Fabric is more than a club and a record label; its a musical institution. Thousands of ravers flock to the club every night it opens its doors and its played host to some of the world's hottest DJs and biggest parties. With the heads behind Fabric opening up Matter, it seems undeniable that they know exactly what they're doing.
But the purpose of this post isn't to champion Fabric, its to talk about a DMC Champion; DJ A-trak. A-Trak (Alain Macklovitch) became the youngest ever DMC Champion in 1997, aged just 15 and at the time was also the first Canadian champion.
Enough history for today though, its all about his new mix release; Fabriclive 45.
The tracklist features an eclectic mix of genres and styles, alongside all of the expected A-Trak releases (Shake It Down, Say Whoa, etc). The mix itself is creative with some nice juggles and tricks, most noticably on his remix of Boys Noize's Daft Punk-inspired "Oh!". I won't say too much about the mix as I think its best that you all go out, right now, buy it and listen to it...loud.
