UK based 23 year old Harrison is a man who’s very much in demand after storming the EDM and progressive house charts over the past year. After an initial breakthrough track with David Guetta, titled ‘Ain’t A Party’, collaboration singles have swiftly followed with the likes of Hardwell, Steve Aoki, Dannic, VINAI, Laidback Luke and more over the past eighteen months alone.
The secret to Harrison’s success and rapid rise is his uniqueness. How many artists can play not only a great DJ set, but also produce their own tracks, write their own songs AND perform the vocals live during their DJ set? As a DJ and vocalist, he’s been combining these skills to consistently explosive effect – there is only ONE Harrison and the world of electronic dance music is a more inspiring place now that he’s taking centre stage.
As a songwriter and vocalist Harrison has arrived as a breath of fresh air in the often formulaic dance scene. Original, often edgy lyrics together with a raw yet faultless recording voice are just part of Harrison’s obvious vocal talents. Take his ‘Sally’ collaboration with Hardwell as a prime example – a standout track with risqué lyrics paired with dominating main stage production that’s clocked up well over 12 million views combined on YouTube and which Harrison has wowed audiences with live everywhere from Dutch national TV to the I Am Hardwell show at massive Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. Equally impressive was the recent hit ‘The Wave’ with Vinai, a track which hit #1 on Beatport and went on to be a massive summer anthem, including the accolade of being THE most played track at Tomorrowland 2015.
Only until you witness Harrison live on stage will you appreciate the true power of his performances. He’s an energised, inspiring and natural front man who’s presence is perfect for the spotlight and the big stage. It’s no exaggeration to state that Harrison live is a true showstopping experience – as witnessed when the likes of Hardwell, Steve Aoki and Vinai have taken him on tour to perform live alongside them and to provide the highlight of the set.
As an artist on a seemingly unstoppable rise through the dance music scene, Harrison has been spreading his wings as a solo artist to take his unique DJ & Live performance to some of the biggest stages on the planet this past year. From legendary UK club brands Ministry Of Sound and Cream and festivals including SW4 and Xstatic In The Park, through to European shows including Privilege and Es Paradis in Ibiza, BCM in Majorca, Kingsize and Emporium Festivals in Holland, Magnetic Festival in Czech Republic, Papaya in Croatia and events in Germany, Malta, Italy and beyond over the summer season.
Long haul destinations have been equally impressive, such as a DJ Mag branded tour of China, World DJ Festival in South Korea, Ele and Riviera in Japan, Myst in Taiwan, Onyx in Thailand, Fuse in Myanmar, a tour of India, plus the H2O Festival in South Africa. Dance fans around the world over have been getting their first live experience of Harrison and are under his spell… and unsurprisingly they all want MORE!
Following hot on the heels of hits such as ‘The Wave’ with Vinai, ‘Mayday’ with Dannic & Lucky Date (both Beatport #1’s), ‘Sally’ with Hardwell and ‘Never Rave Again’ with Laidback Luke, 2016 saw releases on Spinnin’, Revealed and Armada, starting with Vinai & Harrison ‘Sit Down’, Harrison X Juicy M ‘LA Girls’ and Harrison & Kill The Buzz ‘Once Upon A Time’ all storming Beatport charts and radio and video playlists.
2017 sees Harrison launch a new sound that’s a fresh and future proof evolution of electronic dance music, plus a brand new label that will showcase his sounds alongside his recently launched Outlaw Radio show. Watch this space!
