A while back I did a mini-series about various producers/remixers. (I will list them below.)
This is an addition to that series and it’s also another look at a subject I’ve previously covered.
The producer is Damian Harris aka Midfield General and the subject is:
I believe that some of you might have heard about him. He played somewhere in N17.
He recently took a position with the Ajax backroom staff and has said that he wouldn’t turn down a coaching role with that struggling North London club if the opportunity ever arose.
I don’t need to write any more about him. Go here for the previous entry (including music).
I want to talk about the creator of the following tunes, which are entitled about the above subject.
Damian Harris moved down to Brighton and eventually became a DJ, then a few years later got a job at a record label who had one Norman Cook signed to them. After this he co-founded Skint Records and Cook joined under the Fatboy Slim moniker.
F&M Factoid:They were the Brighton & Hove Albion shirt sponsor for 9 years.
Under the Midfield General guise in 1997 he released the Devil In Sports Casual single.
One of the tracks on EP was named after the Dutch master:
|» Midfield General – Bergkamp|
– Also from the 2007 album General Disarray was the following track, which contains the euphoric Dutch TV commentator Jack van Gelder:
|» Midfield General – Dennis And My Sister|
(Also on that album was “Midfielding” – a collaboration with Noel Fielding of The Mighty Boosh)
Additionally… found this via YouTube which is a home made video tribute to Bergkamp:

If you like this sort of thing then I highly recommend you visit Acid Ted for more of the same.
