Isn't this artist supposed to be Minamotoya all along? His real name is apparently Kazuma Minamoto -- and his circle is MINAMOTRANCE -- so it should follow that 源 = Minamoto.

Last.fm also tags Genya as an incorrect romanization:

I think you're right. Genya is probably the wrong romanization. Minamotoya should be accurate.

Uploaded a better pic of Minamotoya. Other ones that I've found are blurry as they're from live performances. Minamotoya is the one on the left by the way. I have no idea who the one on the right is, but my guess is that it might be Dee? Just a wild guess since he's part of a group called MXYD consisting of him and Dee!, although I'm not too sure if they're still around. They only did one song.

Yes, they only did "Dancing Night -MYXD Hyper Teramix"- on "MINAMOTRANCE CORE!!" in 2006. I guess it was just a single time collaboration. Japanese seem to enjoy forming new units for almost everything.
