Listen to: DJ Harvey’s R.A. Mix

Resident Advisor has marked a significant landmark in their excellent podcast mix series by recruiting legendary L.A.beats-boy, DJ Harvey, for a long ass, bad ass mix.

Number #300 is surely one of the weirdest mixes (I obviously don’t know for sure as I haven’t listened to all 300 like an uber-nerd) to be put together for RA. Forget cutting edge bass tracks or slices of contemporary electronic soundscapes, DJ Harvey’s mix is a raw, almost-disconcerting jigsaw of funk, psychedelic, rock and afro-centric tunes. Like a historic photo-documentary of carnivals over the past four or so decades, the mix throws up flashes of a thousand different places and time periods. All in dark party mode. All of which, at the very least, provides a bit of oomph to an otherwise potentially impotent Monday afternoon.

Listen to el Mix-o and read el interview-o.
