HARRI (SUB CLUB/UNDER THE SHADE – GLASGOW)
James ‘Harri’ Harrigan is synonymous with Glasgow’s vibrant House scene. His record-breaking (and ongoing) 20 year residency at the Sub Club was the foundation for it’s growth into one of the UK’s premier dance music venues (in the past couple of years it has been voted Resident Advisor’s #10 and DJ Magazine’s #14 in their respective ‘World’s Top Clubs’ polls).
In the early 90s Harri teamed up with Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle of Slam and Soma, and for 4 years they spun their sonic magic at the Sub Club on Saturdays. However, the departure of Slam from the Sub saw Harri join forces with one of Glasgow’s most talented DJs, Domenic Cappello (20/20 Vision/Soma) and together they created Subculture, the club’s flagship Saturday night. 14 years on Subculture with Harri and Domenic at the helm is possibly the longest running weekly House night in the UK (if not anywhere), having hosted the cream of international DJs and artists and with a formidable reputation as one of the best and most credible House parties in the world.
Creating and recording music under aliases including the Daddy’s Favourite, the Papa Washington Trio and H Foundation, as well as under his own name, Harri has showcased his extraordinary mixing and production skills. Daddy’s Favourite’s ‘I Feel Good Things For You’ propelled Harri into the charts and is now a standard on many House compilations. H Foundation’s ‘Liaka’ and the Papa Washington Trio’s ‘Calling All Dancers’ also found considerable favour with DJs and music lovers, while his own Tax Discs label has scored many hype chart hits over the years.
Harri’s 5 year London residency with Kenny Hawkes at Plastic People was regarded as one of the best House nights of the 90s and outside of the UK Harri regularly travels to Europe, the USA, Asia and beyond, where his take on and knowledge of electronic music has gained wide acclaim. In DJ Magazine Harri was voted one of the world’s top 100 DJs for 2 years running and The Face (R.I.P.) and many other leading style and music magazines have lauded Harri’s unique contribution to the UK House scene.
Harri continues be in great demand on the DJing front but is still managing to find time to work on new material with his good friend Graeme Clark (AKA Future Disco ringleader The Revenge) as part of their Harri & The Revenge and Burnt Island Casuals projects. The pair have already released or remixed for labels including Instruments Of Rapture, Jisco, Under The Shade, Home Taping Is Killing Music and Five20East.
