FabricLive #70 – Friction

We just checked out FabricLives recent #70 mixtape with Mr Friction at the helm 🙂

So the mix moves straight off with some Optiv and BTK then into the gritty sounds of DC Breaks, the intro despite feeling heavy incorporates an element of radio 1 quality control, Friction goes for an obvious sound, that would appeal to the masses not necessarily an audience at a rave. However, once you get past this and the sounds of Enei and Emperor come flying in, you know Friction is back in the building. I wont go into the track listing here because it really is an intense roadblock affair of big names and titles. Being an avid listener of dnb over the years, I feel Frictions sound has been reworked/changed slightly, not saying for a moment this is a bad thing, but the type(s) of dnb he played a few years ago on the Shogun Audio podcast had a different sound to what I’m hearing from him now – who knows, maybe this is the new Shogun Audio sound?

The mix tape is a clean listen, as you would expect – every tune moving fluidly into the next, each complimenting the last in a way that only Friction carries forward. FabricLive 70 is definitely an album anyone in the genre will enjoy, and I’m still standing by the fact that Friction never fails 🙂 Big ups!
