compiled with love by DJ Harvey


There is a long-standing love affair between DJ Harvey and Pikes. As well as coming back for his third consecutive Mercury Rising residency, the legendary ‘DJs’ DJ will launch the brand new Pikes Records imprint DJ Harvey reaches for the deeper corners of his record bag to compile with love The Sound Of Mercury Rising

“Each track on this compilation have been features of my sets/program/night Mercury Rising at Pikes over the last three seasons.
The night itself has developed its own Balearic identity, not necessarily sunset sound but more an ecstatic groove for sundown to sunrise, and has been described not so much as a sound but more of a feeling. A feeling that lasts not only for the 10 plus hour sets but long after your night out.
On numerous occasions during these nights people would plead for track lists, mixes and CDs so in conjunction with my Pikes family we have created a new record label as a way not only to fulfill this need, but with broader aspirations for the future.
With tracks produced from 1976-2016, spanning 40-years and sitting side by side in disco harmony, this is not a ‘bootleg it and see’ compilation, this is an officially licensed project, fully legitimate with sometimes lengthy negotiation to track down all artists and ensure they are happy to be included, in some cases edited and of course paid.
This CD represents merely a facet in the diamond of the night that is Mercury Rising “

Presales of this compilation are loaded today 4th Aug to coincide with bandcamp donating 100% of their profits to benefit TLC which is the Transgender Law Center, this donation will be in effect from midnight to midnight pacific time
