Although Oliver Jones has been playing house sets for years, his reputation as a dubstep artist has been difficult to shake. As have the people turning up at his gigs still expecting to hear ‘Midnight Request Line’. As a summary of Skream’s current style, ‘Fabriclive 96’ spells things out far more clearly — if less concisely — than putting (house set) next to his name on flyers. After warming up with some dubby house, things really hit their stride with Santos Rodriguez’s tribal drums, leading into a run of big-room tunes such as the evangelical techno of Floorplan’s ‘Made Up In My Mind’, Radio Slave’s acid epic ‘Screaming Hands (Krautdrums Mix)’ and Greg Venezia’s trancetastic ‘Lies (Of Unsound Mind)’. While some of Skream’s early house sets were wobblier than the basslines in his old dubstep productions, ‘Fabriclive 96’ shows he’s now found his feet a bit more.
