Following the epic sold out Podcast 100 event at the world’s no.1 club Sankeys, Gareth Emery and Garuda join forces with Digital Society for an arena show to mark the launch of his debut artist album ‘Northern Lights’ at the stunning O2 Academy in Leeds.

In the first performance of its kind by a UK trance artist, GE will be celebrating the release of Northern Lights (23rd Sep) by kicking off his worldwide album tour in Leeds with a one-off concert style event, featuring a four hour DJ and live set, with vocal performances and instrumental interludes seamlessly integrated into Gareth’s longest ever performance in Europe.

Accompanying this will be a custom-designed arena show, with a wealth of exclusive features including next generation LEDs, CO2 cannons, dancers and of course stunning sound, as you’d expect from an event hosted by Garuda and Digital Society. Plus we’ll be making sure the entire show is professionally filmed so you can remember it later (for free).

Also performing in the arena will be two very special guests. Already a huge favourite with the Digital Society crowd, Sean Tyas makes his debut on a Garuda event at the perfect time given that he’s just delivered a stunning remix for ‘Sanctuary’, the debut single from Northern Lights, which has been a YouTube sensation, clocking up 200,000 views in the first two days alone. In addition, taking the earlier slot will a trance and progressive legend in Orkidea – one of Gareth Emery’s favourite DJs - who’ll be setting the scene like only he knows how.

With Garuda responsible for numerous sell outs of Sankeys and Digital Society the new standard bearer of the trance sound in the UK, you can be sure that when these two modern era super brands combine with Gareth Emery in the form of his life you’ve got something very special indeed. This event will not be repeated anywhere else, so wherever you’re based, book that plane or train ticket and make sure you’re there. We can’t wait - see you down the front.

Tickets: Available through Ticketweb.co.uk
Standard: £15 advance, more on the door.
VIP balcony: £25 advance, more on the door. Includes balcony view over the arena, and exclusive VIP toilets and bar. Strictly limited numbers available: these will sell out so don’t delay.

Garuda & Digital Society Interview Sean Tyas ahead of his Performance at Gareth Emery: The Northern Lights Concert @ O2 Academy Leeds, Friday 8th October




Sean Tyas


Hi mate, how’s it going? – your performing at the much anticipated Northern Lights Concert with Gareth Emery on the 8th October in Leeds to celebrate the launch of his debut artist album. What are your thoughts on the man of the moment?


Gareth’s awesome, I’ve only really gotten to know him a tad better over the last few months at a bunch of gigs and he’s a cool dude! I really respect his wide range of versatility as a DJ because of his track selection which really chameleons well into any type of club. That’s right I just use “chameleon” as a verb.


2010 has been a great year for you on tour. What have been highlights - any special gigs or events that have really stood out?


Trance Energy mainstage of course. I’d have to say up until now that would easily be the highlight of my career thus far, but other things that have simply been just great were the Australia tour earlier this year, 4 gigs over in Miami for WMC, ASOT 450 in Toronto, and one of my personal faves, the Luminosity Beach Party in Holland.


On the production front - any news on forthcoming material? Which tracks out there are really doing the damage on the dance floor right now?


I have been LOVING the new BK & Organ Donors stuff lately…. Who knew they would convert to such an awesome banging sound appropriate for a trance DJ? On my own front, you will be very surprised to hear what a couple of my new projects sound like. Very melodic but much slow (same punch I promise). Don’t let that fool you though, the new collab of myself and Patterson is well underway and im working on several other trancers at the moment as well.


Podcasting & Radioshows have become an important part of an artists visibility in the modern era – tell us about what you have got going on?


I can proudly say as of writing this I’m prepping my 62nd episode of my Tytanium Sessions show, a weekly radioshow that goes out on afterhours every Monday and then in Podcast version early every Tuesday morning (5AM UK time usually!) It’s basically been my pride and joy for the last 12 months, as I’ve been really working extra hard listening to everything I get to make sure is the best collection of tunes I like, while maintaining that each and every show is completely new stuff. I have to say it makes me smile sometime because I get phone calls and messages from OTHER DJs who apparently listen to my show then ask me where I got which tracks from where as THEY now want to play them.


Finally, any words of wisedom for the masses as we approach The Northern Lights Concert?


The basic idea of trance music is about to change. I’m not sure how, but it is long overdue for it. I am so excited to see what the next 2 years will bring, whether it be mine or from other producers, but it is sure to fun!


Thanks again, looking forward to a superb night!

The Northern Lights Concert is the first concert themed event from you, can you tell us what we can expect and what the differences will be to a usual Garuda event at Sankeys?


The main difference is in the production. Part of the reason why we wanted to do this event at the O2 was because it’s such a big room, which means we can bring in a shit load of additional production and put on something proper special. Sankeys is a great club venue, and doing shows there we’d always spend extra bringing in lasers and VJs, but that was about the limit. With the O2 we can expand to custom LED screens, CO2 cannons and other exciting stuff. Also, as it’s more of an arena, it’s better suited for live singers and performers on stage, plus it’s also that big bigger. Some of our big events at Sankeys maybe got a bit too hectic when the club was completely sold out… but with the O2 we know however busy it is, it’s still going to be comfortable.


Are there plans for Northern Lights Concerts to be held in other countries?


Er, I don’t know really. If this one is a success then maybe. It’s by far the biggest and boldest thing we’ve done on the events side, but assuming it all runs smoothly and we don’t naughty it up, we may take it elsewhere. We’ve had a few promoters from overseas asking if they can host one but I want to make sure the first one works out before thinking about that.


What inspired the name Northern Lights?


It’s sort of a tribute to the North of the UK, specifically Manchester where I moved to a couple of years ago, because that definitely was a turning point in my career. The biggest change was getting a proper studio and office rather than working at home – then quite soon after that we founded the Garuda label and club nights, and of course it was in my Manchester studio where I wrote and produced the album. I used to think of the North as grim but it’s been pretty good to me the last few years and I love living there.


With your debut album released and hitting the #1 spots in both the US & Canadian iTunes Dance charts - what can we expect from Gareth Emery in 2011 and beyond?


There’s a new Sound of Garuda mix compilation due at some point in the not-too-distant future and we’re also doing a Northern Lights remix album which will be out in 2011. And of course I’m already thinking about another artist album, but I plan in taking it a bit easier, so that won’t be surfacing until at least 2012.


Sum up the production process of NL in three words...


naughty hard work.


What track on the album is your favourite and why?


Probably Sanctuary – but that was always going to be the case as it was the first single and has done really well already, so there’s no worries about people not liking it. Other than that, I’d say Arrival is quite special for me, as it’s a cool, housey track but still goes off.

Arrival features Brute Force (an Indian duo). Can you throw some light on this crossover collaboration?


This was a long process. I first heard the flute that features in the track about two years ago when I was touring India and met Tuhin (one half of Brute Force) and immediatley loved it, and wanted to do something with it. The Brute Force guys loved the idea and sent me the flute, but I didn’t get a chance to look at it for probably another year and a half and I’m sure there were times when they thought it would never happen. The actual track itself started in April, the night before I was playing Armin’s ASOT450 celebration in Bratislava. I really wanted something new to kick off with, and ended up staying up all night to write an intro track, which essentially was a very basic version of Arrival, done in about three hours. It worked great as an intro but lacked something organic for me… so on the plane on the way back I was wondering how to introduce a bit of texture to make the track a bit less synthy, when I suddenly remembered the flute. Of course, the tracks were in different keys, but I was able to re-pitch the Arrival demo and play the flute over the top, and it was clear the two were a good match. So the next week I headed back into the studio, changed the key of Arrival, added the flute and a bunch of other stuff, and it was done. Track of the album for a lot of people it seems.


In the economic climate of today, what are the toughest challenges in running your ‘Garuda’ label and club night?


The label is challenging and doesn’t make a lot of money, but that’s more down to the fact that most people download the music rather than buy it rather than the economic climate. We also spend money on good remixes and nice artwork, so all in all it’s good that I don’t rely on the label for a living. The club nights do a lot better, but we’re really about making sure people come and have an amazing time, so we spend a lot of extra cash on visuals, production, lasers etc that we could do without, but it makes a big difference. The nights have done great, but that’s partly because we only do 5-6 of them a year so can make each and every one fairly unique. Doing it every week would be more difficult.


Who is your next tip for big breakthrough act?


Ben Gold. He’s making some great music and is a really good DJ too – I think you’ll definitely see him getting bigger and bigger over the next few years.


Thanks for your time Gareth, roll on the 8th October!
