Geza X Records
evolved out of Geza’s production work. Geza grew frustrated seeing “hot” independent pop records get overlooked by the mainstream media industry. His legendary punk rock and classic hip hop recordings prove that good stories stand the test of time, often giving a window into public affairs that would otherwise go unnoticed. In today’s market, anyone with enough experience can launch a record company. But can they tell good stories? Geza decided to focus on artists that bring a grassroots touch to musical stories.
Indies release many great records every year but often lack the clout or connections to promote them. And who has time to evaluate all of these gems? Geza’s extensive indie and disc mastering work has garnered him an unsurpassable connection base in this confusing sector of the marketplace. He brings it all together with a well-curated collection of artists. Our criteria are strong catalogues, well-produced records, archival demos, and live recordings unavailable anywhere else. The main goal is to collect old school punk archives, new alternative rock artists, and a collection of Americana artists. We also focus on “soundscapes” and “outsider” music for FILM/TV licensing.
We feel there is a folk art aspect to each of these genres. Geza is an aficionado at finding cultural treasures within this wide scope of musical styles.
is a veteran record producer with 40 years of experience documenting folk artists and pop culture. He was one of the first (and only) professionals to capture the Punk Rock explosion in 1977, creating seminal recordings of bands such as Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, Screamers, Weirdos, Germs, Redd Kross, and over 100 other noteworthy underground bands. Less known are the multitude of hip-hop songs he engineered in the classic 1990's for producers like Ice-T, Rhyme Syndicate, Sir Jinx, and Battlecat. He had a multi-platinum commercial hit with Meredith Brooks' feminist anthem, which was RIAA-certified #1 on Billboard's Pop charts for 4 weeks. He currently operates a multimedia recording, mastering, and video studio in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District.
