As a showcase for Petre Inspirescu's sound, this is a decent collection of tracks. He is one of the few producers adhering to the minimal genre that is daring to dream big ideas. Think classical music influences, obscure and eerie samples and subtle changes of tempo and dynamics. Quite often he makes very long tracks that slowly develop over time.

I suppose the bigger question is, do we really need a showcase for Petre Inspirescu at this stage in his career? He has only really emerged as a major artist in the last couple of years. Some may see him as a potential heir to Villalobos and I suppose that is why he took up the opportunity to put out a full-length Fabric mix of all his own tracks, just like Villalobos did. Seems like a solid PR move from his standpoint.

While the Villalobos Fabric mix was a train wreck of bombastic, clashing ideas and WTF?! type moments, befitting of a producer bursting with creativity who felt (along with many of his fans) that he could try and do almost anything, from experimental kabuki to Latin American stompers, the Inspirescu edition is a much more polite affair. In fact, as a mix, it's a bit of a bore. There are some pretty tracks, some subtle tempo changes and some weird sounds you may not hear elsewhere. I think he also does a good job of letting some of his tracks play together. But the mix never really picks up much momentum. The shifts in mood feel like the difference between fourth and third gear, never even approaching first. There is so much time when you are only really hearing the minimal percussion. The end goes out with a long lull, like he is literally trying to put you to sleep.

If Villalobos is Picasso, Inspirescu is like Monet. Unfortunately fabric 68 feels more like a Monet screensaver, lacking emotion and merit of the artist's best work.
