Anjunabeats veteran Damion Houchen, aka Genix, returns to the label with ‘Dance It Out’.
A label mainstay for over a decade, Damo is behind some of Anjunabeats’ best-known tracks. ‘Run’, ‘Arrival’ (with Sunny Lax) and his super-collaboration ‘All In’ with Fatum, Jaytech & Judah are all outstanding moments in our discography.
Damo’s sound has evolved over the years, but his abilities as a DJ and a producer continue to impress. His Anjunabeats Worldwide 09 compilation was a triumph, cementing his place at the forefront of modern tech-trance. Damo’s most impressive performance to date saw him being awarded a Guinness World Record for the highest DJ set on land at Mount Everest’s base camp.
Damo’s latest offering, ‘Dance It Out’, is a modern twist on the 90s rave music that he grew up listening to.
‘Over the past year, I’ve been listening to a lot of the old vinyl records that got me into dance music. Artists such as Underworld, Leftfield, The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers really made an imprint on me. I’ve always tried to stay true to the sounds that I love and use them in my productions, so I’ve been focusing on the particular sounds that made me fall in love with electronic music over 20 years ago. I have produced a LOT of music this last year, and I’ve been trying to discover how those sounds made me feel, and incorporate that into my music of today.’ - Genix
2021 will be a big year for Damo. Genix’s latest single ‘Dance It Out’ is out now on Anjunabeats.
