Fabric's legendary mix series teams up with house music hero DJ Sneak [owner of Magnetic Recordings—ha. -ED] in February's installment. Following the edition of slow techno (now mysteriously known as “modern deep house”) mavens Visionquest, DJ Sneak takes it back to the basics of classic house in all of its incarnations (something he knows quite well), from “boompty”, to jackin' and everything in between.

DJ Sneak does not reinvent the wheel on this mix—and why should he? He pioneered the damn tire. Opening with fresh “Calcium” by Strip Steve and Das Glow—unexpected because it's released on aggressive electro Boys Noize Records sublabel BNR TRAX—the mix quickly descends into classic high-hat driven 127 beats per minute bopping house, rife with loopy vocal samples and saxophones. From there, listeners are taken on a subtly winding road of uplifting grooves (notably two tracks remixed by Belgium's Ramon Tapia) and “house music talking about house music” ubiquitous to the genre. DJ Sneak closes out with a big band feel in “Beware of The Swingers” by Cause & Affect. Fans of DJ Sneak will get exactly what they expect in Fabric 62: seamless, traditional house music mixed by a true master.
