ĠENN Continue Remix Project Around Acclaimed Debut Album “unum”

& Share JOON’s Edit of “A Muse (In Limbo)”

Anglo-Maltese quartet ĠENN continue their remix project based around 2023 acclaimed debut album unum with an edit of ‘A Muse (In Limbo)’ by fellow Maltese artist JOON. The collection is completed on February 23rd with Grove’s take on ‘Le Saut Du Pigeon’, following New Delhi based producer Goya’s take on ‘Calypso’ from earlier this month. 

JOON is the electronic solo project by Maltese songwriter and producer, Yasmin Kuymizakis. With ethereal vocals, celestial synths, and self-directed music videos inspired by B-movie tropes, JOON immerses listeners in a world of dreamy mysticism. Her debut album Dream Again was released on Italians Do It Better in 2021, delivering a fusion of cushioned beats, woozy electronic layers, and messages of hope. 

In 2023, JOON’s captivating artistry gained further acclaim as she embarked on a direct support tour alongside Future Islands and performances at renowned festivals like Corona Capital in Guadalajara (Mexico), sharing the stage with esteemed artists such as Thundercat, Pussy Riot, Poolside and Regina Spektor

In selecting artists for their reimagining of unum tracks there was a strong focus on PoC and queer artists, and the extension of creative freedom and experimentation explored in unum, as interpreted by each individual. 
As the band explain: “We’re excited to continue this remix project with JOON’s remix of A Muse (In Limbo). As a band, collaborating with other artists is something that we genuinely enjoy as it reinvigorates why we do music in the first place. So when we came up with the remix project idea, we chose three individual artists from three different countries – the UK (Bristol), Malta, and India – who aren’t afraid of pushing the envelope and challenging the norms in their respective countries.” 

Joon uses this force to reinvent the release whilst maintaining focus on the captivating harmonies that bring this expressive path to the track. The percussive beats and layering of the tones shift through such bountiful territories.
