Worth twice the price...,
This review is from: fabric29: Tiefschwarz (Audio CD)
I felt compelled to write a review of this mix as it would be a travesty should the uninitiated, minimal/electro-house connoisseurs of the world pass by what I believe is a seminal mix. I own virtually all the Fabric mixes and this one has stood the test of time in time-honoured fashion as one of the very best. In such exalted company that's high praise indeed. It follows in spirit the tone of the last few mixes which leans towards a more "Germanic" (for want of a better word) sound, selecting tracks borne out of or heavily-influenced by the Berlin labels which are home to the best that house has to offer.
The opening 5 or-so tracks, from "Anxiety" to "Bassic" are perfect, you will struggle not to be absorbed by the time the chugging bassline of Bassic drops in to the mix. I could eloborate further but others have done it with far more craft than I can muster now. Suffice to say, this really is one of those rare mixes that IS worth the money, you will go back for more time and again. And to those unfamiliar with the labels on show, this mix should launch you into a glorious journey of self-discovery about the whole scene (a vapid over-used word but apt in this instance) this mix showcases.
