Fabric Records will release two 10-inches featuring tracks from Rhadoo's Fabric 72.35 Comments
Fabric 72 was released back in October. It primarily collected unreleased material from lesser-known Romanian artists Rhadoo wanted to showcase. All of these were from the minimal house sphere, with contributions from names like SIT, Vlad Caia and Barac Nicolae. The upcoming samplers will give the public a chance to own full tracks that would've otherwise remained property of a small group of Romanians and their affiliates. Cuts from Adrian Niculae and Yourayo will feature on the first, while Traian Chereches and Vlad Caia are on the second. Both records are due out in late January, and will be limited to 300 copies each.
Adrian Niculae – Contrast
Yourayo - Blueprint
A Traian Chereches - Fast Lane
B Vlad Caia – Ticktockclockityclock
Fabric Records will release the fabric 72 vinyl samplers on January 27th.

The dance music calendar's biggest night and day are rapidly approaching as 2013 comes to a close. As you'd expect, dozens of quality acts will be passing through Melbourne this New Year's period to play in a variety of the city's best spots.
There are a few intimate options on the cards for NYE. Techno fans can check out Billion Underground's Black party, held at a TBA inner-city warehouse location, with CLR producer Drumcell heading up a bill that also includes IF? Records boss Sebastian Bayne and BU residents Lorenzo and Matt Van Diemen. Up at The Toff In Town, Andee Frost will be hosting an entirely homegrown House De Frost lineup comprising Zanzibar Chanel, Andras Fox, Michael Ozone and Misty Nights, promising a lengthy session of leftfield disco explorations. Similarly, Midnight Juggernauts are taking the all-Melbourne approach at The Prince for a Siberia Records party with Roland Tings, Nile Delta, Naysayer & Gilsun and John Safran mysteriously appearing as DJ Dollywood.
January 1st brings a flock of internationals into town. Let Them Eat Cake 2014 kicks off at 11 AM, taking over Werribee Park with a range of house, techno, bass and disco acts like Eglo's Floating Points, Hyperdub boss Kode9 and LA beatsmith TOKiMONSTA. Head over to the RA stage where we'll have James Holden, DJ Koze and Julio Bashmore spinning among others. The Animals Dancing crew will also be putting on a multi-stage party at a West Melbourne warehouse with names like Big Strick, Tom Of England (AKA Rub N Tug's Thomas Bullock) and L.I.E.S. producer Willie Burns as well as local staples Tornado Wallace, Otologic and Sleep D who will play live. Just nearby at Central Pier's Peninsula, Welcome Summer 2014 will be headlined by New York veteran Danny Tenaglia, who will be appearing in the country for the first time in four years.

Another year is about to wrap up and, as always, that's the cue for a host of international and local acts to congregate in Sydney for a huge 48-hour party block. From clubs to festivals to boats, there's plenty to choose from this New Year's.
After rumoured venue troubles and a recent relocation for their 15th birthday, Sydney institution Mad Racket returns to their long-term home, the Marrickville Recreation Centre, for a NYE show with Detroit mainstay Big Strick, who makes his Australian debut alongside the party's residents and guest Claire Morgan. Moving a bit closer to the city, Border Community boss James Holden will be playing an extended set at the Abercrombie Hotel for their usual Strange Fruit night which also sees local favourites Phil Smart and Trinity joining the lineup.
If you're looking to get right into the midst of the CBD action, pop up to The Ivy to catch New York legend Danny Tenaglia headlining Lost & Found with retro house purveyors Bicep and Swiss producer Cyril Hahn. For the best views of the harbour, the MCA is about as good as you'll get and will once again be the spot for Fact's NYE Mobilee Rooftop Session with label regulars Ray Okpara and Miss Jools playing until the early hours.
For those keen to keep the celebrations going, the annual Spice Afloat cruise will be boarding down at Star City Wharf at 4 AM on January 1st, ready to set sail around Sydney Harbour with Audiojack and Lovebirds soundtracking the first sunrise of 2014 with support from the club's residents Murat Kilic, Robbie Lowe and Softwar. The boat returns to shore at 10 AM in time for a slew of day parties kicking off at noon.
The seventh edition of Field Day, Fuzzy's NYD festival offering, will be back at The Domain with a wide variety of artists on the bill including Julio Bashmore, Dusky, Jacques Greene and Shadow Child. Space Ibiza also returns to The Greenwood Hotel in North Sydney for the fifth year in a row with Yousef, the Crazy P Soundsystem and Audiojack as well more than a dozen locals filling the venue's side rooms. Back up at The Ivy Pool, Lost Disco will be in session with DJ Koze, Wolf + Lamb and Soul Clap all featuring on the lineup which runs late into the night.
There are some more intimate options available on NYD, including S.A.S.H at the Abercrombie Hotel. While their headliner remains unannounced, house and techno will be provided by Kris Wadsworth and Trus'me along with a collection of the party's usual suspects. For the disco heads, Soul of Sydney will be hosting a gig at an undisclosed inner-city venue with Phil Hudson, Phil Toke and several other regulars.

Ewan Pearson has a handful of American shows coming up later this month.
Ewan Pearson is respected for his measured and melodic take on house music, most recently showcased on 2010's We Are Proud Of Our Choices mix CD for Kompakt. He's also a producer, though he's probably better known for his work behind the mixing desk for artists like Tracey Thorn and Delphic.
His latest US jaunt is his third and final of the year, following a string of gigs in April and a single Philadelphia stop in September. First up he'll hit the next YYYNYC party in New York this coming Friday, the series' second event after launching in October. From there he'll hit Miami a week later, playing at the Electric Pickle, and then SF the weekend after for As You Like It's massive Ugly Sweater party, alongside Mathew Jonson and others.
Check out a recent mix by Pearson for Manchester's Islington Mills here.
Tickets for the NYC, Miami and San Francisco parties are available on RA.

Brandt Brauer Frick have mixed the next edition of the DJ-Kicks series for !K7.1 Comment
The mix's tracklist is an across-the-board selection. The opening stages features the likes of Jan Jelinek, Theo Parrish and African musician William Onyeabor, before things take a more club-friendly turn via French Fries, Cosmin TRG, MMM and Jam City. "I definitely think the mix shows a different side of us,” says Paul Frick, one third of the trio. "I think people will be surprised. Some songs are certainly very different from what we do, things we would love to express, but can’t or don’t want to do it the way it’s done in these songs. But actually you can hear a lot of elements that are similar to something we did or will do, but in our songs we mostly look for different sound aesthetics and would combine that element with something else. And the switch between 4/4 kicks and more broken beats is something we do a lot, on our records and on this mix." The mix also contains several tracks that exclusive to the mix from artists including Dollkraut, Cosmin TRG and Brandt Brauer Frick themselves.
01. Jan Jelinek - HipBird
02. Inkswel - Australaborialis
03. Theo Parrish - Electric Alleycat

Few nations party as hard as the Brits, and many of the UK's best promoters have events lined up this New Year's. This roundup picks out the best event happening outside of London, from Bristol to Liverpool to Glasgow.
West and Wales
Two Bristol institutions, Just Jack and Futureboogie, have teamed up to host a NYE bash with Move D, Felix Dickinson and local favourites Outboxx at Empire Theatre, while the Wide Eyes NYE Spectacular will get down to the house grooves of Huxley. Staying in Bristol, In:Motion's celebrations span two days: on New Year's Eve they've got Zed Bias and T. Williams performing, and they'll back that up on New Year's Day with an even bigger party, headlined by Seth Troxler.
The Warehouse Project will sign off for 2013 with a party on New Year's Eve featuring Sasha, James Zabiela, Tensnake and Tiga. They will also host a monster NYD event that features an ample helping of back-to-back sets, including Dixon B2B Âme, Paul Woolford B2B Midland and Ben UFO B2B Joy Orbison. The other big Manchester bash sees a selection of house music royalty—Frankie Knuckles, Todd Terry and Marshall Jefferson—head up the Haçienda night at Albert Hall.
Over in Leeds, chart-topping duo Disclosure will play NYE at Canal Mills—the same venue will also host a huge mono_cult event on NYD with Levon Vincent, Mano Le Tough, Pearson Sound, Breach, Midland and Optimo. Moving on to Liverpool, local promoters Chibuku and Abandon Silence will team up for a December 31st blowout with Dense & Pika and Krystal Klear among others.
In addition to their Leeds gig, Disclosure will also appear at Gatecrasher Birmingham on December 31st, while Spotlight plays host to a strong house contingent led by Leif and Flori. In Nottingham, Wigflex will celebrate with Randomer and regulars Spam Chop and Morris Cowan, while the pick of the NYD parties goes down in Birmingham, with Point G keeping it deep at Rainbow Venues.
Glaswegians could do far worse than spend Hogmanay in the confines of Sub Club, where resident DJs Harri & Domenic will be joined by Andrew Weatherall, while Offbeat and Notsosilent will descend on La Cheetah Club with Tiger & Woods and Space Dimension Controller in tow. Soma bosses Slam will travel to Aberdeen to bring in the New Year in suitably pumping fashion at Snafu.

The club listings for New Year's in London are frankly intimidating. To help, we've narrowed down some of the best events happening around the capital on December 31st and January 1st. While this is by no means a complete party guide to NYE and NYD—we'd need several thousand more words for that—we hope it'll set you on the right path.
Our roundup begins in Brixton with the Secretsundaze party, which features one of the best lineups you'll see anywhere in the city on December 31st: Levon Vincent, Shed, Point G, Tim Sweeney and DJ TLR are all locked in, as are party residents Giles Smith and James Priestley. Staying south of the river, the Trouble Vi5ion NYE bash at Corsica Studios can be filed as one for the heads—Theo Parrish will play a five-hour set, with Maurice Fulton (who will be playing as the clock strikes 12), Anthony Naples and Mr Beatnick joining him on the bill.
Over in Wapping, The Hydra kicks off their New Year's double-header with a Bugged Out! collaboration at Studio Spaces, with Erol Alkan, Daniel Avery and Ivan Smagghe; they'll also throw a New Year's Day bash, with Dixon, Âme and Move D at Fire. Half Baked will take over a TBA spot in East London with minimal don Baby Ford and Bruno Pronsato, while Krankbrother have invited Scuba, Guti, Shonky, Matt Tolfrey and Appleblim to spin at their NYE bash at Park Royal Studios in NW10.
Dollop will take over the Troxy, with Ben UFO, Joy Orbison, Paul Woolford, Jackmaster, Oneman and Loefah. Fabric, meanwhile, will offer house in Room One (Dyed Soundorom, The Martinez Brothers) and techno in Room Two (DVS1, Skudge, Anthony Parasole).
If you're after something more intimate, Plastic People will offer a hundred or so clubbers the chance to bring in 2014 to the sounds of Nick Höppner, while the Love Fever crew will deck out an East London gallery space in their trademark style. Rhythm Section, the South London party we profiled earlier this year, will ring in 2014 with an "all vibes, all vinyl" night at their spiritual home, Canavan's Peckham Pool Club. The excellent World Unknown party will host its second NYE bash, with residents Andy Blake and Joe Hart presiding over the evening at a TBA venue somewhere in South London.
New Year's Day is a haven for partygoers looking to avoid the lines and general excess of New Year's Eve, a fact reflected by the ever-growing number of parties taking place. Bloc will return to Autumn Street Studios with Kowton and L.I.E.S. pair Ron Morelli and Svengalisghost, while the LWE bash at Tobacco Dock features Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex and tINI. Circo Loco hits The Coronet with Davide Squillace, Tale Of Us and a load more, and back at Corsica Studios, Tief will serve up a feast of disco and house with Todd Terje, Jay Shepheard, Daniel Wang and October. Nofitstate's bash kicks off at 6 PM at an undisclosed location, with Midland and Dense & Pika on the bill.

It's a known truth that Italians go mad for dance music. Whether it be ear-splitting techno or sensuous deep house, there are pockets of activity up and down the country. 2013's New Year's round-up reflects that diversity.
Starting in Rome, New Year's Eve celebrations will be mainly geared towards two large-scale events: Palazzo dei Congressi featuring Paul Kalkbrenner, Seth Troxler and Maceo Plex and Amore Music Experience at Nuova Fiera Di Roma. The latter will bring together a slew of high-profile names across 12 hours, including Sven Väth, Marcel Dettmann, Ricardo Villalobos, Jon Hopkins, Ben Klock and Function.
Klock and Dettmann have also been booked for appearances at Tenax in Florence, with Chris Liebing's CLR imprint hosting the city's other big celebration at Obihall. Over in Terracina, roughly 90 minutes south of Rome, Redshape and Raffaele Antasio will perform for Evoluzione, while on the opposite coast in Pescara, deep houser Sven Weisemann headlines Tipografia.
In the north, dominant superclub Cocorico will stick by its heavyweight formula, inviting Loco Dice and Chris Liebing to man the 12-hour celebration. Showroom, located on the outskirts of Padua, is keeping to an all-female theme, inviting Nina Kraviz, Magda, Janina and Bloody Mary to spin, while two US legends will perform in Bologna and Verona respectively: Jeff Mills at Link and Fred P at Suburban.
In Milan, you could either go for the Minus-heavy bash at East End Studios Milano, where Richie Hawtin, Gaiser and Hobo will all appear, or head to Dude Club if you like your techno a little rougher round the edges: Rødhåd, Samuel Kerridge and Sigha have all been confirmed. Down south, Davide Squillace heads up the pick of the parties, taking over Mob Discotheatre in Villagrazia di Carini, Palermo.

From the 12 grapes at midnight to the follow morning's breakfast of chocolate con churros, New Year's is a big deal in Spain. For the younger generation, a night on the tiles is a must. Whether it be electro nights in Barcelona or house and techno all-dayers on the outskirts of Madrid, there's plenty to choose from.
Starting with New Year's Eve, Mondo will welcome Michael Mayer to the Spanish capital, with support coming from resident pairing Borderline. Barcelona offers a wider range, with Kerri Chandler spinning at KER Club, Dan Ghenacia turning out for Club4 and party-starting duo 2ManyDJs topping the bill as part of a high-profile event at Teatre Principal on Las Ramblas. For fans of more leftfield sounds, Sex Tags Mania chief DJ Fett Burger will join Cardopusher at Adriantic in the nearby city of Sant Adrià de Besòs, which is easily reachable by road and public transport.
While perhaps not the first place you'd associate with New Year's, Ibiza isn't without a noteworthy party or two. Following on from a record-breaking second season, Music On will throw its first end-of-year bash at Amnesia, with Jamie Jones, Pan-Pot and Leon joining Marco Carola on the Terrace. Meanwhile for the more commercially-minded, Riva Starr has been booked to man proceedings at Pacha.
In the north, Lovejoy will team back up with Oscar Mulero for a bash at El Jardin 2 in Gijón. The Spanish techno veteran has been booked for a three-hour set, with support from Logannn! and Matias Valdmont. At the other end of the country, national treasure Cristian Varela will spin at Paris 15 in Malaga as part of Electroyear Festival.
Rolling on into New Year's Day, it'll hard to look past the inaugural edition of Madrid Winter Festival. Taking place approx. 40 minutes outside of the capital in Moralzarzal, Richie Hawtin, Paul Kalkbrenner, Scuba, Chris Liebing, Loco Dice and Gaiser will all gather for the 15-hour marathon. Also on the outskirts of Madrid, two of the city's heavyweight outfits—Replay and Reverse— will team up for an event at Groove Dance Club. Matthias Tanzmann, Paul Ritch, Technasia and Tom Demac have all been confirmed.
Elsewhere, Elrow and Minus will join forces at KER Club in Barcelona, with Richie Hawtin, Gaiser, Hobo and Matador all on the bill. On the White Isle, Circoloco returns, with residents Jamie Jones, Cassy, Dyed Soundorom, Dan Ghenacia and Shonky performing alongside a rare DC-10 outing from Sven Väth. Tania Vulcano, who's also been booked for Circoloco, will then make the journey to Cadiz, where she heads up an Ibiza-themed affair at Ohju Club alongside Jose De Divina and Pacha resident Angel Linde.
