Gareth Emery new album northern lights

Ok, so one of our contributors once had a dig at Emery over his God-like bio, but God or not, Emery is is a rising star in dance music and one of Trance’s finest producers. Gareth Emery has his production sound locked, and while the popularity surrounding him has reached explosive proportions over the last year, the young Brit has been composing his debut full length album; “Northern Lights”. Between his extraordinary tour duties this comes across as a seemingly remarkable achievement.

While each track on the much-anticipated long player possesses its own unique structure the entire album has the beating heart of harmony collected from his many experiences at some of the world’s biggest clubs and festivals. Instead of committing himself to a one dimensional side of electronic music, his talent could only have been fashioned by a sheer diversity of sounds and polished production qualities; eliciting excited and inspiring Trance moments with deep warm compositions sometimes even complimented with classical influences.

Having been responsible for numerous sellouts at the world’s no.1 club Sankeys, Manchester; Gareth Emery and Garuda join forces with one of the UK’s newest bearers of the Trance sound, Digital Society for an epic Arena show at the stunning O2 Academy in Leeds alongside “Sanctuary” remixer and crowd favorite Sean Tyas. Kick starting his worldwide album tour in remarkable fashion, Gareth Emery’s unique four house DJ and Live set combination at the O2 Academy Leeds will be memorably captured on film and come complete with a wealth of exclusive features including next generation LEDs, CO2 cannons, dancers and of course stunning sound.

Release date: 23rd September 2010

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
