The moment that the collective dance music world has been waiting for has finally arrived. At long last, Anyma has unveiled his debut album Genesys, which lands through both Afterlife and Interscope. Originally revealing the news during his weekend one performance at Tomorrowland‘s Freedom stage, Anyma shared the name of his first-ever LP across LED screen along with a broadcast of its track titles, with many still speculating which sought-after IDs would be included. With a collection that spans back to 2022 singles “Angel 1” with Innellea, “Consciousness” with Dancing Astronaut Artist To Watch in 2023 Chris Avantgarde, and “The Sign” with CamelPhat, Anyma has truly encapsulated his best work to date.
Leading the way for the new Genesys members is one of Anyma’s most requested IDs “Samsara” with Sevdaliza, which came paired with a stunning visual of snake like wires that attached to a futuristic robot. And one of the highlight moments in Tale of Us sets for the last year is joined by an elite group of previously unreleased records that include “Chordial,” “Unearth,” “Walking With A Ghost” featuring Delhia de France, and “The Pact.” “Save Me” with Cassian and Poppy Baskcomb also joins the tracklist, having been one of the most in-demand melodic techno tracks over the last few months. And while some may be wondering why Anyma’s pairing with RÜFÜS DU SOL is absent, he’d already confirmed that it’s “next up.”
With an elite grouping of collaborators for Anyma’s debut LP, Genesys makes a compelling case to ultimately become dance music’s top album of the year when it’s all said and done. By partnering with the illustrious Interscope Records, Dancing Astronaut‘s 2022 Label of the Year Afterlife has solidified its name at the top of the music pyramid. Spanning 14 tracks in total, it’s not far fetched to say Anyma may even grab the attention of the Grammys in the coming months. Stream the full LP below.
