Biography

If dance music is too often accused of being a slave to the DJ-cum-producer, banging out formulaic “meat and two veg” electronic standards, then Harry Peat may be the man to save the day. Classically trained, Harry has become known for his skilfully orchestrated arrangements, intensely textured sounds, and pristine production skills. Mixing dark beats, with innovative sound design and rich harmonies, Harry Peat has a level of depth and musicality not often seen in the dance world.

Harry’s musical journey started with his first piano lesson at the age of 7. Five inspired years later and with a notebook brimming with his own musical etchings he came into contact with his very first synthesiser. Armed with a medium that could do justice to his musical imaginings he spent his teens weaned on a diet of 80’s pop, Vangelis and Jean Michelle Jarre. At 18, with the rumblings of a nascent dance movement in the London clubs around him, Harry enrolled to study Commercial Music at the Royal Academy of Music.

It was while at music college that he landed his first single release on Test Pressing Records under his pseudonym “HP Source”. Entitled “Pressure”, it got plays on Brandon Block and Alex P’s Kiss FM drivetime show, and Harry’s step onto the first rung of the ladder was secured. He was soon taken on by Red Parrot and released two singles through their label, the first a double-A side featuring “Slide” and “Jupiter Rising”, and a second one “Fligthpath”, with support from Sasha, Paul van Dyk and Ashley Casselle to name but a few.
