- The Irish bass specialist is next in line for the London club's mix series.
Dublin-based DJ and producer Zero T has mixed the next edition of FabricLive, due for release this June.
Though mostly loyal to jungle and drum & bass, Zero T has always tried to ignore genre boundaries and play whatever feels right, a style of DJing he considers to be on the rise. "It seems that here in the UK, strict genres and the rigidity of DJing are both melting away," he says. "Now it's normal for me to switch tempos in a drum & bass set, and it's just as normal for Skream and Benga to play a drum & bass tune, which is healthy... It really opens you up as a DJ when you can play a good tune at the right time, instead of being obsessed with double drops and stupid timings."
FabricLive 52 showcases this free-flowing method of DJing, weaving between jungle and drum & bass at first and then moving into garage, dubstep, house and even hip-hop later on. "I wanted to give an honest representation of what a Zero T set is like, to play tunes that I genuinely love. I also wanted for it to be a CD for people that aren't into drum & bass."
