Left Handed Scientists is a hip-hop duo featuring Orko Eloheim (8-Bit+Basquiot) and Bazerkowitz (Anti Citizens). Born in the mid-1970s and raised in Encanto, Eloheim first made his local mark in the 1990s as Orko the Sycotik Alien. Working with underground hip-hop stars like Aceyalone and Saul Williams, he co-founded the (now defunct) label Fuk Da Industry Records. As part of the hip-hop collective Masters of the Universe, he came up alongside fellow locals like Johaz (Deep Rooted), Gonjasufi (with whom he runs the Air Records label), and Odessa Kane.
The Left Handed Scientists full-length Kill Your Present Future was released in 2012 on the Dynasty label. Eloheim and Bazerkowitz also perform together with Eloheim's cousin Black Mikey in a group called BB King Kong.
