DOWNLOAD: Mackaveli

We recently got the chance to chirpse 2-step revivalist and avid Bio Pot consumer Mackaveli. He's whipped up a mix in celebration of his forthcoming slot at fabric also... peep gang.

Sonic Router: Can you provide those who may not know you with a bit of background info?

Mackaveli: My names Mackaveli and I play UK Garage, Dubstep and Grime. New bangers and Old Skool gems from back when.

Outside of music who are you? What do you do on the daily?

I'm always stuck inside the music ride as I work for fabric and matter looking after online press and marketing on a daily basis. Other than that I mostly enjoy... my Xbox, Gym and Browns.

How did you get into Djing?

It all started with a brass as hell pair of Kam belt drive turntables about 10 years ago. My earliest memory of playing out has to be in a school sports hall in Essex on another bait pair of belt drive turntables with DJ EZ playing on the same bill, god knows how he coped with the wobble!

Can you name 3 artists/albums/whatevs that have most influenced your style to date?

Active Minds – 'Hobsons Choice'

Current Top 5 Records?

In no particular order…..

Zomby – The Lie
Darkstar – Aidy’s Girlfriends A Computer
Untold – Anaconda
Sticky – Triplets 2
Ramadanman – Humber

You can catch Mackaveli on Friday 13th in Room Three at fabric.
