To celebrate the holidays, Darkside's Dave Harrington is kicking off a 12 Days of Remixes series, which includes remixes and edits of Beyoncé, Nils Frahm, Tyondai Braxton, Empress Of, Steve Reich, and more. He says, "I'll be sharing all of the un-released remixes and edits I've made and have been playing in my DJ sets over the last couple years." The first is out today and it's Dave's take on Michael Jackson's "Human Nature." Listen below.

The series leads up to December 13, the day Dave Harrington & friends do their second annual Holiday Spectacular at Le Poisson Rouge. The show will have a house band backing Antlers frontman Peter Silberman, Yeasayer co-frontman Anand Wilder, A Place to Bury Strangers frontman Oliver Ackerman, Bear In Heaven frontman Jon Philipot, Tokyo Police Club frontman Dave Monks, Tanlines' Jesse Cohen & Eric Emm, Olga Bell, Sam Cohen, Holly Miranda, Tim Mislock (Hedwig & the Angry Inch, Antlers), Jen Goma (A Sunny Day In Glasgow, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart), Real Estate frontman Martin Courtney, and more vocalists singing their renditions of holiday songs. Tickets are available, and all proceeds will go to the Harlem School of The Arts.

Some of the house band members are also playing Nicolas Jaar's label Other People's residency at Trans-Pecos this month.
