The man that's collaborated with all the underground hip hop icons (KRS-ONE, Mac Lethal, Sage Francis, Rittz) is set to bring his unique 'post-punk laptop rap' sound to the clubs of NZ, this September.

Lars has featured in Rolling Stones, on CNN, MTV News, The New York post and more.

He is the self-proclaimed originator of "post-punk laptop rap". He was one of the first underground rappers to sample and reference post-punk and emo bands. John Mayer has credited Lars with coining the phrase "iGeneration", a term used to describe kids born from 1982-2000. He is the founder and CEO of the independent record label Horris Records.

He has recorded for Truck Records in the UK, Sidecho Records in the United States, Big Mouth Records in Japan, and Shock Records in Australia. He was formerly known as MC Lars Horris but changed his pseudonym to MC Lars in 2004 for purposes of simplicity. MC Lars currently resides in Venice Beach, California.

In 2006, he released the single "Download This Song" with it entering the Australian Singles Chart at number 29.
