With years of DJing at the world’s top clubs and over fifty electronic dance music releases as Adultnapper, Sycophant Slags and lightbluemover to his credit, one might think Francis Harris had reached the pinnacle of his career, or at least firmly established his niche.
But 2012 marked a pivotal year for the Brooklyn-based producer in which his true potential as a composer, producer and label head was revealed. It was then that Harris dropped his Adultnapper alias, stepping to the fore under his given name with his first full length, Leland, an opus conceived as a requiem to his father.
Now Francis has announced the second LP under his real name with Minutes of Sleep set for release February 24 2014 on Scissor and Thread, the label he founded in 2012. The first single You Can Always Leave was released recently and now has a video to accompany it.
The video for You Can Always Leave was given a gorgeous 8mm video treatment, with the crackling tactile elements of film adding depth to the chilly track. Noisey premiered the Kenneth James Gibson-directed video last week.
