The first book to detail exactly what DJing is like for the 99% of DJs who never make it big. Covering electro, hip hop, rare groove, acid house, rave and the UK underground club scene, it’s a 30-odd year tale of a life lived in dance music.
‘Long Relationships’ is full of tales of clubs, raves, warehouses, DJing, music, record production, record deals, low-level international travel, shady promoters, dodgy club security, magical dance floor moments and much more.
Written by former DJ/producer Harold Heath, ‘Long Relationships: My Incredible Journey From Unknown DJ to Small-time DJ’ is a biographical account of a DJ career defined by a deep love of music and a shallow amount of success.
‘Long Relationships’ is a love letter to DJing and to every small-town DJ who never made it to the big time but whose life was enriched and improved by DJing anyway. It’s packed with tales of gigs, clubs, raves, warehouses, music, record production and record deals, low-rent international travel, shady promoters, dodgy club security, magical dance floor moments and much more.
If you ever DJed, if you ever lost yourself on a dance floor, or if you ever simply fell in love with the potential contained within a dark basement, a strobe and a sound system, then this story is your story.
"Like with footballers, there are a plethora of lower-tier DJs who are just as gifted as their superstar compatriots, but for one reason or another don’t make it beyond the Vauxhall Conference league. Harold Heath is one of them. Full of highs and lows, his journey as a DJ who didn’t quite ‘make it’ is a compelling tale." - Carl Loben, DJ Mag Editor in Chief
“Excellent, well-written book which looks at the scene from a perspective we don’t usually get. Filled with great stories and anecdotes that had me hooked from beginning to end. A recommended read both for newbies and old veterans alike.” - DJ Colin Dale
