Hot shot UK Producer/DJ Joshua Harvey a.k.a Herve is one of the pioneers of the fidget house phenomenon. Harvey is one of the most productive producers to rise up in this new millennium. Operating under a number of various monikers such as Count of Monte Cristal a.k.a The Count, Voodoo Chilli, Young Lovers, Dead Soul Brothers and Action Man, he constantly is pushing forward with different production concepts. The fact that Harvey works under so many different guises allows him to diversify and avoid being pigeonholed under one particular sound which is something so many producers try to do, but few do it well like Harvey.
Harvey also collaborates as Speaker Junk with Trevor Loveys. Together they run the Speaker Junk label, and together with Dave ‘Switch’ Taylor also run the Dubsided label. These two labels are considered as an integral part of the whole fidget house movement.
Harvey’s most successful collaboration to date though is with Sinden as The Count on a track called ‘Beeper’ (which features on Ministry of Sound Mashed 4 and Ministry of Sound Sessions Five)
Herve’s discography is constantly growing and he has an ever impressive roster of artists that he has remixed. Some of his original productions consist of ‘What You Need Most’, ‘I Can Get Down’, ‘Cheap Thrills’ (which features on Ministry of Sound Sessions Five) and ‘Rocky Raver’.
In ‘Cheap Thrills’ Herve takes on Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, and in ‘Rocky Raver’ Harvey has taken on the Rocky theme and turned it into a rollocking electro house cut.
Herve has also remixed the likes of Chemical Brothers, New Young Pony Club, Roison Murphy, Princess Superstar, Bumblebeez and Unklejam, to name a few.
