In the store | DJ HARRISON – HAZYMOODS
Vinyl expected in late July
DJ Harrison is Richmond VA-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Devonne Harris.
The son of a radio DJ who introduced him to the world of record
collecting, Harris grew up with music, progressing from violin, to high
school drum-line, to the Jazz Studies program at Virginia Commonwealth
University. He also continued working with other instruments and
developed an interest in sampling. His development as a producer – at
first, without a computer or sampler – came first learning to replay
samples on the drums, piano, bass or guitar.
DJ Harrison finds himself inspired by local musicians in the Richmond
scene that’s as diverse and nonexclusive as they come. Among rappers,
producers, punks and bluegrass bands, he falls within reach of an
expansive pool of musicians to collaborate with. He lives and works in
Jellowstone, a house turned recording compound occupied by his band
mates in Butcher Brown, a “garage punk jazz funk” group.
HazyMoods, DJ Harrison’s Stones Throw debut, was recorded there completely on tape, where the living room functions as a communal recording studio.
