At a time when club anthems and D&B floor killers reign supreme in the clubs, Fabric maintains their impeccable pedigree by releasing a refreshing and incredibly eye-opening release consisting of hip-hop, break beats, dancehall and even a bit of garage flavor. FabricLive 20: Joe Ransom has the fun and spirit of an early 90’s rave with a modern day sound for which it’s titled super-venue is known.
Ransom has blessed us with the sounds of Zinc, Rodney P., Stanton Warriors, Tayo and Dizzee Rascal amongst many others. On the front end of this release you’ll find some real hip-hop gems such as Pablo’s “Turntable Technology” and Evil Ed’s “Nico Suave”. On the tail end funky bass lines mesh perfectly with quirky synth lines and quite frequently a catchy vocal line.
From a track listing standpoint, Ransom has focused less on progressing the newest of the new and has rather compiled a group of tunes from the past few years and pieced them together in a fashion that will having you grooving from the downbeat.
This compilation screams fun and excitement for which Fabric is known and is enough to satisfy the musical appetite of any fan of dance music no matter where their EDM allegiance may lie.
