Dave Harrington Group – Become Alive


The Dave Harrington Group will release Become Alive via Nicolas Jaar’s Other People on April 15th.

“I used to be someone who didn’t really care about recording. I would play house parties, free jazz in art galleries, whatever. All live, all the time… When we started Darkside, that’s when I became really excited about making a record and started seeing recording and working in the studio as a creative outlet. Then, I got really inspired by that specific moment in history when jazz improvisation meets studio technique, the late ’60s, early ’70s—and I just wanted to get a bunch of close friends together to play.” Dave Harrington (Darkside)

Listen to the title track below. Other People will release Become Alive on April 15th.

The 2nd Annual Holiday Spectacular is happening on Dec 13 @ LPR

This year in anticipation of the 2nd Annual DH & Friends Holiday Spectacular I’ve decided to give out some presents. I’m calling it the 12 days of remixes and I’ll be sharing all of the un-released remixes and edits I’ve made and have been playing in my DJ sets over the last couple years. Every day between now and the Holiday Spectacular on December 13th I’ll be positing new music on my soundcloud – the remixes and edits include Beyoncé, Nils Frahm, Tyondai Braxton, Empress Of, Steve Reich, and more…

Happy Holidays,
