A breath of quiter music after whompy extravaganze of the mix in the previous post. Fabric man, James Mack a.k.a. Mackaveli has prepared an exclusive mix for Dazed Digital. I'm a real sucker for 'nueva' 2-step and Garage beats and Mackaveli delivers them a'plenty in the urban UK sound style. Starting from a warm remix of The XX by Renessaince Man, through some obvious names like Todd Edwards, Roska, DJ Narrows, Brackles, two of my favorite producers in this particular genre at the moment, i.e. Dexplicit and Zomby (Martyn being the third one) to the Street Bass don - Starkey and his beautiful synths. A perfect package to warm you up in the darkness of this cold winter.

Speaking of Roska, I've received recently a copy of the anniversary Fabric Live 50 CD mixed by Martyn including Roska's Speechless Remix of Martyn feat. dBridge - These Words. This track is absolutely, f..g insane! It is due for release January 2010 on Martyn's own label 3024 (along with e.g. Ben Clock, Redshape or Zomby remixes of other Martyn tracks). Don't miss this!
