Do Not Sit has never been about one sound, and as we always look to discover the bright stars of the future, we never forget the heroes of the past. We are thrilled to welcome to the label one of those heroes and a very dear friend, Gavin Hardkiss. 

Gavin was one of the bedrocks of the original San Francisco scene, and he was one of the main forces who helped shape the community. Hardkiss is an American dance music legend who has pioneered the scene since the 90s. He has played across the world, recorded numerous albums and singles as Hawke and with Hardkiss. We have so much respect for what him and the family of Hardkiss Brothers did to shine light on the West Coast sound around the world.

“Perc Groove EP” is a collection of three original tracks from Gavin, each filled with his decade’s long palate of sound and rhythm. From the title track’s deep, underground warehouse vibes, to “Debonnaire”, the familiar cosmic breaks he championed for generations, and the modern, organic and emotional composition of “Budboi”.

We are honored to have Gavin officially join the Do Not Sit Family, even though we always considered him a part already.
