Tommy Harrison Guest Mix

Dusk Dubs

I’ve been producing mixes for about 15 years now. I mastered vinyl and turntables at a young age, and more recently CDJ’s so there’s no doubting my ability to mix tunes. But mixing is only a small part of myself being a DJ. It’s the selection process, where I spend the time finding the records, listening and feeling the sounds, imagining playing those records to others and having them peek a little into my soul, that is what makes me the DJ that I am. I love finding that one tune that will make the hair stand up on someone’s neck. The moment that they connect with the sound, it’s the most incredible feeling for me. My mixes span many genres, not confining myself to one genre of music, or one style of producing mixes. But there is always sense to it, a purpose. I love performing in clubs and festivals, but I equally love studio mixes where I can really express myself.

Dusk Dubs has been the perfect platform for me to push the spotlight back onto the music, rather than the performance. Every week, someone new provides their choices, and their mix-tape is released on Sunday night, with artwork and a few words from the selector about what the music means to them. I play all records in full, back to back, giving them breathing space and allowing them to shine. They are simply sequenced together into one mix-tape. The selector needs not to think about the mixing, nor (more importantly) do they even need to be a DJ or be able to mix. It allows music lovers from all walks of life, of all ages and abilities, with varying tastes, to dig deep into the vinyl crates, the CD racks, the boxes of tapes and the darkest corners on their laptops and internet to provide a selection of records that means something to them without having to ‘make it work’ or ‘please a crowd’. What you get, is a purity that focuses everything on the music. I couldn’t love the concept more.
