Breakbeat lover Freq Nasty will be the next DJ honored with a release in the celebrated FabricLive series.
The Fiji-born has been associated with nu-school breaks, disco and even a little bit of hip-hop over the years and Freq's entry into the Fabric catalogue should be no different. From indie hip-hop (Cadence Weapon) to dub (Lee "Scratch" Perry) to dubstep (TRG) and beyond, Freq claims it’s a disc that's "bassline and breaks all the way through, just different permutations of them." Judging by the tracklisting below, we're inclined to believe him. The mix follows from Freq's 1998 effort Botchit Breaks and 2002's Y4K → FreQ Nasty - Next Level Breaks.
