Jockey Slut founders launch new bi-annual electronic music magazine Disco Pogo
At his core, Melbourne-based producer, DJ and funk synthesist Harvey Sutherland, real name Mike Katz, is an innovator of the finest sorts. Having worked his way up through the ranks in Australia’s underground electronic scene, Katz turned his feelings of disconnect with modern dance music into an opportunity to create a sound of his own: one rooted in soul, disco and funk but with a refreshingly modern spin.
The producer has gone on to make waves around the world with a selection of EPs, garnering support from the likes of Jamie xx, Disclosure and more. In this time, Katz also spread his wings as a bandleader, touring internationally with his live ensemble and directing an 11-piece band for the New York boogie icon Leroy Burgess on his Australian tour.
In line with the release of Harvey’s latest single ‘Feeling Of Love’, and the announcement of his debut album ‘Boy’, the producer has helmed the latest Dummy Mix in our series. Speaking about his selections, Harvey says: “Made a mixtape of origin-story funk. Mondo classics, blog jams, album sides, no rare shit, no edits, just uncut gems. RIP James M’tume.”
