Adultnapper is the
shadowy alter ego of Brooklyn-based DJ/producer Francis Harris, a
philosophy PhD drop‐out, former political activist/hardcore punk
rocker, and one of the darker iconoclastic figures of contemporary
techno. For a man who once admitted to having originally hated dance
music, Harris has emerged in the late 2000s as one of the most daring
and compelling producers of the international dance scene.
Adultnapper's sound defies the conventions of
EDM through challenging and sophisticated songcraft marked by complex
arrangements, haunting melodies and deep moody atmospheres. In 2007 he
established the Ransom Note imprint as a highly conceptual artistic
platform, launching a series of releases with artwork following a sort
of dystopic graphic novel narrative that imbues the Adultnapper persona
with an even darker mystique.
He has also released on some of the top
underground labels, including Audiomatique, Superfreq, Dirt Crew, and
Nummer, garnering praise from even the great mainstream DJ tastemakers
of the world, i.e. Danny Tenaglia, Sasha, and Laurent Garnier. Equally
