3.0 out of 5 stars Not the usual Fabric fayre 19 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a bit different from recent Fabric releases which have been largely Minimal Techno or Tech house. This is a good old fashioned house set, funky and warm. In that context it's pretty good. It's a bit flat in places but pleasant enough listen, if a bit like background music in a bar. However the last few tracks are the best, I even detected a version of the electro riff from "Planet Rock" in there somewhere! Not cutting edge then but as a buyer of predominantly Electro & Tech House this made a nice change.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hello Mark! 9 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is my first purchase of Mark Farina, having recently (and rather by accident) heard a cd called Mushroom Jazz mixed by him. This is House Music the way I remember it. Not too many tweaks and blips and getting lost in all the electronica. This is equally suitable for dancing your head off, or just chilling by yourself. Soothing and invigorating at the same time, I cannot recommend it enough. Last few tracks the pace gets a bit wild and that explains the 4 stars. Otherwise a wholesome experience.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixture of strong and weak, dance and chill, fun and disappointing 17 Sep 2008
By Globalaza - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I have always been a fan of Mark Farina as well as a fan of the Fabric series. I am glad the two have met to create a fun and funky set that demonstrates what house music can be all about. Fabric 40 has hints of old school hip-hop, and danceable beats that remind you of a cool Chicago or underground New York house party where you can intently listen to the music, chill out with it in the background or pump it loud enough for the neighbors to call the police.

Unfortunately, there are quite a few weaks spots on the disk that really don't live up to either Mark Farina or Fabric. It seems that he lets the computer take over and he doesn't control the music, instead letting tracks linger a bit too long, or become a bit too repetitious.

I enjoyed the hints of a playas ball, that invoked visions of runways divas sashaying down a catwalk at some underground fashion show. The imagery is good and it sounds like he is having fun.

Some of the hip-hop/house elements seem a bit contrived, such as the continual (and continuously annoying) "pick up what I'm puttin' down..." vocal just grains on the nerves. Even the otherwise clever straight vocal voice-over of "many tunes were brought by colonists," history lesson gets old rather quickly. Annoying alarm clock sounds NEVER make a good mix [on Track #17] and make you reach for the skip button on the cd/mp3 player.

The cd gets 3 stars because when it is good, it is really fun; but when it is weak, it's pretty bad. If you are a Farina fan, you should add it to your collection, but be prepared to skip a few tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mark Farina is a genious. Glad I own this CD. 14 Oct 2008
By P. Barriga - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Yes - Mark Farina - he is great - and this CD is great. "Mushroom this and weak that" the other reviewers say --- a little too much "been there and done that" in my view.

Again - I feel that this selection of music is tight and perhaps to "tight". Somewhat low variability and .... wait that's supposed to a sign of quality.... I am very happy with this CD.

I saw Roger Sanchez live in Montreal last week.... great and different. I want to see Mark Farina live in Montreal - so how about it Mark??

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel Good, Dance Your Soul 23 Sep 2008
By John Tripp - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Mark Farina is a kind of Johnny Appleseed of house music, planting trees and spreading the seed of good feelings and uptempo grooves. While house music continues to mutate, Farina evolves and grows. Fusing the laid-back vibes of San Francisco and the jackin' sounds of Chicago, bringing the Midwest and West coast to some kind of smooth, sunny middle ground, Mark Farina takes fabric 40 by the helm and steers it down an astonishing, picturesque route. Mixed lovingly by hand, this buoyant, essential summer soundtrack swells and melds with the head-nodding sounds of Derrick Carter, JT Donaldson & Uneaq, DJ Sneak and King Kooba. A great way to spend a couple of hours!

4.0 out of 5 stars A little different 4 Aug 2008
By J Hamster - Published on
Format:Audio CD
It's not fair, but I always measure Mark Farina cd releases to the Mushroom Jazz standard. I just really dig those discs, that style, that music, the sensibility. However, the man has wider tastes than I do, to his credit. This is a jackin' house cd. And I like it.

It is a funky and fun mix. The first song in particular is one of the most exhilarating tunes I've ever heard on a Farina mix. The middle of the cd drags a bit for my tatses, is repetitious, but maybe it's the jackin' house style that can't sustain my interest throughout. But it picks up agan and finishes with a flourish.

Now I must comment on something that has absolutely nothing to do with the music: The packaging of this cd is ridiculous. A difficult to open metal box, a folded paper insert that is not tucked to prevent movement, and really no place to secure the cd. What in the world were they thinking? Stupid.
