Fabriclive36: James Murphy And Pat Mahoney / LCD Soundsystem – 45:33

Two fresh dispatches from DFA HQ

Trending Now

James Murphy’s out to make you sweat. His Fabric mix, co-compiled with LCD Soundsystem drummer Pat Mahoney, is a mix of unashamed disco glitz (Chic, Daniel Wang, New York’s ZE Records) seemingly designed to confuse up post-punk stragglers hoping for The Fall.

Meanwhile, LCD’s “45.33” finds its way to CD for the first time. Commissioned by Nikeas an exercise mix for iPods, this euphoric, largely electronic set finds Murphy adapting DJ dynamics for the running machine. The checkerboard sleeve, meanwhile, hints at one key influence – the pulsing, layered synthetic Krautrock of Manuel Gottsching’s “E2-E4”.
