THE DARK ALBUM REMIXES
Described by Polish underground music blog muno.pl as "the sound of the Summer" my LP, The Dark Album is causing quite a disturbance! Richie Hawtin got behind it, playing My Gift in several of his DJ sets, while I ended up on the front page of Mixmag.
As my world tour gets underway, so does the first volume of scintillating remixes, these are a collection of reworks from handpicked artists whose music I personally love.
“Ross Harper you did it well. This will be big!”

FEEL EP - A STORY ABOUT UKRAINE
Due to the crimes against humanity being perpetrated by the Russian state against innocent Ukrainians, I thought it would be right to bring my FEEL EP back to the front of my website.
The background story...
As I stood in the crowd at the Kultura Zvuka club in Kharkiv, eastern Ukraine, my head down, eyes closed, dancing to DJ Nastia and Daria Kosolova playing the warm up set for the NECHTO Records party, there was this sensation of someone nudging their foot against the side of my foot.
When I opened my eyes, there was no one there. So I closed my eyes again and continued to dance. But there it was again. The sense of someone nudging their foot against my foot.
So I opened my eyes and looked round, there was a dark haired girl standing next to me, about two or three feet away. But her foot was nowhere near mine. So again I closed my eyes, and kept dancing, it was a deep groove as the gig was still warming up, so my dance was chilled, like a meditative building of inner presence.
But there it was again this sensation of someone gentle putting their foot, their shoe against my shoe, and applying some pressure, nudging against the side of my foot. So I opened my eyes a third time, and there was only this girl who could have done this, but her foot was nowhere near mine, she was still several feet away.
So I thought to myself “what is going on here? I must try and talk to her”. So I tentatively said “hello” in English, but she replied that she did not really speak very good English. And I noticed on her wrist, there was a tattoo in what must have been Russian handwriting, I asked her what it meant, she replied, “FEEL”.
And I thought to myself, yes, that makes sense, FEEL.
So when I returned to the UK I began writing this EP, constantly checking in with myself, reflecting back to that moment, in that space, with those soulful people, and that magical girl with that special, special gift, FEEL.
