In middle school he started recording music with whatever was lying around the house. Thankfully his father played music in the 70′s and 80′s so he had some stuff to full around with. He started out doing the whole punk thing, which is definitely still in his life, but boring as hell to play anymore. He eventually started getting into “stranger” groups. Throbbing gristle is what really did it. After listening to there records, he started getting into synths and drum machines. HE WILL NEVER GO BACK to anything else.

Xander Harris

Xander Harris began in the far reaches of 2009. A child left behind on the set of “Prince of Darkness”, Xander crawled from the backlot wreckage with a sequencer in one hand and a synth in the other ready to take over the dark dance floor. He trekked across the barren landscape of the southwest and decided to place his stasis machine in the warm goo-goo muck of Austin, TX. There, Xander learned of the powers of Chris Carter, Roland, Alesis, Korg, and on the 8th and 1/4 day, he called it good.

We have the pleasure to announce The Scrap Mag’s new project: our first Compilation. The reason why we decided to create it, is on the first place, to give support to the underground music scene. The Scrap Mag’s goal is not only to remain faithful to its philosophy of sharing its musical discoveries, but also to offer our music selection in two different formats: digital and physical. Moreover, especially in Barcelona and Spain, we would like to promote this musical scene, giving all these bands the opportunity to come to the city and share their music with us.

All the profits that The Scrap Mag will obtain from Bandcamp will be entirely for the artist. On the other hand, the profits that The Scrap Mag will receive from this first compilation, will be invested on the creation of future compilations. Just a tip, a part from the CD edition, in order to pay tribute to our vinyl collector’s passion, we will be creating future editions in this format.

You can get this first compilation in Bandcamp, Lostracks Records (Barcelona) or via email: tothescrapmag@gmail.com If you want to order more than one copy via Bandcamp, please send us an email before buying.

We would like to give special thanks to all the artists that made this project come true. Also we want to underline the magnificent collaboration of Repli CD for its excellent CD production, to DDF Studio for the master edition, to Boyan Lazarov for his help, to Pablo Benito for the amazing artwork and to Lara Viñas for her PR and communication support to the  magazine since it came out. And last but not least, to Toni Baidez for his job becoming a part of the  new bands headhunter along with us.
