The original ‘Northern Lights’ by DJ Mag world no.7 Gareth Emery was one of dance music’s hottest debut albums of 2010, hitting no.1 in the US iTunes Dance chart within hours of release and featuring ‘Sanctuary’, the undisputed trance anthem of the summer.

Now the album returns with a new twist: ‘Northern Lights Re-Lit’, where Gareth has handpicked a selection of his favourite producers to remix all twelve tracks from the album.

After a very limited promotional mail-out, support from A-list DJs has already been overwhelming, helping generate a massive buzz around the release from industry and fans alike. Tiesto’s already well behind the stunning remix of the Jerome Isma-Ae collaboration ‘Stars’ by Dutch house master Hardwell, Armin van Buuren is all over both the John O’Callaghan remix of ‘Too Dark Tonight’ and the Jorn van Deynhoven remix of ‘All Is Now’, whereas Above & Beyond and Markus Schulz have been championing Ashley Wallbridge’s epic progressive house remix of ‘Arrival’.

To further the celebrations, release parties for the album will be taking place across the world, including a 7-hour set from Gareth at Sankeys in Manchester on the day of release (sold out five weeks in advance), plus Dream in Miami during Ultra Week and the third Northern Lights Concert in Los Angles in April.

In short, it’s set to be another groundbreaking release from Gareth Emery on his label Garuda, further cementing it’s reputation as one of the most forward thinking boutique labels around.

‘Northern Lights Re-Lit’ will be available on CD and digital download from 18th March 2011. Both CD and digital editions will feature a seamlessly blended DJ mix, whilst the digital edition will also include individual versions of every track on the album.

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
