Click. Click click. Bass thump. Fax noise.

Its been a bit like that recently hasn't it? Stripped down repetitive grooves wearing you down? Perhaps this is the solution.

This is the first Fabric in a good long while that hooks you in to see where the next turn takes you. Bug takes you on a journey through tech house that against the grain of current vogue, isn't centered around off-centred metronome timings, beats clicks and bass only mentalities and 'more abstract than thou' snobbery. I feel that this mix feels rather more like (dare I say it), Danny Tenaglia when he was at his peak. Low down funky tech house one moment before swinging into an afrocentric vocal groove and then leaving you on fire with a totally unnessasary and silly wobbly bassline (thank you Mikael Stavostrand, thank you...).

Exactly what you want to hear from a mix. Total disregard to stay within set boundaries of 'you must play Trapez progressive only' or 'must not contain vocals whatsoever' which in the end, stifles and kills off the flames of the current bright burning fashionable genre of the moment.

In the relentless monthly onslaught of Fabric CDs, this is certainly one that house fans should give some time to.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable mix. I've had it for a few months now and its always nice to come back to it and discover something new about it. It never gets boring as there's feeling of constant flow and clever changes throughout. The mixing is beguiling in places and quite often you realise you've ended up somewhere you didn't expect, in a refreshing way. Steve Bug has that unknown quantity that sets the best Dj's apart. Recommended.

This is an unadventurous and derivative mix. It's almost entirely the kind of dull tech-house by numbers that I expect from the smug W1/EC1 set. By contrast, the Carl Craig Fabric mix or the Global Comms have personality, flair and taste, as well as being well rocking. The only exception on the Steve Bug mix is from the one artist on there whom I have the greatest respect: Charles Webster, who does a truly gorgeous, funky, trippy, uplifting remix that should have been the blueprint for the rest of Bug's mix.
