DJs are calling on New London Mayor to stand up for fabric



The dance music and DJ community have taken to twitter this afternoon to ask London’s new mayor Sadiq Khan to speak up for fabric.

News broke yesterday that fabric will be indefinitely closed until Islington Council have convened on a decision about the club’s license, following the deaths of two 18-year-olds to suspected drug overdoses, one of the men died on Saturday, August 6th, while the other died on June 25th.

When Khan was elected earlier this year he promised to save the city’s nightlife saying, “I don’t want young and creative Londoners abandoning our city to head to Amsterdam, to Berlin, to Prague where clubs are supported and allowed to flourish.”  It’s these comments that have now got fabric regulars including Daniel Avery, Eats Everything, Skream, Scuba, Artwork, Plastician, Chase & Status and more to ask the new mayor to speak up.

Join the cause by tweeting him @sadiqkhan

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
