FABRICLIVE 20th Birthday
Written by Aaron Holden
The UK's most famous club has been celebrating its 20th birthday with some frankly ridiculous lineups, and this was one of the best we have witnessed yet. FABRICLIVE, Souped Up Records and Lifestyle Music all blessed the iconic nightclub with a combination of some underground legends and some of the hottest up and comers.
The fact that the club was shut down, revived and has survived long enough to celebrate its 20th birthday is something which should be celebrated across the underground music scene. Fabric is the embodiment of the UK underground for many, and it is showing no signs of slowing down. As the doors opened, Cimm wasted no time in getting things rolling in with some Dubstep bassweight for your chestplate. Voltage and MC AD rose through the gears as the Souped Up takeover began to fill the room. Double drops and euphoric vocals shook the floorboards in classic Voltage style.
Imanu's brand new track 'Nonplus' blew the lid off Room 2, check it out below.
We we're spoilt for choice from 1-2AM. Rusko was melting faces in Room 1, whilst T>I b2b Dutta were showcasing their finest selection of dubplates w/Shaydee & Deemas J on mic. Rusko never fails to put on a show, his energy levels behind the decks are infectious and resonate through the crowd. It's refreshing to see a DJ go as wild as Rusko does. If a crowd sees an artist letting loose, they are likely to give less f*cks themselves and go equally as ham. Don't be that guy who's trying to look cool.
T>I b2b Dutta was seriously special, with dubplate after dubplate being reeled off by the pair.
