A classically trained musician, Gareth Emery's career ascent over the past five years has been impressively and deservedly rapid. Producing gripping, club-facing records, whilst also pioneering one of the first and most successful EDM podcasts: The Gareth Emery Podcast which has won countless awards and has over half a million subscribers. His musical style is a fierce blend of house, trance and electro. Favoring musical diversity over stifling genre norms, the Marquee Las Vegas resident is always pushing the boundaries of the scene. His label Garuda is a hot bed of fresh talent , hosting sell-out nights across the world, from Miami Music Week to the UK’s Warehouse Project. With a wave of Beatport #1 hits under his belt this year including Concrete Angel, Tokyo and The Saga, his second artist album DRIVE, set for a 2014 release, looks to be as ground-breaking as his first.
It’s fair to say that Pete Tong’s history is intertwined with the history of acid house and electronic music itself. His career mirrors the story of dance music over the last 25 years. A true renaissance man, Pete has never been about one thing and 2011 represents a significant milestone. The year has seen Radio 1 hold a special 12 hour takeover on the station celebrating Pete’s 20 years on their airwaves, in March he held his Miami Pool Party (with Hawtin, Luciano, Joris Voorn, Riva Starr and others), and he’s released two new compilations, Future Underground, (mixed alongside Riva Starr) and All Gone Ibiza ’11 (mixed alongside Felix Da Housecat) on Defected.
His announcement about returning to Pacha, Ibiza this summer with Pure Pacha presents All Gone Pete Tong has quickly become the biggest story of Ibiza 2011 – with guests including Seal, Aloe Blacc, Dev, Yasmin, 2ManyDjs, Gui Boratto, Derrick Carter, Laurent Garnier (L.B.S), Guy Gerber, Calvin Harris, Felix Da Housecat, Paul Kalkbrenner, Steve Lawler, Laidback Luke, Paul Oakenfold, Stacey Pullen, and many more. Over coming months he’ll split his time between UK, Ibiza and Vegas where a 6 month Residency at Wynn is in full flow!
There's still plenty more to be announced for this show, so keep tuned.
