Spank Rock Does Fabriclive
- Words: Jennifer Marston
Fans of 2006's YoYoYoYoYo can expect some of the usual hip-hop mashed up with Baltimore club and filthy lyrics on Fabriclive 33, but the boys collectively known as Spank Rock make it clear that they're more about enjoying the mix than repeating past glories on this latest release. "I think a big part of the aesthetic of our performance and how we roll, as far as making the party, is debauchery and fun...we just sort of carried that over into the Fabric mix," says Chris Devlin, who also notes that the group added their own sound effects that appear throughout the mix.
Fun seems to be the key here, something reflected in the dancefloor-friendly artists on the comp (Hot Chip, Mylo, members of the Ed Banger crew) and also in the fact that Spank Rock isn't afraid to make a left turn and include something as unusual as "Owner of a Lonely Heart" by Yes. The result is an hour-long mix of feel-good numbers that seek to rev up partygoers, cure last night's hangovers, and, most importantly, pick Fabric's somewhat slumping series up and get it back on the dancefloor where it truly belongs.
