that looks awesome!

of more immediate interest: on sep 9, that's NEXT FRIDAY, we have VITALIC at Fabric (with 2manyDJs and Soulwax Nite Versions too), who's up for it?

The Lex (The Lex), Thursday, 1 September 2005 12:36 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i'm going to that soulwax one..

should be fun.. looking forward to seeing vitalic live.

jellybean (jellybean), Thursday, 1 September 2005 12:39 (twelve years ago) Permalink

my lord the oct 22nd one is billed as 10pm-10am!

I am up for Vitalique! but you know this, Alex. Also diplo is in the 7th oct, not so sure though as I am quite scared of fabriclive and that's the beginning of term for me.

spontine (cis), Thursday, 1 September 2005 12:46 (twelve years ago) Permalink

10pm-10am!!!!

cis, oct 7 is the return of forget about the sugar, I forgot this the other day but I am sure my boyfriend will be back in town soon. I will play some baile funk funk carioca for you!

(also on sep 20 - am djing at 93ft east again)

The Lex (The Lex), Thursday, 1 September 2005 12:48 (twelve years ago) Permalink

But but but there is a dj at fabricplo called 'macpherson', surely this is you in your breakbeat disguise?

...oh argh and I am doing Smagghe on sep 24th as well (dudes! come and dance with me!), I might as well just set up camp in farringdon.

(yay!)

spontine (cis), Thursday, 1 September 2005 12:53 (twelve years ago) Permalink

10am! i didn't notice that.

i think i am sadly v unlikely to be at fabric this friday. what's the deal with these nite versions btw? i heard the version of "krack" the other day and it sounded amazing - is it like a remix album or something?!

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 1 September 2005 12:56 (twelve years ago) Permalink

where is smagghe on the 24th? not that i can go, anyway, i think.

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 1 September 2005 12:57 (twelve years ago) Permalink

did any of the rest of you think that smagghe was a bit disappointing in july, btw?

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 1 September 2005 12:58 (twelve years ago) Permalink

omg I'm djing at fabricplo and I didn't even realise.

none of us stayed til the end of smagghe, remember! I enjoyed it but not so much that I'd rave about it for weeks afterwards. isolée was great though.

nite versions = rmx album yes, the nite version of 'e talking' is the one which always gets played out.

The Lex (The Lex), Thursday, 1 September 2005 13:07 (twelve years ago) Permalink

sep 24: he is at the fabric, again. July was... I dunno, I wasn't so fond of the dudes before isolée (not enough banging bangers! or um any change whatever, it felt like, mind you I am philistine) and that kind of put a dampener on the whole thing, but I was dog-tired before I even got there, so. One reason why I want to see him dj again.

spontine (cis), Thursday, 1 September 2005 13:09 (twelve years ago) Permalink

fabric would be much better if craig richards was banned. i'd much rather they did that than stay open til 10am or whatever.

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 1 September 2005 13:35 (twelve years ago) Permalink

the nite version of 'e talking' is the one which always gets played out.

thanks! i deleted all the versions of this a while ago, but it'd been in my head recently and i wanted to know which one to download, and now i do. they're going to be really good live, i suspect.

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 1 September 2005 14:21 (twelve years ago) Permalink

e talking - nite version with nancy whang, terrific, always gets played; disco drama version with tiga, terrific, never gets played; original, terrible. there are probably other versions which I haven't heard.

The Lex (The Lex), Thursday, 1 September 2005 14:35 (twelve years ago) Permalink

rex the dog, way overrated.

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 1 September 2005 14:54 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I am in London for two weeks from tomorrow, I will miss Vitalic though! I want to go dancing.

The last honest gentleman (nordicskilla), Thursday, 1 September 2005 15:37 (twelve years ago) Permalink

the NY Lipps dub of "NY Excuse" is also very good, basically booted the original with Lipps Inc "Funkytown", such a simple floorfiller!

Ronan (Ronan), Thursday, 1 September 2005 20:55 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I will miss Vitalic/2MDJS as well. 22nd looks great though. 10am less so. I am a wuss these days.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Thursday, 1 September 2005 21:10 (twelve years ago) Permalink

strongly tempted by the 22nd I must say, if I can manage it, I am waaaay overdue a trip to London.

I am interviewing monsieur vitalic this weekend!

Ronan (Ronan), Thursday, 1 September 2005 21:13 (twelve years ago) Permalink

does anyone know who else is at fabriclive on oct 7th? fabric appear to have shut down their website right now. alternatively, does anyone know any good MIA/grime-style gigs coming up? my sis wants to know, and i'm not down enough with the kids to have a clue...

toby (tsg20), Wednesday, 7 September 2005 11:59 (twelve years ago) Permalink

how easy is it to smuggle drugs into fabric? i'm talking mdma powder or coke... any tips?

deep kid, Wednesday, 7 September 2005 14:22 (twelve years ago) Permalink

oct 7 is forget about the sugar, toby!

(cis and i were contemplating going on to fabric afterwards, actually, on the assumption that diplo will probably be on after 2.)

there's a grime gig on sep 16 (clashes with poptimism unfortunately) at, er, the vice pub. jme, skepta and big h are lined up.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 7 September 2005 14:40 (twelve years ago) Permalink

e talking - nite version with nancy whang, terrific, always gets played; disco drama version with tiga, terrific, never gets played; original, terrible. there are probably other versions which I haven't heard.

The Rex mix is king - I always let it play through. Still doubt I'm showing on Friday as I'm sure to overexert myself rock'n'roll dancing in Fulham.

BARMS, Wednesday, 7 September 2005 15:11 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i'll be at forget about the sugar, lex! i'm not going anywhere near this fabric live nonsense...

last night was fun. I can't believe how small room 1 is though. Is fabric always that packed? Soulwax nite version works so well.

jellybean (jellybean), Saturday, 10 September 2005 13:04 (twelve years ago) Permalink

soulwax nite version are incredible! I didn't even know they existed, and wow. It was a bit more crowded than fabric - well, fabric sat - usually is, I though, usually there is at least some minimal room in which to dance.

spontine (cis), Saturday, 10 September 2005 17:01 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Explain Soulwax Nite Version to me.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Saturday, 10 September 2005 17:20 (twelve years ago) Permalink

as far as I know it involves LIVE ELECTROHOUSE REMIXES or something equally insane, all I know is it is heaven to dance to.

spontine (cis), Saturday, 10 September 2005 18:00 (twelve years ago) Permalink

It's basically what they did to NY Excuse repeated for the whole of the last album. Lots of the good vocal/instrumental bits put to house beats and remixed all together.

Just a shame I couldn't see much, with all those tall blokes standing in front of me.

Simian Mobile Disco were a lot more dancier than I expected too.

jellybean (jellybean), Saturday, 10 September 2005 18:12 (twelve years ago) Permalink

oh and room 3 had loads of room to dance in early(ish) on.

when is fabric birthday?!?!?!?!

ambrose (ambrose), Saturday, 10 September 2005 18:52 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Sat 22nd October.

Tempting.

I can't decide whether to try and go over for the Birthday (MANDY and Booka Shade!) or Michael Mayer (Michael Mayer!).

It's like the DJs I've never seen and really want to versus the one I know is brilliant.

Ronan (Ronan), Saturday, 10 September 2005 21:01 (twelve years ago) Permalink

do the birthday one, ronan. it goes on til 10am! and luciano will surely be amazing, too.

soulwax nite versions is on slsk now, btw.

Yeah, well, on the bat walk, we got to play with BAT DETECTORS and discovered that bats make hyper-sonic noises that sound like Autechre! I'd dance to that!

Luminiferous Aether (kate), Sunday, 11 September 2005 12:35 (twelve years ago) Permalink

why did youmiss it adam?

i saw jo jo whatsername from nag nag nag play electrohouse and mike dred playing v fast acid (UI stuff) in different rooms at the same time. v strange line up

Ricky T = FOOL for skipping Fabric even when spare guestlist became available! AMAZING AMAZING NIGHT.

Fabric was more rammed than I have ever ever seen it before and half the people downstairs seemed to be wide-eyed indie kids there for the first time and petrified of all the people asking them for pills. I can't imagine how little room there would have been in the main room, even the balcony was fairly packed!

I want to know who was playing in room 2 (? - the one where Vitalic wasn't) last, we went there after 2manydjs got too indie and it was insanely banging and fucked with my head a bit.

Photos might emerge at some point...

I know that no one else dance to shoegazing but me, but I'll be dancing at this:

shoegazing sounds from the Velvets to the Valentines

doors for worship on JOHN PEEL DAY, Thursday October
13. Appropriately, there’s a very rare live outing for
JIM REID, former frontman of Peel favourites The Jesus
And Mary Chain, plus one of the first UK appearances
from Australia’s THE MORNING AFTER GIRLS. On the decks
are THE TELESCOPES, who have promised some Peel
treats, and some very special SURPRISE GUESTS.
