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. www.adultnapper.com www.myspace.com/adultnapper

Global DJ Broadcast: World Tour - London and A State Of Trance 463 (07-01-2010)
Global DJ Broadcast
Well folks another Thursday has reached us, which means it is Global DJ Broadcast day. However, this is not a traditional episode.
Tune in to the Global DJ Broadcast World Tour this month featuring resident mixologist Markus Schulz recorded live from his residency for The Gallery at Ministry of Sound in London.
Since May 2008, Markus Schulz has embarked on an incredible residential story, thanks to his association with The Gallery brand. Almost immediately following his debut performance at the world famous Ministry of Sound, he accepted he opportunity to become international resident, and has delivered a multitude of memories for everyone fortunate to attend these nights, including many from overseas.
As he marked the beginning of his third year as resident, and coinciding with his Do You Dream album tour, Markus began preparing for an enormous challenge - playing a Gallery night at Ministry of Sound from open to close, encapsulated in a 7 hour set.
We bring you the best moments of his incredible 7 hour set from June 18th, as the Global DJ Broadcast returns to the English capital of London, and for the first time, presents Markus Schulz as resident inside the walls of the Ministry of Sound to a worldwide listening audience.
