New book ‘Long Relationshps’ immortalises the DJs that never made it
New book celebrates the plight of the lesser known DJ
Former DJ and producer Harold Health has announced the release of his new book about the little-cited journey of the less successful DJ.
‘Long Relationships: My Incredible Journey From Unknown DJ to Small-time DJ’ is a biographical account of the writer’s own DJ career, albeit with a little bit less fanfare than the Fatboy Slims, and David Guettas of this world.
Described as a “biographical account of a DJ career defined by a deep love of music and a shallow amount of success”, ‘Long Relationships’ is the first book to explore the world of the vast majority of DJs; those who never make it big.
Harold Heath, now a full time music writer for the likes of DJ Mag, Beatport and Attack Mag, has also worked as a DJ, producer, ghostwriter and music technology teacher. Starting as a DJ in the late ‘80s, he began to make house music in 2001, resulting in a string of lesser-known releases, remixes and DJ sets across Europe.
Covering a lifelong love of electro, hip-hop, rare groove, acid house, rave and the UK underground club scene, the book spans roughly 30 years of Heath’s low-key love affair with dance music. Rather than high-flying VIP areas and bustling crowds, it contains first-hand accounts of low-level international travel, shady promoters, dodgy club security, and magical dance floor moments.
‘Long Relationships’ will be released in May 2021, and is up for pre-sale here.
