Pete Tong MBE, Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim), Carl Cox, the Chemical Brothers, Annie Mac, Sasha, DJ Goldie MBE, Andy C and BBC Radio 1's B.Traits are just a few of the famous DJs who have come out in support of Fabric.

EDM itself has taken hold of America and turned itself into a £4billion global industry. This is not sustainable. No genre is.

Talisco's debut album Run is out on 19th May, and you can watch the short film that showcases three of his tracks below. Directed by Zack Spiger and Matt Larson, it's a great short film. However it's not safe for work as it features a fair amount of violence, six breasts and three great tracks.
