I was contacted a few *cough* months ago by the rather wonderful NonCollective website and asked if I wanted to provide a guest mix for them. Naturally I immediately succumbed to the flattery and said yes; also naturally, it then took me a few *cough* months to actually get it finished. Still better late than […]

Right, this blog has been dormant for far too long, so to kick-start it back into life I’m going to re-post the Brazilian Beauties mixes I did while living in Brazil from 2005 to 2009. I knew next to nothing about Brazilian music when I arrived there, but after many a long afternoon digging in […]

Here’s another edit I did, mainly to extend a good tune into a great tune. Again, the credit must go to another DJ, this time the remarkable Maurice Fulton. I fully recommend scouring the web for his mixes, which always contain moments of genius. This Randy Crawford (of Street Life fame) tune was on one […]

Well, it’s been a while – been kinda busy moving back to Europe from Brazil. As a welcome back treat, here’s an edit I did of a pretty obscure disco 45, Bionic Lover by Gentle, which came out in 1977 on a small label called Leo Mini. To be fair, I can’t really take the […]

So naturally it wasn’t long before I was in possession of his “best of” entitled Get Augernized (ho ho). It turns out […]

However the real gem on here is: Marvin Gaye – A Funky Space Reincarnation (Alternate Extended Mix by John Morales & Paul Simpson)

Partly as an experiment to check upload options, and partly because it’s my latest mix: (watch out – it’s gentle) Eddie Harris – Space Commercial Herbie Hancock – Bubbles Jaki Whitren & John Cartwright – Inner Fire Letta Mbulu – Setho Lonnie Liston Smith – Quiet Moments Rita Lee – Caso Serio McNeal & Niles […]

Welcome aboard


Welcome to the occasional world of Harrison Fraud. If I ever get round to it you’ll find rare or little-known tunes available to download as well as the odd mix. To start it all off, here’s a track for which I’ve developed a highly detailed imaginary video. Picture the scene – the camera boards a luxury […]
