You know it's a bad sign when you have to force yourself to listen to an album more than once. Fabric 32 by Luke Slater is one of those albums for me. Classified as "techno" this album has Slater attempting to hybridized multiple genres of electronica. Perhaps to complicate the classification scheme even more? Like a failed chemistry experiment, Fabric 32 does end up with a final product, but it is far from pleasant.
To make it even more painful, you can hear some great rifts of music and groovey beats in the distant background on multiple tracks, but they are quickly swallowed up by noise and garbage each and ever time. Horrible track selection and horrible mixing. Sorry Slater, try again.
