Mix Of The Day: Samuel Kerridge fabric 20 Minute Live Set

Samuel Kerridge is a man who's risen to prominence in experimental circles in just the last 2 years. Firstly through his 'Auris Interna' release on Horizontal Ground, which lead to him being picked up by Regis for his legendary Downwards label. Two EPs followed, 'From The Shadows That Melt The Flesh' and 'Waiting For Love', before the end of 2013 saw the UK producer's debut album, 'The Fallen Empire'.

His gritty, distorted, slow pulsating rhythms perfectly encapsulate the modern Downwards sound. Full of eerie atmospherics and thunderous basslines, it's almost impossible to experience Kerridge's music without sporting an involuntary gurn slapped all over your face. We caught his live set at this years CTM Festival and it was one of the stand out moments (of many incredible moments) of the whole extended weekend.

After performing in many of Europe's top clubs, like Berlin's Berghain and The Rex Club in Paris, as well as Womb in Tokyo, this weekend he'll finally be making his debut outing in London's infamous fabric Room 2. To mark the occasion (as they generally do) Samuel has provided a 20 min mini live set for the club's blog. You can check out the accompanying interview on the fabric website and have a listen to mix on the Soundcloud player below. Also his Boiler Room London set is well worth checking out

As we previously mentioned, Kerridge can be found performing live in Room 2 at fabric. He'll be following on from the ever present Terry Francis and before Mr techno himself, Marcel Dettmann. Tickets are available through the fabric website
