2007 release. If dedication is the backbone of culture, then house music lovers the globe over owe a sea of gratitude to the genre's much-loved UK doyen Ralph Lawson. There's something to be said for a man who, having dropped the very first record at Leeds' club-land institution Back To Basics in 1991, still remains its resident to this day. And it's something special indeed. Basics grew from strength to strength and Lawson went from being, as he puts it, "a thick DJ" to being deeply immersed in studio production. 2020Vision began in a deserted farmhouse in the middle of Yorkshire's rhubarb triangle in 1995 with keyboard genius Carl Finlow at the controls alongside Lawson. Through the years, many future electronic stars climbed over the rhubarb to pass through its doors to make merry and make music, including Josh Wink, Stacey Pullen, Chez Damier and Ron Trent, Derrick Carter, and Mr C, to name but a few. The studio grew in stature and the 2020Vision sound was even lent to the likes of David Bowie, Fat Boy Slim, and JK. Fabric 33 paints a beautifully emotive picture of Ralph Lawson's diverse career, setting the scene with the thick acid bass lines, swelling crescendos and dope beats he's known for. Drawing upon inspiration from life on the road with the 2020 Soundsystem as well as his own DJ experiences, Lawson has used each and every one of the 76 minutes to create a mix capable of rocking any disco or festival. Artists include: Vernon, 2020 Soundsystem, Julian Sanza, Dennis Ferrer, Badmouth, Will Saul, Marcello Giordani, Drum Cult, Marc Romboy, Nick Chacona, Art Of Tones, Brett Johnson feat. DJ Heather, Joakim, Greenskeepers, Swag, Justus Köhncke, and Random Factor.
