I had never even heard of Rub-N-Tug when this CD arrived but I was encouraged by the tracklisting to see what they had come up with on this mix.

The actual mixing itself generally isn't anything special and it sounds like they used vinyl mostly so I suppose they can be forgiven for the simplistic style. The thing that sets this mix above many others like it is the choice of tracks they included. It starts off with really slow bumping house from Claude VonStroke, Royksop and Jesse Rose and moves into some more tripped out electro and deep house. It morphs nicely into the excellent trippy ambience of 'Blackmoon' by Force of Nature before building back up into the awesome 'Discopolis' before finishing on a minimal note with tracks from Ame and Mocky.

This mix is more interesting as a sum of its parts with only a few standout tracks but it really does take you on a musical journey. Another triumph for Fabric after a few boring mixes recently.

Like the reviewer above I didn't know Rub 'n' Tug when I got this. First listen: OK, just OK. Nice guitar work at the end. Since then, I'm bemused to say, it has become one of my favourite mixes of recent times. Its progression and moods really draw you in. If you read RnT's comments on Fabric's website they pass it off as just a party record, but it feels like more, like much thought has gone into it, particularly into track selection. And it starts with a voice samples from the Dean Tavolorius character from The League of Gentlemen series 3 - class.

The mixing, I thought, was actually quite good. There are far worse or less inspiring examples. Check out the mix from Let's Get Busy (a song I wanted to skip early on but which, like the album itself, grows on you) into what seems to be the song of the moment, Turkish Tavern. RnT's mixing skills are best demonstrated, however, when they merge the smooth, seductive vocals of Come a Little Closer into the gorgeous, trippy, reverb-heavy guitar tones of L'Asteroide - definitely the track of the album for me. Another top track is Discopolis, which really feels like a weighty end track, but the actual end to the mix is no disappointment either.

Another quality offering from Fabric who, at least for any long period of time, never seem to take their eye off the ball or saturate.

HASH(0x91a7421c) out of 5 stars One of the best in the Fabric collection 22 July 2009
By N. Spencer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I totally disagree with the other two 1star raters. Of course, it all down to personal taste. The 'catch a moment in time' remix is a good one but it certainly doesnt represent the overall story - its much more diverse, dark, hedonistic and with a little hint of disco. It has a feeling of 60's anarchism but uniquely done with a DJ professionalism that gives it class. Its the sort of music that really kicks off awesome parties and head-down-stomping fun, without being too depraved (until your here the 'move a little closer' track - reminds me a little of Grace Jone's feel up but plenty more seedy).
I have been looking for this sort of mix for a long time through a lot of this clicking and pop noise nonsense. I have always loved DJ Harvey! If you know him you will have a good idea of this album. Will certainly be looking out for them in future.
HASH(0x91a74270) out of 5 stars Any random small town WICKED warehouse. 27 Dec. 2013
By Boony - Published on Amazon.com

If you know WICKED crew, then you know the sound they bring to the HOUSE party. The one star reviews on here simply don't understand the roots of house, which is where Thomas and co. are coming from on here. The problem is, their sound was never meant to be commercial, and being on FABRIC sets the bar on a certain level which must appeal to a worldwide audience, but this was a Nor Cal warehouse party sound that was infamous in the early days of "rave" (ugh, I hate that word, but I can't think of a more proper way to distinguish a time). It's not disco, it's pre-Superstar DJ though.

Anywho, just my two cents on Rub-n-Tug. Regardless, this mix is exactly what it set out to be. Rugged, raunchy, and f%$&*ing good! Straight to the warehouse head!

HASH(0x91a74654) out of 5 stars Track #17 "Catch a Moment," 28 Jun. 2009
By Robert A. Newport - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I too was going to buy this album based on Track #17 "Catch a Moment," which I also heard online. Great song, and I would totally buy it, but don't make me buy a crappy album to get this track.

It's not 1999 anymore dude.
