Generik feat. Nicky Van She - The Weekend [SirupMusic – SIR714]
‘The Weekend’ is the debut single from Tyson O’Brien a.k.a. Generik. Already known for his DJ skills, (not to mention his hard partying exploits) tearing up dance floors from Melbourne to Monaco, ‘The Weekend’ sees Generik emerge from the studio with proof positive, that he’s a producer to be reckoned with. Add in a stunning vocal from Nicky Van She, and you have a track destined to kick-start weekends everywhere.
Hotwiring hyperactive house with euphoric ‘90s rave piano and a sleek guitar solo, Generik’s maiden voyage into the studio reflects a natural talent, as well as the energy and finely-tuned ear for the dancefloor he’s developed during his 24/7 clubland adventures. Naturally, the track was born on a bender, which started in a London pub and spilled back to Nicky Van She’s house until all hours. “Nicky started singing the vocal into his phone on the train home,” recalls Tyson. “We got home and started banging out the piano chords and the core of the track was made.”
‘The Weekend’ signals a pivotal point for Tyson. Since cutting his teeth at iconic Melbourne clubs like ONELOVE and SuperDisco, this self-confessed joker of the deck has become the ace of clubs. Armed with killer DJ sets and that famous 1000-kilowatt smile, Generik has earned his dues, tearing it up at highly respected parties including: the Bromance Tour alongside - Brodinski and Gesaffelstein, Stereosonic, Big Day Out Boiler Room 2014, Coachella Villa After Parties (including designer Jeremy Scott), SXSW 2014, EMC closing party alongside Boys Noize and Cajmere, the highly rated Alison Wonderland warehouse parties - the list goes on...
It’s that quest for the perfect party that propels Tyson’s music and runs deep within ‘The Weekend.’ In the studio, his wild side takes a rest as he brings laser-like focus to his music, drawing upon the infamous parties lived and loved, to create a soundtrack carefully designed to fuel the fun as the weekend draws near again.
Completing the package is the stylish house mix from much-hyped Belgian duo Arches, plus a deeper, bass house mix from rising stars Terace responsible for THAT killer remix of Peking Duk’s ‘High’ and Sydney Pacha resident Glover flexes the mainroom muscle. As the man himself states in typical, no holds barred fashion, “I think if you put ‘The Weekend’ on and you don’t want to dance, there’s definitely something wrong with your brain or your ears.”
