Fabriclive 30: Stanton Warriors Announced

The breaks pioneers from Stanton Warriors are chosen for mixing the 30th compilation from Fabriclive series. At the middle of October Fabric Records will release some of the best seamless boom pity booty-shaking grooves ever cut to plastic. After some innovative mix compilations from DJ Format, Evil Nine and Cut Copy, Stanton Warriors will deliver on the acclaimed Fabriclive series a new mix CD with a special vibe for break beat music.

After working together at the seminal garage label 51st Recordings, Dominic B. and Mark Yardley aka Stanton Warriors knocked heads, pooled resources and fashioned a pair of renegade tunes fusing the random playful hustle of nu-breaks with the sweeping good looks of early garage. It was to be the birth of breakbeat intelligence. They emerged the darlings of the remix set, serving fixings for acts like Basement Jaxx, Missy Elliiot, Artful Dodger, Busta Rhymes, Fatboy Slim, Chicken Lips, Azzido Da Bass, Mylo, Freeform Five & Apollo 440.

A battle in the most rock-star of sense ensued, leading the pair to their new home V2, where their long-awaited debut album 'Lost Files' was finally released to huge critical acclaim. The included collaborations with The Beatnuts and Sway brought a new spin to the breakbeat genre, with music journalists once again caught short for how to categorise this up-front musical chameleon.

Slide Spank Rock up against Booka Shade, throw Old Skool Junx next to Deekline & Edd Solo, shimmy Freeform Five alongside King Unique, and create a genre-bending club ready mix of exclusive up-front breaks mashing special reedits against a hip-hop-cum-Miami-booty-electro-punk landscape. It's a line up of unusual suspects, yet still manages to echo pure Stanton Warriors, with the duo producing exclusive cuts, blends and re-imaginings, all with that special breakbeat work down. Regarding this compilation, one of the mebers from Stanton Warriors, Dom, says that "all the tracks on the Fabric mix are edited by etching stuff from loads of different scenes, putting our beats and other elements underneath them. He described the mix CD as "sexy in a subtle way, it bounces like booty breaks does (...) I think a kind of late night minimal booty would be the word for it."
