This is the second full-length release from Chelonis R. Jones. The American artist left his home of New York for the shores of Europe in order to pursue a blossoming career in the world of arts. Working as a songwriter and playing vocalist in more than 20 rock/pop groups and pulling a handful of small art shows for his paintings were hardly usual. Struggles were many, penury, usual and homelessness -- obvious. Then in 2001, he was introduced and signed to Get Physical Music. His first 2002 12" release One & One, a collaboration with M.A.N.D.Y. and Booka Shade, started the ball rolling. 2003 followed with another 12" release, I Don't Know, which topped the Belgium Dance Charts twice and put the artist on the map, with thousands of broken hearts to respond and relate. Both singles became unforgettable house classics. 2005 saw the ignition of the self-produced, controversial, lo-fi masterpiece Dislocated Genius, and since 2008, he has worked with many giants of electronic music, from Röyksopp to Oliver Huntemann and from Corrugated Tunnel to Marc Romboy and many more. Chatterton is guaranteed to confound more minds than even Dislocated Genius. This is weird, compelling stuff: an unnerving mix of Chicago/Detroit house, R&B crooning, and pure, grinding, tension-filled German beat that rips your heart out. 2009 is Chatterton's year.
