The penultimate We Love Space of the summer sees more techno than you can shake a stylus at in the Discoteca on 23 September. There’s legends from both sides of the pond with Detroit’s Derrick May and Glasgow’s Slam lining up purveyors of the new school Sandwell District, Technasia and resident Jem Haynes. The wide-ranging electronica of James Zabiela switches over the the Terraza alongside the crowd-pleasing eclecticism of 2ManyDJs and the refined tastes of Ian Blevins and Geddes.
It’s a forward thinking night of epic proportion on the Terraza on 02 September. There’s performances from three markedly different artists in the form of Carl Craig and a back-to-back session with Four Tet vs. Caribou. It’s something of a coup to have so many maestros of this calibre in one of music’s most famous rooms. Resident Paul Woolford completes the room’s lineup, with jozif playing together with Vitalik’s head honcho, Ryan O Gorman. In the Discoteca the Glaswegian techno of Slam live are up alongside the International Gigolo DJ Hell. There’s also a welcome return from Tiga and our moustached favourite Ivan Smagghe.
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!

Along with the birthday weekend, New Year’s Eve is one of those dates that has always been set in stone at Fabric. Perceived by many as the night of the year there’s a level of anticipation that comes with the turn of the calendar and to mark it the club opens it’s doors for a full 12 hours; broadening their horizons from 9pm in the evening until 9am of New Year’s Day. Switching up their usual rhythm structure to accommodate the extra hours they’ll be calling on their residents Craig Richards and Terry Francis to set the pace. Always at the top of their agenda, whilst often stealing the limelight away from those their selection skills mesh with, they’ll be welcoming old friends and new ones as Room One greets the emphatic newcomer Maya Jane Coles, Cocoon’s self confessed sound freak, Tobi Neumann and something of a unsung legend in Lil Louis, whose heritage and seminal “French Kiss” record still stands out to this day in house music’s rich history.
Room Two will play host to one of Fabric‘s longest techno compatriots, Adam Beyer, who’s currently at the top of his game with his Drumcode label acting as a major inspiration for many aspiring producers and as a respected worldwide platform for talent. He’ll be joining Slam, Fabric‘s long time residents who’ve been celebrating their Soma label’s 20th anniversary this year with releases galore and non-stop touring and Alan Fitzpatrick, who’s making his second ever official visit to play there.
Fresh from a year of running underground house parties in London, Toi Toi Musik will be taking to Room Three to provide that club within a club intimacy the space has become renowned for. Having already accumulated an incredible honour roll of previous guests, this NYE they’re bringing Wagon Repair‘s The Mole, Cristi Cons and their resident and founder, Claus Voigtmann.
