FACT Mix 87 comes from the man behind 2step legends Groove Chronicles and the associated DPR label, Noodles.
Steven Jude to those who know him best, Noodles is one of our favourite DJs and producers in the UK, and his FACT mix only puts him higher in that hierarchy. He founded Groove Chronicles in 1996, and it quickly established itself at the vanguard of UK club music, releasing a series of phenomenal tracks engineered by El-B. A distillation of R&B, jungle, broken beat and house influences, their 1998 single ‘Stone Cold’ is widely regarded as the creative high watermark of UK garage, and Burial speaks often of his admiration for it.
We’d also like to add that in an age when plenty of lesser DJs will kick off at a magazine for using a picture of them where their micro-house scarf’s fallen at the wrong angle, it’s nice to have a genuine great play ball with us using a picture where he looks like he’s just seen a ghost. Big up Noodles for being a sport.
