House Music All Night Long - FAITH Fanzine Vol.3 Issue 1 - Autumn 2020

Faith Fanzine in Athens

''We're back. Faithfanzine returns in its third incarnation for more HOUSE, HOUSE and more FUCKING H.O.U.S.E. We're in strange, dangerous but inspirational and aspirational times, and the tone is the first issue of Faithfanzine V3 must reflect this..."

These are the first words of the brand new issue of FAITH Fanzine, which saw the light of a release again after an 8-year hiatus.
Just for the record, FAITH Fanzine was born right before millenium, in 1999, first as a printed mag for seven years and it was counting a total number of 24 issues till 2012. It has covered a wide range of stars such as Franky Knuckles, Derrick Carter, Dennis Ferrer, DJ Harvey just to name a few.
And now, the odd year of corona, the hard-working crew behind it, namely Terry Farley, Stuart Patterson and Dave Jarvis have collaborated with Defected Records in order to make a new bright and aspring start, by using the motto 'different strokes for House folks'.

As it is rumoured, the Mag aims to come out quarterly and it's out for free worldwide (and in selected record stores throughout UK), paying only the postage costs with a optional (but 100% worth of course) donation of 1 £ for Mind Charity.

Great features in that I absorbed reading them, excellent content and contributions.
Some of the highlights in: The big tribute to Ron Hardy, one of the original House dons, an interview with Josh Doherty from Posthuman getting an insight on 'I Love Acid' club nights, plenty of Acid and House charts by many DJs, Ian Snowball interview with Marshall Jefferson and Harry Dennis for their Jungle Wonz project and the 35-year old previously unreleased material that got recently released on 12" Vinyl. Eats Everything talking about the future and music industry facing the current situation with corona virus and a great article courtesy of Leo Zero analyzing his Acid House experience taking place in february 1988 on Delerium and last but not least a big homage feature to the legendary Sir Andrew Weatherall.

This is my recommendation for this weekend, for this month and for your House rapture! Show your support for this new try made by thirst and devotion for the House music movement. From its faithful start to the (r)evolution.

You may grab your copies now via the Defected Records store:
