Release Date: 7th January 2020
Born and bred in London, Anjunabeats started life as a university project in the year 2000. Today, Anjunabeats is one of the world’s best-loved dance labels. Over 700 releases spanning two decades wear the iconic Anjuna ‘A’.
To celebrate, they’ve opened the vault for a handpicked group of artists from the label’s 20-year history. Each artist will sift through thousands of hours of music to create a definitive, mix of their all-time favourite Anjunabeats releases.
On 7 January, Genix delivers the fifteenth mix in the series.
"Hailing from the Midlands, Genix has been in our orbit since 2010. He's a chap who appreciates an Ibiza sunset (perhaps with a cocktail in hand) as much as we do, and, like many of the artists featured in this series, has been a student of trance music for many, many years.
Damo released music on several other U.K. labels before joining our family with a remix of 7 SKIES ‘Caffeine’. He got our attention with his flair for layered bass arrangements, which he showcased on a 2011 collaboration release with Mike Koglin (‘Helion’ and ‘Dyno’).
His take on ‘Home’ cemented his place as a label regular, and he has since delivered a continuous stream of wonderful, melodic club instrumentals like ‘Durban’, ‘Lima’ and ‘Run’ - the latter brings back fond memories of one particular Above & Beyond show at Ultra Miami.
Damo pushes himself. Whether he's in the studio, breaking world records or DJing at Everest Base Camp, this is an artist who always puts the work in. Of late, he's been channelling Randy Katana and Gat Decor, producing bass-heavy hitters like ‘Death Valley’ and ‘Kill Switch’. Where will Genix go next? We can't wait to find out." - Above & Beyond
"I fondly remember the early days of Anjunabeats. In my early 20’s I used to work in a record shop and would often get excited by the new white labels that came in. It was a time when I was really finding my feet as a music producer & DJ. I would often play the brand new Anjuna tracks I had on vinyl in my DJ sets and hear these tracks in clubs like Passion & Gatecrasher. I really fell in love with Anjunabeats around this time, and this will explain a little why I chose a lot of tracks from this era. In the last 20 years, Anjunabeats has evolved so much, incorporating so many other sounds and styles but has never lost its identity. Anjunabeats has a soul, and this is why its ever-growing Anjunafamily is so special. For me to be a part of this makes me feel so proud and honoured." - Genix
