#savefabric (mixed by Terry Francis)
fabric + Houndstooth present an overwhelming 111-track compilation, representing the full spectrum of electronic music that the club has housed for 17 years. A perfect embodiment of everything fabric is and stands for.
About this mix
Terry: I was given the final masters just last week. It was a lot to digest but was immediately blown away by the standard everyone delivered over such a short period of time. As a resident of the club of 17 years, it has meant so much to me to see all these artists get behind us, so it was actually a bit of an emotional process recording the mix.
Ultimately the track selection came down to my choice of what I felt worked within the mix and still reflects all the different sounds of fabric over the years. I feel bad for not being able to include them all on here but with over nine hours of music that would be been an impossible task.
Rob: The past three weeks have flown by. Managing this compilation with Rob Butterworth, label boss here at fabric Records, and Melissa Taylor over in Berlin from inception to finished master has been a personal highlight of mine in what has been quite a shitty year. Artists on this comp and those too busy with touring commitments have been incredible, giving up a considerable amount of their own time to make something truly amazing for us. We salute you.
Roll on November 28th for the court case. Please support #savefabric.
