Chelonis R. Jones Dislocated Genius
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Get Physical
A poet, painter and musician who‘s lived in Europe for a decade, New York expatriate Jones is a renaissance man, with Dislocated Genius his first electronic full-length. The album‘s best cuts have had previous lives: the deliciously neo-disco "One & One" and tech-house kiss-off "I Don‘t Know," which was released in 2003 and remixed by Justus Köhncke. (These songs so impressed Röyksopp, they tapped Jones‘ funky, Prince-inflected vocal style for The Understanding‘s "49%.") Dislocated is Jones‘ canvas, and through his portraits of racism and cliché ("Blackface") and his disillusionment with consumer culture ("NaNaNa"), he shows there‘s a complex man beneath these body-rocking beats.
