Sebastian Devaud's installment of the esteemed mix series is due for release next month.
Sebastian Devaud has a particular flair with mix CDs. As past efforts like Cute & Cult, At The Controls and especially last year's Balance 016 made clear, he's not content to just string a bunch of good songs together. He prefers to stay involved, sometimes layering several tracks into the mix at once and making as many unlikely combinations as possible.
"Even if I'm playing a lot of techno in my DJ set I always manage to try to mix tracks that are not supposed to fit together," he says. "Here I was happy to create a remix live of Ella Fitzgerald mixed with four other tracks for example–or to arrange a new 'Speechless' vocal version with Sun Ra, a trio with Carl Craig and La Scalars."
Fabric 57 is divided into 20 tracks, though the mix itself is much more complex than that: the first track weaves together three songs at once, and a few others are used as recurring motifs throughout the mix, including STL's "Silent State" and Lil Tony's remix of "Treehouse." It arrives hot on the heels of Agoria's latest album, Impermanence, which came out last month through Infine, the label he co-founded in 2006.
