‘Walking out of the cold and into Fabric is like entering your best nightmare. Reality falls by the wayside and you don’t have a care in the world, especially not the hot sweaty bodies enveloping you or the sticky floors. Instead, you feel the energy from the masses and your muscles pulsate with the beat. The overwhelming experience is simply people from all over the globe partying until the early hours.
It can get a little crowded, but you know you can always be and do whatever you want in Fabric. It’s a shared experience: the music, the space, the people – it’s about bringing everyone together, but also being an individual and having a complete sense of anonymity.
Although I mix it up between the club’s various rooms, as I’m a dedicated fan of drum and bass the majority of my eight, physically exhausting, dancing hours are usually spent in Room Two, where the music stays in your bones. Fabric is somewhere that you can dance for hours and feel like it’ll never end. The buzzing atmosphere remains with you, even when you leave.’
