Supergenius Records is a record label based on Koyote’s and Too Smooth Christ’s rich musical backgrounds. Their imprint explores various genres and takes many different directions, influenced by their obsession for Detroit and Chicago electronic music but also ’70s synth music, soul and blaxpoitation as well as ’90s ambient.
Imagine having Mr Fingers, Omar S, Curtis Mayfield, Aphex Twin and Ryuichi Sakamoto caught in a studio with only a karaoke machine. The releases reflect Koyote’s and TSC’s idiosyncratic approaches to production: on the outside looking in and creating a new sound, messing up with singular rhythm patterns and oblique time signatures, weird samples and eerie textures. What the releases will all have in common is a desire to surprise, a shared forward-thinking attitude and a positive inability to be pigeon-holed.
