2012 release. When it comes to techno, there are few cities on the planet that have embraced and upheld the raw, foundational roots laid down by its pioneers more so than Berlin. One of the center-most characters in this movement is the inimitable Berghain resident, Ben Klock. Fabric 66 reflects both his love of classic house and techno productions as well as his passion for unearthing new and unreleased music, as his friends were personally invited to submit rare and exclusive tracks for the purposes of this very special Fabric mix. Josh Wink, Robert Hood (as Floorplan), DVS1, Technasia, and Luke Slater (as Planetary Assault Systems), may all be familiar names but the track selection is clearly that of a die-hard DJ and producer who has spent a lifetime crate-digging, looking for those rare gems. The introduction of UK dubstep hero Burial creates an even more intriguing dialog, fitting the classic production of the old-school with the future sounds of rising talent. Other noteworthy appearances include brand-new Mathew Jonson, Sigg Gonzalez, and Vlek Records' Sagat, who provides incredibly teasing minimalist touches to the modulating oscillations of the overall product. Ben's original productions, edits and reworkings perforate the mix alongside cuts from his signature Klockworks imprint, but these remain purposefully fleeting instances, executed to add moments of balance and transition. Other artists include: Truncate, DJ Bone, Trevino, K-Hand, Octave One, Wincent Kunth, Sigg Gonzalez, D-Knox, Marcel Dettmann, Steve Rachmad, Staffan Linzatti, Terence Fixmer, James Ruskin, and Alva Noto.
