There’s certainly enough to satisfy techno buffs hoping for a serious minimal workout, and this does, and arguably should, constitute the meat of Fabric 66. However, what truly resonates throughout the mix is the element of surprise that Klock deftly employs to challenge the listener’s own preconceptions of him as a DJ. But, for anyone who’s seen him perform live, are these ‘surprises’ really that surprising?
Klock has always managed to include a variety of electronic music that extends far past minimal techno, with this mix further acting to corroborate my suspicions that the ‘Berghain Sound’ tag is merely a symptom of the modern obsession for labels, facilitating the incessant urge to categorise dance music. If Fabric 66 is anything to go by, Klock is surely not far from shrugging of the shackles of this inhibiting association.
