2011 release. Boasting a CV that would leave most aspiring artists weak at the knees, young North Londoner David Kennedy, who operates under several monikers including Pearson Sound and Ramadanman, has been steadily adding accomplishments to his already substantial list since hitting the scene in 2006. Kennedy has dropped a slew of 12" records on game-changing bass music labels like Swamp 81, Hemlock, Aus, Applepips, and Soul Jazz, as well as on his very own Hessle Audio -- which he runs alongside friends Ben UFO and Pangaea. Starting off with some Rush Hour-type deep house and the Panoramabar anthem, "Late Night Jam," FabricLive.56 quickly gets a little more upbeat. While utilizing the infectious bass lines from tough UK funky numbers like Lil' Silva's "Bad Girl" remix, he manages to avoid the usual hyperactive nature of funky sets, allowing each groove adequate time to snake into the next, jumping between tempos but always keeping it deep with the haunting vocals of Joy Orbison and even a timely staccato verse from Wiley. It's the simplicity with which he acknowledges all his influences, from the sub-bass heavy D1 classic "Subzero" to the dubbed-out ethereal garage of Burial (with his own Detroit-influenced drums strewn throughout) that gives the mix such a pulsating intensity. Other artists include: Levon Vincent, Elgato, Marcello Napoletano, Tiyiselani Vomaseve, Julio Bashmore, J:Kenzo, Fugative, Rob Kemp, A Made Up Sound, Jam City, Mr. Mageeka, Pangaea, MJ Cole, Pinch, Die Barbie Musik Kollektiv, Girl Unit, S-X, Addison Groove, Mala (Digital Mystikz), Joe, and Sigha.
