Maribou State are next up on ‘fabric presents’ series


Having cut their electronic music teeth at the club as teenagers, Maribou State return to Farringdon for a sublime contribution to the ‘fabric presents’ series.

Since first playing at the club almost a decade ago, Chris Davids and Liam Ivory of Maribou State have gone on to release two critically acclaimed albums, alongside recent sell-out tours across UK, USA and Europe. But they never forgot their roots. Since their teenage years, they frequented fabric, taking the train down from their homes in Hertfordshire. Attending DJ Hype’s legendary ‘True Playaz’ night gave them experiences that would lay the musical foundations for years to follow.

“fabric was a hugely influential milestone for us, being the first nightclub we used to attend regularly. It gave us an early insight into club culture and played a massive part in shaping our relationship with electronic music today.”

“In this mix, we wanted to create a world of music that in its entirety you wouldn’t expect to hear within the walls of fabric, but would reflect the hours spent before heading to the club; drinks at a friend’s house, the journey into London, travelling on the underground and the anticipation in the build-up beforehand. We captured and used a bunch of field recordings of us re-taking the journey to and from the club to help this narrative.”

Maribou State will launch the compilation at fabric on Sunday, 29th March. For tickets and full listings visit fabric website from Wednesday 5th February: fabriclondon.com/maribou-state

Grahame Farmer

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.
