FABRICLIVE65: DJ HAZARD
DJ Hazard steps forth, hauling along his balls-out, frenetic DJ style in the process. After the last few years, the d’n’b scene has discovered its minimal, techno influenced and at times introspective side. But the tide is turning again, with DJs such as Kasra, Enei and - for the latest FABRICLIVE mix - DJ Hazard, notching up the tempo and adding the full force of charged, syncopated drum patterns, rolling rhythms and devastating b-lines.
And in furious, quick mix style, the latest mix from the club goes in hard, wasting no time at all in delivering a full throttle charge to the pit of your stomach. Clattering, snarling and ploughing through a range of 170bpm smashers, it reminds of a time when d’n'b fans were out to make their mark through the art of the rave – and rave hard they did.
Hazard indeed captures this same energy and the original spirit of the drum and bass movement, with the Kool FM associate ranging from classic cuts from the likes of Ray Keith and Mampi Swift, plus his productions such as Meen Time, It’s a A Secret and the massive Cherry Bomb. More introspective numbers such as Joe Seven’s Untitled Monotron rub shoulders with nasty, rumbling beasts such as The Upbeats remix of Noisia’s Diplodocus, but the theme stays the same throughout the majority of the album – a focus on the dance-floor and the packed out, sweaty rave.
A whopping tracklisting spanning 50 tracks, this one is definitely not for the faint of heart – or even for the more experimental fan of syncopated music. Those looking for something fresh, envelope pushing and drastically different from the main room vibe need not apply; for anyone who's looking for a full-on, fun and driven mix (and even miss the fun days of d’n’b rave ups), then this un-apologetic mix is definitely for you.
