Not only does the 29th of February only comes
around once every four years, and this time around it will be a very special
night at Zouk Genting, as English DJ Genix arrives in Malaysia for the first
time ever for a party unlike any other.
The highly anticipated DJ Genix will be claiming the stage of Southeast Asia’s greatest clubbing experience. Hailing from Hinckley, Genix whose
real name is Damion Houchen – got his first record deal at the age of 18 and
his debut release in 2003. Rooted in the trance scene, Genix cut his teeth as
part of the 90s trance explosion as the resident DJ at the infamous UK club
night Passion at The Emporium. Exposure to some of the scene’s biggest DJs led
him to move from the dance floor decks to the studio, turning into production
and remixing. His remix of Peter Gelderblom’s Waiting 4 version of the Red Hot
Chili Peppers’ Standing on the Shore became a massive hit on BBC Radio 1,
paving the way for mega-remixes with trance legends such as Above & Beyond,
Markus Schulz and Sander Van Doorn.
Proving himself to be a cornerstone of the trance
scene, Genix took his beats to a wider audience in 2013 when he began a
long-running collaboration with Anjunabeats, the label of EDM legends Above
& Beyond. Supporting this with global club tours, Genix holds the record
for the playing a DJ set at the highest recorded altitude – spinning at Mount
Everest Base Camp, some 5,600 metres above sea level – and at one point held
the Guinness World Record for the longest DJ set ever at 84 hours. Over the
years, his music has evolved from pure trance to a formidable new sound that
weaves in elements of techno and house into a hard-hitting punch of endorphins.
Evocative and experiential, a Genix song is one that transports you.
"As an artist signed to the Anjunabeats label
under the mentorship of the legendary Above & Beyond, we are very excited
to welcome Genix to spin at Zouk Genting as part of the Anjunabeats Worldwide
Album Tour", says Joseph Ryan, General Manager of Zouk RWG
Genix had this to say about playing at Zouk Genting- "I have to say I’m so excited to be heading back to
Asia and Zouk, Genting! I will be bringing the Anjunabeats worldwide Tour to
you! Along with some brand new music from me. Come along and enjoy. See you
soon on the 29th February!”
