This Monday’s exclusive FACT mix comes from El-B, one of UK garage’s defining figures and a touchstone for early dubstep.
His FACT mix consists of his headline set from our last party. He’s solo for the most part, then he’s joined by his former partner in Groove Chronicles, Noodles, for the last quarter of an hour – and the first time the two have DJed back to back at a club for what, a decade? Tracks from Hard House Banton, MJ Cole and more feature alongside new dubs from El-B’s Ghost label, and yes, it does feature ‘Stone Cold’. Without wanting to sound too much like fannies, this mix is a little bit of history. It’s not too often you can say that about something you can download in twenty minutes. MCing by Raw Smilez.
