Honest expression through spoken word. AudioLogical is an artist from Metro-Detroit. He began his love of music at the young age of 13 working in nightclubs as a DJ before he could even see over the booth. He spent much of his adolesecence sneaking into local nightclubs to get a chance to hone his craft. At this time he also began to write poetry, and it seemed to offer him a mode of expression that was much needed in his not-so-ordinary life. He grew up in a less fortunate part of a very nice area in Metro-Detroit, and his parents had struggled to provide him the meager life they did. The freedom he was given made his life even more strange, and it allowed him to experience a great deal of the music industry before he even was able to drive. Once Audio met music producers B. Aware and Chris Macom in 2001, things got more serious. Simple poems turned to full fleshed-out songs, and that was beginning of the artist we know as AudioLogical. After a few small releases on compilations, Audio would take to the judgemental and close-knit Detroit underground hip-hop scene to pay his dues and prove his worth. After many years of laying quiet and developing his sound, a solo album became his focus. With the help of his Co-Owners at Lost Science, Audio would record his first record and build a custom studio in an ardurous 4 year process. Once construction of the studio was completed, Lost Science would move into their new studio and out of the old inner-city Pontiac wharehouse, that had served as the studio for the inception of this company. Most of the tracks on the first album where recorded in a heatless, run-down, vacant wharehouse in a terribly crime-ridden part of Pontiac. Once they moved they began to mix and master the album, and before long they would issue the release of AudioLogical "The Tragedy EP". Throughout the buildup to this release Audio would ramp up his performance schedule, playing countless venues around Detroit and even traveling around the state a bit. Audio has recently been seen on stage at The MetroTimes Blowout Music Festival. He has also played at Union Street Station, Paycheck's, The Old Miami, The Bullfrog, The Ritz, Club Jam, UHF Records, to name a few. He is currently on a midwest mini-tour, often times with his new found band which provides live recreations of his electronic instrumental tracks. This represents a very unique direction for the music he onced called "hip-hop", which is now transforming into something difficult to categorize. It's a little bit spoken-word, a little bit funk, and there's even a touch of soul. AudioLogical is currently booking shows in the Midwest in promotion of the debut album.
