Originally released in 2005. Chelonis R. Jones was born in New York, but has lived in Europe for the past decade, making his mark as a songwriter, painter and poet. This is his first debut full-length for the Get Physical label. On Dislocated Genius, Jones explores the field of dark, provocative dance music. Highlights include "Blackface," which explores the myth of the womanizing stud cliché of Rn'B and disco music with deep sub bass and twisted FX that growl ever stronger under Jones' riling words and audience applause. The strange and infectious "Middle Finger Music" comes on strong with psychotic noise before pulling back to a controlled beat bristling with glitches and evolving into a strong rumbling bassline and uplifting melody. Within the tuneful 4/4 of "Vultures" are understated beats, sweeping FX and undulating melodies. Stand-out track "Mythologies" is ripe with textured soundscapes, forceful beats and unfussy production. "Deer In The Headlights" is arresting from the opening chords -- deep sub-bass and synth mash with grumbling soundbeds, sci-fi clicks and spacey synths, which underpin Chelonis' haunting vocals. Hugely driven to create, his unique sound and powerful voice is unmistakeable in a rapidly homogenized world.
