DJ and producing since 1998
Genres: UK Funky, Afrohouse, Global bass, & Tribal beats
Corey Maass, producing and performing as Secret Agent Gel, currently runs a monthly house music event, posts regular studio mixes, and produces 128bpm bangers. The focus is on syncopated rhythms, deep bass, and catchy arrangements. When DJing, his own tunes get blended with South Africa's smoothest tunes and London's grimiest productions for a mix that will make anybody dance.
Secret Agent Gel has always obsessed over UK dance music. In the early 2000's he made IDM-influenced garage and 2-step, wore a light-up jumpsuit, and performed all over the US and UK with the likes of Datachi, Drop the Lime, and Chicks on Speed. A few years later, he was one of the first Americans to play and produce dubstep, putting out records with Dub War (America's first dubstep party), and played with Kode 9, Joe Nice and Hank Shocklee.
Over the years, Gel evolved toward the dance floor, influenced by UK funky house and other dance music from Africa and the Caribbean. He had a radio show on Sub.FM for years, threw dozens of parties around New York City, and DJ'd monthly at special events, underground raves, and major night clubs. Now, to promote the local and global communities, he hosts a podcast at BassTourist.com and organizes a local DJ co-op.
