JUSTIN HARRIS

From new solo releases on I'm A House Gangster, new Freaks releases on Circus Recordings and a forthcoming Freaks release on Eats Everything's Edible Records to Closing the Seal Pit at The Zoo Project - Ibiza, residencies at Pikes and Cafe Del Mar and closing Ibiza Rocks at Pikes Hotel Ibiza with the legendary Matthew Bushwacka … It's been an amazing and busy past few years for Justin Harris. And it's far from over yet..

Justin Harris' career started out in the early days of House Music beginning in warehouses, fields and occasionally clubs of the UK in the late 80's. Alongside such luminaries as DIY Sound System, Mr. C, Eddie Richards, Colin Dale, Nigel Casey (House of 909) and a host of other legendary DJ's and sound systems.

Justin played a substantial part in shaping the scene into the global force it is now.. At around 1995, Harris moved to London from Bournemouth to expand his horizons. At a dark and deep Warehouse party in East London he literally tripped over Luke Solomon and after a garbled conversation the possibility of Freaks was born. Studio's were booked! This was to be the start of a 20 year partnership, so far leading to the creation of four albums and well over 100 EP's including remixes for artists such as Matthew Herbert, Derrick Carter, Greenskeepers, Markus Nikolai, Tiefschwarz, Matt Tolfrey, Dave Aju, Gene Farris & Sonny Fodera, Soft Cell, Damon Albarn & the list goes on …They've also had releases on esteemed labels Hot Creations, Visionquest, Circus Recordings, Crosstown Rebels, Leftroom, Playhouse, Perlon, Silver Network and Rebirth amongst others. Over the years their works have been hailed as creative landmarks in house music and electronic music production, bending people's perceptions and pushing the boundaries. Freaks last album 'Psych' on Rebirth Records was a culmination of eight years work which had amazing reviews and made DJ Mag's Album of the month. In 2016 they released an EP of lost works on the wonderful Circus Company called Stuff We Forgot to critical acclaim. Next out from Freaks is a brand new EP on the unstoppable Eat's Everything's label Edible with a remix from Josh Wink.

Probably most exciting of all is the fact that in late 2015, Music for Freaks was re-launched. It was a long time ago that them Freaks, Luke Solomon & Justin Harris built a bridge with Chicago and created an island that absorbed a community of fellow house music misfits. Fast forward to now and spearheaded by Justin Harris, the label's releases and remixes have come from the likes of Bertha (Diz Washington), Villalobos, Demuir, Dan Ghenacia, Chris Carrier, Dave Aju, Mr. Tophat, Argy, Honey Dijon, Tuff City Kids, Jozif, SoulPhiction, Lil Mark & Mikey V, Wyatt Agard & Nick Maurer, thatmanmonkz & Soul Clap. In 2018, Music For Freaks continues to build it's community of house loving freaksters.

Justin has also forged a successful solo career releasing numerous EP's for labels such as Apollo Records, I'm A House Gangster, O'black Records, Classic Recordings, Viva, Natural Rhythm Something Different, Paper Recordings, Pack Up And Dance, Eclectic Avenue Records (EAR) and Sculpture Records. He's also remixed for a string of labels including Djebali, Natural Rhythm, Secret Life, Vizual, Myna Music, Homecoming, Something Different, Bulletdodge, Seamless, Punks, Sculpture, Don't Be Afraid and DotBleep Recordings. Most recently he's released a new EP on Apollo Records, remixes of Robert Owens and Dirty Sole and released a second EP for I'm A House Gangster.

Now living on the white island of Ibiza, Justin runs MFF from the island, playing gigs at Zoo Project, Cafe Del Mar (Music For Freaks residency), Space, Pacha and a residency at the helm of the legendary Music For Freaks parties, which have been lifting the roof off of Pikes Ibiza for 3 years. The residency started in May 2016 with DJ's guests through the summer including Dan Ghenacia, Dave Aju, Lord Leopa
