Fabric 20 is a DJ mix compilation album by John Digweed, as part of the Fabric Mix Series. It was whittled down from a five hour set based on Digweed's time at Fabric.[1]

Genre[edit]

Fabric 20 is more similar to Digweed's Kiss FM radio show, rather than his previous progressive and house mixes.[2] The first half is punctuated with a techy, electro vibe.[3] The second half of the set features more of Digweed's uplifting sound that helped make him and Sasha a global phenomenon in the late 1990s.[4]

Critical reaction[edit]

Many fans have commented that Digweed is "too commercial" or mainstream for an entry in the Fabric series.[5][4] It received generally positive reviews,[5][6] but some critics such as Pitchfork Media found the mix to be nothing particularly special.[7]
