About XANDER HARRIS
Harris is an electronic artist providing a growing balance between tense atmospherics, italo camp and psychedelic flair. His exploration of Giallo sounds landed his well-received debut “Urban Gothic” on Fact Magazine’s Best 50 LPs of 2011 list. The last year has found the native Texan equipped with a diverse discography and live performances that have taken him across the world.
Out of the rich and thriving electronic community of Austin, TX, Flatliner has at last surfaced from the shadows of obscurity with the duo’s debut EP Black Medicine. Inspired by the entrenched ethos of live-hardware sequencing cultivated within the local electronic establishment, Flatliner fully embraces and embellishes the marriage of modern gear with vintage tones. Jesse Strait and Adam Fangsrud have expertly honed their dance-based sonic dystopia using a formidable collection of high-end studio equipment and hoards of rare synthesizers. As a result, Flatliner’s debut is a testament to Strait and Fangsrud’s uncompromising production standards, transforming volumes of expansive studio experimentation into an ominous yet seductive euphoria.
