FABRICLIVE.04 - Deadly Avenger

FABRICLIVE’s arch party-starter, Deadly Avenger, becomes the fourth DJ to contribute a mix to the clubnight’s bi-monthly series.

Despite losing the ability to taste and smell through a childhood accident, he employs the senses of touch, sight and sound to their fullest. As DJ, label-boss and producer, he has forged an original identity amidst a scene of soundalikes, weaving together an appreciation of the past and understanding of the present.

Regularly appearing in any of fabric’s 3 rooms, his fearlessly throwndown sets are notable for hip hop skills and hard-hitting beats. Since his early releases on Electron Industries as Sem, Deadly has released records through DC Recordings, Wall Of Sound and his
own label, Illicit.

He has remixed Manic Street Preachers, Travis and Money Mark and his debut album, Deep Red, which benefits from the production of FABRICLIVE cohort Howie B, is set for release later this year.

“I got into music through hip hop," explains Deadly Avenger. "When hip hop began I was just a kid, mucking around on turntables. I listened to all types of hip hop and it just got to the point where I wanted to do something of my own. I started making music with a mate, learning the equipment, and we just went from there.”

Throwing hooks like a heavyweight, FABRICLIVE 04 is a cut and paste, quick mix selection that captures Deadly Avenger’s boundary-free mixing method. Beginning with the cinematic ‘We Took Pelham’, his own re-placing of Bill Conti’s ‘Rocky’ score into Joseph Sargent’s 1974 statement of NYC-attitude, ‘The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three’, it moves through hip hop, breaks, roots and soul – seamlessly scratched, hacked and cut into an energetic, sonic onslaught.

Testing the sample spotters and defying the bootleggers, Deadly’s mindset is summed-up in squeezing The Nextmen and Dynamo Productions between the Jackson Sisters and James Brown.

“I play chopped up hip hop and party tunes. Within one record there’s actually three - there’s nothing repetitive in the records I play, it’s bang, bang, bang constantly. No fillers! This sounds exactly like me when I’m drunk and firin’. Except for the fact that there’s some proper, wicked mixing on this.”
