Biography

Adultnapper is a shadowy figure drawn from the dark reaches of Francis Harris’ imagination. Harris, a philosphy phD drop-out with punk rocker roots, hails from suburban Las Vegas but has called Brooklyn home for the past 9 years — a stretch in which he has gone from “hating dance music”, to establishing himself as an underground DJ/Producer with a unique sound and a global audience.

In 2004, having achieved success as a DJ, Label Owner and Event Producer, Harris turned to the studio, intent on exploring new sonic territory, and adopting the Adultnapper moniker to represent his efforts. What emerged was a reaction against the skippy rhythms and repetetive loops that had dominated the music landscape. Instead, Harris took a sophisticated, song-based approach, characterized by elaborate swung micro-rhythms, thick musical baselines, complex arrangements, haunting tonal melodies and brooding introspective atmospheres - and tastemakers took note. A steady stream of Adultnapper tracks have since appeared on some of the world‘s most esteemed labels - Steve Bug’s Audiomatique, Frank Lorber‘s Nummer, Mr. C’s Superfreq, Mule Electronic, Dirt Crew, etc. - and have been hotly tipped by elite DJs - Loco Dice, Danny Tenaglia, Craig Richards, Sven Väth, Laurent Garnier, Sasha, Monika Kruse, Steve Lawler, Danny Howells, etc. - thus firmly establishing Harris as one rare purveyor who steadfastly challenges the conventional wisdom and accepted shortcuts of post modern electronic music.
