goldie-9-7-16

“[Fabric] was a religion for all of us.”

In an interview with Channel 4 News, rave innovator Goldie said he would melt down his MBE in protest of Fabric’s closure. He suggested other DJs join suit:

“I’m wondering whether or not the likes of me, the likes of Jazzie B, Norman Jay, Pete Tong for that matter, should just trade our MBEs in, melt them down and put them in a pencil-pushers coffee, so it can taste a little bit sweeter for him today, so he feels more successful in killing counter culture and culture itself.”

The underground rave scene in Boston was going strong in mid 90s with parties like the Primary series and Plur, Plural, and Pluralism.
