It's been a year and change since booty breaks duo The Stanton Warriors were earmarked for a Fabric comp, and now it’s just around the corner. ‘FabricLive 30’ is set to roll out mid-October.
In 2001 the Warriors' first mix ‘The Stanton Session’ mashed up the likes of The Streets and Busta Rhymes, and it remains the highest-selling breaks comp to this day. After laying low for a few years, they bounced back in 2005 with their bootleg refix of ‘Feel Good Inc’ by Gorillaz and a collaboration with Chicago rapper Twista ‘Pop Ya Cork’, both of which went up for Breakspoll Awards. Last year they also dropped ‘Stanton Sessions Vol. 2’, the first disc of which was a genre-defying comp, and the second disc a collection of original productions.
On ‘FabricLive 30’ Dom and Mark again display their ironclad work ethic. The album includes four cuts from ‘SS2’, but not as you might know them: 'Pop Ya Cork' douses their 2001 chart-topper 'Da Virus', while the Eska vocals from downtempo track ‘Still Here’ get a massive breaks foundation with Baobinga & ID's 'The Machine'. The Warriors also lend their breaks-heavy refix treatment to tech house cuts like Peace Division's 'Club Therapy' and Claude Von Stroke's 'Who's Afraid of Detroit?'.
"All the tracks on the Fabric mix are edited by etching stuff from loads of different scenes and putting our beats and other elements underneath them," explains Dom. “Most of the tracks are ours though. I think a kind of late night minimal booty would be the word for it."
Fellow breaks boffins Deekline & Wizard lend a hand by remixing the Warriors' ‘Dip & Get Low’, while the Warriors themselves remix Wahoo's 'Make 'Em Shake It' and King Unique's 'To The Left'. There's also a brand-new production, the score-sampling 'Bollywood Beatdown'. All in a night's work at Fabric, it appears.
