Raresh – fabric78
Bacau-born artist Raresh has had a huge impact on underground electronic music culture since stepping onto the scene at the turn of the millennium. Initially starting his career as a resident at Zebra Club on his home turf before meeting the Sunrise Crew, Rhadoo and Pedro at the venue and forming the [a:rpia:r] outfit – heavily endorsed by fellow fabric regular, Ricardo Villalobos. News of the burgeoning scene eventually spread beyond the Romanian border, leading to an international touring schedule for Raresh, including biannual appearances at fabric since 2008.
Raresh – “I made the mix at home with 2 CD players and turntables and everything came very naturally. For me is not so easy to make a mix at home without any crowd, but I imagined myself in full packed Room 1… I was a bit nervous but this added a bit of spice in the mix!”
Across fabric 78 we’re treated to array of textural atmospheres, intricate percussion lines and penetrating low-end tones, all instilled with mind-bending complexities to capture the essence of the Raresh sound brilliantly. The track listing employs a broad spectrum of heavy hitting names and unsung heroes of the underground. Welcoming the likes of Chicago-based producers Amir Alexander and Hakim Murphy who offer up gritty, authentic deep house numbers, through to the more hypnotic and electronic-led styles of Vlad Caia, Cristi Cons and Sonja Moonear’s take on Papa Sang Bass. As expected from such a highly praised DJ the track selection is impeccably placed, resulting in a smooth, ever-evolving and dynamic mix throughout.
Raresh ‘fabric 78’ is out on fabric Records 20th October 2014.
