In a northern Brooklyn apartment, filled with framed puzzles of space animals, neo-abstract art, and charts of the world's most dangerous sharks, resides the digital-glitch-guru Dead Geoff. The twenty three year old New York native has been crafting beats infused with hacked sound waves and ambient recordings when not producing for his independent net label, Purple Bird Music (www.purplebirdmusic.com). Well versed in all sounds electronic, Dead Geoff has made a name for himself as a beat smith and musical tailor to hip-hop artists (Natural Ingredients, misterthumbs). He has also had success as the producer of indie folktronic and galaxy-hop artists (Chi' Akai, Rioux, Ceci G). Dead Geoff started the new year off by beginning production for his upcoming solo album, A Lobster Named Continuum.
While putting together The Opposables in 2009, with left field hip-hop collaborator, misterthumbs, Dead Geoff wrote the IDM / Ambient track "LightCycles." As filtered sine waves float above stuttering high hats, the melancholy vocals of Ceci G describe the travels of a grizzled, young vagabond, a man who wakes up to the sun in a new place every day. WHITE MAGICK lends the track a wall of reverberant voices as Dead Geoff lays down bass lines and programs intricate patterns of kicks and snares.
