Show from the Week of 2/4/2006
Gareth Emery (aka GTR) is recognised the world over as one of dance music’s most established young artists. Since being tipped by Mixmag in 2002, the 24 year old has become a regular feature at infamous clubs like Godskitchen, Slinky, The Gallery and Passion in his native UK, whilst holding an international residency in Vancouver and playing all over the globe. The remainder of his time is divided between producing genre-defining club tracks under his various guises and running Five AM, one of the UK’s coolest trance record labels.
Gareth first impacted on the global dance scene in 2002 with a succession of underground club hits, most notably the now legendary GTR – Mistral. Only the fourth track he had ever produced, Mistral became such an anthem for the likes of Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, Armin and Ferry Corsten that it can still be heard in clubs to this day. Moreover, it was testament to the power of the amateur producer and an inspiration to many that has since opened the floodgates for a new generation of young artists.
A classically trained musician, his passion for studio work remains prolific to this day with his tracks a mainstay in the sets of the biggest DJs in the world. His production history includes collaborations with artists like Lange, Solid Globe, Jon O’Bir and CERN with releases on a multitude of labels including A State of Trance, Lost Language, Multiply, Bonzai, and of course his native Five AM.
However, it’s when he’s behind the decks that the sound of Gareth Emery comes alive. His style is truly individual: a sublime blend of twisted beats and unrelenting groove that fuses trance with progressive, tribal and techno elements. Coupled with flawless technical ability and an emphasis on exclusive material and personal edits, his DJ sets are truly individual experiences that continue to set him apart from his peers.
A uniquely flexible DJ, he is one of a rare breed able to read the crowd in an instant and deliver the goods at any time of night, which is why The Gallery are as happy for him to play after Judge Jules as Godskitchen are for him to warm up for Paul van Dyk. Moreover, the Gareth Emery sound appeals to followers of many styles of dance music, transcending the bitter genre politics that often dog the scene and bringing back faith that trance can be cool to even the most hardened cynics.
Gabriel and Dresden
San Francisco local hero’s Gabriel & Dresden have become one of the most influential producers of this year. Currently working on writing and producing their artist album and touring the world as DJ’s, G&D rock it like no other by playing truly unique sets packed with their own productions and premiering upcoming tracks from their new record. As producers, DJ's and remixers, Josh Gabriel and Dave Dresden are chart toppers. Whether they're creating dance tracks for Dido, Dave Gahan or Sarah McLachlan, the duo knows how to spin a record to #1. Between mixing the soundtrack to the FX drama “Nip/Tuck,” debuting their double mix CD "Bloom," and releasing tracks on their underground label Organized Nature, Gabriel & Dresden have a lot to work with when they go into a club for a night of heavy rotation. You may also know them from their massively successful side projects, Motorcycle and Andain and collaborations with Armin Van Buuren and Marcus Schulz.
Gabriel & Dresden met at the Winter Music Conference in 2001, when Josh Gabriel was giving out the white label of his first track “Wave 3” and Dave Dresden was scouting new music for Pete Tong. Dresden loved the track, and two weeks later it got played on Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show. Tong soon offered Dresden the opportunity to remix New Order’s track, “Someone Like You” and Gabriel was tapped to work on the remix. Three years later the duo have produced 40 remixes, 10 original tracks, and have a world wide hit as Motorcycle which spent three weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts. Dresden also produces under the name Attention Deficit, and Gabriel writes and produces his own tracks, and has had two acclaimed singles as a producer and member of the group, Andain.
Both Gabriel and Dresden have been involved in music since they started their professional careers. Gabriel began writing and producing music after getting his first synthesizer in 1981. He eventually incorporated the computer into his music making with the addition of his trusty Mac Plus. Gabriel obtained a BFA degree in composition from California Institute of the Arts University and studied at the Institute of Sonology in Den Hague, The Netherlands. He then worked in various post-production studios, on projects for clients such as Sony, Disney, Sega and Oddworld. Gabriel moved on to create Mixmanâ music software and acted as co-founder of the company Mixman Technologies Inc. for 8 years. Dresden’s impressive career includes DJing for the past 15 years, while holding various high profile music industry jobs such as writer for artist interviews and music reviews, and driving A&R for Promo Only. Dresden has compiled mix CD’s and compilations for several record labels, scouted for Pete Tong, has been a radio DJ and music director for both Internet and radio stations with a world wide listening base.
The duo live and produce in San Francisco , California. Visit their website for Discography, DJ Tour dates and more information.
