‘When I first started going to Fabric, it became a regular thing to go and dance, literally all night, to drum ’n’ bass, in Room Two mainly, as [record labels and club nights] Metalheadz or Hospitality used to be there a lot. It was solid D&B. One night, I spent eight hours in there, just dancing really hard.
‘Fabric just feels quite homely for me. I feel like everyone there – the bouncers and the staff – care about you having a good time. You’re not treated like cattle. And also, I’d like to shout out nights by [record label] Hessle Audio. It’s really something special when they do their full takeovers of the club.
‘I remember once taking bags of apples to the club, when they were in season. I lived in Wales at the time and had an abundance of really nice apples from our orchard. I just felt like Fabric gave me so much, that I needed to give something back. I offered them to the bouncers – some of them were like, ‘‘No, are you mad?”, but a few of them said, ‘‘That’s amazing, thank you so much!” I do occasionally take chocolate brownies or cookies as well. I just feel that Fabric is always giving me good parties, so when I can and when it’s practical I take some baked goods along with some good vibes.
‘Once, I left my trainers back home in Wales and had to go out in London and buy a new pair. I bought a pair that were a size too small and therefore didn’t have enough surface area for me to stay upright when I was dancing. The club was so packed and I was dancing so hard – I did fall over a few times, but I just fell into other people and they picked me up.
‘Years ago, my housemate and her friend were employed by Fabric to hand out cups of tea in the queue outside, to keep people warm in winter, which is a really friendly thing for the club to do. Thank you ever such a lot for the good times, Fabric!’
