British techno don Ben Sims has been named to mix Fabric 73, the next instalment in the London club’s long-running series of mix CDs. 

A launch party for the mix will take place at the Farringdon venue on November 16, featuring Fabric residents Craig Richards and Terry Francis along with Planetary Assault Systems (live), Margaret Dygas, Brandt Brauer Frick (live) and Toi Toi Musik.

Growing up on electro and hip-hop before drifting into the world of pirate radio at the peak of acid house and hardcore, Essex-born Sims has been a fixture on the UK’s techno scene for two decades as both a DJ and producer, and his selection for Fabric 73 is heavily influenced by what he calls the “perfect and elusive” environment of Fabric’s Room 2.

Mixed live in sections, with extra edits stitched together with Ableton, fabric 73 features 18 (!) unreleased tracks and a number of Sims’ own edits. The CD is out on December 2 and can be pre-ordered now – check out the tracklist below.
