Locosollus - out this week and eminently desirable...

Gettin' Next to DJ Harvey from chris cruse on Vimeo.



The term DJ legend is bandied about far too much, in fact the moment I hear it the old bullshit detector (you know the one, it's back in the garage) starts up something fierce. This geezer deserves the term and plenty more. I particularly enjoyed it around 2 minutes in when he identifies one of the worst crimes against DJing in a very succinct and direct manner, there's some quality instrument tackle pon display too.
The filmitito is in celebration of Harvey's just released Locosollus album which I took receipt of today and can hugely, even highly, recommend. To give you an idea of the quality it has three remixes amongst its ten tracks, now usually that's a sure sign of space filling and slackness... but when you can call upon Andrew Weatherall, Lindstrom & Prins Thomas and Emperor Machine (who dispense a 20 minute excellentine epic) - well .. different story. You can guarantee there'll be a tune or three from it on next week's Stinky Grooves but if you want to avoid the pre-amble... then the album is available from Juno right here digitally or on CD. Amongst the albums of the year in my humble, and that's not said lightly...
