Biography

DJ, producer, label owner, and promoter, Harry McCanna has been establishing his own place within the scene for well over a decade. Since the beginning of his career, his musical palette has continually evolved, traversing a diverse range of sounds and styles, allowing him to cultivate a unique approach both in the booth and the studio.

DJing regularly in clubs since 2008, he initially started in his hometown in Essex and swiftly moved on to London. It was in the capital that Harry truly began to grow as a DJ and collector, drawing inspiration from the vibrant scene and contemporary talents surrounding him. By 2009, Harry had secured a regular slot at Lost Souls at Public Life in Shoreditch, leading onto gigs with WYS! at fabric, and in 2012, a residency with the newly-formed party Undersound. Motivated by the brand’s forward-thinking ethos and encouragement of experimentation, his residency with Undersound continued to push Harry further to refine his skills and selection behind the decks.

Since then, Harry has played extensively throughout the UK, Europe, and on numerous occasions in America, Russia, and Australia. Nevertheless, his home base will always be London, most notably at the city’s most iconic institution – fabric, where he has been a resident since 2021, sharing the stage with acts of the highest calibre and further enhancing his growth as an artist.

In 2017, NorthSouth Records was launched, a label formed on the dance floor by Harry and close friends Dale Mussington and Sam Bangura. Focused on showcasing the talents of their friends and peers, they have been releasing music and curating regular showcases at the Lion & Lamb in London since their inception, consistently expanding the sound they’ve become synonymous with.

In addition to DJing, Harry has been releasing music under his alias of Henry Hyde since 2014. With NorthSouth providing the perfect platform to define himself in the studio, he has gone on to release on labels such as Mindhelmet, Half Baked, Pleasure Club, and more. Mirroring the dynamism of his DJ sets, his production style is an ever-evolving canvas, influenced by the creative landscape around him.

Harry’s love and dedication for what he does are evident in both his Dj sets and productions alike. With a keen ability to connect with a full crowd or a solitary listener, Harry remains a driving force in both the DJ booth and the studio.
