Adultnapper is a shadowy figure drawn from the dark reaches of Francis Harris’ imagination. Born in Las Vegas, raised on punk rock, and schooled in philosophy, Harris went from ‘hating dance music’, to establishing himself as a DJ/Producer with a unique sound and a global audience. His often introspective productions defy convention; relying instead on a sophisticated, song-based approach, marked by elaborate swung micro-rhythms, thick musical baselines, complex arrangements and haunting tonal melodies. As a DJ, primarily mixing records, Harris employs precision skills and thoughtful programming to expand upon Adultnapper¹s sonic territory.
His trademark emotion-laden excursions have earned him turns at the world¹s most discerning underground events. In 2007, Harris launched Ransom Note, a concept label which, through music, text and imagery, tells the story of the Adultnapper character, an anti-hero who is part creative genius gone awry, part tortured dystopic philospher, part paranoid vigilante outlaw and part Harris himself.
