Brooklyn-based DJ and producer, Saint Velez has emerged out of the notoriously industrial New York scene, cutting his teeth in warehouses from Bushwick to Bedstuy. Having released a slew of singles and EPs in 2021, including his charting number, ‘Load of My Mind’ via Back In Black Recordings, and ‘Cigarette Cuts’ via T78’s Autektone Dark, the rising talent looks to reenter the release radar with his debut full-length LP, Warehouse Poetry via De-Konstrukt Records.
This work demonstrates the particular way in which the producer understands sound, located at the opposite end of the commercial, the generic, what works: what he does is, on the contrary, a kind of unstable magma of pulsations and glows, with traces melodic. and blurred textures, pursuing a serene, spiritual, almost ascetic expression. All those languages and influences from which he was nurtured dialogue in this EP, creating new, different and highly evolved sound organisms.
In the end, SAINT VELEZ ends up creating an EP where there is a very careful balance between the ambition of his intentions and the greatness of his results, managing to go further, not an easy task. But the level is up there, and this producer can be proud of having initialed and reaffirmed his entry into the history of electronic music.
