Musical purism and close-minded genre wars have run their course the next generation in music compilations has arrived! Forget everything you know or have presumed about mix compilations, this one is different. Generationext are all about taking the usual principles and traditions of club nights and releases and turning them on their head. Genre purism is long forgotten and cutting-edge genre orgies are the order of the day.
As a concept, Generationext was born in Cairns a city perfectly positioned to get the cream of the worlds dance crop visiting them on regular occasions, yet distanced enough not to be dictated to by big city club politics. In Cairns, a city dominated by transient travellers and fun-loving party personalities, musical influences are varied and constantly evolving. Unlike the major cities, the dance scene isnt splintered and, in the case of Generationext, events tend to take on the form of mini festivals, with a mish-mash of sounds shaking the foundations throughout the night. Attend one of the crews parties and youll find everything from breaks, to house, electro, techno, trance and hard dance all in one night and all under one roof! Everyone from Amber Savage, Phil K, Tall Paul, to NuBreed, the Organ Donors, Sharif Galal, Poxymusic and Bexta and have dished up their unique slant on dance music, with the parties being so successful the crew decided to take it to the next level.And so the Generationext CD series was born.
