Thank you

Meet The Residents: Harri Pepper

Please introduce yourself – 

My name’s Harri I’m one of six, raised in my family’s arts centre and music venue on the West Coast of Wales. I DJ everywhere I can whenever I can for as long as I can, because I love it and I’m on a mission to find the music that makes people feel good and dance.

What does your record collection say about you? 

I buy records anytime anywhere for many reasons, I love digging through all genres in all different locations and I have been at it since I was 15. I guess my collection is heavily influenced around jazz and funk sounds as I used to play the drums and trumpet back in the day – that’s where my love for music began. I feel so lucky to have such supportive parents both working within the music and arts world educating and inspiring me ever since I can remember, my most special records have been passed down from my Dad’s fairly expansive collection. Check out this new mix of mine I think it best demonstrates my musical taste and current mood at the moment – hope you like it!

 

What have been the latest additions to your collection, and what would you say about them?

David Holland Quartet – Conference of the birds

This is just one beautiful album.

 

Frankie Redmond – Fighting to keep my head above water

I love the guitar sound on this track, it really gives it a tripped out feel:

 

Are there records you’re looking forwards in particular to playing at SE Discotheque?

I’m so excited to play everything and feel so lucky to have been selected as a Saturday night resident. It’s hard to say which track I’m most looking forward to playing, but I’m really exited to push the floor to new extremes and share the music. At the moment I love hearing this one out loud, it is a real dance floor builder:

 

On that note, are there other residents you’re looking forwards to playing together with?

I can’t wait to get in the booth with everyone, it’s going to be so much fun. Every resident plays very different music so there will be something for everyone, so please come and dance with us!
