Our latest “Five Minutes With” profile catches up with local Toronto electronic music producer and Juno nominated artist Harrison.
# of Albums: 3, and a few Mixtapes
Latest Release: Checkpoint Titanium
Latest Video: Celica Supra
Harrison is happening. In a few short years, the prodigious Toronto producer has gone from teenage bedroom beatmaker showcasing his homemade, sample-savvy wares on Soundcloud to hotly tipped studio savant positioned at the frontlines of the city’s R&B renaissance.
His aesthetic has proven malleable enough to make him feel right at home on bills alongside everyone from hip-hop reconstructionists Cashmere Cat and Ryan Hemsworth to synth-funk technician Com Truise to digi-pop maximalist Wave Racer to avant-garde innovator Jon Hopkins to indie upstarts Purity Ring. Regarded as one of the brightest young musicians coming out of Toronto, Harrison means to live up to the hype with his sophomore album due for release in late 2018.
