Elise living her best life on a deserted beach in Ibiza 😬
.
Been here for over 10 years in the summer but this time we’re doing the winter... abandoned beaches, freezing cold mornings, and hardly a soul to be seen.
.
A beautiful tonic to the madness of LA. Time to start writing some island-inspired music now... 🎶

So, after a decade of drink, drugs, late nights, and children, I clearly look far worse than I did ten years ago, but after days of searching, I finally found pictures that suggest the opposite.
.
And the camera never lies.
.
So objective achieved. I officially look better than I did ten years ago.
.
(at least online. In real life I look haggard as fuck but who cares about real life when we have Instagram?) 😬

Happy fucking  #10yearchallenge @kattemery

Genuinely would love your HONEST feedback on the above.
.
The main reason we haven’t done @laserface_ in more cities / countries is ticket prices.
.
Many promoters will only throw a show if the ticket prices are super cheap, which makes sense. Cheap prices = more people.
.
Unfortunately Laserface is a really, really, REALLY fucking expensive show to put on with an insane list of equipment we need and a 25 person crew. In fact we’ve lost money on pretty much every one.
.
This has meant in some places we want to bring it, our options are:
.
1. Seriously skimp, bring about 1/3 of the gear and deliver a ‘Laserface Light’.
.
(Never. No fucking way)
.
2. Sell out and still lose a six-figure sum of money.
.
(If I were Jeff Bezos and DJing was just a hobby I’d gladly do this)
.
3. Charge a higher ticket price.
.
Often, we’ve been told “There’s no way people will pay $10 extra for a ticket in this town, however good the show”
.
But is that true?
.
I hate asking people to pay more for a show... and that’s why the Laserface shows so far have been the same price or cheaper than other shows in the same venue with way less production.
.
But to come to some new places, we’d have to change more.
.
So, your thoughts? Laserface? Worth the extra $10 / £10 / €10? Or nah?
.
Be honest, I won’t be offended 😬

Slightly worse for wear, celebrating the end of a beautiful 2 hour back-to-back set with @AshWallbridge this New Year’s Eve in New York.

It’s been amazing working with this fucking legend on both our joint album (due March) and on the Garuda label which we co-own.

2019 IS THE YEAR OF THE GARUDA 🦅 ❤️🙏

BOOM. My 7 hour  #openxclose set from New York on NYE is now online 😵
.
It includes a 2h back-to-back with @ashwallbridge which includes all manner of Garuda exclusives.... plus some rather dubious mic action in the last ten minutes when the, ahem, celebrations had clearly got the better of me 🥂
.
But it’s mostly pretty damn tight.
.
Available on my Soundcloud. Link in bio.
.
Happy New Year 🔥

Let’s talk about failure.
.
Failure provides your best lessons.
.
2018 in my professional life I had both massive successes and failures.
.
Now, usually on Insta, most people just talk about their wins and airbrush out anything else.
.
But fuck that.
.
Unless you review where you failed, you will repeat the same mistakes. So that’s where I look when reviewing a year.
.
If you’re wondering, the biggest one for me was the CVNT5 TV show. Fucking hell. I can honestly say I’ve never worked so hard on something to have it flop. Two years of writing, acting, editing… for a show that basically nobody got to see due to a distribution nightmare. Rough.
.
However, I learnt so much. Those lessons will serve me well.
.
And there were, of course, big fucking wins too.
.
The Laserface shows @nicelasers and I did, including my biggest ever solo show to date. My records with @emmahewittofficial and @evanhenzi . Finally finishing my collaborative album with @AshWallbridge. Relaunching @garudamusic with Ash as a co-owner.
.
All said and done, lots to be grateful for.
.
I’m grateful for the wins.
.
I’m just as grateful for the lessons.
.
And I’m grateful that I was surrounded by great people for it all, and supported by all of you.
.
Happy 2019. Go and fucking crush it.
.

Seven hour set last night.
.
Madness.
.
Longest I’ve ever played (the only other 7h was at Sankeys in Manchester in 2011).
.
The mad thing about last night was it still looked like this at 4am.
.
New Year can be a washout after midnight. People usually go too hard to early and by 1am it’s dying out... and frankly I was expecting the last hour to be a proper graveyard shift. However that didn’t happen at all.
.
New York you did yourselves proud. What a city. What people. Amazing 🙏
.
Saving Light for the NYE moment. Yep, not very original but a beautiful moment and we timed the drop bang on midnight to the second... so I’d say that was a job well done even though the confetti and co2 didn’t work 😬
.
Big love to @emmahewittofficial @ashwallbridge @jonathanmendelsohn for sharing the stage with me, and @nicelasers @kassyruimy @stevencunniffe for hard as fuck work behind the scenes..
.
Oh and WE RECORDED IT TOO 🔥🔥🔥
.
Happy New Year 🎊🎆

Happy New Year and thank you for the love & support in 2018.
.
I planned to post some 2018 reflections like everyone else but some idiot (me) decided to book a 7 hour set in New York so planning that shit is taking up all my time 😬
.
After that I’m fucking off to Ibiza to reflect on the year and if anything insightful comes to mind I’ll let you know 😉
.
Have a great night whatever you’re doing.

True story...when I had a great show, I used to save my playlist so I could repeat the set again.
.
But it never worked.
.
The exact set that went so well in LA would bomb in NY.
.
The killer set in Manchester wouldn’t work in London.
.
And I realized, a great set is much more than the tunes.
.
It’s a shared moment that only exists in that point in time between the crowd and DJ. You can’t repeat it.
.
So now: when I have a good show, I accept it was a moment in time. And the moment I walk off stage, the moment is over, and that’s ok.
.
The next night, I’ll be in another city and they’ll have their own moment. Their own story.
.
This maybe is a metaphor for something about life itself but I’m not smart enough to figure out what. If you work it out, let me know. Otherwise, it’s just a reason why DJs shouldn’t play the same sets too much 😬

It includes a 2h back-to-back with @ashwallbridge which includes all manner of Garuda exclusives.... plus some rather dubious mic action in the last ten minutes when the, ahem, celebrations had clearly got the better of me 🥂
.
But it’s mostly pretty damn tight.

Available on my Soundcloud. Link in bio.

Happy New Year 🔥

Let’s talk about failure.
.
Failure provides your best lessons.
.
2018 in my professional life I had both massive successes and failures.
.
Now, usually on Insta, most people just talk about their wins and airbrush out anything else.
.
But fuck that.
.
Unless you review where you failed, you will repeat the same mistakes. So that’s where I look when reviewing a year.
.
If you’re wondering, the biggest one for me was the CVNT5 TV show. Fucking hell. I can honestly say I’ve never worked so hard on something to have it flop. Two years of writing, acting, editing… for a show that basically nobody got to see due to a distribution nightmare. Rough.
.
However, I learnt so much. Those lessons will serve me well.
.
And there were, of course, big fucking wins too.
.
The Laserface shows @nicelasers and I did, including my biggest ever solo show to date. My records with @emmahewittofficial and @evanhenzi . Finally finishing my collaborative album with @AshWallbridge. Relaunching @garudamusic with Ash as a co-owner.
.
All said and done, lots to be grateful for.
.
I’m grateful for the wins.
.
I’m just as grateful for the lessons.
.
And I’m grateful that I was surrounded by great people for it all, and supported by all of you.
.
Happy 2019. Go and fucking crush it.
.

Seven hour set last night.
.
Madness.
.
Longest I’ve ever played (the only other 7h was at Sankeys in Manchester in 2011).
.
The mad thing about last night was it still looked like this at 4am.
.
New Year can be a washout after midnight. People usually go too hard to early and by 1am it’s dying out... and frankly I was expecting the last hour to be a proper graveyard shift. However that didn’t happen at all.
.
New York you did yourselves proud. What a city. What people. Amazing 🙏
.
Saving Light for the NYE moment. Yep, not very original but a beautiful moment and we timed the drop bang on midnight to the second... so I’d say that was a job well done even though the confetti and co2 didn’t work 😬
.
Big love to @emmahewittofficial @ashwallbridge @jonathanmendelsohn for sharing the stage with me, and @nicelasers @kassyruimy @stevencunniffe for hard as fuck work behind the scenes..
.
Oh and WE RECORDED IT TOO 🔥🔥🔥
.
Happy New Year 🎊🎆

Happy New Year and thank you for the love & support in 2018.
.
I planned to post some 2018 reflections like everyone else but some idiot (me) decided to book a 7 hour set in New York so planning that shit is taking up all my time 😬
.
After that I’m fucking off to Ibiza to reflect on the year and if anything insightful comes to mind I’ll let you know 😉
.
Have a great night whatever you’re doing.

True story...when I had a great show, I used to save my playlist so I could repeat the set again.
.
But it never worked.
.
The exact set that went so well in LA would bomb in NY.
.
The killer set in Manchester wouldn’t work in London.
.
And I realized, a great set is much more than the tunes.
.
It’s a shared moment that only exists in that point in time between the crowd and DJ. You can’t repeat it.
.
So now: when I have a good show, I accept it was a moment in time. And the moment I walk off stage, the moment is over, and that’s ok.
.
The next night, I’ll be in another city and they’ll have their own moment. Their own story.
.
This maybe is a metaphor for something about life itself but I’m not smart enough to figure out what. If you work it out, let me know. Otherwise, it’s just a reason why DJs shouldn’t play the same sets too much 😬

Please watch this very touching video from my friend and Omnia resident @marketeson about homelessness in Las Vegas.

Hope some of you consider doing something - however small - for those less fortunate than us this holiday season. Gaz x

I’ve lived in Las Vegas for just over 5 years now and one thing that really struck me was the sheer number of homeless people I would see every single day; especially when it is brutally hot in the middle of the desert summer.
.
Most people just see the glitz, the glam, the flashing lights of the strip & have no idea that this other side of everyone’s favourite holiday destination even exists.
.
I just wanted to do *something* to try & help people less fortunate than myself, & it was a post from @blackjaguarwhitetiger which said “if you have a spare backpack in the house, fill it up with water & snacks & give it to the homeless” which actually spurred me into action.
.
It was the most grounding, eye-opening, saddening but also heart-warming experience I think I’ve ever had; it makes me shiver to just think back at the light in their eyes when someone comes to their aid. Most of the time we look away when we see someone in need, or assume someone else will help them. Not any more.
.
PLEASE consider doing the same, in whatever capacity you can, by SHARING this video with your friends, family - to raise awareness & pack a bag of your own. What this World needs the most, is more compassion. 💜

Following CVNT5 retirement, Ashley insisted we never use this picture... but it’s too fucking hilarious not to post at least once.

Tempted to set a rule that he can’t get in the venue in New York for  #NYE unless he wears this outfit 😂.

So grateful for the time spent with @kattemery and these little ones this Xmas.

Tomorrow, I go back to work and my normal disciplined self will return... so I am going to enjoy my last day of watching Office reruns and eating chocolate for breakfast 😵
.
PS - my NYE show schedule looks like this. Looking forward to seeing you all.

DEC28: San Francisco

Respect to everyone working today
.
Before I did this job, Boxing Day (Dec 26) used to be my most profitable day of the year.
.
I was a furniture salesman at a long-defunct UK version of IKEA called MFI. I’d spend Xmas totally sober, knowing  I’d be spending the next day selling the fuck out of flat pack furniture to half of Suburban England. Most of it probably fell apart but it was actually an awesome job and I loved every minute.
.
Anyway, I’m not working today but we’re having our own Boxing Day Sale and 17 year old me wouldn’t forgive current me if I didn’t tell you about it.
.
All Laserface and GE swag, 25% off. It’s excellent merch, will look better on you than it does on me, and unlike the furniture I sold at 17 it won’t fall apart a week later (if it does, you know where to find me) 😑

Fun fact: Lasers only really look good from one direction, so for the first Laserface shows I couldn’t see a fucking thing.
.
After complaining to @nicelasers about this, he put some lasers at the back of the room pointing at me, which improved my view and also made it much more immersive for the crowd.
.
On this show I also had a little screen showing the view from the dance floor (you can see it on the right if you look closely) which was cool as fuck.

One of my favorite ever shots of a show of mine from New York.
.
A good show, no doubt, but you know what it wasn’t?
.
It wasn’t a fucking SEVEN HOUR set.
.
Speaking of 7 hour sets (did you see what I did there) my  #OpenXClose warehouse party is shaping up to be fucking nuts.
.
As well as 7 hours of me, we’ve got @ashwallbridge @emmahewittofficial and @jonathanmendelsohn joining me on the night 🔥🔥🔥.
.
If you don’t have anything good planned for  #NYE , fly to  #NYC and spend it with us 🍾.

Been listening to trance for 20 years. It’s a beautifully varied genre. It comes in many different shapes and sizes. Fast, slow, melodic, dark, commercial, underground, etc.
.
This variation is why I fucking love it.
.
The fact our genre isn’t afraid to introduce new styles and change with the times.
.
In fact, if trance hadn’t evolved, it would have died out a long time ago.
.
Anyway, it’s a shame when I see fans of trance music getting so bitter over the definition of the genre. Who gives a shit? We ain’t the biggest style of dance music.... shouldn’t we be sticking together?
.
Nobody gets to define it but you and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise 😬🙏🔥.
