Switch & Sinden present this new mix installment for Fabriclive, having started the club “Get Familiar’ a few years back, with an eclectic philosophy to dance music encompassing the sounds of Baltimore Club Music, Baile Funk, Dancehall, Hip-Hop, House, Dubstep, Electro, and everything in between.
I was expecting a more techno oriented mix from Sinden, but this is fun, genre hopping, body poppin’ good fun! Mixing at a furious pace through the sounds of Juiceboxxx, Yo Majesty, Aquasky, Armand Van Helden, Scottie B & King Tutt, Mujava, Tigerstyle, MixHell, Buraka Som Sistema, Radioclit, Alan Braxe, Joker, JME, Skream, Zomby, Caper, Project Bassline, Piddy Py, Roisin Murphy, Machines Don’ Care, Kudu, M83 and Salem.
Straight up “genre’ mixes seem to be becoming a thing of the past, DJ’ preferring to keep things interesting, continually grabbing the listeners attention with changes in style, vocal tracks, post-rave references, but retaining a dancefloor friendly theme that makes for a fun ride.
Overall it’s a good selection of tracks from disparate genres, it does suffer from the odd weak track, but it still plays out with “fun’ as the main ingredient. Those of you who swear by the Fabriclive series will no doubt love this new installment.
