a quick chat with Harri & Dom..

In advance of Harvey dropping in at Sub Club in Glasgow this weekend, we caught up with main men Harri & Domenic for a very quick chat…

 

Hi Guys, thanks for taking a few minutes for this, So… Harvey is in next weekend then. I believe he’s not played in Scotland for nearly 15 years, but have your paths crossed a great deal before?

I met Harvey last time he played the Sub Club and once I think in Plastic People, when it was on Oxford St…..so not a great deal.

I imagine the Californian surf’s a bit different than Greenock!  but have either of you ever had designs on moving somewhere with a slightly less challenging climate/different dancefloors?

Domenic lived in Barcelona for a few years and I stayed in Aberdeen for a few years…does that count ?

Following on from that, how much do you tailor your sets to the guests you have down to the club, as its been a fairly diverse selection over the years?

Just depends on the night really, usually I would try and play an appropriate warm up and not try and steal the guests thunder.

Also (and be honest now) have you had guests through where you’ve thought, ‘hmmm maybe that didn’t really work!’ ?

Most of the guests we have had generally know the score and play well. Its all down to personal taste though….just because I might not perhaps enjoy someone else’s music doesn’t make it rubbish. One mans meats another mans poison.

Obviously you’re famous for holding it down at the Sub Club since time immemorial, but in terms of travelling & playing elsewhere which I know you do pretty consistently, what other spots particularly keep calling you back?

I always enjoy Ireland, festivals in Croatia…Edinburgh was amazing a couple of weeks back. London’s usually good….everywhere really :)

DJ’ing double acts: always seem a good idea to me, enabling you to have a long piss or fall over drunk safe in the knowledge your faithful partner is doing the business in your absence! Do you guys still relish playing back to back & how do you structure it when you play away from Sub Club?

Normally when we go away, we toss a coin to see who starts first, and Domenic always wins….strange.

Obviously Sub Club’s licence is until 3am, I always thought that kind of ‘line in the sand’ (if you like) allows DJ’s to leave them ‘wanting more’ and make real end of night moments that stay with people, rather trying to pump life into a dwindling dancefloor at 9am! What’s your take on that?

I completely agree, its good to see the finishing post ahead and go for it!

You have also been doing some parties at Dance Tunnel in London recently, how’s that been going:  Lots of exiled Scots out on manoeuvres?

Yes, we had a ball at the Dance Tunnel a month or so ago, was like a Scottish reunion. The Nest in Dalston last week was also really good.

I read that the Boiler Room you guys did with Optimo got like 40,000 views or similar, Does the growth in popularity of that medium surprise you at all, and have you checked out many other BR shows online?

My son Jasper introduced me to the Boiler Room, I have only really watched Mr Gs Boiler Room. It is a concept I find hard to grasp or understand, but hey ho, I’m not complaining.

Finally, 20 years of Subculture: can you still remember the first one and any records that might have got played?

No :-P……The saying goes, if you remember it, you weren’t there!

DJ Harvey – Wildest Dreams

DJ Harvey releases a Wildest Dreams’  7″ for Record Store Day on Smalltown Supersound today.

Wildest Dreams are a Modern Day Equivalent of the L.A wrecking crew.

They make music inspired by the landscape of L.A and it’s surrounds for your road and acid trip. The brainchild of Harvey Bassett as a means to keep his multi-instrumentalist hand in so to speak.  The album was recorded over a week a couple years ago and unearthed by Smalltown Supersound.

Hunt it down wherever you do your shopping !
