The Colombian-born, Brooklyn-based producer Martin Velez (a.k.a Son Of A Son) is set to release his debut EP titled Gemini I on his own fresh imprint Leave Of Absence. After studying architecture in both Bogota and Milan, Velez migrated to Brooklyn to continue his studies at Pratt Institute University. Eventually realizing his passion for music, Velez built up his savings, built a music studio, and enrolled in a music technology masters program at NYU. Later on, Velez and his old high-school buddy from Colombia Samir Oliveros (a.k.a The Landlord) came together in NYC to start their Leave Of Absence imprint, based in Bogota, Colombia.

According to the two musicians: “The idea behind the label and its music is to create tracks that lead you into a mental journey, where the elements unfold with time and absorb the listener, driving them into a state of mind where hopefully they will experience something new or gain a new perspective. Sometimes it’s necessary to take a leave of absence from the ordinary and journey out into the world to find out who you really are. So take the open invitation and see were you might end up.”

To celebrate the release of his first ever EP and Leave Of Absence’s inaugural release, XLR8R is offering up an exclusive stream of the Son Of A Son EP. You can listen it in full below.
