Anthony Hart, aka DJ HartBreaks, technically unleashed his first mixtape – The Long Goodbye – earlier this year, but he’s throwing a proper release party on Tuesday from 7-9 p.m. at downtown gallery Phoenicia Association (821 N. Third St., Phoenix).
I have a ton of respect for people who work to make Phoenix a more inviting cultural/musical destination and Anthony is one of those guys. He’s a resident at the weekly Downtime night at The Lost Leaf and helps curate Civic Space Jam, a free monthly event (every third Sunday) at downtown’s Civic Space Park.
Couple that with an impeccable taste in music – I’ve seen Anthony at everything from the Wilco/Grizzly Bear show in Tucson to Gift of Gab in Tempe (among others) – and you have yourself a well-rounded DJ who has released a mix that he – and Phoenix – can be proud of.
As the title suggests, The Long Goodbye is a personal statement, “a love letter or ode, whatever you want to call it,” Anthony says. He also told me earlier in the year, when the mix first came out: “This is also a representation or document of a lot of my favorite songs of last year. Several of the songs on the mix were staples in my DJ sets that I just happened to have a really personal connection to, be it the content, or mood/theme.”
