Paul Woolford, aka Special Request, provides a continuous mix for the 91st installment of Fabric's mix series. Following a slightly surreal and cavernous beginning, the classic UK techno of Caustic Window (an alias of Richard D. James - Aphex Twin) opens up proceedings and laying the foundation of the mix. The momentum builds as the ruthless tones of 214's "Frostbite" signify a turn into darker waters. The murky tension sets the scene for the first of six new Special Request tracks, "Redrum". Then, Stefan Vincent's lush emotive "Aquilae" and a voice recording from Cristian Vogel's "Atomic Layers" provide a pause to breathe before the descent into the second half, where the mix travels rapidly through various shades of jungle, drum & bass, and noise, from the dubwise movement of Forest Drive West, to classic Dillinja and beyond with the mix peaking with the furious jungle of "Stairfoot Lane Bunker" and the drum & bass of DJ Trace & Nico. Special Request Recent BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix and 3x 12" EP releases on XL Recordings, the same label as Adele, Radiohead and The Prodigy. Special Request's debut album on Houndstooth, Soul Music (HTH 012CD/LP, 2013) was listed #1 album of the year by DJ Mag.
