics‘ 10th anniversary. His selection is based on a highly-energetic blend of hip-hop, grime and dancehall music. Listening to the mix, you’ll hear an upbeat mixture of traditional Jamaican riddims and contemporary electronic music. Mainly in remixes and always with a heavy bass lines.
Autonomic is a project consisting of drum’n'bass icon – dBridge and a current electronic music revelation – Instra:mental. The aim of their cooperation is to restore drum’n'bass’ good name which, as they claim, the genre’s lost in the passing decade. That’s why the mix refers to the 90′s scene – the time, when drum’n'bass inspired artists representing the whole variety of genres (artists like Bjork or David Bowie). Therefore, listening to this mix is not only pure entertainment but first of all a genuine artistic experience.
