Editorial Reviews

As fabric's musical director, Craig Richards has not only defined the musical output of the world's most iconic nightspot, but in doing so has shaped British underground music. Craig has been with fabric since its birth and has revolutionized the concept of a residency. Always allowed complete freedom to invite artists and program them around his own regular weekly performance, his forward-thinking attitude continues to be a guiding light on the musical horizon. The Nothing Special allows his versatility to shine through further as he invites his most admired live acts to Saturdays at fabric for an irregular series of obscure affairs featuring the likes of Shackleton, Deadbeat, Pole and more. "After an eleven year residency at fabric I wanted to create a night that required me to play all night around Live acts, setting the scene for each one as the evening progresses. Playing a gentle deep warm up for Moritz Von Oswald, or a twitchy electro set before Dopplereffekt, or a disco set before Emperor Machine, all of which I am capable of because of the variety within my residency." Craig Richards The Nothing Special reflects the diversity and steadfast nature he is renowned for and echoes his obscure and considered approach to his craft. Starting back in the mid 90s with Andrew Weatherall and Keith Tenniswood's Two Lone Swordsmen guise the mix ebbs and flows in a timeless manner taking in rare cuts from Conscious Minds on his own Tyrant label, Housey Doingz from fellow fabric resident Terry Francis's Wiggle imprint and an unknown cut from early Chicago legend Gemini, whose work is notoriously difficult to license. With most choices unfamiliar, the mix is typical of Craig's bold approach and resolute manner and imparts untold rewards after close inspection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabric 58 --- 11 years of residency December 3, 2011
By Eissman
Format:Audio CD
Craig Richards I have always admired for his willingness to dig deep into the crates and find the obscure gem, dust it off, and bring it to the public's ear.

Oftentimes his mixes are cerebral and concentrate on sounds and textures, but he keeps things interesting no doubt and often find myself reaching for the tracklist to see just what is playing.

As 11 year resident of the forward thinking and even creative Fabric nightclub in London, this guy is a DJ and a very good one at that. To suggest otherwise is simply shameful.

Nice stuff on Fabric 58. Rico's Helly is a old school classic I can remember from the days of MTV's AMP show and I love how he revisits the same chord progression sound 11 songs later with Marcel Janovsky's track. The Neville Watson remix of Semtek "Lotus Eaters" is class. I love the vibe Craig establishes from track 12-15 to set up the end.

While Tyrant CD is one of my all-time favorite mixes as well as Craig's Fabric 01, this is a nice tribute to his accomplished career at Fabric.

One day, I will make it to that glorious space!

5.0 out of 5 stars DJ Master Class January 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
As a dj, I can't help but admire what Craig has done here. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I think he's chosen some of the best producers around (from Carl Finlow to Joel Mull to Convextion), but his flow and drive are impeccable. Each tune maintains a groovy, techy flow that keeps your head nodding and your foot tapping. This is exactly the kind of mix that I feel is often missing from the massive numbers of CD compilations. The main thing you have to keep in mind here is that there is no anthemic, hands-in-the-air tune... it just wouldn't fit. It is a mix that requires a little patience, but trust me, this one will grow on you. Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Zzzzzzzzzz....... September 13, 2011
By Boony
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Couldn't have come up with a more appropriate title for this release.

"NOTHING SPECIAL" indeed. A boring mix that starts and goes nowhere. Props to Craig for all of his accomplishments, but DJ'ing just ain't his "cup'a'teaa'!"
