Jason Ross is one of the great young talents in dance music, highlighted by Above & Beyond as their breakthrough artist of the year, and being named an Artist to Watch by renowned electronic music blogs like LessThan3 and YourEDM. Some of dance music’s finest artists are lining up to support him, including Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Seven Lions, Kaskade, Andrew Bayer, ilan Bluestone, Cosmic Gate, Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten, Paul Oakenfold and Gareth Emery.
Early 2014 saw Jason’s true beginning when “Burma” was released, landing him squarely on the radar of the Anjunabeats A&R team and Above & Beyond, who played the track in their weekly Group Therapy Radio show (ABGT). The next week, listeners of ABGT voted “Burma” to be played again as Record of the Week, and then again for the following week’s show. It would be an understatement to say it’s rare for a non-Anjunabeats track to be played in three consecutive episodes of the radio show. For perspective, it’s happened less than 5 times in nearly 600 total episodes going back to 2004. Jason signed to Anjunabeats soon after.
His tracks have proven to be bona fide dance floor gold, blasting through sound systems at Madison Square Garden, the EDC Vegas Main Stage, and countless other venues. Above & Beyond and many others continue to see massive crowds surge with excitement whenever they drop a Jason Ross track. The balance of powerful emotion and electrifying energy created in his productions is proving to be a perfect yin and yang, earning him the “future face of trance” crown by Electric Daisy Carnival creators Insomniac.
Since “Burma” he has released a sequence of galvanizing tunes on the label, including “Elements,” “Cairo,” and his collaboration with Wrechiski, “Atlas,” which quickly shot up to the #1 spot on the Beatport Trance chart. Most recently, “Coaster” and “Monarch” have been heaping up praise, including support from the Anjunabeats core of A&B, Andrew Bayer and ilan Bluestone, along with Seven Lions, Armin van Buuren, Gareth Emery, Andrew Rayel, Andi Durrant, Markus Schulz, Ben Gold, Andy Moor, Cosmic Gate, Super8 & Tab, Dennis Shepherd, Kyau & Albert and many more.
UK based Genix has built up a reputation as one of the most fresh EDM artistes with cutting edge production and DJ sets that have cemented his name on the biggest events around the world, standing shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, Ferry Corsten and Sander Van Doorn.
His 10 year + DJ career has taken him across the globe, playing at the elite clubs and brands across the UK, Europe, Asia, Middle East, Ibiza. Genix is the former Resident & promoter for Passion @ The Emporium in the UK where he has warmed up for the DJ elite such as Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Eddie Halliwell and is hugely experience after over 10 years behind the decks.
In the studio Genix has developed his own sound – a unique fusion of Tech, Trance, Progressive, House and Electro… it’s hard to define the Genix sound but you know when you hear it! Groovy and infectious basslines and stomping beats combine with uplifting and electronic elements!
He has released his productions on the biggest labels in the industry including a favourite on Anjunabeats, Vandit, Armada, Spinnin and hit the beatport trance number one with his collaboration with Mike Koglin titled ‘Dyno’. Other huge 2014 hits such as ‘Run’ on Anjunabeats and ‘Lux’ released on Vandit have won record of the week on the leading radio stations and have featured heavily in the sets of the world’s elite DJ’s.
Genix produces all of his own work and has released over 50 remix and 50 solo singles with a very impressive discography behind him! The prolific producers’ work has featured on Nintendo computer games and BBC television programmes along with regular plays on the world’s leading Radio stations. With a midas touch, his remix fingers have worked with artistes such as Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, Sander Van Doorn, Bobina, Mike Koglin, M.I.K.E., Agnelli&Nelson, The Thrillseekers, Menno De Jong and John Askew with the pinacle being the massive ‘Waiting 4′ by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers released on Ministry of Sound and was a huge hit on BBC Radio 1 before the original was released in the official UK charts!
In 2005 Genix also achieved a Guinness World Record for the longest DJ set in history with a massive 84 hours, how many DJs share the same accolade?! Whilst raising money for a charity, Genix’ name was printed in the world’s most published book!
From Hungary to the world, Myon exhilarates with a perfect studio anchor in trance, deep house and core house dimensions. Trained at the jazz tip and cohesive in a pop background, Myon unearths a reminiscent marriage between various styles and genres from dance floor anthems and underground records to filmic sounds and live orchestra. At the pioneering production seat this now US based artist rivets a new position within the electronic music industry, in close association with some of the globe’s most respected producers and vocalists, taking 2016 onto a new road after ten years of success as part of duo Myon & Shane 54 who hit #62 spot on DJ Mag Top 100. Together they encapsulated the inaugural depiction of a trance and house lead project, leading the market with chart smashing records, collaborations with in-demand artists and exploding on enviable stages across the globe.
Hitting up Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Miami and an incredible list of premier clubs across the US, EU, UK and Asia, the duo set up an huge figurehead of success. From the studio, they delivered ‘Strangers’ with pop sensation Tove Lo and Seven Lions hitting the Billboard top 5 together with ‘Lie To Me’ and ‘If I Fall’ both with Cole Plante taking #1 Billboard spot, hailing as the first Hungarian artists to chart on Billboard top 100. Beatport trance charts also saw the reign of over forty original records and remixes to take the ranks from Lana Del Ray’s ‘Young and beautiful’ remix, ‘Neon Lights’ for Demi Lovato and a sheer range of remixes for Above & Beyond, Armin Van Burren and Craig David. Myon’s road ahead brings truth to his passion anticipating an array of music on his label Ride Recordings amongst others, with the upcoming release of his next original single alongside American Idol vocalist Jenn Blosil on We Are The Ones.
