INTEC TO TAKEOVER FABRIC

Intec Allstars takeover the whole of Fabric...
Vapourspace - Sasha - Last Night On Earth

Progressive doyen Sasha returns with his first single in four years, and he makes sure it packs the requisite punch, with ‘Vapourspace’ reflecting his increasing willingness in recent years to embrace his trancier side. Though it simmers with lashings of techno, Sasha works mostly with pure progressive power here, the dark rumble of the bassline slowly swelling into the melodic boom that takes hold in the latter part of the track. Sasha isn’t afraid to unleash here, with ‘Vapourspace’ representing a peaktime indulgence.

I Had This Thing (Joris Voorn Remix) - Royksopp - Green

Joris Voorn won the electro/progressive Money Shot in January with his remix of Audion’s ‘Dem Howl’, and here he achieves similar death-defying results with a rework that again shows his willingness to dither in the more melodic and emotive side of club music. Admittedly, he’s given a superb template to work with by Royksopp; all the melodic elements are intact, as well as the vocal that’s swimming with beautiful melancholy and regret. Voorn strips the bombast back a little, which actually has the effect of making ‘I Had This Thing’ even more powerful.

Shuvit! - Dan Lissvik - Smalltown Supersound

In the mid '00s, Dan Lissvik caused the biggest waves in the Balearic pool with the now classic ‘West Coast’ album as Studio, and went on to score production points for the likes of A Mountain of One to Kylie. After somewhat of a hiatus, he makes a return and finds a suitable home amongst Smalltown Supersound with these three tracks of refined and sumptuously delivered disco-noir. Lush.

F*ckin' Huge - Cryogenix - Big & Dirty

A record for the EDM massive with a bit more of an edge. ‘F*ckin' Huge’ kicks off with more of a slamming progressive vibe, before the chorus welcomes in a few of those recognisable main stage melodies, before the white noise ramps up again after the drop. ‘F*ckin' Huge’ has more bite than the standard cheap thrills you’d associate with the EDM sound, and with the likes of Guetta showing support, it’s further evidence the main stage is toughening up a little.
