Gareth Emery has finally released his third album ‘100 Reasons To Live’ and it lives up to all of the hype.
When catching up with Gareth Emery to chat about his new album amongst other things, I could tell he was a buzz with energy surrounding his new album and it doesn’t come as much of a shock now that we have heard it, as he finally releases ‘100 Reasons To Live’ and this production piece is certainly one of them.
The different styles which Gareth Emery has brought in to this album is pretty special indeed as his third studio production project just oozes quality and maturity in the sound which has been producing over the last ten years. ‘100 Reasons To Live’ is the new high for the producer and DJ, with an album tour set to be revealed for the course of the year.
The album itself, as I said, contains a number of different styles which Gareth Emery has developed over the many years now and you get to hear this with the second track on the album ‘Cloudline’ which contains those iconic, melodic synths which just drive away through the track, but it isn’t hard hitting Trance which Emery is known. It’s chilled, especially with the vocals from Joseph which are absolutely stunning and fit beautifully with the track (Gareth did say that some of the tracks with different vocalists were to be his best!).
Following from this, he goes for the harder Trance sound with ‘Far From Home’ which features Gavrielle, fuelled with plenty of energy through the sounds that have been used, and this is a track which is sure to make an impact at the club. Also featuring is the first single from the album ‘Reckless’, and this is one of our favourite tracks to appear on the album as it features vocals from Wayward Daughter, though the energy which is contained in the track is just wonderful and to hear this played live, was pretty special.
‘100 Reasons To Live’ also contains the collaboration with Ashley Wallbridge, ‘CVNTS’, their new side project together which sees the duo take to the main stream side of the scene, using ghost producers and doing absolutely f*ck all behind the decks. A quality tune however. Have we failed to mention though that Lawson, Janet Devlin, Ben Gold, Alex Sonata and Christina Novelli all feature on the album as well?
To sum it up, it’s high energy, quality production and just an absolute pleasure to listen to. It’s the moment we have been waiting for and Gareth Emery has smashed it. You can listen to ‘100 Reasons To Live here via Spotify, or you can buy your copy of the album here.
