Fabric has sold its legendary Room Two soundsystem on eBay for £11,700, it has been announced today.
The unnamed new owner beat out 95 other bids to win the auction, with half the proceeds from the sale being donated to Corsica Studio's co-founder Amanda Moss to help her fight against a rare form of ovarian cancer.
The soundsystem has now been replaced by a new Pioneer Pro Audio rig, meaning the old system was surplass to requirements and could be sold off.

Four Tet has warned that not enough is being done to save London nightlife in a new interview about how the UK capital’s nightlife is in jeopardy.
“What worries me is nothing’s being done fast enough,” Four Tet, real name Kieran Hebden, told Pitchfork. “We’re gonna lose everything, and then everyone’s gonna wake up and be like, ‘Oh well, we don’t have any nightlife, we should try and build some up now.’ That doesn’t come out of nowhere—it takes years.”

There will also be a speech by Westwood at the event, alongside sustainable energy fund Ecotricity’s Dale Vince, with a DJ set from A Guy Called Gerald.
Call Super will join the long list of esteemed contributors to Fabric's self-titled mix series later this month.

Pretty much the whole of clubland was appalled when Fabric had its license revoked a few months back — after all, if Fabric could be closed so easily, what hope was there for other clubs?

Fabric announced it will officially reopen on Friday 6th January with a weekend of celebrations that has “family very much at its core”.
Now, the Farringdon venue has revealed the line-ups for the rest of January and February, with Ricardo Villalobos, Maceo Plex, Loco Dice, Seth Troxler, Eats Everything, DVS1, Levon Vincent and many, many more all locked in to spin.
