When it comes to justifications for jocking DJ Harvey, where do we start? His legendary mixes and club residencies since he was an Acid House young'n? The lysergic boogie he creates today as one half of Map Of Africa? The fact that dude named his vinyl-only edits label Black Cock?!?! All are perfectly valid, but only goofballs (and lazy journalists—we see you!) talk up DJs for their resumes. We've been fortunate enough to enjoy Harvey on the decks a couple of times, and each night was chock full of disco surprises—so history aside, we recommend him because he's fun NOW. Check the capo di tutti capi of space bump play the latest edition of his Sarcastic Disco party on May 10th in Los Angeles, venue to be announced once it gets closer to the weekend, keep hitting refresh or call the mysterious number on the flyer.
