The man also known as Professor Genius will play several dates in March and April.
Real name Jorge Velez, the Jersey City-based producer has a long production history that takes in Italo, rough analogue house and more experimental fare. Following early singles through Italians Do It Better and Thisisnotanexit as Professor Genius, 2012 proved to be a breakthrough year of sorts, with the long-delayed Hassan LP for L.I.E.S. followed by the quick-fire MMT Tape Series, which were quickly reissued by Rush Hour after the original 12-inches sold out. Velez's European tour kicks off at Le Bourg in Lausanne on March 29th, and wraps up on April 29th in German city Konstanz. Along the way he'll play at Berlin's Loftus Hall, the Old Blue Last in London, Milan, Geneva, Paris, Düsseldorf, and The Hague with Crème Organization chief DJ TLR.
