Biography

Harris is a British producer of sample-based breakbeat and house music. Well known as both a remixer, music label owner and producer with a hit-making ability and an innovative style, Harris has enjoyed working with many well known and talented people in his 30 year career including Simon Cowell (American Idol), James Brown, Prince, Joyce Sims, Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim), Paul Oakenfold, Tony! Toni! Toné!, War, Arthur Baker, Boyz II Men, Heatwave and many more including several number one hits (Steve “Silk” Hurley, Prince, Bass) licensed and released in over 70 countries. Originally a DJ, Harris started selling professional audio equipment in London’s Tottenham Court Road, then became a club promoter. In 1983 Harris was invited to become one of the original remixers for Tony Prince’s DMC (now the world’s largest DJ association). Harris then joined forces with BBC Radio 1 DJ Froggy and was commissioned for many hit remixes for major labels including Polydor (James Brown, Roy Ayers), Chrysalis (Doug E. Fresh), A&M (Jeffrey Osborne), EMI, BMG, Columbia, Island, London and eventually PRT for The Real Thing’s ‘You to me are everything’ remix (UK number three pop hit). In 1986 Harris and Froggy started their own independent label ‘Music of Life’ with Chris France. The label was initially distributed by Morgan Khan’s ‘Streetwave’ group and the first releases were from Cerrone (Supernature) and Michael Jackson’s sister La Toya.
