Geniuser is a collaboration between Giuseppe De Bellis and Michael Allen. They first met in Copenhagen in the summer of 1991, introduced by a mutual friend and shared a love of music and painting and kept in touch throughout the years.
Michael Allen was a member of The Models,Rema Rema,Mass & the criminally overlooked Wolfgang Press.
Giuseppe was born in southern Italy, in the small fishing town of Taranto, and spent his formative years in this beautiful remote town building his dreams and planning his escape. In his early twenties he moved to Copenhagen and started making and releasing music under various guises for years.
In the summer of 1998 Giuseppe moved from Copenhagen to London and re-opened communications with Michael but after very little discussion they started to make music together. The Orb had generously given Giuseppe and Michael the loan of their studio in Victoria. They were holed up in the studio for some six months writing material looking to fuse their very different influences into something fresh and worthwhile. The fruit of their labour is the album entitled ‘Mud Black’ under the project name Geniuser.
