Fracture appears Friday 22nd at The Alibi in Dalston (flyer at end) and spoke to us as he veers slightly from the D&B template.
DB: First of all what beats are you drawing for this? What’s in the box?
F: Well the guys run a footwork night so I’ll pretty much be playing footwork and footwork-inspired stuff. Some jungle too. In fact most of the so-called ‘footwork’ stuff I’m playing is not actually footwork at all. It just seems to be called ‘160’ at the moment.
DB: So what sort of music has been killing you?
F: There’s loads that is doing it for me right now. Other than the usual suspects there’s a guy called FishStix who’s doing some excellent footwork jungle, very authentic sounding…
… then there’s young Sam Binga who’s recently done an EP with Om Unit which is gonna drop on Exit. All four tracks are wonky footwork slowfast madstep.
DB: How has it found its way into what you do?
F: I’m always after fresh ideas. The footwork thing seemed to fit with my productions seamlessly. Now it’s created a totally new beast!
DB: So tell me about the night? I feel it will be rammed too.
F: It’s run by some young guys that have a total passion for the vibe. They expressed an interest to have me play there, I went down and saw Mike Paradinas and Ital Tek play there and got down with the vibe. It’s also just down the road from where I grew up.
DB: btw have you more videos planned?
F: There’s always going to be more. I’d say watch this site very closely
