his real name? Is he from Europe? People sometimes get a little
confused about Harrison Crump, so lets set the record straight.
is his real name and no, hes not from Europe, hes
Chicago born and bred and still lives there. Harrison is that
rarest commodity in dance music - a producer, remixer, singer
and songwriter who can perform all four disciplines with style.
His songwriting abilities have led to a close musical relationship
with long-time Chicago friend Felix da Housecat, working on
both Felixs Maddcat Courtship project and his latest
album Kittens & Thee Glitz.
hes actually been producing since the early nineties,
with a long list of productions to his credit on labels like
Hubba Hubba, Groove On, Power Music, Radikal Fear, Nepenta
and Special Needs, its only in the last couple of years
that all his work has finally started to pay off with the
higher profile releases on Subliminal, Get Boogie, Feelings,
Adore and Stomp Your Feet. Another cut The Talk, originally
released on a limited quantity sampler pack by Deluxe Audio
in 2001, was included by Fatboy Slim on his first Big Beach
compilation, and was recently re-released on Phats & Smalls
new label Mutant Disc with new mixes from P&S themselves.
first production for up and coming UK label essence was Runaway,
a track that combines Harrisons knack of writing incredible
hooks with his growing ability for blending his own style
from the musical elements of old school house and garage and
the newer, tougher flavours of tech house. His second, Searchin,
features Chicago neighbour Dajae on vocals. A classy song
that competes with the best of them, the mixes by German production
outfit CR Project have brought plaudits from such luminaries
as Brian Tappert, Miguel Migs, DJ Disciple and DJ Pierre.
Harrison is at work on an album for Subliminal Records, and
has been invited to submit several track to Puff Daddy for
his forthcoming dance project. His new label Bird Ice Records
is set to be launched via essence records this summer.
