When I first heard this track, aged 20, I loved it so much that I promised myself if I ever managed to make it as a DJ, I’d always play it in my sets. . Well, it doesn’t quite happen every set, but I still bring it out for special occasions, partly because it still sounds fucking amazing after all these years, and partly because it lets me step back, remember the journey I’ve been on, and realize how lucky I am to love this life. . Ratty - Sunrise is the name, if you’re wondering. One of the greatest trance records ever made. . Gaz x . PS Laserface tour tickets linked in bio! Miami, Seattle.

Laserface New York is 75% sold out after the first day!
.
This little vid was the final track of the first ever @laserface_ in New York! It looks small compared to what we’ve done since but the energy and buzz in the room was insane.
.
3,000 people ready to experience something totally new for the first time... and me and @nicelasers hoping it would work 🙏.
.
Well, our return to New York at the amazing Brooklyn Mirage went on-sale this week and we did almost all the tickets in the first 24h. So grateful for the amazing support New York is giving this show.
.
General sale tickets are online now. Come and see the progress we’ve made. Link in bio 🔥

A  #TBT with @craig_connelly just after he took over as Garuda label manager in 2011, a job he did amazingly well at for 4 years before going on to launch his own career.
.
I still remember going over to his house years before we worked together and seeing a handwritten “goals list” on the back of his door and thinking that was the sort of driven person I needed on our team. .
I love the fact that all these years later he’ll be joining us to play for a huge crowd at @laserface_ Seattle in a few weeks. He’s a great example of how far hard work and dedication can get you 🙏
.
(I look dead young here because I didn’t have kids and slept about 12 hours a night. Craig on the other hand looks 12 years old, and still does. Bring your ID to Seattle mate 😂😂😂)

First time trying this. Freezing cold day, board way to small, must have fell in 100 times. Nice and refreshing. .
Plus I like being shit at things - makes it all the more rewarding when you improve.
.
I’ll be back next time, on a warmer day with a more suitably sized board and maybe next time I’ll have a picture of me actually standing on the fucking thing 😬 💦

I always feel so privileged getting to see ‘draft’ @laserface_ shows like this in programming so I wanted to share this clip today.
.
Typically, a show starts with a computer simulation... then gets tested on a small rig like this. (I say ‘small’ but this would still be an insane setup at most clubs / festivals, it’s just a lot less than Laserface)
.
Then and only then does the song get played on the show on the full laser rig.
.
These are a few clips from the amazing Matt Fax remix of Call To Arms feat. Evan Henzi!
.
Miami, Seattle and New York coming up soon. Who’s coming? Ticket links in bio 🙏

Well this has been an unbelievably shit day because for the first time in my life I managed to miss a flight that I was early for.
.
I’m massively sorry to the people of Cardiff because I’m not going to make tonight’s gig now 🙁
.
Full explanation below if you can be bothered but the key information is: the show is still on with @ashwallbridge @standerwick.dj plus my friend @gregdowney will be joining the line up. I am sure they will smash it.
.
From my side I am absolutely gutted and extremely pissed off with myself. We have arranged that anyone who has a ticket tonight can come to the Garuda Manchester show for free if that helps any of you out.
.
Gaz
.
(For anyone who’s interested here’s how I managed to miss a flight I was early for here’s what happened)
.
Got to Ibiza airport early for my flight. See that’s it’s delayed. Ok, no biggie. Get a cup of tea. No problem. Send some emails, go through some tunes etc.
.
Keep my eye on the board. The moment it changes from ‘DELAYED’ to ‘BOARDING’ I head over and join the line. This is a flight I’ve taken nearly every week for the last 2 months so I know the drill well.
.
Massive line at the boarding gate so I join the back of it and wait my turn.
.
Suddenly, I notice the board has changed to CERRADO (closed!). What the fuck?! But I’m standing in line for the flight! Nobody else seems to give a shit, so I walk to the front.
.
Turns out, a shit ton of people from an entirely different flight we’re lining up in front of our gate and I (along with a few other people) all missed the flight because we thought we were queuing up for our flight. Airport staff made no announcements and had no interest in helping.
.
Ibiza is one of the least well connected places in earth so getting to the UK in time for the show was not possible after that.
.
I am very sorry to everyone I’ve let down tonight.
.
Flying can be confusing and illogical sometimes but this isn’t my first flight - I’m meant to be a fucking pro at this so how I managed to miss a flight I was early for is truly embarrassing.
.
Apologies again. Gaz 🙁

Leaving Ibiza for a very quick night in Wales.
.
Not for the rugby this time (although I was lucky enough to be in Cardiff for the England match) but for a rare Welsh club show.
.
Set times for @garudamusic Cardiff tonight at Tramshed .
1130-1: Gareth Emery
1-2: @ashwallbridge 
2-3: @standerwick.dj
.
No rugby for me this weekend. I’d  normally be gutted to miss a grand slam decider, but I’ve got the far more important event of a 4 year old’s birthday party to get back for so I’ll be watching on TV 🔥
.
Gaz
.
(and to the one person who always cries out “YOURE A MANC WHY DO YOU SUPPORT WALES”, no, I am not, I just love Manchester and it’s my home in the UK. Full name: Gareth Thomas Rhys Emery - you don’t need to be a genius to figure out which rugby team I support 🔥)

When we threw the first @Laserface_ show in November 2017 it’s fair to say we didn’t really know what the fuck we were doing. Just throw a load of lasers in a room and hope it works 🤯
.
I remember turning up at sound check and being terrified seeing rows of random laptops basically connected together with frayed cables and hundreds of adapters and thinking: “fucking hell. There is no way this show’s going to work”
.
In fact, the entire system crashed moments before I took the stage making it seem quite likely the first ever Laserface show would be starting with no lasers... miraculously restarting just as I walked on stage 🙏🤯
.
We have made so much progress since then. Our crew, equipment and professionalism has got better and better with every show... not only is the show way, way better, but it usually actually works 😬
.
In short I can’t fucking wait to come back to where we started it all and show NYC the progress we’ve made. It’s going to blow minds 🔥🔥🔥

Spent this winter living by the beach. In a lot of ways, it can be a bit of a pain as it’s frequently windy, cold, and takes forever to get anywhere, but in the time-honoured Instagram traditional of making my life look as awesome as possible, here’s another Ibiza sunset. . . . #sunset #ibiza #garethemery #trancefamily #views #sunset_pics #beachday #ibizasunset

Well this has been an unbelievably shit day because for the first time in my life I managed to miss a flight that I was early for.
.
I’m massively sorry to the people of Cardiff because I’m not going to make tonight’s gig now 🙁
.
Full explanation below if you can be bothered but the key information is: the show is still on with @ashwallbridge @standerwick.dj plus my friend @gregdowney will be joining the line up. I am sure they will smash it.
.
From my side I am absolutely gutted and extremely pissed off with myself. We have arranged that anyone who has a ticket tonight can come to the Garuda Manchester show for free if that helps any of you out.
.
Gaz
.
(For anyone who’s interested here’s how I managed to miss a flight I was early for here’s what happened)
.
Got to Ibiza airport early for my flight. See that’s it’s delayed. Ok, no biggie. Get a cup of tea. No problem. Send some emails, go through some tunes etc.
.
Keep my eye on the board. The moment it changes from ‘DELAYED’ to ‘BOARDING’ I head over and join the line. This is a flight I’ve taken nearly every week for the last 2 months so I know the drill well.
.
Massive line at the boarding gate so I join the back of it and wait my turn.
.
Suddenly, I notice the board has changed to CERRADO (closed!). What the fuck?! But I’m standing in line for the flight! Nobody else seems to give a shit, so I walk to the front.
.
Turns out, a shit ton of people from an entirely different flight we’re lining up in front of our gate and I (along with a few other people) all missed the flight because we thought we were queuing up for our flight. Airport staff made no announcements and had no interest in helping.
.
Ibiza is one of the least well connected places in earth so getting to the UK in time for the show was not possible after that.
.
I am very sorry to everyone I’ve let down tonight.
.
Flying can be confusing and illogical sometimes but this isn’t my first flight - I’m meant to be a fucking pro at this so how I managed to miss a flight I was early for is truly embarrassing.
.
Apologies again. Gaz 🙁

Leaving Ibiza for a very quick night in Wales.
.
Not for the rugby this time (although I was lucky enough to be in Cardiff for the England match) but for a rare Welsh club show.
.
Set times for @garudamusic Cardiff tonight at Tramshed .
1130-1: Gareth Emery
1-2: @ashwallbridge 
2-3: @standerwick.dj
.
No rugby for me this weekend. I’d  normally be gutted to miss a grand slam decider, but I’ve got the far more important event of a 4 year old’s birthday party to get back for so I’ll be watching on TV 🔥
.
Gaz
.
(and to the one person who always cries out “YOURE A MANC WHY DO YOU SUPPORT WALES”, no, I am not, I just love Manchester and it’s my home in the UK. Full name: Gareth Thomas Rhys Emery - you don’t need to be a genius to figure out which rugby team I support 🔥)

When we threw the first @Laserface_ show in November 2017 it’s fair to say we didn’t really know what the fuck we were doing. Just throw a load of lasers in a room and hope it works 🤯
.
I remember turning up at sound check and being terrified seeing rows of random laptops basically connected together with frayed cables and hundreds of adapters and thinking: “fucking hell. There is no way this show’s going to work”
.
In fact, the entire system crashed moments before I took the stage making it seem quite likely the first ever Laserface show would be starting with no lasers... miraculously restarting just as I walked on stage 🙏🤯
.
We have made so much progress since then. Our crew, equipment and professionalism has got better and better with every show... not only is the show way, way better, but it usually actually works 😬
.
In short I can’t fucking wait to come back to where we started it all and show NYC the progress we’ve made. It’s going to blow minds 🔥🔥🔥

@nicelasers granted me a free two minutes during my @laserface_ set when I “didn’t have to play trance” 😂
.
So I mashed up Sub Focus, Rage Against The Machine, Daft Punk and Public Domain 😂

Here’s how it went down (swipe for 2nd part)

Miami and Seattle tickets are flying. Link in bio if you’re in the area. Gaz x

I’ve been playing this fucking track all last year and FINALLY IT IS OUT. Yes, this is Electric Pirates and it’s out today.
.
Fun fact: I campaigned hard for this track to be called “CVNT5 Of The Caribbean” but @ashwallbridge overruled me, but promised we can call a future track that. I’m just leaving this here so he knows I’m not fucking about and will hold him to it 😂.

Anyway... Electric Pirates. Out now. Link in bio. It’s also on  #KingdomUnited so be sure to pre-save the album.... May 10th!

Cold water swimming has been my unlikely new favorite hobby this winter ❄️ .
.
The place we’re staying in has an amazing long pool but it’s cold as fuck because unlike America you aren’t allowed to heat pools here. So I either had to miss swimming (one of my fav things) or just deal with it.
.
And I have to say there’s something about cold water. I won’t lie, that first minute is pure excruciating but after that you go into a weird trance-like state and don’t really feel the cold at all. Then on getting out the buzz lasts hours. Loads of health benefits too.
.
The pool here was 8c / 46f in Jan... needed a wetsuit for that, but now it’s 17c / 62f which is passable in normal swim gear but still damn cold (normal pools are 25-28c).
.
Definitely recommend (but do your own research first and don’t just listen to me as if you have health issues cold water can be seriously dangerous)

Having the latest, fanciest gear is almost always massively overrated.
.
Top is my Ibiza ‘studio’ for the winter.
.
Bottom is my LA studio.
.
BUT oddly enough I have been writing better music in Ibiza despite the fact the whole setup cost less than $1000.
.
Now my LA studio is insane. It’s soundproofed, sound treated, built in a custom structure with a floating floor, is a beautiful space to hang out in, and contains some lovely gear. It’s basically the studio of my dreams, took a year to build, and cost far too much.
.
You would think the better studio produces better music... but it turns out that’s not the case.
.
I hope this gets you hyped to go and make some shit and cause a ruckus with whatever crappy gear you can lay your hands on.

Elise was released from hospital today after a very scary week. I am so grateful right now that she’s ok.
.
She had to go in after a savage cold/flu that both her and Sansa had morphed into bronchitis, struggling to breathe, serious stuff when you’re 18 months old.
.
It started when I was in LA, so I rushed back here so Kat and I could take turns to sleep at the hospital. For the last week one of us was always by her bed.
.
Absolutely exhausted but I can’t express how relieving it is to see her old self after a week of watching her with various wires and tubes everywhere.
.
I am very grateful for the great health care she had here in Ibiza, to my wife for being an absolute soldier, and to her 3 grandparents who flew out to help.
.
There are some unusually brutal respiratory bugs in Europe this winter. Take care of your old and young people and if something doesn’t seem right, get it checked out. 🙏❤️
