Win 2 copies of Fabric 27: Matthew Dear as Audion

Audion is one of 27-year-old Texan Matthew Dear aliases and Fabric 27 project follows last October's artist LP Suckfish. On Fabric 27, Matthew has pushed the generally established limits of a compilation, taking parts from various tracks and splicing them together to make new ones.

"The pseudonyms are mainly to organise my own head. Electronic music, as I'm sure everybody knows, can take so many different avenues and there can be so many different genres within genres. Audion came out of a need I was finding in live shows to play harder and more aggressive music. I was just getting a little... I wouldn't say bored with subtle, minimal stuff, but I realised if you added hard and powerful moments people could lose themselves a lot easier. I think it's easier for the listener to know what they're getting into as well. If somebody goes to a shop and they're looking for a new record, I wouldn't wanna confuse them if they bought Audion thinking it was gonna sound like my other stuff." – Matthew Dear

On Fabric 27, Matthew has pushed the generally established limits of a compilation, taking parts from various tracks and splicing them together to make new ones. It's a sleazy laptop dance routine, continually shifting in shape.
