In the summer of 1996, Dave Parry was approached by Keith Reilly to design and specify a sound and lighting system for his new club in Farringdon. The result was the seminal nightclub fabric!

Voted best club in the world for many years, much has been written about this historic nightspot that truly changed the face of sound and light system design and won many awards.

Allowed free reign for his imagination, Dave's design produced many firsts including the first 'line array' install, the first fully digital wireless network control , the first 'Timax' 3d sound system and many more.

The constant and continuing innovations caused Night Magazine to declare Dave Parry to be the most important club innovator of the decade in 2009. fabric also saw the introduction of the body kinetic dance floor, a system that transmitted ultra low frequencies through the dancer's body promoting a feeling of euphoria.

So advanced was the whole of fabric's system that it featured on the BBC's technology programme Tomorrow's World.
