Description

Composing an entire electronic album around the notorious 15th Century Cult Of Assassins, New Jersey based producer Jorge Velez (Italians Do It Better, Thisnotanexit), better known as Professor Genius, has created a unique and ambitious piece of work, under the guise of Hassan, which strongly stands apart from his previous efforts. Check!Largely based around layered atmospheric Arabic-styled synth work and sparse percussion throughout, Hassan employs an entirely electronic palette to bring listeners into a secret world filled with darkness, drama, triumph and chaotic dissonance. Bridging the gap of Velez's atmospheric originals on the second disc come remixes from Steve Moore (Zombi) who contributes a massive 9 plus minute epic re-working of Time of the Assassins, Marcos Cabral (of Runaway's) dancefloor treatment of Merciful and Blessed as well as Steve Summers slo-motion, plodding nu-beat inspired interpretation of The Valleys of Paradise.
