Speaking about his mix in a statement, Vynehall said: "The output of fabric's label holds a special place for me. During my teens into early twenties the musical landscape I was exposed to broadened, and my taste diversified greatly; going to shows, making music, and swapping new finds with friends. fabric had a huge part to play in shaping what I heard and was exposed to via their mix and compilation series. The first two I heard were Swayzak's 'fabric 11' and James Murphy & Pat Mahoney's 'FABRICLIVE 36'.
"Both these CDs helped open the door to a wider palette of sounds. Not only did I delve deeper into the compilations post and prior, but I learned about what I enjoyed when it comes to Djing – dynamics. That was the aim of my entry into the fabric discography. A dynamic mix with a cohesive sonic narrative running through it with the club in mind. I feel incredibly lucky to be putting forward my take on something that helped to shape how I approach what I do when I DJ."
Speaking about the track 'Sugar Slip (The Lick)', which you can listen to below, he added: "I wanted 'Sugar Slip (The Lick)' to embody what this 'fabric presents' mix was about – far-out, but playful."
To mark the compilation's release, Vynehall will perform live and DJ at London's fabric on 8th April. He'll curate a full line-up at the club, which will include POiSON ANNA also playing live. The full line-up will be revealed in the coming week, with tickets going on sale on Friday, 28th January.
