"Adultnapper" is a shadowy figure drawn from the dark reaches of Francis Harris' imagination. Harris, a philosophy Ph.D. drop‐out with punk rocker roots, hails from suburban Las Vegas but has called Brooklyn home for the past 9 years - a stretch in which he has gone from "hating dance music," to establishing himself as an underground DJ/Producer with a unique sound and a global audience. Relying primarily on the ancient art of mixing two records, Harris' precision skills and thoughtful programming have earned him a reputation as DJ equal to his regard as producer - an uncommon distinction. On the decks, Harris intricately weaves divergent strains into a thick, pumping groove that subtly rises and falls, drawing the crowd ever deeper within his emotion-laden, melodic journey.

Grum's rise to musical prominence went like this: not long after he produced his first track, The Hype Machine calculated he was the second most blogged act in the world (behind Radiohead). Grum grew up amidst Scotland's fascination for techno and trance, and also became massively influenced by Daft Punk, The Human League and Stuart Price. The result is what he calls "a real mash-up of French house, Italo-disco, new-wave, and soft rock." Features on leading electronic music blogs like Discodust earned him remixes for Late of the Pier, Anorak, and Tronik Youth. His blissful, bass-heavy first single "Runaway" was picked up by Aeroplane for their Mixmag covermount CD and featured on the play-lists of Pete Tong, Zane Lowe and Annie Mac. His second single, the infectious and driving "Sound Reaction," is "a mixture of rave and electro with a hint of disco." Perfect for Electric Zoo!

What started back in the mid-nineties as an experiment fusing youth culture and social action has turned into a multi-faceted, multi-faced creature called Bassnectar. It is the brainchild of Lorin Ashton, and it exists as an open-sourced musical project that is as diverse as it is heavy, as raw as it is meticulous, and as fierce as it is imaginary. Bassnectar combines sound and force with weight while spanning the spectrum of sonic style, covering every genre imaginable, and smashing it all into a collision of intense, wobbling basslines, hypnotic soundscapes, and pretty much anything that strikes his fancy. He calls the end product "omnitempo maximalism," which basically means no rules, no limitations, and no hesitation in fusing the familiar with the strange or the classic with the cutting edge. It's only natural that he's one of our headliners at Electric Zoo 2010!
