同时Genome也扎根于上海的地下音乐场景中日以继夜地呈现最具创新意识的国际艺术家派对,成功地将诸如Gaika，Object Blue、Dark0、Mobilegirl、Murlo、Lao、WhyBe、Moro、Naked 和 Dinamarca 等等令人兴奋的新声音带给国内听众与俱乐部爱好者们，并与Halcyon Veil厂牌合作举办中国Showcase巡演 ，Genome 团队同时也在国内其他城市如北京、杭州与深圳定期举办派对传播自己的不妥协的音乐理念 。在今年2月，厂牌团队刚完成了日本欧洲总计8个城市的巡演，所到之处均人满为患，在西班牙站甚至吸引到了Arca的前来热舞，厂牌也参与了2019年柏林CTM音乐节，开幕当天厂牌核心成员Rui Ho在Berghain的Panorama Bar演出，随后co-founder Kilo-Vee与noctilucents也在Berghain的Saule进行了演出并都受到Fact杂志的高度评价。
"All the press on Shanghai’s Genome 6.66Mbp might have you believing they are impossibly cool. With a collaged, destructive digital art aesthetic, spiffy photoshoots with the members donning post-rave, totally alien outfits, and music that sounds like it could soundtrack autonomous Tesla rides and 45-minute space shuttle trips in the future, the label founders are like bait for Western publications looking for the next big thing out of China.
The reality is more nuanced for the crew of young creatives and DJs running a fledgling label and experimental club nights in Shanghai. Not to say they aren’t the next big thing. Their most recent release, Fushigi, features glitched, airy synths with hyperactive vocals from Golin—an artist living in Belgium, trained in the U.S., who sings in Japanese. This kind of mix of identities and styles feels like the one throughline for Genome’s releases. While primarily on the darker, clubbier end of the spectrum, they venture into ambient textures on last year’s label comp, Self Salvation. The selections protest against a utilitarian club sound, meant just for the immediacy of dancing, into one more emotive and reflective of the complexities of our decentralized world." - Bandcamp
i-D : "Founded by Shanghai friends Tavi and Kilo Vee in 2016 as a place to release music they love and a space to party with like-minded individuals, the record label and club night is cool. While not limiting themselves to any one genre, they have a tendency to lean towards forward-thinking weirdo club music, working with musicians from across the world but with a focus on celebrating local talent like producers Hyph11e, Dirty K, RVE, Khemist and Charity"
Electronic Beats ;" Genome6.66Mbp is the newest electronic music label from Shanghai, which is China’s most fashion-forward and future-facing megalopolis. It was born after its members met at the legendary underground club The Shelter, which closed its doors at the end of last year. Peopled by a motley crew of 20-something producers, DJs and fashion mavens, Genome is as much an outgrowth of a specific time and place—the financial powerhouse of Shanghai in an era when China is rising as an economically dominant steward of the future—as it is an expression of the identity-fracturing influence of the internet and social media ubiquity."
