Genix delivers a slice of clubbing musical genius this month at Zouk Genting


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!” 

It isn’t quite as high as Mount Everest, but Genix will still be in the rarefied atmosphere of Resorts World Genting at 6,000 feet above sea level. The party starts this month and starts with Genix on 29th February 2020
