Grime minister, Logan Sama, has been called to mix the latest edition of FABRICLIVE (due out Sept. 25), and for the first time in the compilation's history, there'll also be a vinyl version. The CD edition features all 24 vocal versions, while the vinyl will consist solely of the unmixed instrumental versions. Otherwise, there'll also be a digital bundle with both versions of the release. One of the instrumentals to be featured on the set is Rapid's "3rd Eye", a Ruff Sqwad instrumental that will, if you buy the CD version, feature Roachee, Stamina, So Large, Rival and Maxsta all doing their thing over the big, bassy riddim.
Logan had this to say about the release and how he went about putting it together: "To be invited to record a FABRICLIVE mix was a great honour. I wanted to make a real statement so I called up the producers I have been supporting over the last couple of years and asked them to create something special for me. I spent several months collecting acapella bars and went about building a sonic collage over my instrumental mix. Keeping the live mix and live performance energy that is so pivotal to the grime experience was vital, the mix managed to capture that and also attain a higher level of audio quality than is usually available to a live set."
