Opening straight away with “Turn Your Sights Inward,” Hauff’s exclusive single freshly released on fabric Records, this mix spans a thrilling 77 minutes, featuring 19 tracks of banging, high-tempo, punchy electro, breakbeat, and techno, full of hammering percussion and squelchy acidic synths. It is matured and unpredictable, creating a balance between structure and chaos, combining classic tracks like Radioactive Man’s “Night Bus To Nowhere” (the self-titled album from 2001 by this icon was a real eye-opener for Helena) with yet unreleased gems, such as Magda Rot’s “Alter Simus.”
“With Alter Simus I felt comfort in darkness. I felt naturally drawn to the distinctive sound of the 303 bassline that is where it all started for me. The result of finding solace in times of isolation, after months without stepping on a dance-floor.” – Magda Rot
“Alter Simus” arrives at the culminating point of the mix, right after Nite Fleit’s “Naïve,” which is out through Helena’s own Return To Disorder label. The final track, Autechre’s remix of D-Breeze’s “Crazy For Love” from 1999, is now digitally available for the first time—it was originally released on the MASK 500 compilation record from the legendary Skam Records’ limited-edition series, pressed in just 500 copies.
fabric presents by Helena Hauff connects the dots between the past and the future, offering an experience that reflects retro nostalgia with a forward-thinking sonic landscape. Prepare to be transported to a dystopian yet darkly euphoric dancefloor.
“Turn Your Sights Inward” by Helena is out now on all digital platforms.
