Generik's Exclusive Mix
Generik is gearing up for a massive summer including six weeks of shows at Pacha & Ushuaia in Ibiza, as well as his UK debut at Creamfields! We’re readying you for the madness with his Exclusive Mix which is highlighted by three unreleased tunes from his label YOU DO YOU!
Hi Tyson, thanks for joining us today! How’s your year been going thus far?
Thanks for having me! It’s been great and only getting better!
For someone who hasn’t heard your music or is unfamiliar with your background, how would you describe your music?
Fun, housey, party, vibes, good times, energy... yeah I think that’s a good description!
What are three highlight tracks or artists included in your mix and why do they stand out to you?
I’ve got three unreleased tracks from my label YOU DO YOU! One of them is mine, another from Brisbane legends Sevader and the third from Scottish weapon Hannah Laing!
Let’s talk about your new music, as you recently just released a smash a few months ago called “Tony!" What’s the story behind that tune?
It's a tune that I really love, it's something a little different from me. Traditionally I’ve written more vocal, housey stuff but this is a little more club oriented. It’s a direction I’m going to be going in I think a little more. I love DJing and dancing in clubs and I feel like that’s where I want my music sitting.
You’ve got quite a packed Ibiza schedule this summer and you’re also sharing the stage with Calvin Harris, MK, and Duke Dumont at Creamfields later in the year. Tell us more about that!
I can’t wait for summer to start! I’ll be playing at Pacha & Ushuaia in Ibiza for six weeks and couldn’t be more pumped! There’s something about that island that just gives you life! Creamfields is going to be mental! It’s my first gig ever in the UK so I’m absolutely BUZZING!!!
You’ve also recently launched your own label, YOU DO YOU, this year. What are your goals with the label? Any interesting releases or artists that you’re excited to showcase on the label?
I think the goal is just to release music that I like and hopefully others like it too! I’ve put a few of the tunes in the mix so I hope you enjoy them!
And lastly, is there anything that you’re excited about in the upcoming months that you’d like to tell our readers about? Any interesting releases or tour dates coming up?
My new tune “Bunny” will be coming out soon, as well as another one I don’t have a title for, more releases on the label! Plenty of Vegas dates and other shows around America and probably some golf haha, thanks the chat guys!
