This streams kicks off in fabric's Room 2 at 2pm with Worldwide FM founder Gilles Peterson playing with BBC Radio 6 tastemaker Jamz Supernova, followed by deep-digging pair Jane Fitz and Carl H going back to back. Notorious duo Secretsundaze step up at 4pm and Daniel Avery plays at 5pm.
Two back-to-backs follow between Bristol’s Danielle and can you feel the sun co-founder Parris, with Hyperdub affiliates Shannen SP and Ikonika then running heavy bass and broken beats. After a penultimate hour from RAGE’s Fabio & Grooverider, fabric resident Craig Richards closes down.
James Priestley, Secretsundaze co-founder: “We’ve been very fortunate to have played in Ukraine over the years, particularly at Closer in Kiev, and have built cherished connections and friendships with the hugely warm and hospitable residents of the city. Hearing first hand tales of evacuating cities, chaos at borders and taking up arms in defence has been heartbreaking.
We were due to play at Closer this weekend. Instead now, we wanted to help bring together this live stream - a show of solidarity with the people of Ukraine against Putin’s unprovoked aggression and a chance to raise money for humanitarian causes on the ground.”
