Premiere: House Don Hervé Takes Us Back In Time With The '2006-2008 Mixtape'


The latter half of the '00s were a great time if you were a fan of electro, house music or any of the many iterations. It was around the time that Diplo was producing for M.I.A, Justice and Simian Mobile Disco reigned supreme, and Sinden was working with a North London producer called Joshua “Hervé​” Harvey (aka The Count Of Monte Cristal) as The Count & Sinden. Yes, dubstep's popularity was increasing exponentially, but we're talking about house music and it was still a pretty good time to rave if you weren't a fan of big, noisy bass music.

To remind us just how fun house music (or fidget or electro house or whatever you want to call it) was back then, Hervé​'s put together this neat little retrospective. Just look at the tracklist and you'll see how many big tunes there were, and how many of them featured Hervé​ in some way. Even the remixes, which feature prominently, were often the versions that took off (Kidda's “Under The Sun”, for example), eclipsing the originals with Hervé​'s instinct for the dancefloor.
