Brooklyn producer Francis Harris is a philosophy PhD drop-out and former political activist/hardcore punk rocker who confessed to having originally hated dance music. At one point or another, he had a major change of heart and his shadowy electronic alter ego Adultnapper has emerged as one of the most acclaimed international techno figures of the new decade.
His sound is dark, marked by complex arrangements, haunting melodies, and deep moody atmospheres. Equally revered for his DJ precision as his studio craft, Adultnapper's live sets are deep, pulsating emotional journeys that expand the mind just as much as they jack the body.
In 2007, he established the Ransom Note imprint as a highly conceptual artistic platform, launching a series of releases with original artwork that follows a dystopic graphic novel narrative. It imbues Harris's persona with an even darker mystique.
