2005 release. In the mid-'90s, a group of Swedish producers burst onto the techno scene. They forged crunching rhythms and firing "DJ tools," drawing influence from industrial bands as much as Detroit's golden era. At the movement's forefront was a producer set to become synonymous with his style, and one of the most in-demand DJs of the time -- Adam Beyer. Throughout the past decade since he emerged, Adam founded four record labels -- Drum Code, Code Red, Truesoul and Mad Eye -- and remixed Underworld, Luke Slater and Carl Cox, among others. Fabric 22 shows an intriguing artist, always keen to progress his music and avoid stagnation, in fine form. Adam's newest project on Fabric Records blends the best in Swedish techno talent -- Joel Mull, Cari Lekebusch and Adam himself -- with internationally-acclaimed artists such as Steve Rachmad, Reinhard Voigt and Josh Wink. The opening track -- Wighnomy Brothers' remix of Slam and Tyrone Palmer -- captures the spirit of the mix perfectly: established names meet the new and lesser-known. Elsewhere, highlights include Ghostly International's Osborne getting groovy, Tim Track's warped "Panic Voice," and the album's centerpiece, Adam's own "Snuff & Noise." Using subtle effects, quick cuts and long blends, Adam brings us a stunning selection of the very best in European techno. Other artists include: DJ Minx, Alex Under, The Gadgets, Dominik Eulberg, Osborne, 2 Dollar Egg, Alex Long, Tony Rohr, David Roiseux, Hertz, Subway Baby, Tim Track, Hiem, and Mathew Jonson.
