Genix has deep roots in dance music that have helped his production career to grow exponentially since his debut release in 2003. Since then he has become a mainstay of Anjunabeats, with other releases on Armind, Vandit Records, Enhanced Records and Reset Records to name a few. DJing alongside the world’s elite along the way, he has become a huge name in his own right.
Pushing an explosive new sound that makes a departure from many of his previous works, he is one of the most exciting acts in Anjunabeats’ impressive stable. With no compromise in his style across his 100+ released singles and remixes, he is an artist who is truly dedicated to his scene. Collaborating with and remixing the likes of Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Gabriel & Dresden and Cosmic Gate, he has become part of the fabric of the scene. His formidable sound blends the most vibrant elements of trance, techno, house and progressive into a potent, high octane cocktail. With a penchant for in-your-face textures and sounds set against stunning melody and beautiful atmospherics, his sound is at the vanguard of the trance movement. Blending reverence for the formative sounds of a 1990s dance music upbringing with the sounds of now, his tracks are consistently among the most spinetingling in the scene.
He first found fame as a resident and promoter at legendary UK club night Passion, which was one of the epicentres of the ‘90s/2000s trance explosion. Cutting his name alongside the scene’s biggest DJs, he amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience that would give him solid foundations for the rest of his career. By the time he turned his hand to production in the early 2000s, he had a keen understanding of what worked on a dancefloor, giving him a huge head-start. It quickly became clear that he was as talented in the studio as behind the decks, and it wasn’t long before he was attracting major attention. His massive remix of Peter Gelderblom’s ‘Waiting 4’ version Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ ‘Standing On The Shore’ was a huge hit on BBC Radio 1, and over the years he has remixed many of the trance scene’s finest, including Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz and Sander Van Doorn.
Following years of building his name via releases on cult trance labels, he began a long and successful relationship with scene leaders Anjunabeats in 2013. Over 20 originals and remixes later with Above & Beyond’s acclaimed label and he continues to be one of their most important artists, with some major plans in the works to elevate him to higher reaches still. His DJing has taken him across the UK, Europe, Asia, Middle East and Ibiza in recent times, and at one point he held the Guinness World Record for the longest DJ set in history, clocking in at 84 hours. He also recently broke the world record for playing a DJ set at the highest recorded land altitude, playing at Mount Everest Base Camp at 5,500 metres above sea level. He has supported Above & Beyond at epic shows across the world including at the New York Expo Centre, The Gorge Amphitheater in Washington and the O2 Arena Prague (as part of the ABGT350 event), and laid waste to some of the world’s biggest dance festivals including Tomorrowland, Creamfields, Dreamstate and A State of Trance.
His acclaimed 2019 compilation ‘Anjunabeats Worldwide 09’ has raked in over 1.2 million streams and was supported by a hugely successful world tour, while his huge collaboration with Grum ‘The Light’ hit #1 on Beatport’s Techno Bestsellers Chart for 2 weeks, peaking at #12 on their overall sales chart. The track received huge DJ support across the board, from Joel Corry to Oliver Heldens to Armin van Buuren, becoming the fourth most-played techno song of 2020, according to 1001tracklists.
His long-awaited debut album ‘199X’ is due for release in September 2021, showing off his full range of styles, with a supporting world tour hitting territories including the US, UK, EU and Australia. He’ll warm up for all this and tease material from the album at Above & Beyond’s gargantuan 11,000 capacity Group Therapy event at London’s Drumsheds in August, making for his biggest London appearance to date.
