GENR8 (Big Riddims, Bad Taste, P51, Nvision, Basshead, LA)

Rene Reyes aka GENR8 is a man of many guises. He has been an integral part in several production power houses throughout the years and today continues to push the boundaries of electronic music production. Rene started out djing in Miami for several years before taking aim at producing, and has been passionate about primarily drum & bass production since. Back in 2004, Rene started production duo Alliance alongside pop music producer The Illfactor. The same year, they won a remix competition put together by Intercom Records for which they released their first single "Jive". Alliance went on to release several dance floor smashers on labels such as Incite, Nemesis and Cymbalism.

The year 2005 was a big one for GENR8 and his Alliance project. Alliance was picked up by Dieselboy’s Human imprint for a ground-tearing dnb remix of dance icon BT’s “The Great Escape". The remix was later included on a compilation titled, “The Human Resource,” which debuted at #14 on Billboard's Electronic Album chart. Around the same time, Rene caught the attention of Vegas and Maldini from legendary dnb group Bad Company. They quickly picked him up for the first two compilation releases on the now well established, Bad Taste Records.

Based in Miami at the time, Rene was invited by four-time world champion turntablist DJ Craze to collaborate on some tunes for his new dnb label, Cartel Inc. Out of those sessions he released two songs alongside Infiltrata (12th Planet) and Craze himself. In 2007, GENR8 teamed up with South Africa’s darkchilds Counterstrike for a melodic, but deadly track that caught the attention of famed US glitch'n'bass mob, Evol Intent. The tune was released later that year on their on imprint, Evol Intent Recs. GENR8 was also highly influential in the success of another production project known as The Chosen. Under The Chosen, he has had releases with reputable labels such as Habit, Nemesis and recently Ohm Resistance.

He relocated to Brooklyn, NY in 2007 and started releasing music on his own label Apparatus Recordings. The label saw lots of action in 2008 with releases from SST, Glitch, The Chosen and other artist from around the globe. Soon after he linked up with one of the top U.S. labels Ohm Resistance to release The Chosen- Faith of the Fallen backed with SST & Glitch- Let it Bleed. SST is currently in the studio putting final touches on his debut solo album set for release in early 2010 on Ohm Resistance. The album is titled “Stepping Through Shadows” and is an onslaught of progressive beats and sounds that cover break beats from various tempos.
