Gareth Emery Details

Gareth Emery

Gareth Emery is one of dance music’s most influential and innovative DJ producers, voted no.7 in DJ Mag’s ‘Top 100 DJs’ poll making him the UK’s highest ranked DJ, and one of the youngest DJs ever to crack the top ten. In 2010, he released his debut artist album ‘Northern Lights’ on his own label Garuda to stunning reactions from fans and critics alike, hitting no.1 on the US iTunes dance chart within hours of release.He also celebrated 100 episodes and four years of his award winning podcast, collaborated with Above & Beyond for the crossover international radio hit ‘On A Good Day (Metropolis)’, and penned the theme tune of the Global Gathering festival – whilst also finding time to play 130 shows, selling out clubs and rocking festivals in 40 countries to over 2 million people.

Only a select few dance music artists rise from obscurity to international recognition in under a year, but that’s exactly what 23 year old Southampton based DJ / producer Gareth Emery did in the last twelve months. Coming from a diverse musical background which encompassed classical piano training, jazz, and punk-rock along the way, Gareth initially caught the attention of the dance music scene in early 2002 with his first release. The track, titled ‘Nervous Breakdown 2002’, was a white label bootleg of The Shrink’s infamous classic which found its way onto BBC Radio 1 after being supported by a host of DJs including Eddie Halliwell, Guy Ornadel and Dave Pearce. It was immediately picked up by Nutrition for an official release and later featured on a number of compilations including the Godskitchen Direct mix album.
The track that truly put Gareth on the production map was GTR – ‘Mistral’. Never destined to become an anthem, it was produced entirely on a laptop computer over the course of a two week holiday in Provence. Nevertheless, the sole CDR that Gareth sent to Paul van Dyk caused such a storm when van Dyk debuted it live on radio from the Nature One Festival, that Five AM records wasted no time in signing it, helping it to become a truly global trance anthem.

Unequivocally supported by DJs including Tiesto, Ferry Corsten and Armin, it not only had immediate appeal but also passed the test of time, and could still be heard in superclubs a year after it was made. It later went on to feature on a large number of compilations, including Ferry Corsten’s Washington World Tour, Technics DJ Set volume 19, Total Trance on Moonshine USA, Graham Gold GG01, and was also significantly chosen by the newly crowned no.1 DJ in the world, Tiesto, to end CD1 of his critically acclaimed ‘Nyana’ album.
