The Generis label may have been short lived, but it provided some stellar releases during it's period of activity.
"Oceania / Meridian" was, and still is, my favourite release from them, not to mention one of my favourite releases full stop.
Andrew Byrne & Christian Parkinson would go on to compose a great many awesome tracks, both together and separately, but this represents some of their earlier work together, and both sides of this vinyl are outstanding.
Nestling comfortably amidst the epic house movement, theses tracks are atmospheric, melodic, well produced and just designed to give you a rush on the dance floor.
As a point of reference, they are quite similar in sound to the kind of stuff that Paul Van Dyk (ably assisted by Johhny Klimek!) was churning out around the same time, so if you're into that, and haven't heard this, then I would strongly recommend seeking this release out, you won't be disappointed.
