Gareth Emery is an English electronic dance music producer and DJ. Known for his distinctive sound, English DJ and producer Gareth Emery’s music has been labeled as house, progressive, trance, and trouse, but he disregards these titles, instead calling what he does “simples.” According to Emery, he simply plays good records without concern over genre. Emery was first introduced to the electronic music scene when Judge Jules played his remix of the Shrink’s track “Nervous Breakdown” over BBC Radio 1 while airing live from Mardi Gras in 2002. But it wasn’t until his third release “Mistral” that he found his true breakout. Created using nothing but a laptop computer, the track was premiered over the radio by Paul van Dyk, and Emery quickly gained the attention of scene leaders such as Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, and Ferry Corsten. The track was highly praised by publications such as Mixmag, DJ Mag, and Muzik.
Gareth Emery, also known as GTR, Cupa, Digital Blues, Rue de Gar, and Runaway, is an English DJ and producer with an open-minded and fuss-free approach to spinning and producing several styles of electronic dance music. Known overground since 2002, when his remix of the Shrink’s “Nervous Breakdown” was aired on BBC Radio 1, he made more of a name for himself later in the year with his own “Mistral,” released on his and Alexis Hooper’s Five AM label under the name GTR.
