Big fan of the AllSaints Basement Sessions. Have you seen these? Next time I'm in London, I'm so going to look into hitting one of these up. What's not to love about catching a live performance in a warehouse space below the E1 London design studios. The interviews they do too are top notch.

This  chat with DJ Harvey is from a while back, but figured I'd post it up since Harvey is headed back for another session with the folks. If you've heard a DJ Harvey set, you know the man has an uncanny ability to speak to the dancefloor through the records he plays. Wise beyond his years, he can also sit down and talk music and, well, at least keep this guy entertained for an hour.

For this particular episode, AllSaints travelled to the City Of Angels to catch up with Harvey in Venice Beach where he lives, surfs and roams the shore when he's not out merrymaking across the globe. Lots of gold was discussed, from his formative years in the UK, his era defining club nights Moist and SarcasticDisco, his introduction to NYC and Hip-Hop culture, his approach to production and his friendship with seminal New York DJ, Larry Levan.

And here's a few of their Live Sessions... enjoy.
