AllMusic Review by

Few drum'n'bass figures get the opportunity to release two widely distributed mix albums within two years, and few drum'n'bass fans would've picked anyone other than J Majik for the honors. Originally a producer first and DJ second, Majik used jungle's dark days (circa 1999-2001) to hone his turntable skills, and emerged as something more than before -- not just a Metalheadz auteur, but a true drum'n'bass renaissance man: label owner, producer, DJ, tastemaker. Fabriclive.13, his first volume in the London super (-respected) club Fabric's live mix series, is a tour de force in post-millennial jungle, reconciling the darker end of techstep (DJ Hazard, Ram Trilogy, Total Science) to the diva-led flair of acoustic-heavy Brazilian drum'n'bass (yes, there is a DJ Marky production here, but also two of Majik's own Infrared tracks clearly illustrating that the young Spratling knows how to change with the times). Majik always keeps a finger on the decks, barely letting a record spin for two minutes before replacing it, but sticking with the elements he likes to create a smooth mix of superb dance music.
