DJ EZ to mix Fabric Live for 16 September release

Anyone who grew up during the UK Garage era will have a good understanding that DJ EZ was the boss. Anyone who still follows UK underground music, will also know that EZ is still……the boss.

Often, certain artists get labelled as a ‘legend’, which is a bit of an overused word with diluted meaning nowadays. However…..we all know that today, anyone can become a DJ, with little understanding of, well anything really – pop in a CD into each CDJ, ensure the tempo (bpm) are equal, and boom – have fun with the cross fader, you badd-ass DJ! The only part to consider here is the selection, but thats the easy bit.

Most DJs welcome the ravers to attend the dancefloor, however what nobody else does in addition to this, is command those who are slightly more interested who those who cannot dance, to stand overlooking the DJ booth (or behind the DJ booth in the old Atlantis club in Croydon back in 2001) – watching the EZ performance.

Using CDJ’s as if they are a drum machine, cutting and chopping his way through the most amount of tracks within an hour that’s even almost possible.

Its no secret that EZ has been my most worshipped DJ since I was at school (over 14 years now) and religiously buying the tape packs of EZ recorded sets as I was too young to even consider attending – then from 18 – it was only right to follow him starting from Best of the Best at Blue Orchid and Atlantis and even Pals, in Croydon, to Gas Club in Leicester Sq, La Cosa Nostra & Garage Nation in London, to the Sidewinder events at Sanctuary in Milton Keynes, and at a joint event with Basslaced at Cable last year & to then have him play at the GetDarker Xmas Party back in 2012 was overly sureal. All of the above, whilst listening weekly to his Kiss FM show.

Back to the original point…EZ is due to mix & unleash a Fabric Live CD in September, if the above doesn’t give you a heads up on how excited I personally am – lets hope Fabric include a bonus DVD of him mixing it.
