Finishing records is, and always has been hard as fuck for me. For the uninitiated here’s how it goes. When you first write a killer melody or vocal, you fucking love it. Imagine hearing a great track, for the first time, and you’ve just fucking invented it out of thin air? Yes, the feeling is that good.
.
However, producing a track to a high standard literally requires thousands and thousands of listens.
.
You know when you overplay a track and ruin it for yourself? Like that, but on steroids. Times a thousand.
.
So months later the track is nearly done but you’re now bored to fucking tears with that killer melody. The baseline all of a sudden sounds wrong. You question every element of the track even if you loved them at first. You never want to hear it again.
.
I say, without exaggeration, every single track I’ve finished has had A Struggle like this. A moment when I wanted to give up making music. When I thought I wasn’t good enough. When I beat myself up because I was sure things couldn’t be this fucking hard for Rob Swire or Eric Prydz and maybe I was just in the wrong fucking job.
.
Yet I reminded myself that people hearing a track for the first time would love it like I did at first, and the prize of releasing a great record is worth a few hard days.
.
So I pushed past those demons and finished my tracks.
.
Not once, not twice, but hundreds of times.
.
It does not get any easier, I’m afraid. But, this is, however, what it takes, so now you know.
.
(I’ve just finished something new so the struggle is quite fresh in the memory)

Genuinely heartbroken to hear about @avicii.
.
He was such an inspiration to me (the melody in Lost was entirely inspired by his, much better and more original track “all you need is love”)
.
I didn’t know Tim well, but on the 4-5 times we hung out or shared a stage he was never anything other than gracious and lovely, even as he was becoming the biggest DJ in the world.
.
It’s utterly tragic that he should have had a whole life of making his incredible melodies for us all, and yet he’s gone less than 10 years after his career started.
.
We - the dance music industry - need to get better at taking care of our younger stars. Heavy touring is mentally and physically brutal, even when you’re used to it. I can’t even imagine being remotely ready for it when I was 18. There’s always more gigs, more tracks and more money but you only get one life. This is such a wake up call.
.
RIP Tim Berling and thanks for all the music you made. For a short time, it made all our worlds a little brighter xx 😢

In a world where everyone is constantly documenting every single moment of their life, it’s bizzarely satisfying to work on truly insane projects in total isolation 😎
.
I admit, my social media game when not on tour is weak as fuck. That’s cos I am so focused on smashing whatever the hell it is I am working on, and delivering something I can be proud of for the rest of my life, that I simply don’t want the distraction of documenting it via stories along the way or ruining the surprise of the announcement.
.
You will notice I almost never post what I am working on or similar because, I would rather let the results speak for themselves.
.
If you’re creating content and working on long projects, the current ‘standard wisdom’ is post all the time and document what you’re working on. But remember, there’s always another way 😎👌🎶

2000: “You realize getting a record signed when you have no contacts is impossible, right?”
.
2003: “You’re leaving work to pursue music full time? I hope your work will let you come back as your chances of making it are incredibly slim”
.
2006: “You’re a good DJ but you’ve been trying this for 3 years and you still make less than minimum wage and live at home with your parents. You tried, but it’s probably time to move on”
.
2018: “You’ll never sell out the Bill Graham”
.
(I could write these all day)
.
Listen, I fucking love being underestimated and you should too. It’s been the case my whole life. In fact, when someone tells me I can’t do something, it’s the fire I need to go ahead, prove them wrong, and shove it down their fucking throats.
.
Except, when it does, I never want to do that. Because when you achieve things you’re truly proud of, the people who didn’t believe in your are the last people on your mind. You’re not thinking about those who doubted you. You’re thinking about the incredible team who believed in you and the people who supported your vision (who are pictured here)
.
Point is, next time someone tries to talk your goals down, just laugh it off and use it as fire.
.
Just because they’ve given up, doesn’t mean you have to. Just because they’re bitter and thinks the world owes them doesn’t mean you need to feel that way.
.
Go out, work your fucking arse off, execute daily, and mad shit happens. I fucking promise you.

So this was last night... huge love to the incredible crowd who made it one of the best shows I’ve ever done, the rest of the line up, and our incredible team who worked longer and harder behind the scenes than us and and pulled it the fuck off. They deserve a few beers today.

Firstly, tomorrow’s show in SF is sold out - we’re all incredibly grateful for the chance to blow all your minds tomorrow night and are working tirelessly to repay your faith in us at the biggest headline show I’ve even done.
.
Secondly, to celebrate we’re going to shoot a music video for a brand new song of mine at the show and you have the opportunity of being in it. If you’re coming to the show, and want to get involved, send us an email and one of the crew will try to get you in. Gaz x

Finishing records is, and always has been hard as fuck for me. For the uninitiated here’s how it goes. When you first write a killer melody or vocal, you fucking love it. Imagine hearing a great track, for the first time, and you’ve just fucking invented it out of thin air? Yes, the feeling is that good.
.
However, producing a track to a high standard literally requires thousands and thousands of listens.
.
You know when you overplay a track and ruin it for yourself? Like that, but on steroids. Times a thousand.
.
So months later the track is nearly done but you’re now bored to fucking tears with that killer melody. The baseline all of a sudden sounds wrong. You question every element of the track even if you loved them at first. You never want to hear it again.
.
I say, without exaggeration, every single track I’ve finished has had A Struggle like this. A moment when I wanted to give up making music. When I thought I wasn’t good enough. When I beat myself up because I was sure things couldn’t be this fucking hard for Rob Swire or Eric Prydz and maybe I was just in the wrong fucking job.
.
Yet I reminded myself that people hearing a track for the first time would love it like I did at first, and the prize of releasing a great record is worth a few hard days.
.
So I pushed past those demons and finished my tracks.
.
Not once, not twice, but hundreds of times.
.
It does not get any easier, I’m afraid. But, this is, however, what it takes, so now you know.
.
(I’ve just finished something new so the struggle is quite fresh in the memory)

Genuinely heartbroken to hear about @avicii.
.
He was such an inspiration to me (the melody in Lost was entirely inspired by his, much better and more original track “all you need is love”)
.
I didn’t know Tim well, but on the 4-5 times we hung out or shared a stage he was never anything other than gracious and lovely, even as he was becoming the biggest DJ in the world.
.
It’s utterly tragic that he should have had a whole life of making his incredible melodies for us all, and yet he’s gone less than 10 years after his career started.
.
We - the dance music industry - need to get better at taking care of our younger stars. Heavy touring is mentally and physically brutal, even when you’re used to it. I can’t even imagine being remotely ready for it when I was 18. There’s always more gigs, more tracks and more money but you only get one life. This is such a wake up call.
.
RIP Tim Berling and thanks for all the music you made. For a short time, it made all our worlds a little brighter xx 😢

I admit, my social media game when not on tour is weak as fuck.

Point is, next time someone tries to talk your goals down, just laugh it off and use it as fire. . Just because they’ve given up, doesn’t mean you have to. Just because they’re bitter and thinks the world owes them doesn’t mean you need to feel that way. . Go out, work your fucking arse off, execute daily, and mad shit happens. I fucking promise you. .

So this was last night... huge love to the incredible crowd who made it one of the best shows I’ve ever done, the rest of the line up, and our incredible team who worked longer and harder behind the scenes than us and and pulled it the fuck off. They deserve a few beers today.
.
Most of all thanks to all of you all for trusting us with your night. I hope we did it justice and I’d love to know your feedback.
.
Can we do it all again please? 🔥🔥🔥
.
To those of u who missed out, video coming soon.

Sansa has been asking to come and see ‘daddy work at the disco’ for a long time so last night we finally agreed and she came on stage and waved to 8500 people ❤️
.
In case you’re wondering why this wasn’t during the track I wrote for her, that was my encore track and way too long past her bedtime haha .

Firstly, tomorrow’s show in SF is sold out - we’re all incredibly grateful for the chance to blow all your minds tomorrow night and are working tirelessly to repay your faith in us at the biggest headline show I’ve even done.
.
Secondly, to celebrate we’re going to shoot a music video for a brand new song of mine at the show and you have the opportunity of being in it. If you’re coming to the show, and want to get involved, send us an email and one of the crew will try to get you in. Gaz x

Starting to get f*cking nervous now because  #LASERFACE SAN FRANCISCO is just 6 days away. The lasers are starting to arrive in SF, the show’s nearly sold out (over 90% now).
.
With 8500 people this is already the biggest non-festival show I have ever done and it’s down to the amazing team that makes Laserface possible.
.
I would never have imagined that we’d be able to throw a show in the Bill Graham a few years back, but now it’s actually happening. We’ll make sure we get plenty of video and photos for you guys who can’t be there on the night with us
.
Anyway, this is one of my fav vids for  #laserface NYC as the original of this song was one of the first trance records I ever heard. Plus, it works so fucking well with @nicelasers insane laser programming ❤️

I fucking love travel 🌍
.
But that wasn’t always the case.
.
Up to my 22nd birthday I’d flown 4 times in my whole life, and never left Europe. That’s not some sob story btw, I had a fucking awesome childhood and went on the boat to France every summer holidays and loved it.
.
But at 22 I had zero interest in exploring further. Why? Everything I knew was tied down in my UK identity, so why the fuck would I want to travel? I had various (incorrect) misconceptions about the rest of the world, and I was a terribly nervous flier. In short I wasn’t interested.
.
What I was interested in however, was giving up my job to go full time in music, and I soon realized that would be hard if I was only doing UK gigs, so I reluctantly started hitting the road. It turned out to be the best thing ever. At 23 I got offered a tour of Australia - problem was, I’d used up all my holiday days and I’d need to quit my job to do it. After about ten seconds of thinking, I fucked off the job and haven’t looked back since.
.
75 countries and 40 US states later I’m very grateful for this life, especially as I ended up living in one of the places I travelled to 🌴🌞
.
There’s nothing like getting on a plane (or other transport method) for refreshing your view on the world & life. Today I’m just on a day trip to Arizona for a gig but I’m still feeling the buzz.
.
Right now I don’t travel like I used to, because I have young children and it’s more important for me to be around for them, which means doing the most exciting / biggest shows and turning down most of the rest, especially if they involve substantial time away.
.
But I’ve still got that travel bug as much as ever, and as it gets easier to balance family life and work, I hope I get to top 100 countries in my life (which will involve some crazy places, because I’ve done most of the ‘easy’ ones already haha) and lockdown all 50 states (easier).
.
Safe travels fuckers ✈️🇬🇧🇺🇸

Someone took this during the first rehearsal for Laserface New York. Little did we know at this point it would lead to the biggest solo show I’ve even done in my life which takes place in San Francisco 🙌🙌🙌.
.
There are now two weeks to go. We’re working on the show tirelessly and it’s coming together very, very well. Not only do we have an amazing support lineup in the shape of @haliene and @kristinasky but I’ll be premiering one of my new vocal tracks for the first ever time 😎🙏🏻

I wanted to share a great video of our new remix but for some reason LIKE A FOOL I was taking a selfie at the time so this’ll have to do instead 🤭
.
@signumofficial’s “Coming On Strong” is an all time fav of mine. I played the Hyperlogic mix of it to death back in the day, so it’s been a true pleasure to work with @ashwallbridge on this reboot released on the new @garudamusic!
.
Been in my sets since forever but it’s finally out in all the usual places. Enjoy! 🎹😬🇬🇧😎🎉🐶👋💥🙏🏻

FULL LINE UP FOR  #LASERFACE SAN FRANCISCO!
.
So excited to have @halienemusic on this one. We’ve done a few live things before but she will be doing a solo set of her own material on the night! She’s sung on so many great tracks over the past few years I’m personally really excited to check this out
.
Then in additional my old mate and SoCal legend @kristinasky. Little known fact: when I first came to the USA in 2005, she picked me up from LAX and looked after me my whole stay. Absolute rockstar, but I recently realized we haven’t played on anything near enough shows together and it’s time to put that right.
.
The show is coming on incredibly well. Make sure you check @nicelasers Insta stories as he’s posting new videos every day of the show in process. We’re over 70% tickets sold with three weeks to go so I imagine we’ll sell out so GET INVOLED if u haven’t already.
.
Excited. Gaz x

Extremely grateful that I still get to do shows like this. I will never take this job for granted. The buzz of being on stage playing music you’ve made to a crowd like this is one of the finest things life has to offer and I feel extremely fortunate every single time to be up there.
.
Dance music is full of new talent. There’s always incredible new producers and DJs who deserve the spotlight and they inspire me to continue to work hard as fuck to continue to challenge myself as an artist and do this as long as I possibly can. I’ve been doing this a while but trust me my work ethic is 500% better than when I started at 22.
.
Hope all who saw the set enjoyed it and big love to @asotlive @arminvanbuuren @rubenderonde for having me along, and my own crew for making my job as easy as it could be tonight @kattemery @nicelasers @jordi_bouman @stevencunniffe @sergeizarovnyi. Gaz xx .
