Album info

Harlan is a longtime music underground networker, who's put out a trove of tapes, each of which is all over the place, musically -- totally bursting with a bombastic living energy. Cracking drums split yer head wide open while lo-fi gweetar tuned down to 'H' crunches up yer skullbonez, and wack-ass samples laugh at what's left of you. Harlan the musical artist was spawned in 1994. His forté is percussion, which he began to play at age 9. Throughout his school years he played drums in concert, symphonic and marching bands. Harlan was first inspired to play drums from hearing rap music in the early 80's, starting off doing human-beatbox and knuckle beats on desktops at school. Harlan started playing clubs at age 13 in a metal band called Seraphim. As time went by, he played in a multitude of bands with differing styles ranging from jazz to hip-hop to punk to heavy metal to experimental drumming ensembles.
