Boomkat Product Review:
The latest luminary asked to make the selctions and man the decks for Fabric is Marc Leclair, better known as Akufen and purveyor of that finest kind of hiccup-funk-micro-house, a sub-genre he more or less single-handedly popularised. The lineup is much what you'd expect, featuring tracks from fellow dancefloor technicians Matthew Dear, Cabanne, Ark, S-max, Freaks, Atom Heart, the Rip Off Artist, Matthew Herbert and and so on, but the mix is expertly handled and paced perfectly. Surprisingly, this is the first commercially available mix from Akufen - let's hope we hear some new studio material from him soon. In the meantime, this'll do very nicely indeed.
