Biography

Far from the average knucklehead up on the block, out of New York's Yonkers district, beneath the shade of a single tree stands the cool demeanor of Loer Velocity…the melodious hush factor!

Gracefully enough, Loer (pronounced Lower) has ripped through NY's underground hip-hop music scene with poetic leisure, adding to his proficiently developed mural. Coming from a pure background of Mcee battles, club promotions and graff writing, Loe found himself at the heart of a growing scene, sharing the stage with, then, up & coming artists such as Sara Jones, Mos Def, muMs, Talib Kweli, and Saul Williams at venues like The Nuyorican Poets CafÈ and S.O.B's since 1995. Throughout Loe stayed busy in the studio, fine-tuning his recording skills and working with a wide range of artists.

Loer Velocity's collaborations have been numerous and they put his name on the radar of hip hop fans as early as 1999 when he first appeared on the Scienz Of Life album Coming Forth By Day. Further appearances on 12î singles with Ace Lover, The Ancients and his own affiliate crew Not For Nothin', plus albums such as LIFE Long's Struggler's Paradise, the second volume of the Supperappin' series and Embedded music founder DJ Ese's recent Side: Two have laid the foundation for his solo material.

2004 saw the release of Loe's debut solo 12î single "Breakout" which was positively reviewed in XLR8R and Elemental among others, as well as being placed on an episode of MTv's MADE. More recently Loer Velocity released the mix-tape "Loe Noise Reduction - The Hush Movement" a collage of previously unreleased recordings from over the years. The mix-tape garnered him attention in XXL's Chairman's Choice column. As a soloist, Loe has definitely lowered the velocity of those attempting to overstep their boundaries.
