Jel

Real Name:
Jeffrey Logan
Profile:
While most hiphop kids fused puberty with rap, jel spent years 14 and 15 fueling tanks at a Chicago gas station, saving pennies for his trusty and still ticking SP1200 sampler. The drum machine's premier musician, jel's distinct few-bit sound and rhythmic sensibility render him coveted by vocalists far and wide. His frequent Chicago to Cincinnati sojourns to collaborate with doseone took a final turn when they removed themselves to California. This drum-thumbed producer's programmed textures unravel the genome of an anticon sound, if there ever was one.
