It's that time of the year again when Fabric, one of London's only remaining superclubs, will be throwing another massive birthday party. Now hitting 11-years-old, the pre-teen will be seeing two nights of havoc with Dub Police hosting Room One with Caspa, Emalkay, Breakage, The Others, N-Type VS. Hatcha, Trolley Snatcher, and Sound Proof alongside MCs Rod Azlan, Crazy D, and Dread MC. Meanwhile, Room Two will be home all night to Andy C, Scratch Perverts, Marcus Nasty, Kasra, Ali B, and Greenmoney before Blunted Robots take over upstairs with label owners Brackles and Shortstuff, Scratcha DVA, Doc Daneeka, and Martin Kemp, hosted by MC ASBO. The next evening, Saturday 16th will see the techno and house legends play - including Craig Richards, Terry Francis, Ricardo Villalobos, Innervisions' Dixon and Ame, Damian Lazarus, French ensemble dOP, London's own Floating Points and Kubicle DJs, Lee Burridge, Levon Vincent, Move D, Ryan Crosson, Tobi Neumann, and deep house producer Trus’ Me.
Shortstuff, who made his name as part of the Planet Mu and Ramp labels and running his Blunted Robots label with Brackles, will be bringing his blend of electronic beats and dub influences to Fabric on the Friday. We spoke to the South Londoner about what he eats for breakfast and what to expect from him.
