  • The Fabric series turns to West Coast house this summer, calling on veteran Stateside DJ Mark Farina to mix volume number 40. Farina’s jazzy take on deep house has long been a Fabric favourite with the DJ spinning at the London club a couple of times a year. Farina is well known for his downtempo Mushroom Jazz series five years back, and back DJ sets that blend jackin’ Chicago house with jazzier West Coast vibes. If you’re not familiar with him, check out our interview with Farina for the backstory. Farina describes the mix: “I played a sort of fictitious set at Fabric on a night that doesn’t exist. Musically, I tried to capture the techy, jackin’ Chicago/SF side of the house spectrum—dubby, chunky tracks. I tried to pick tunes from all over the world. I picked a good variation of underground goodies, a lot of which are unreleased or hopefully not on any other compilations. Tracks that have a good “shelf life” but that aren’t proven hits—hidden gems that might go overlooked in this fast-paced music era.” Tracklist 01 Giom – Together 02 Chuck Love – Yellow Truth (Atnarko Mix) 03 JT Donaldson & Uneaq – Why Not Rock? 04 Ricardo Rae – Lead The Way 05 John Larner & Slater Hogan – Gettin’ Ready 06 Inland Knights – Where Ya At ? 07 Homero Espinosa - Got This Feeling (LNS Disco Dub) 08 Alexander East – Believe En Me 09 Frank Solano – The Blues Line [Tommy Largo Remix] 10 Kris G – Feel My Love [Bobby Valentine Remix] 11 Non Believers – Stasera 12 Johnny Fiasco – Last Word 13 Mood II Swing – Closer [Oliver Desmet & Fred Everything Mix] 14 James Curd – Pick Up What I’m Putting Down 15 Rylan White Ft.
