Muzik Genesis / Bio

The Muzik Genesis project is a spiritual journey through human existence combining various forms of genre. Muzik Genesis is both a Hip-Hop/, Experimental rock music producer. As a DJ Muzik Genesis provides an eclectic musical experience and spins everything from Electronic Dance Music, Hip-Hop/Trip-Hop and Downtempo. The ideology behind Muzik Genesis as an independent artist is not being limited to the label of a specific musical genre and instead tries to demonstrate that music is an active evolutionary force as part of our culture as it is always changing.

The mask behind the Muzik Genesis project, Pablo Orozco-Castro, first started out in 2008 when he took a high school course in music production at the age of 17, while enrolled in a Jazz ensemble at New Roads high school in Santa Monica, CA where he graduated from in 2009. While in high school he was influenced by rap artists such as Nas, Mos Def, Blue Scholars, Nujabes, Shing02, and bands like System of a Down, Tool, Rage Against The Machine and Flobots. In addition, while growing up he became facinated by the anime "otaku" culture, as well as personally influenced and inspired by video games, video game story lines and video game music. Listening to music by Utada Hikaru, Dennis Martin, Takao Miratsu, Nobuo Uematsu, Kaoru Wada and Yokoshimomura, Pablo became deeply intrigued by the sweet melodies that encopassed the experiences of playing video games.

Later in his life, Pablo attended UC Santa Cruz in 2009, studying Psychology and Politics. Many of the emerging themes from his music contain psychological and sociopolitical influences which came from his studies in high school and in college. He became inspired by concepts such as social justice, community empowerment and the resilience of the individual and community. Many of these are concepts and themes that have inspired him lyrically. In addition to his studies in high school and in college, Pablo became deeply inspired lyrically by Serj Tankian, Daron Malakian, Zack De La Rocha, Tom Morello and George Quibuyen to name a few.

Some of Muzik Genesis's recentprojects and interests in projects include DJing Happy Hardcore, J-Core (Japanese Hardcore), J-Trance, and producing and infusing elements of Heavy Metal, Punk, Downtempo, Jazz, Electronic and Hip-Hop. Currently Muzik Genesis is working on the tracks for a full-length album that he is planning on releasing, incorporating many of his musical influences.
