Geena: The ‘Wednesday Alternative’ Mix
Earlier this year marked the announcement of a newly launched record label from the Paris based maestro Geena, a producer whom has amassed a reputation for his intriguing, ethereal take on house and club music.
Antinote, the record label run by Zaltan, has largely been responsible for helping his career to date having released five of his EP's since 2013, many of which have been widley supported and heavily played.
Now as he approaches a new chapter in his career we have invited him to contribute to our mix series, it's long overdue. The first release forthcoming on Worldwide Zen is a self release under his own name of Nicolas Molina.
Listen and read the interview below…
Who are you, where are you and what are you?
Nicolas from Paris, with spanish and pictave origins. My mum calls me "mon chat" (my cat) so it's maybe the better "what am i" answer.
What does your music sound like?
A friend of mine told me there is always some goofy gimmicks within my tracks so goofy and moody house jams is a good thing. But i've created my own label to change the mood of my music to suit my state of mind, expect more diverse sound in the future
Can you draw what you think it sounds like for us (an image from the old internet is acceptable)?

at home, in my bed

What’s your favourite recorded mix of all time?
Too hard to chose guys 🙂
If you could go back to back with any DJ from throughout history, who would it be and why?
Paul Johnson in the golden era of his creative carreer, 'cause take a look to few pictures/videos of him playing cuts…no words needed it's like a storm of mixed feelings between bad boy raw tension and deep / homosexual vibes
What was your first DJ set up at home and what is it now?
laptop + traktor, today, i've turntables i don't use at home
What’s more important, the track you start on or the track you end on?
the track you'll play next
