When Code Red started we promised that we would give talented producers a chance. When we say something like that it´s not because we want to sound cool, or because it´s good for our image, but because we truly believe in young and fresh talent. Venomenal is a youngster who’s producing the most amazing tunes. He never had the chance to release them, but that’s all in the past now. We’re proud to present his first release ever: Gameboy
Venomenal was born as Geert Huizenga and grew up in a small town in the most northern part of The Netherlands. As a little boy Venomenal was inspired by his father to listen and make all types of music. As a result the young Dutchman started playing the piano at the age of twelve. It wasn’t love at first sight with dance music though. Young Geert was inspired by Deadmau5, but produced pop and rock music when he first started.
After a small break he discovered house music legend Axwell and his interest in house music grew further from that moment on. And that’s how productions such as Gameboy were born. Meeting the guys from Magnificence spurred him on and resulted in a meeting with Marcus Schössow. In the meantime Geert applied for the conservatory in Enschede and actually got admitted.
Gameboy takes you on a groovy journey through an exciting house adventure that builds up to an unexpected drop that would even surprise Super Mario. But seriously, Gameboy is a track that keeps building up and can be played almost everywhere. The beautiful piano melody, the refined details and gaming sounds, the groovy kick and bassline, it all fits together perfectly. No surprise that label Chief Marcus Schössow was blown away by this fresh track from Venomenal.
We’re proud to launch Venomenal his career and first track at Code Red. Watch out for Gameboy, because we’re pretty sure this young and talented boy will stay in the game!
