Gensu Dean – Algorhythms

Producer Gensu Dean has been quiet for a minute after his collaborative album with Planet Asia (Abrasions) and then his production work for 7evenThirty (The Problem). As summer starts he wanted to let his fans know where he’s been musically by offering up an all new instrumental album for free. The 25 track record is meant to be a warm up to the new material Dean has coming late in 2015 and early in 2016.

For those new to Gensu Dean, the analog producer has worked with some of the industry’s greats including Large Professor, David Banner, Planet Asia, Brand Nubian and more. He gets the nod of approval on “Algorhythms” introduction from legendary Diamond D (of D.I.T.C.), DJ Joc Max, and DJ Spinna.

Gensu Dean – The Art of Digging [Video]

The Grand Imperial, Gensu Dean, SP1200 producer, analog equipment junkie, and Mello Music producer, recently took a moment out of his NYC travels to talk about “The Art of Digging.” A pure vinyl head, who abides by the Jedi code, Dean still covers labels, doesn’t do e-digging, and explains why in this short video clip. It’s this ethos, combined with hard knock production, that has garnered Gensu production credits and friendships with Large Professor, David Banner, Brand Nubian, Planet Asia, and even a co-sign from the King, DMC of Run DMC. Most recently Gensu Dean produced the entire album for Mississippi emcee 7evenThirty on a record titled “The Problem.”
