Fabio is another one of those veteran DJ’s called upon by Fabric to add another diverse mix to the consistently brilliant Fabriclive series. Starting his trade in the mid 80’s laying down smooth funk, soul and acid cuts, this modern showcase of Fabio’s talents present a different story, with 70 minutes of fine drum and bass being the catch of the day.
An early highlight in the mix is the funked up beats and delicate vocals of “Share The Blame” by J Majik feat. Kathy Brown. Blended in nicely after this is the electro styles of Total Science’s “Squash”, while the twisted screeches continue with J Majik again, this time its “Tell Me” doing the damage. The mix contains a good steady flow, maintained by the Latin stylings of Danny C’s “The Mexican”. The smooth vocals and samba beats of Bebel Gilberto’s “So Nice” livens the mix up. It’s the way of vocals with “What U Don’t Know” by A Sides as the mix comes to a close, a job done by another solid production by Danny C with “Ace Face”.
Not a bad introspective into Fabio’s current drum and bass sound. The mix maintains a uptempo pace throughout, and enough diversity in the mix to maintain some interest. From the screechy electro drones to the party like drums, this mix is sure to please the drum and bass loyal. Another Fabric, another quality mix.
