UK garage’s greatest DJ is behind Fabric’s 71st FabricLive CD.

DJ EZ might be best known for mixing the seminal Pure Garage compilations from 2000 to 2008, but he’s enjoyed a renaissance of late. Sure, to garage fans EZ never went away: he’s held down a show on Kiss FM for almost 15 years, continues to bring in the crowds at events like his 4×4 series, and age hasn’t affected his both technically-gifted and inventive approach to DJing one notch, but to the wider world he seems to have come firmly back in fashion this year, getting bookings at traditionally house and techno-leaning events like Bugged Out. That Red Bull Music Academy set probably helped.

Those who’ve watched and listened to EZ regularly in recent years won’t be surprised by FabricLive 71‘s tracklist: it blends long-time staples of EZ’s sets (Dem 2’s ‘Destiny’, Wookie’s ‘Little Man’ remix, Jammin’s ‘Hold On’) with some of his favourite contemporary producers (DJ Q’s Classified alias, Disclosure, Lil Silva’s SBTRKT remix and Jook 10 all feature). There’s even a nod to the North with jackin’ favourites Cause & Effect.

EZ will launch FabricLive 71 at Fabric on Friday September 13 with support from DJ Q, Swindle (live), Mista Men, Martelo, Majestic and more – for more information on that, head here. The compilation itself will be released on September 6.
