DJ selection DJ HARRl
This issue sees the launch of the Sub Club’s first mix album, with tracks selected and mixed by DJ Harri, resident at the club for over a decade. The album isn’t about relentless dance music, ’lt’s essence de Sub, ’ says Harri. ’Music that works in the Sub that won ’t work elsewhere’. Here Harri talks us through the compilation.
The Chance Reel House (Zoom). 'I had it as a 12in white label dub plate which they said they weren’t going to release, and if I hadn’t put it on, pe0ple wouldn’t have been able to hear it at all.’
The Solo Biosphere 2 (X Ray). 'A massive tune at Atlantis (vintage Sub night). Brings back memories of the ultra—violet lights in the Sub and the way that the music itself works in the environment of the club.‘
That Kid Chris Rhythmix (Digital Dungeon) ’Another Atlantis big tune. A toasted, dark disturbing track.‘
Ability Pressure (Dub Bassic) 'lt's got a really cool deep bass sound and is really easy to mix with most things.’ Renegade DJ Camacho (Sumo) 'lt blew me away when I heard it first and I had to go on a mission to find it.’
Soul Searcher UNl (Soul Furic) 'Goes down a storm wherever I play it. it even gets a reaction in Edinburgh.‘
Climax Smooth & Simmonds (Bomba) ’Uses a drum ’n’ bass vibe on a house record. The original pressing is quite fast but We brought it down for the album.’ Deep Down Robinson Wall Project (Sole Music) ’The Scottish connection from Glasgow's Paul Hunter and Colin Gate, one of their finest moments.’
Let's Get Jazzy KC Flight (Radikal) 'One from the early days of the Sub and Fever in Aberdeen way back in '88.’
Spring Once More The Unknown Factor (Defender) ‘Summery laid-back jazzy thing breaking into Detroity electro.’ Jazz Journey DJ Assassin (Phono) 'Much like the Smooth & Simmonds track.’ Sunburst EP The Takabayashi ’Really like the idea of a cheesy carnival track from Japan!
The Relics EP Abacus (Prescription) ‘Music made by angels.’
