Artist Biography

b. 1963, England. Famed for his seven-hour-long DJ sets, especially his acclaimed New Hard Left nights at London’s Blue Note club, Harvey’s interest in music developed at the same time as his passion for skateboarding. He was exposed to a wide variety of music in his youth, his initial appetite for punk, metal and electronica eventually overtaken by his interest in the burgeoning dance scene. This background accounts for the eclecticism of his DJ sets, which can incorporate anything from the Clash and Led Zeppelin to up-to-the-minute Masters At Work remixes. He is certainly one of the few house DJs prepared to admit to being a fan of Deep Purple. He formed the Tonka DJ collective in the early 90s before establishing the Moist night at Covent Garden’s Gardening Club. From there he became a resident DJ at the Ministry Of Sound. It was here that his ‘live edits’ of rock and dance songs won him a reputation as an innovator behind the decks.
