Unread Friday, Dec 17th 2004, 03:32 PM #1 Fabric 20: John Digweed to be released stateside March 8th 2005
New York, NY - Fabric 20: John Digweed will be released stateside on March 8th 2005. Fabric’s CD series feature mixes from both established and emerging artists who have hit the decks at this London club. Past Fabric releases include Craig Richards, James Lavelle, Hipp-E & Halo, Bent, Bugz in the Attic, Plump DJ’s, Swayzak and Adam Freeland among others. Fabric 20: John Digweed marks the 39th release in this ongoing series which reflects the values of the club and captures what is played inside it.

John Digweed is a masterful DJ. Given that he began playing in nightclubs at 16, it’s probably only right he should be. Back then, kids in the suburbs could only access house music on illegal rave tapes, or through recordings of U.S. radio stations like New York’s Kiss FM. A pal introduced John to both and, immediately smitten, he set about getting equipment and chasing down import copies of the records he’d heard. He split his time between working – firstly as a part-time gardener, later as a full-time bar manager – going to clubs in London, and DJing locally. Predictably, he found getting gigs hard, so he set up his own night, Bedrock, and invited his favorite DJs to play. All these 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.

“I bought a cheap Denon turntable that didn’t even have a pitch control, a second hand Technics that did, and a little Realistic mixer. I used to work doing gardening and odd jobs so that I could buy my records. I had to work out the BPM’s of every record, so that if one was faster I could still go into the next. The main reason for starting Bedrock was because I couldn’t get regular gigs, so I started my own night. I got Fabio, Grooverider, Eddie Richards, Carl Cox…and I used the flyers with my name on next to theirs to persuade promoters to book me. You have to be actively pushing yourself, making things happen.” - John Digweed

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’ blessed-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 drum-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; Bibby Peru provides 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’.

I think long and hard about each gig, and I’m very professional. Attitude is very important to me, I want every aspect to be right. I’ve never understood those DJs that say they’ll play their two hours and that’s it If the party’s great, you’ve got the crowd in your hands, why wouldn’t you want to play more than two hours? Sometimes, I have to be pulled off the decks, I just don’t want to handover. The sound system at Fabric makes records comes alive, and I can play tracks there that I couldn’t play in any other club on the planet; they just wouldn’t have the same effect. This CD is a five hour Fabric set, condensed into 74 minutes, and I hope it surprises a few people.” – John Digweed

i just got a copy today. maybe i should turn off beck and listen to it.
I'd known her for years. We used to go to all the police functions together. Ah, how I loved her, but she had her music. I think she had her music. She'd hang out with the Chicago Male Chorus and Symphony. I don't recall her playing an instrument or being able to carry a tune. Yet she was on the road 300 days of the year. In fact, I bought her a harp for Christmas. She asked me what it was.

You can find promotional copies on Soulseek. As for the CD, I wasn't crazy about it at first but I'm starting to like it more & more. Definitely not a typical release...
