Ben Sims to Helm New Fabric Mix Album

It was over a year ago when London techno veteran Ben Sims delivered his podcast for XLR8R, and the DJ/producer has certainly kept busy releasing loads of 12"s and EPs in the meantime. For his next record, Sims has announced that he'll issue his first installment of Fabric's ongoing series of mix albums. Fabric 73 is a massive, 44-track excursion through "advanced" and "spirited" techno which seems to touch on many disparate corners of the sound—including music from stalwarts such as Robert Hood, Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, Surgeon, and Trevino, as well as younger artists like L-Vis 1990, Gingy & Bordello, Benjamin Damage, and Clouds, not to mention plenty of productions from Sims himself. According to its press release, "Fabric 73 was mixed live in sections, with Sims then poring over details, adding edits, and stitching the various parts together in Ableton to form a master mix," and features "no less than 18 unreleased tracks," some of which the mixmaster has refrained from playing out before the release of his mix album. Before that date arrives on December 2, the artwork and tracklist for Ben Sims' Fabric 73 can be found below.
