Two mixes to download. Surprisingly, Shackleton is the keeper. I’ve often found his work to be minimal to the point of dullness. Not here. If the Weatherall mix of a few days back was ambient as orchestral symphonic, the Shackleton mix is more restrained, austere and monastic – liturgical even. If John Tavener did mixes it might sound like this. An unexpected joy.

From Big Shot Magazine – Guest Mix from Shackleton:

“I have tried to make a set that would best represent the set I played on that night [at Fabric], but minus the mistakes!” says Sam Shackleton of his Fabric55: Shackleton mix. “Some of the tracks are re-jigged versions of older material, some of them are new! Some of them will never see a release in any form aside from this! Some of them are not even tracks just coincidental parts merging with each other between tracks.”

Now that Fabric 55: Shackleton has finally arrived, we’re pleased to present a 7-track, 36-minute radio mix crafted by the man himself. Download and enjoy.

As for Mr Scruff, he says:


I hope that you had a great new year, and that 2011 is treating you well. We had an amazing NYE at Band on the Wall in Manchester. You can have a listen, look at the tracklisting & even download the whole 6 1/2 hour set on the Scruff SoundCloud page. Included in this mix is a brand new remix of ‘Music Takes Me Up’ by Nickodemus & Zeb, plus my still-warm-from-the-oven mix of Hizatron’s ‘Von Glooperstein’, coming soon on Fat City records..
