Harvey Bassett once banged drums for a John Peel-approved punk band, before ditching them for the drum breaks he heard in the Bronx back in the ’80s. Since then, Harvey has spun the world over, from London’s Ministry of Sound to his Sarcastic Disco parties. Liable to be Loft-styled, acid-house heavy, space-discofied, leftfield, or all of them at once, Harvey gets misconstrued as “The DJ’s DJ,” when in fact he’s just the consummate party-starter. He’ll close out Sunday Best, Brooklyn’s most resplendent outdoor dance party, in fine style.
