Ben Sims to mix fabric 73

UK techno mainstay has packed a hefty 44 tracks into his mix CD which is due in December.

The Fabric mix series has largely focused on harder edged sounds this year, dipping into the popular Romanian minimal scene with contributions from Rhadoo and Petre Inspirescu, Parisian collective Appollonia and of course Sandwell District, with a contribution from Cassy perhaps the most accessible. Described by a wise techno sage in the Juno office as “like The Wizard, and tight with it too,” Ben Sims ensures the series ends 2013 with a figurative bang, with the London-based DJ and producer brandishing some two decades of experience in the UK techno scene.

Said to be influenced by the “perfect and elusive” environment of fabric’s Room 2, fabric 73 is the first commercially released mix from Sims in some five years which looks to be a diverse affair featuring tracks from L-Vis 1990, Chicago Skyway, Special Request and Robert Hood. A faintly ridiculous 44 tracks long, with 18 of them unreleased, the mix was laid down live in sections by Sims using three CDJs, with “Sims then poring over details, adding edits, and stitching the various parts together in Ableton to form a master mix”.

A press release for fabric 73 has the Theory Recordings founder stating, “fabric already plays a special role in my life as an DJ as it’s one of (my) fave places to play but now the mix CD takes it to the next level. I’m very happy and excited to be a part of the series and cement our relationship further.”

Fabric Records will release fabric 73 on December 2.
