Yvan Genkins:

Yvan Genkins was born in Switzerland 1979. His first impact with electronic music came in the middle 90's, sharing this passion with friends who were organising parties around his city.

But his first snatching experience that make him move a step forward took place in Germany where he could stay one full year in 1997 and get deeper into clubculture if you think about Berlin's Tresor gold time or Munich's Alter Flughafen Riem Club.

Kevin Saunderson, Joey Beltram, Luke Slater are some of the Techno Masters that gave him the right pulse to go behind the decks and start a DJ career.

Back in Switzerland, Yvan could build a solid profile all over the years, hitting some of the most important spots of the country like Caprices Festival, Nordstern, Mad or QClub.

He likes to build tight and pumpin DJ-sets focussing on funky rollin grooves and hypnotic basses, the main ingredients, he likes to focus on to catch the most exigent audiences. His style might be defined as tech-house but with a sens of modern old schoolism.

On the production side, Yvan strives to find rare patterns and beats from every kind of rhythmical music like funk, afro-beat or soul to transform them into his very personal groove and building relentless loops that can marry both energy and sexyness into powerful tracks. No wonder if Yvan considers himself as a chicago music fan.

His savoir-faire catched the attention of Mendo from Cadenza, one of the best swiss export and hits-maker. They started several collaborations as both remixers and original producers and went charted by all the tenors of the techno scene like Luciano, Riche Hawtin, Marco Carola or Reboot to name a few.

Every one of their productions hits the top of the charts if you think about their recent releases on famous labels like 8 bit, Defected, Bla Bla, Monza Ibiza, Suara, Saved, Jett, Recycle, Clarisse of course and many more.



Suara is a label based in Barcelona run by Spanish DJ and producer Coyu since 2008 that has a reputation for great quality dance music.

Releases on the label come from talented stars in the house and techno worlds like Dosem, Edu Imbernon, Gary Beck, Jay Lumen, Ramiro Lopez, Technasia or Tube & Berger, often backed by stellar remixers like Oxia, Vince Watson, Riva Starr, Gorge or Argy.

Recent releases have once again raised the standard for the label so it's no surprise support often comes in from the likes of Marco Carola, Carl Cox, Loco Dice, Laurent Garnier, Maceo Plex, Joris Voorn, Steve Lawler and many more.

Now up to over 115 releases plus 21 showroom releases and a few compilations, the label is earning the respect from the whole scene. Recently #2 most charted label of 2012 on Resident Advisor's list and #1 Beatport's best tech house track of 2013 with Tube & Berger - Imprint Of Pleasure, Suara is going from strength to strength.

Quite simply! It's tasteful music made for maximum enjoyment on the dancefloor by some of the most interesting artists of the scene.
