It’s surely not an understatement to say that the nation (or at least the bearded sub-strata) is currently gripped with Harvey-fever. The prodigal son is playing long-awaited UK gigs in Manchester and London in the next few days (and 500MH will be front-and-centre for the latter).
“Harvey who?” some of you may be saying…to which we simply respond, this one.
I tend to shy away from anything that has a cult following: consequently I’ve never seen the film Trainspotting, never watched an episode of The Wire and never leafed through the pages of a Kurt Vonnegut novel. But I’m prepared to make an exception in the case of DJ Harvey.
The mere mention of Harv’s name immediately divides the opinions of bearded men on Internet forums but there can be few fans of underground dance music unfamiliar with his 25 year contribution to the “scene” (beginners please start here).
Whatever your views of the man, 500MH always prefers to let the music do the talking and what better way to round off the Indian (Native American?) Summer than the legendary Moonshadow mixes – Harvey at his most horizontal.
Now…parts 1 & 2 are easy enough to find elsewhere on t’web, but I’ve only been able to obtain part 3 & 4 as zip files containing separate tracks. So, as requested by a couple of people, I’ve carefully stitched these back together and am happy to present all four for your listening convenience…
