Fabric Takeover – Demarkus & Artizan Music, Get Physical, Slam
Artizan Music call in US deep house sounds of Demarkus Lewis…
When asked to detail the bond he shares with deep house, Dallas born and raised Demarkus Lewis remarks: “trying to describe my passion for the deep is almost like trying to describe why sugar tastes so sweet”. Well, if there was ever a slogan to capture the spirit of house fans, then, this is it!
With over 150 releases to his name, it was the classic anthem by MK feat Alana “Always” back in ’92 that first gave Demarkus his sweet tooth for house. Utilising his own unique approach of the genre in its own right over a double decade stretch he’s never lost sight of its identity and gets how the house renaissance will change and the cycle continues. Let it be known though that for him the 90′s is the golden years of deep house hands down.
Demarkus has built up a well-deserved reputation amongst the brightest minds of underground beats, including Artizan Music who are soon to drop a third release from him, “Slow N Low EP” and to celebrate, label heads Poussez (Jafar & Maxime Cescau) have invited him all the way from his American shores to our UK soil on Saturday for their Room Three takeover at Fabric.
Defining his latest promotional-mix exclusively for his debut Fabric appearance this Saturday, Demarkus gives us a further insight into what we can expect from the man himself when he graces the turntables in just a few days time…
“I wanted to give London’s listeners a sample of what my vibe is like on a normal day. I like to throw in a few classic tunes here and there for, like I said earlier, the 90′s is where it’s at! There are a few of my recent jams, including the Artizan release. I’m really digging the energy coming back into deep house. Europeans sometimes sleep on American artists because they themselves have plenty of great music to sift through.”
“Our scene is constantly growing. New producers are born and the fake ones die off. The artists I’ve chosen for this set in my eyes either have had long lasting careers or will acquire legendary status in years to come! Stay House!”
Get Physical owners Phillip Jung and Patrick Bodmer will also be flying their labels flag in Room One as they perform once again under their M.A.N.D.Y guise. As much as they’ll be filling the space with their commended blend of house and techno they’ve physically chosen label staple Tim Green and Detroit’s Kris Wadsworth, who is this year celebrating a decade in the music business, to join them.
In Room Two, Terry Francis (re)unites with one of Glasgow’s premier techno exports, Slam, who are living strong, still healthy in the twenty-first year of their Soma label’s existence. Fabric is keeping it to those two acts all night so you’re set to get an even more extended enjoyment out of Slam time.
