David Rodigan to curate FabricLive 54

David Rodigan, aka The Last Man You’d Ever Want To Face In A Soundclash, has been tapped by Fabric to curate the latest FabricLive for the mixed cd series. Definitely looking forward to this release as it will feature what will no doubt be another selection of some of the original ‘bass music’ in the form of reggae. When Rodigan speaks or spins, you should listen – unless he is providing dance instructions.

Fact Magazine provides an in-depth write up and a good analysis of the tracks selected for the mix on their site, the album is slated for release on 22-November.

“I deliberately avoided the obvious tracks which have appeared repeatedly on reggae compilation albums over the years,” he says. “Fabric, the club, and Fabric the record label, is at the cutting edge of music and so I wanted to uphold that legacy with my album.

“[This mix] allows me to delve into those historic dubs that I made with King Tubby The Dubmaster at his studios in Kingston,” he continues. “They were customised, exclusive dubs made and when I play them the Fabric fraternity have gone completely nutzoid!
