[b]James Murphy[/b]’s out to make you sweat. His Fabric mix, co-compiled with [b]LCD Soundsystem[/b] drummer [b]Pat Mahoney[/b], 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 [b]The Fall[/b].

Commissioned by [b]Nike[/b]as 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 [b]Manuel Gottsching[/b]’s “E2-E4”.
