Since being crowned one of DA’s artists to watch in 2013, Miami-bred Henrix has spared no mercy throughout his rookie year. Originals for Size Records such as “Hit It” and “Jumangee” emblazoned his brand across progressive house and appearances at Electric Zoo and TomorrowWorld had the DJ/producer taking the festival stage. Reaching 50,000 fans on Facebook, Henrix is now unloading his USB in appreciation of his fans — offering a 7-track bootleg pack as a free download. Nothing short of on-point mixing between energetic and contagious tracks, the latest from Henrix has him at this best in an appropriate celebration.

Jumangee has taken on a dominating, disruptive, diabolical connotation. Not just because of the similarly titled Robin Williams blockbuster, but because of the festival-crushing anthem from Henrix and Wayne & Woods. Both Dancing Astronaut‘s Artists to Watch of 2013, the Size youth will take their “Jumangee” hit on the road with their collaborative North American tour.

Now entering the latter half of the year and closing out his first big league festival season, the Miami-based artist heads to New York’s premier festival for his Electric Zoo debut.

Two of Dancing Astronaut’s Artists to Watch for 2013 have teamed up to deliver an animalistic progressive house journey. Size Records duo Wayne & Woods and Miami-based Henrix finally release “Jumangee,” their collaborative anthem that has been garnering support since Miami Music Week.

It’s not every day that two of Dancing Astronaut’s top Artists to Watch team up together in the studio. With their forthcoming single “Jumangee” set to drop next week on Size Records, Wayne & Woods and Henrix sat down to talk about the collaborative process behind the biggest release of their collective careers to date.
The track traces its history back to December of last year, when Henrix hit up the Swedish duo on Twitter following their free download release of “Pyramid.”
“I told them I really liked it and we decided to work on a track together,” Henrix says. “I had a drop idea for it and I sent it to them. They liked it and, in the matter of a day, they had a melody going on as well. So we just started sending stuff back and forth.”
Despite having not yet met in person and using different software (Wayne & Woods use Ableton Live, whereas Henrix swears by Logic), the producers found immediate collaborative chemistry as the track ricocheted between Miami and Stockholm swiftly taking shape.
Ferries pulled in to the Battery Maritime Building at New York City’s South Street Seaport last Sunday — and not to bring tourists to Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, or any of the neighboring landmarks. Governors Island opened its gates to the dance music scene once again and the summer season at the EDM Shangri-La would be kicked off by Hardwell, Dyro, Audien, and Henrix. Waiting out the frigid winter months for the two that define its summer, New Yorkers were anxious ready to return to the waterfront man-made beach venue – eager to soak in the sun and to indulge in the beats of their favorite artists.
Henrix was named one of Dancing Astronaut’s artist to watch in 2013 only four months ago, but he has since risen to the occasion, flaunting gem after gem while beneath the spotlight. The releases of “Hit It” and “Rock This Dream“ made for splashes among the release circuit, and he now returns to his roots to give his latest effort away free of charge. Alongside another Floridian, Darmon, Henrix delivers a collaborative remix of Capital Cities’ “Safe and Sound,” a big room structure surrounding a happy-go-lucky vocal hook trademarked by his signature percussive energy.
New Yorkers have a season of partying to look forward to this summer at one of their favorite sun-kissed destinations — and they won’t have to wait much longer for it to begin. One week after EDC NY wraps up at Citi Field, the gates at Governors Island will open with Hardwell as the inaugural headliner on May 26th. Along for New York City’s first show at the party paradise will be supporting sets from Dyro, Audien, and Henrix. New York City dance fans, anticipate an early return to the beloved Governors Island and prepare for a summer to remember.
