Dimension is a unique artist, carving his path to become a globally renowned producer and DJ, pushing his distinctive sound around the world without diluting the purity of his musical output. Who better, then, to helm FABRICLIVE 98. Released on 25 May, Dimension’s mix will be preceded by a very special launch party at fabric on 11 May.


A definitive snapshot of drum & bass in 2018, FABRICLIVE 98’s 56-strong tracklist features 22 exclusives from Dimension, Skrillex, Deadmau5, Chase & Status, Sub Focus, Calyx & Teebee, The Prototypes, Culture Shock, 1991, Metrik, Benny L, Turno, Dossa & Locuzzed and Fred V & Grafix – many of whom created music especially for this album. Also included is Dimension’s ‘Whip Slap VIP’, which will be made available as part of the compilation on 25 May 2018.


Dimension is an electronic music producer and DJ from London, United Kingdom. A man of few words who tends to let his music do the talking, Dimension is receiving mainstream success without deliberately releasing crossover music – striking the perfect balance between club and radio. Not only the creative mind behind his music, Dimension distinguishes himself through his passion for bold architectural design, sleek aesthetic and theological themes – this unique ethos has helped establish him as one of the most exciting, sought after producers in electronic music.


The rise of Dimension has been nothing short of remarkable. At an early stage of his career, Dimension was already turning heads within the drum & bass scene and specialist radio alike. A combination of effortless musicality and production prowess caught the attention of many producers and DJ’s such as Andy C, Sub Focus, Chase & Status as well as Skrillex and deadmau5.


Within the space of a few years, Dimension has received unprecedented support for his underground anthems such as ‘Whip Slap’, ‘UK’, ‘Techno’, and ‘Raver’ as well as collaborative effort ‘Rush’ with Wilkinson, which landed Dimension his fourth Hottest Record with Annie Mac on Radio 1.


Having embarked on his sold out debut UK tour at the start of 2018, Dimension returns to the capital to launch FABRICLIVE 98 at fabric on May 11th 2018, with a Room One launch party that also features Friction, Metrik, TC, Turno, 1991, and Kove (full listings information on page 2). This special event precedes summer festival appearances at Creamfields, Pukkelpop, We Are Electric, Boomtown, Electric Forest, Love Saves The Day, and his Amnesia Ibiza residency; with more new music and tours to follow (see dates below), 2018 will be Dimension’s strongest year to date.



“Of course, I wanted to make the mix special. I wanted it to represent my attitude towards the energy experienced at shows, but also appreciated the fact that the mix isn’t always going to be heard on a dance floor. I also wanted the mix to contain a lot of new music, hence why over half the track list has never been heard and is specifically unique to FABRICLIVE 98. Some of the most talented producers from all around the scene went out their way to create bespoke VIPs from their back catalogue, specifically for the mix. I truly hope the result is something that people are really excited to hear.

Andy C has announced he’ll be releasing the seventh edition in his benchmark mix album series, Nightlife’. Available early summer 2018, ‘Nightlife 7’ will be released on Ram Records.


Launched in 2003, each installment of ‘Nightlife’ has achieved seminal status and reflected the depth of production talent across drum & bass during that period. For the first time, Andy is encouraging new and emerging talent to be a part of it – by inviting them to submit exclusive music to be considered for the ‘Nightlife 7’ mix. All details can be found here including full terms and conditions for submission

Andy C said:

“Nightlife to me is a representation and snap shot of where I feel drum & bass is at in this moment in time. Right now it’s stronger than ever and I want to express this the best way I can”


With over 40 awards to date, Andy C’s career has been nothing short of a phenomenon. He’s sold-out Alexandra Palace and Brixton Academy with his own solo shows, played headline slots at the world’s greatest festivals including Creamfields, Glastonbury, EDC, and SW4, and released a string of phenomenal crossover anthems like ‘Heartbeat Loud’ and club tracks like ‘What Bass’, and ‘New Era’. He’s also the go-to remixer for the likes of Major Lazer, Sigala, London Grammar and beyond, and the d&b figure recently chosen to host the first drum & bass radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1, broadcast to over 100 countries. In 2017, Andy C sold out a 13 week residency (d&b’s first) at London’s XOYO.


As the owner and figurehead for Ram Records, which celebrated 25 years in 2017, Andy’s nurtured and developed huge headline artists such as Chase & Status, Wilkinson and Sub Focus, turning it into one of the world’s most respected independent operations across recordings and now festivals like EDC Las Vegas, Creamfields, and SW4 where Ram have hosted their own arenas and stages.


Andy’s main signature motif as a DJ is that he’s guaranteed to be packing tracks that no other DJ has. Hunting, digging, searching and signing: he is constantly immersed in new music. Not only does this ensure a wholly unique experience when you see him live, but it also gives Ram Records a front row seat when it comes to spotting new artists… As the likes of Loadstar, Wilkinson, Calyx & TeeBee, Frankee, Delta Heavy, Culture Shock, DC Breaks, Hamilton, Mind Vortex, Chords and many more can happily confirm.

Forward-Thinking Performance Instrument with Historic TR Rhythm Sounds, Samples, and Effects


Roland announces the TR-8S Rhythm Performer, an innovative new instrument that fuses Roland’s renowned rhythm machine legacy with modern sound design features tuned for live performance.


The TR-8S is filled with the most iconic TR drum sounds of all time, plus an extensive selection of samples from Roland’s vast library. The instrument also supports both mono and stereo user samples, and comes packed with hands-on controls and production tools that make patterns move and groove. Dynamic and inspiring, the TR-8S takes the rhythm machine to a new level of creative power.


Included in the TR-8S is every sound from the most sought-after TR drum machines, with authentic recreations of the 808, 909, 707, 727, and 606, as well as several modified versions. Powered by Roland’s highly acclaimed ACB technology, each machine is a detailed, component-level model that sounds and behaves exactly like the original hardware.

While TR sounds are vital when producing drum tracks, mixing and layering sounds is key for crafting all-new signature sounds that stand out in today’s music scene. In addition to TR sounds, users can pull from the TR-8S’s preset samples or import their own sounds via the SD card slot, giving them the ability to build custom dream kits with limitless sound combinations. Instant-access controls are available to adjust decay, tuning, and many other sound parameters.


The TR-8S also includes percussion-tuned effects for enhancing sounds with character, depth, and space. There’s a Master FX knob for processing the entire kit and a control knob for each channel, and both can be custom configured with favorite effects parameters for sound shaping on the fly.


Roland’s famous “TR-REC” step sequencer has been at the heart of electronic music production for decades. In the TR-8S, it’s been enhanced and modernized to be better than ever. Via the 16 TR-REC buttons and velocity-sensitive performance pad, users can develop intricate grooves and build detailed fills with velocity, accents, flams, and adjustable sub-steps.



The TR-8S sequencer is able to store 128 patterns, with eight variations and three fills contained in each. These patterns or variations can be triggered individually or chained together for evolving sequences. It’s also now possible to save the tempo and kit assignment (along with knob positions and effect settings) in patterns.


The TR-8S is equipped with connection options to seamlessly integrate with any setup. A stereo mix output is provided, plus six assignable audio outputs that allow individual drum sounds to be processed and mixed externally. There’s also a dedicated trigger output with its own sequencer track, and the assignable outputs can be reconfigured to output trigger signals if desired. Stereo audio inputs are provided as well, enabling users to connect and mix external sound sources. The TR-8S also functions as a multi-channel USB audio/MIDI interface, and supports AIRA Link for interfacing with other AIRA gear.
