Andrew Bayer & Genix present their debut original collaboration, ‘The Test’, which was first heard on Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats Volume 15 compilation.
Never one to be pinned down by genre, Andrew Bayer has produced some of our label’s finest works, including ‘From The Earth’, ‘Superhuman’, ‘Signs Of The Fall’ and ‘Open End Resource’.
‘The Test’ is Bayer’s third Anjuna collaboration of the year, following ‘Black & Blue’ with ilan Bluestone, and ‘The Launch’ with Cosmic Gate. He’s been locked in his studio working on new original material, but found some time to create a ‘20 Years Of Anjunabeats’ mix, featuring some of his favourite selections from the label’s history.
A year on from the release of Anjunabeats Worldwide 09, Damion Houchen, aka Genix, has cemented his place at the forefront of modern tech-trance. He released ‘The Light’ with Grum in the summer, and has been a regular fixture on Anjuna’s live streaming schedule. 2021 will be another big year for Damion, with much more new music on the horizon.
“I only got a chance to play a rough copy of 'The Test' towards the end of my tour this time last year. I’m so looking forward to blasting this on the road again when gigs are back. Be safe!” - Andrew Bayer
“Andrew Bayer is a genius of a producer. I have always rated him as one of the very best and admired his work for many years. We often chatted about making a track together backstage at various events around the world. We put our heads together to bring you ‘The Test’.” - Genix
‘The Test’ isn’t the first time Andrew and Damion have joined forces - they teamed up for a club mix of ‘Love You More’ (from Andrew’s third studio album ‘In My Last Life’) in 2018.
We’re thrilled to release the latest from this dynamic pairing as our 20th anniversary celebrations continue.
