2005 release. John Digweed is a masterful DJ. Given that he began playing in nightclubs at 16, it's probably only right he should be. Setting up his own night, and inviting his favorite DJs to play, years later, Bedrock events take place worldwide, and it has spawned a firmly established record label of the same name. John Digweed is now recognized as one of the world's greatest exponents of his profession, his name easily ranking alongside those of his influences. In addition, he's a broadcaster, a producer, a promoter, and an active A&R Executive, working hard to give new artists their first break, on decks or on vinyl. John Digweed's name is synonymous with lush, deep, engulfing frequencies that move through a mix in waves. Fabric 20 is bookended by two records containing them; 16b's kick-free re-work of Pete Moss, and Goldtrix' blissed-out version of Matrix & Danny J. In between, John builds and blends a stunning set, featuring tracks that challenge the preconception of his tastes. Adam Johnson's bass-driven "Traber" leads into Richard Davis' zany remix of Repair, some classic Rasoul stutterfunk, and Ralph Lawson's disco-tinged take on The Glass. Billy Dalessandro gets heavy and hypnotic; Bobby Peru provides the off-the-wall "Venom"; Martin Solveig soars; and Freestyleman drags Slam way down deep. Peaking in the perfect matching of Angel Alanis' vicious vocoder and Josh Wink's low-slung Infusion remix, Fabric 20 closes out with Michael Mayer firing up Superpitcher's sensual "Happiness," and Joel Mull's wonderfully-weird and wired "Emico."
