When Topher Jones released his hit single ‘Brohammer‘, it not only took everyone by surprise, it eventually became one of the best tracks of 2012. The right people noticed. So much so that when Gareth Emery wanted to have his hit song ‘The Saga‘ remixed, he specifically asked for Topher Jones. Topher was only too happy to oblige the English legend.
It seems that Gareth Emery has quite the eye for spotting talent as well. Topher’s remix isn’t just spectacular, it surpasses the original. Whereas the original mix’s drop seems forced and anti-climactic, the remix’s drop meshes with the song. Topher’s version captures the essence of the track. In fact, if someone were to tell you to compare both versions and guess which one was which, you’d guess that Topher’s was the original 9 times out of 10. Topher’s career is just getting started; it’ll be interesting to see what he has in store this year.
Gareth Emery – The Saga (Topher Jones Remix)
The English superstar DJ and producer Gareth Emery has teamed up with fellow Englishman Ashley Wallbridge to release their new track ‘DUI’. This new single has awesome trance and melodic feel we are so used to from both producers and it is sure to be climbing the musical charts in no time. We look forward to many more collaborations between the two powerhouse DJs. Be sure to tune into Emery’s ’Gareth Emery Presents’ on the SiriusXM channel Electric Area 5pm ET Fridays with a repeat at 8pm ET Tuesdays.
British trance veteran Lange is back with the beautifully uplifting track â€˜We Are Lucky Peopleâ€™, officially released yesterday on Lange Recordings. Reverting back to his roots, â€˜We Are Lucky Peopleâ€™ is a melodious, all instrumental piece with Langeâ€™s signature gradual builds and warm, progressive sound.
Garuda label boss Gareth Emery tore up the beach at Governors Island in August, and he is returning to NYC tomorrow to get behind the decks at midtown club Lavo. It would certainly behoove you to check out what a lifelong love of trance has done towards shaping Emery into one of the more dynamic and engaging performers out there right now. Dare his sets even be described as entrancing, because that’s certainly what they are.
For your Trance Tuesday viewing pleasure, a hauntingly beautiful video for Lange’s â€˜Crossroads,â€™ which features the equally etheral vocals of Stine Grove. Officially released in June, this track has already been featured in ‘Armin Van Buuren presents – A State of Trance Episode 571‘ and ‘The Gareth Emery Podcast 195‘.
Besides, who doesnâ€™t love a music video with extraterrestrials and secret agent types?
So many things have been made right about the Governors Island summer series since the first shows back in June. Perhaps the ‘rightest’ move has been the absolutely stacked train of performers coming to grace the waterfront stage. Already this summer, amongst many others, Hardwell, Benny Benassi, Tritonal and Dash Berlin have stepped behind the decks, and next weekend brings a pretty legendary two days with John Digweed and Danny Tenaglia on Saturday, Aug. 11 and Thomas Gold and his drum line on Sunday.
This past Saturday, Garuda captain Gareth Emery brought his live show to the island, previously having broadcast performances from Miami and Manchester. Governors shows are unique in their format, bringing multiple DJs together for a marathon day of often diverse and riveting music. Gareth’s ensemble was no different, with support from Ben Gold, Blake Jarrell, Jermone Isma-Ae and Zack Roth. Honestly, if you’re a trance/trouse fan, there was no better way to be spending your Saturday. Being that it was live broadcast, there was no reason to miss it – also see below and read after the jump to catch up on everything that went down.
New York City has been chosen by Garuda master Gareth Emery as the next installment of his Live project, following a show in Miami and the massive 5 hour marathon on Boxing Day at The Warehouse Project in Manchester. The setting for this NY party will be idyllic Governors Island this coming Saturday, August 4, with a live audio and video broadcast for those sadly unable to attend.
Gareth is also bringing along a few chums to round out the bill, with support from Ben Gold, Blake Jarrell, Jermone Isma-Ae and Zack Roth. All of these guys will be there to tickle your trouse/trance fancies, as if Gareth weren’t already enough.
Thus – it behooves you to enter our contest to win a spot +1 at the party immediately. To enter, give us a shout on Twitter by saying:

In case you haven’t heard, THE MOTHAF%$IN SAGA CONTINUES.
Gareth Emery‘s newest track hits the right spots of melodic, hard hitting trance. Cooler and louder than his other hits like Concrete Angel and Sanctuary, this one’s a keeper. The video features some neat footage from the backstage of EDC NY, where he killed the A State of Trance Tent on Saturday.
Gareth has no upcoming shows in New York yet, but he will be touring the United Stages in June and does have a stop in Philadelphia.
First heard officially on Gareth Emery’s Podcast #173, but a staple of their sets since NYE at Pier 94, Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa’s newest collaboration ‘Apogee’ has it’s place firmly on the dance floor. Separately each Russian group is a force to be reckoned with, but together their production is simply a tornado in the club.
Like many of their tracks, ‘Apogee’ has the rhythmic repetition and hard hitting synth that makes it an instant banger. Seeing the tune dropped on crowds fuels nothing less than the most enthusiastic arm pumping and boogeying. When Swanky Tunes dropped ‘Apogee’ at Pacha this Saturday (review coming shortly!) there was nothing less than the most inspired support from those in attendance. Not only do club-goers love the track, but professionals from within the electronic dance community are showing support, including Steve Angello, Armin van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Gareth Emery. Not a shabby roster to have on your side in the least!
