Time Out says
Over its 16 years, Fabric has established itself as one of London's clubbing landmarks – a reputation built through consistently high-quality programming that showcases all strands of the UK's electronic music underground. Located in a former meatpacking warehouse, the club's three rooms are brought to life every weekend with the finest low-frequencies and the deepest grooves in town, as the hip crowds that pack out the dancefloor will testify.
FabricLive on Fridays is all about the bass, with regular sets from heavyweight drum 'n' bass don DJ Hype and his Playaz crew, alongside various other scene leaders from garage and dubstep, and rising UK bass producers playing throughout the club. Saturdays are usually led by long-standing Fabric DJs and programmers Craig Richards and Terry Francis, who bring in an A-list cast to relay techno, house, disco, Italo, minimal and other deep, hypnotic grooves. You might find Chilean-German techno warrior Ricardo Villalobos playing one of his legendary extended sets, or perhaps a Chicago house legend ripping things up, or even the finest new DJ talent from around the globe at parties like Daniel Avery's Divided Love.
Things don't slow down on Sundays, either: Long-running weekly party WetYourSelf fires up at 11pm every Sunday, offering all kinds of deep house, funky techno, cosmic disco and Italo grooves until 8am on Monday morning. Whatever your taste in clubs and clubbing, Fabric is bound to have something for you, making it an essential stop to tick off for anyone who wants to truly experience London's rich underbelly of nightlife.
