Fabric Live 33 - Spank Rock Megapost

What I just sent... Is it true that you automaticly get to dj in Ibiza after doing one of these?
Thats XXXchange after having just sent Fabric Live 33 master to London on January 29th. Fabric Live members will have received this on Saturday, UK retail gets it next week but the US won't get it until the 24th. For now just marinate on this:
“I came up with the idea that every person that does a mix after the last person always has to start with the song that the last one ended with. So that last song, the idea was we were gonna put it at the end so you listen to ours and it ends, and you listen to Diplo’s and that’s what it kicks off with – so they all have a connection together.” – Ronnie Darko

And the result is Fabriclive 33, a statement-making mix bursting with personality. From the dialogues in the intro and outro (which Alex secretly recorded before their performance on the Jimmy Kimmel show) to their secret sound effects to their debauched singing to just the quick draw, short attention span levelling of genres, if this mix asks a question, the answer is downright hilarious. Tricks are for kids and don’t you forget it.

“The thing is, we fuck around a lot, all the time…and I think a big part of the aesthetic of our performances and how we roll, as far as making the party, is debauchery and fun. And if something’s sloppy, you kind of own that a little bit, you know? So we just sort of carried that over into the fabric mix, we thought maybe it would be good to have a little bit of humour in it. And there’s some other stuff – we did a lot of recording, we made a lot of sound effects. For example, there sounds on there that sound like bombs dropping, which we made by mic’ing the sound of us picking up amplifiers and dropping them. There’s little stuff in there that took a while to make, and yeah…there’s some stuff in there you gotta check for. It was really fun to make.”- Chris Devlin
