- Jeff Mills, Ben UFO, Head High and DJ Stingray will play the #saveourculture event on December 17th.
RA will hold a one-off In Residence event in London in honour of fabric.
The London nightclub was meant to be the December home of In Residence, our ongoing series celebrating club culture, but plans for four events across the month were scuppered when the club's license was revoked and it was forced to close back in September. In fabric's absence, we're teaming up with The Hydra for a special event at Studio Spaces E1 on December 17th. All profits from the night will go towards fabric’s battle to reopen.
This one-off celebration will showcase the breadth of sounds heard over a typical weekend at the iconic venue. The two-room lineup captures both the house and techno focus of fabric's Saturday nights, as well as the more bass-heavy FABRICLIVE nights on Fridays. Jeff Mills will headline the main room alongside fellow Detroit favourite DJ Stingray, while two generations of UK techno's leading lights—Blawan and James Ruskin—play back-to-back. The main room's hard-hitting lineup is rounded off by a live set from Ancient Methods.
In room two, we've got beloved fabric resident Craig Richards spinning back-to-back with Ben UFO, who came in at number four in last year's top 100 DJ poll on RA. They'll be joined by drum & bass head dBridge, Shed (under his breakbeat rave alias Head High) and SAOIRSE.
So far, In Residence has taken over clubs in Chicago, Paris, Rome, Barcelona and beyond. In November we'll be in Seoul to celebrate Mystik, and then in January 2017 we're off to Warung Beach Club in Brazil for the penultimate stop in the In Residence series.
Tickets are available here on RA.
