How about some great sounds from a true mixmaster?
Born in Southampton, but now based in Manchester, England, Gareth Emery is a producer and DJ of trance music. He comes from a diverse musical background that includes classical piano training, jazz, and a little punk rock. Emery has emerged in the last few years as one of the world's major trance DJs. Since entering the DJ Mag Top 100 poll at no.#34 in 2006, he has climbed every year since being ranked #31 in the 2007 poll, #23 in the 2008 poll, and entering the top 10 in 2009 at #9. He is widely tipped to become one of the next global stars of trance music, with both Paul van Dyk and Ferry Corsten naming him as a future star in their DJ Mag Top 100 interviews in 2006/2007.
I just love the sounds. Totally awesome. If you are even a slight fan of trance you must get this album.
Sanctuary - featuring Lucy Saunders
Official video of 'Sanctuary', the first single from Gareth Emery's debut album 'Northern Lights', due for release in September.
Northern Lights is Gareth's debut album, released on his own label Garuda, and is without a doubt the most anticipated debut album for years in the world of trance. With ten brand new tracks, including Sanctuary the undisputed vocal anthem of the summer), Northern Lights is full of sublime cuts ranging from progressive house to full on trance, staying true to the genre-defying sound that has made Gareth so popular in recent years
