Episode 98: Aaron Harbour Tribute

Episode 98 is a tribute to Aaron Harbour.  He is the host of “Timber” on KGPC Radio , and directs Et al. Gallery with his wife Jackie, and Kevin Krueger.  He curated a monthly, “Knitworks” from 2009 - 2011 at the beloved Tenderloin bar Koko Cocktails (R.I.P) [The owners of Koko Cocktails would go on to open Hi-Lo Club] where myself and many other Bay Area electronic musicians tried out new compositions in an intimate and inviting setting.

"Harbour keeps his cuts appealingly brooding, too. He claims Jim O'Rourke, Alan Lomax, Harry Smith, Autechre, and "Dicky James" (aka Aphex Twin) as influences, and he isn't bluffing. Weird folk elements creep into Harbour's sublimin-ill funk foundations, lending his cuts a stark eeriness reminiscent of Sixtoo and cLOUDDEAD's most eldritch creations. I didn't know Harbour till I noticed Stop Biting had booked him, but I now rank him among the highest echelon of American underground-hiphop producers."

-Dave Segal of Seattle's The Stranger (July 15th, 2010)

Aaron is incredibly important to Opal Heights host Denley's growth as a musician, and undoubtedly many others. He continues to intrepidly support the arts in the Bay Area.
