Tag Archive: Gareth Emery



You gotta love these live extended sets because they really show what a DJ can do on the tables. On Boxing day of 2011, Gareth Emery played a 6 hour set at The Warehouse Project in Manchester, England, which is the city he currently works out of. This set is impressively long, however it seems like Gareth has been bitten by the popularity bug. While his performance is fun to listen to, there aren’t many too many new or unreleased tracks in here. I guess you have to spin all of the popular hits in a long set like this, but I wish he played with more originality like he used to towards the beginning of his career. However, this mix still has that signature Gareth Emery feel to it, and I do appreciate the selection of several techy tracks which balance with the electro nicely. There are plenty of tracks off his Garuda label, including work by Garuda artists Ben Gold, Craig Connelly, and Tritonal. There are also many mashups in here, with my favorite being the Super8 & Tab Helektra mashup of their own productions Elektra and Helsinki Scorchin. This recording is a great representation of Gareth’s work in 2011, but if you are still yearning for more from Mr. GTR, make sure you also check out episode 165 of his podcast for his  2011 year-mix.

Trance Around the World 400


Say what you will about these three guys, it is hard to deny the loyalty they have to their fans. The connection Above & Beyond have with their supporters is one of the closest in this industry, and you can certainly feel that in their live performances. Fans of theirs return the love 200%, and this has made the Anjunabeats label one of the major players in the global trance scene. To celebrate the 400th episode of their Trance Around the World radioshow, Tony, Jono, and Paavo put on a great party at the Forum de Beyrouth in Lebanon. Alongside them played other DJs including Jaytech, Kyau & Albert, Gareth Emery, and Mat Zo. All of the performers played solid mixes, however the sets by Mat Zo and Kyau & Albert really stood out for me. Mat Zo’s was the most unique, and I love the variety of tracks that he played. Kyau & Albert’s set had the best flow, and I was pretty impressed with their tracklist as they mixed a good ratio of old and new songs. If anybody can figure out what song track 5 is, please let me know because it is a wicked track. Jaytech put on a standard but solid Anjunadeep set, and Above & Beyond also played up to their usual standards. I was a little disappointed with Gareth’s mix (too much electro for me), although he did play some sick mashups for all the party-goers in the audience. Overall the music from this party is comparable to that from TATW 350; there aren’t many surprises if you follow these artists consistently. Check out all 8 hours of the show below, which includes artist interviews and Twitter shout-outs strewn throughout the event.

It has been 2 years since the last Sound of Garuda compilation album, so let’s see what Gareth has in store for us with Chapter 2 of this series. While the 2009 album was mainly a retrospective mix CD, this new one contains completely fresh tracks.The format has also been shortened down to 1 CD, which is more appropriate considering the content. Several of these songs fit in perfectly with the Garuda sound, including Michael Jay Parker’s Canberra, Day Break by Ben Gold and Jonas Stenberg, and of course the two collaborations with Gareth Emery. Mansion and Flash are certainly highlights of this album, but Triarchy’s Replication is the clear winner for me. I’m not a big fan of the new Filo & Peri song, however the Daniel Kandi remix of the other vocal track in this album is solid. If you missed out on the first album, click out the link below the music. Here is what Gareth has to say about his new compilation:

This year, I feel our little label really has gone from strength to strength, which is why for the first time ever I’ve been able to put together an album full of totally exclusive, never-before-heard tracks, all of which were produced specifically for this project. I’m happy to feature many new artists who are appearing on Garuda for the first time, as well as some more familiar names, and of course, there are also several new tracks by me on the album, written in collaboration with two of the UK’s finest young producers: Ben Gold and Ashley Wallbridge.

I’d like to briefly thank everyone involved in the project: the artists, our partners Be Yourself Music, our fantastic Garuda team, and of course, the army of fans throughout the world keeping the Garuda sound alive week in, week out.

Thank you for supporting our music and I hope you enjoy it.

Super8 & Tab – Empire Remixed


My two favorite producers from Finland are back with a remixed version of their debut artist album. This time around they received the help of 13 other artists, many of whom are affiliated with the Anjunabeats label. All of the songs from the Empire album have been reworked, and the results are pretty decent. My favorite track is the Protoculture remix of Black is the New Yellow. The original version is dope, but Nate Raubenheimer has added a wicked bassline to his interpretation of the song. The Maor Levi remix of Slow to Learn is also pretty good, as well as the 4 Strings remix of Bliss. A few of these remixes were already previously released, such as Rank 1’s remix of My Enemy, the Mike Shiver remix of Empire, and the 7 Skies remix of Mercy, so there wasn’t an overabundance of new material on this CD. I do appreciate the MRSA (aka Mat Zo) drum and bass version of Perfect Day, as it adds an interesting touch to the album. Overall this is a well done remix album with good variety of sound. If you loved the original Empire, you will probably like this one. The iTunes version of this release includes a bonus DJ mix of all of these songs, but I did not purchase that so the songs are uploaded individually below. Also check out the original album linked at the bottom of the post.

Gareth Emery Northern Lights Re-Lit


Here is the remixed version of Gareth Emery’s debut artist album. All 12 songs from the original album are featured in this one after being reworked by several notable producers. The original Northern Lights album showed off the diversity of Gareth’s sound, and this remix version pretty much expands on that with the contrasting styles of these remixers. The tracklist has been rearranged according to the energy of these redrawn tracks, which sets up Gareth beautifully for a corresponding DJ mix. The album begins with the Ashley Wallbridge remix of Arrival, and things begin to heat up on the progressive side with the help of Arty, Hardwell, and Beltek. Next up is Too Dark Tonight, which is one of the songs that received the biggest overhaul, morphing from a down-tempo inclination into a high energy banger in the form of a JOC remix. Global and Into the Light are remixed tastefully by Jordan Suckley and Lange, while Citadel gets an alternate, revised bassline by Super8 & Tab. The last three tracks in the mix are rightfully uplifting, and they feature the work of some well established big guns in this epic trance genre. As far as remix albums go, this one gets the job done right with a great selection of remixers. I have uploaded track #13, the DJ mix of all these songs, check it out below.

Gareth Emery – Northern Lights


Ok, maybe I lied when I said there were only two trance-artist albums I was looking forward to this year. There were actually four of them, and this is one that actually lived up to my expectations. It took me a few listens to really get into it, but I definitely found some quality tunes along with a great deal of potential for some nice remixes down the road. This album is only the second CD released on Gareth’s Garuda label, with the first being The Sound of Garuda released last year. Nevertheless, a debut artist album always calls for a celebration, and Gareth certainly has something up his sleeve planned for his fans. To ceremonialize this album’s release, Gareth and Digital Society have joined forces to throw the Northern Lights Concert at the O2 Academy in Leeds, England on October 8th of this year. Gareth will be playing a special 4 hour set (his longest set to date in Europe), complete with live vocalists and tons of special effects. The night will also feature guest DJ sets by Orkidea (a stand-alone legend), Sean Tyas, Ben Gold, Greg Downey, and Mark Eteson. This formula for album launch parties has seemed to work so well with many other producers, so why shouldn’t Gareth join in on the fun? It will be a great night for trance music as the lucky crowd gets to celebrate Gareth’s accomplishment with him. Now onto the CD review…

As I mentioned before, it did take me a few listens before I really immersed myself in the album. The CD opens up with a great collaboration with Jerome Isma-Ae on the intro track, and then it moves into a classic-Gareth style track titled El Segundo, complete with stuttering vocals and a solid bassline. Gareth features a few vocalists on his CD, including Lucy Sanders, Mark Frisch, and even his own sister, Roxanne Emery. The track with his sister (Too Dark Tonight) is very raw, with minimal productions and nice piano work, which I think is a great foundation for a killer remix. Another surprise song is Arrival, which features the Jazz-funk band Brute Force. You can hear their influence through what sounds like some sort of end-blown flute, possibly made out of wood or bamboo. You have probably heard one of the two Lucy Saunders  tracks on this album, so you already know how popular Sanctuary has become. However I actually like the other Lucy Saunders song, titled Fight the Sunrise, a little bit more due to the better lyrics and its use of the piano. Being a piano player myself, I always appreciate tracks which incorporate some nice keyboard work, and Gareth’s classical training really shines in this one. My favorites tracks are Full Tilt and Citadel, which are both 100% Emery and pretty much ready to do some destruction on the dance-floor. I also enjoyed his collaboration with Activa on All Is Now, as Activa piggybacks his harder style with Gareth’s smooth flows. Overall the end product here is a nice mix of vocal and non-vocal tracks. Gareth does a great job of expanding his sound range while keeping his signature style in place. The album is officially released today, so go grab your copy from Garuda. The digital version contains 4 bonus tracks, including a nice one with Emma Hewitt. I have uploaded the entire CD in one long mix to share with you, check it out below:

Weekend Sendoff #1


Happy Friday everyone… this week has been pretty killer work-wise for me, so it will be nice to unwind for the next two days. I am considering doing something like this every Friday where I share some recent goodies I have picked up. How does the weekend sendoff sound? It’s like a top 5 or top 10 tracks of the week kinda thing, or maybe even a set of the week. I guess I’ll think it over and you will find out next Friday. Anyway, here are some random tracks which have been keeping me going… hopefully they start your weekend off right!

Sander van Doorn – Daddy Rock (Live at Club Fluxx, San Diego)
I recorded this at a local club back in April but had no idea what the track was. Found out last week that it’s actually Sander’s new song, so this video has been revived. Watch it in HD for better quality.

Hammer & Bennett – Language (Phynn Remix)
I first heard this track this morning and was pretty impressed. There aren’t many tracks that can get me pumped up on the drive to work, but this one really did it for me. The original came out a few years ago, but Phynn does a great job on the remix.


Pobsky – Final Cloud (Original Mix)

Gotta love the lead in this track, it’s definitely one of the grooviest songs at the moment.

Nick Sentience – Kinetic (Original Mix)
I have been very happy with the re-emergence of Nick Sentience, and this track is a great reason why. The bassline is hard as fuck and it sounds great on a loud system. Check out his other track Nocturnal which was released on the same EP a few days ago.

Ferry Tayle feat. Stephan R – Desert Storm
Don’t worry guys, I have not forget my melodic trance roots. This one is off Ferry Tayle’s new album, Carnet de Vol, which will be out soon.

Mat Zo – Land of the Free (Original Mix)
Here’s the latest from youngin’ Matan Zohar. The track is pretty techy and parts of it remind me of DJ Observer and Daniel Heatcliff’s Cowabunga.

Ashley Wallbridge – Smoke (Original Mix)
This is the latest from Ashley Wallbridge (who is not a girl I must add). It was released about 4 days ago on AVA recordings along with the track Rhythm. It’s definitely got that Wallbridge sound to it, and I’m sure you will be hearing it a lot in the future.

Grube & Hovsepian – Conviction (Skytech Stadium Remix)
This one’s a gem of a track with a great melody in the middle. It was released in the middle of July on Club Elite.

Gareth Emery – Global (Markus Schulz Big Room Reconstruction)
I know many of you are feelin Gareth’s new tune Sanctuary, but I think this one is much better. Add Markus’ editing skills and the song improves even more.

Markus Schulz – Perception feat. Justine Suissa (Super 8 & Tab Remix)
I’ll leave you guys with this one, which has seen many, many plays on my CDJ. I know I posted it up last week too, but it’s really too good to forget.


Mornin’ ladies and gents, it’s a lovely Thursday morning it’s also time for this week’s throwback. Here’s a promo mix by Gareth Emery that came out when I was only 18 years old and still in high school. Back then, GTR was just making a name for himself as an up-and-coming artist. This mix was obtained from tranceaddict, where Gareth used to post as Gaz@influential. It is filled with a lot of hit songs at the time, such as Sunrise At the Palamos, Hibernation, Remember, and Eye of Horus. You can also hear some earlier work by a few young producers such as Plastic Angel, Shane 54, Aly & Fila, Paavo, and the rest of the OceanLab crew. Unfortunately Gareth doesn’t include his breakout track Mistral in this mix, but he does incorporate his remix of a superb Nova track. Packed from start to finish with 70 minutes of trance-goodness, this is one throwback mix you don’t want to overlook. At the bottom of the page are some magazine clips (taken from his website) showing Gareth’s emergence in 2002/2003.

ASOT 450 Bratislava

Here are the sets from the ASOT 450 Day 4 party in the capital city of Slovakia, Bratislava. It’s hard to say which one is my favorite because a lot of these artists really brought their A game. Ashley Wallbridge was a good choice by Armin to open up the night, and Schossow closed out the night with a lot of nice techy songs. W&W and MS54 definitely threw down some pretty hard tracks, while Dash Berlin and Kandi had the most melodic tunes. If anyone can help out with missing track ID’s (especially for the W&W set), that would be great. Let me know if you would like any of these mixes and I can send you a quick download link.
