Product Description

BBC Review

The 59th edition of the FabricLive mix series might just be the most 'live' sounding of all, interspersed as it is with field recordings made at the London club. Hearing muffled drums and chattering voices is not unlike moving from room to room within Fabric's cavernous interior. Even on its most eclectic nights, however, you might not be likely to hear grime following 30-year-old synthesizer experimentalism, or rare acid house twitching along beside even rarer stripped-down garage.

Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet, casts this mix as being "about London and Fabric and nights out and my take on all that. The memories and the influences." It's not, he stresses, "about my DJing." Just as well, as this is far from smooth as a mix. But flow is sacrificed with good reason. For straight-up genre DJs 75 minutes is long enough to craft a dynamic set. For those with wider tastes, however, the range of styles tends to need shrinking for coherence's sake. But with the glut of mixes that are available for free online, Hebden is right to think that presenting a distinct musical vision is more valuable than getting the listener from start to finish with as few bumps as possible.

It's a decision that pretty much pays off, the result more a collage than a traditional mix. After the opening sounds of passing traffic and mumbling voices have faded away into the blissful electronic trickles of Michel Redolfi's 1981 track Immersion Partielle, the mix eases into a mini-set of 2-step, grime and UK funky. Hebden's been around long enough to plot accurate lines between past and present, so while tracks like Genius' Waiting (1998), Apple's Mr Bean (2007) and Floating Points' Sais (dub) (2011) span more than a decade, there's plenty of connective tissue linking one to another.

Halfway through the mix resets: another field recording, another synth number from 1981. As with the Redolfi track, David Borden's The Continuing Story of Counterpoint, Part Nine represents something of a false start, trilling into silence before being replaced by the stark Hoover techno of STL's Dark Energy. Nevertheless this section contains the best actual transition between tracks, as the crumbling, organ-like tones of Burial's Street Halo rise above the competing buzzes of Angie's F***ed by C++.

Then the mix hiccoughs again, Street Halo fading away completely before the raw vintage garage of KMA's Cape Fear jumpstarts the final section. Veering between the retro rave of WK7's Higher Power, the muffled shuffle of Villalobos' Sieso and Armando Gallop and Steve Poindexter's paranoid acid house, the mix ends only for a new Four Tet track, the pleasant Locked (one of two new productions from Hebden here), to emerge like an encore. Typically of the mix, it's a dislocating moment that's largely redeemed by the quality of the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars 's all about the drumz bruvz 27 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
As an old skool raver fast approaching the big 40 I don't listen to much in the way of yoof music any more. The kids love it and good for them, but these days I'd rather have a cup of tea and a bit of Nick Cave. But now and then an album or a mix comes along that reminds you why you used to love a bit of 'big fish, little fish'. I've only got into Four Tet over the last year or so and not in a big way; 'Rounds' was my first which took a while but is now a real fave, and I got well into 'There is Love in You' and also picked up his 'Late Night Tales' CD which was all over the place (in a good way!!). So a Fabric mix with a fella wearing an octopus on the cover definitely caught my eye.

But then the reviews started to leak out, 'all dub step and glitchy garage', 'badly mixed' 'too fragmented' etc. So I approached this mix with real trepidation...and... I like it!

Fabric 59 reminds me of nothing less than listening to pirate radio in the early 90's. I used to go to mainly Balearic clubs and the odd big rave, but the pirates oop north often played darker and more awkward stuff, tunes that just wouldn't fly in the clubs but made for compelling listening in the house. That's exactly the flavour this mix gives me, a set of deep, dark underground tunes mixed by a maverick with the rozzers about to break through the door. The effect is enhanced by the choice of some of the samples in the tracks (Terence Trent (as used by Shut Up and Dance way back), Kid & Play for example, and I like the mixing style. Sure its a bit rough at times but then so were some of the most well loved mixes back in the day, the shear audacity of a DJ trying to cut a couple of really at-odds tracks together, and actually a few of the mixes here are pretty smart.

There's not too many producers or DJs that when asked to do a mix for a club would send their audio engineer friend (Sasha Lewis) into the club in question to make field recordings and then incorporate those recordings into the finished mix. Well Four Tet did. Just to make his life more difficult during the compilation process every track is also recorded from original vinyl which meant long hours searching for long forgotten and hard to find records. It also meant he had to go and cut acetates of his own exclusive tracks.

If that isn't attention to detail enough when the tracks were then recorded from vinyl they weren't digitally cleaned so the original hiss, pop and crackle of the wax was retained. The final mix was then surprisingly put together on a new fangled computer thingy, which from a sad trainspotter point of view, spoils slightly the analogue, old school vibe but is understandable. We'll forgive him just this once.

The music ranges from the experimental electronics of Michel Redolfi's 'Immersion Partielle', seminal UK funky in the form of Apple's 'Mr. Bean', the classic grime of Youngstar's 'Pulse X' to the fresher sounds of Burial's 'Street Halo'. Also expect to hear C++, Caribou, Floating Points, Ricardo Villalobos weaving in and out of the mix. These tracks are then split up by the aforementioned field recordings to recreate the feel of walking around the different rooms during a night out at Fabric.

The mix is a representation of Hebden's club sets rather than his more musical production side. Melody and vocals are stripped back, dubs largely the order of the day rather than full on vocals but what is never in short supply is musical adventure as he trawls through the boundary pushing, largely UK side of progressive dance music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Different 2 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this off the back of some tracks four get have featured on and of the reviews, but it didn't really do what i wanted it too and the sound wasn't what I was expecting from them either. It has its moments and maybe I've not given it enough air time, but wasn't the flow I'm into, but it is different and creative with some very well read reviews.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Feeling this mix 9 Jan 2012
By Jon
Format:Audio CD
Being a big fan of Four Tet I was pretty excited to here this mix. Then reading one reviewers complaint about "clicky UK garage" I got even more excited still, being a fan of the more garagey and experimental sides of the dubstep genre and more recently garage itself.

This is definitely not similar to Four Tets own production output but it's still great. Lots of really nice deep groovy tracks and well sequenced. So for anyone with an interest in left field but still very funky UK bass music this is highly recommended.

Enjoy :)
