DJ Harvey is one of the most enigmatic people you could ever hope to meet. His ‘anything goes, as and when he feels it approach to DJing, music and life has created some of the most out of sync, synergistic audio excursions and parties of the past 25 years.
He has always stayed one step ahead by doing exactly what he wants, regardless of opinion, as an army of one, A cult leader for a last generation of pirates.
Harvey's imagination ran wild from a big room banger named after the club ‘Berghain’, twisted psychdelic minimalism of ‘Gunship’ and ‘Little Boots’, to the Fleetwood Mac on Qualudes trip of ‘Tan Sedan’ ElectroDisco Funk of ‘I Want it’ and the now classic Next To You feat the vocals of Heidi Lawden.

Harvey’s Tales from the Nocturn if you like, a journey through night town or what happens in Harvey’s world from Dusk ‘till Dawn.
