by Jorge Velez
Released: Jan 2013
Label: Rush Hour
Long before he became Professor Genius, Jorge Velez toiled away in his New York apartment on a modest setup of analog synthesizers and drum machines, making, well, left-field techno, retro-futurist house and discombobulated dance music that's much of a piece with Professor Genius' sui generis sound. What blows the mind is that these tracks were made between 1996 and 1999. Sounding little like anything from the U.S. then, they constitute a missing link between '80s Detroit and the next century's Mars colony, lo-fi but wide-eyed. Our trip to the stars will be fueled by basement genius.
