Baby Ford steps up for the next instalment in Fabric‘s esteemed mix series.

Credited as a true vanguard of the acid-house movement, Ford released his pioneering debut EP, ‘Oochy Koochy,’ back in 1988 and has since gone on to release four studio albums and numerous collaborations, not to mention founding his own labels Ifach, Trelik and Pal SL.

Ford’s long awaited Fabric mix arrives 10 years after he first played the revered club and, as he explains, features his current favorites, old and new: “The mix was recorded at the Ifach studio right here in London. I borrowed an E&S DJR400 rotary mixer from a friend and then I just picked a bunch of my favourite records – some were new tracks, some in-house productions and some classics. Then I pressed record and went for a take; a ‘good luck studio’ type of vibe with me trying to capture the moment in the mix.”
