An interview with DJ Harvey

DJ Harvey

DJ Harvey interview tracing his musical heritage over the years. From Hip Hop DJ through to his residency at The Ministry Of Sound via The Tonka Sound System right up to his present day Black Cock and Map Of Africa projects.

Harvey talks openly about the music he loves with a passion whilst name checking some of the greats as major influences on his life spent playing and making music.

Insightful comment provided with Harvey's take on Balearic, his early years at The Ministry Of Sound, the original Ibiza DJ's, The Tonka Sound System philosophy, Acid House, Larry Levan, how to make re-edits, how to build the perfect sound system and what makes a good party.

All the time coming across as humble of his achievements and part he has played in the progression of modern day dance culture, Harvey is a pleasure to listen to on this one hour interview that he did for The Red Bull Music Academy in 2005.
