John Tejada Celebrates the Release of his Fabric 44 Mix Tonight at Nacional

It's a commonly understood fact among electronic dance music fans that a Fabric mix is a pretty big deal for a DJ, an indication that he or she has "arrived." It's perhaps the most exclusive and respected series of mixes coming out these days; each year the legendary London club asks a handful of the best DJs to compile one, and from there you can pretty much guarantee that the DJs will have their next year of weekends booked. It's a big deal is what we're saying.

Tonight LA's John Tejada celebrates the release of his Fabric 44 mix -- and the first Fabric mix from any LA DJ. It's a smart, deep minimal techno mix that moves from bumping tracks to softer ambient ones, includes a few nice selections from the Palette All-Stars (Tejada's "band" with co-conspirator Arian Leviste) and a number of others from Tejada's Palette Recordings. If you're not a fan, think again and head down to Nacional. (We'll have a longer review of the mix in the weeks to come, but for now check out Dennis Romero's LA Weekly feature on Tejada from 2008.
