Stay focused on the future but don’t forget the past.
.
So grateful to have @laserface_ to bring back tracks that changed life back in the day.
.
‘Carte Blanche’ is simply one of the greatest trance records of all time.... made nearly 20 years ago by Ferry Corsten and the sadly retired Vincent de Moor, and still has more beauty than almost anything released today.
.
Not all of these older records work in clubs, but at #laserface we can give them the production they truly deserve 🔥❤️🙏

Best trance record of 2018?

I think I’ve heard all the good ones but I always miss some belters.
.
Will download anything that gets a few recommendations and add anything especially tasty to my @laserface_ set.

THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE OF HOW TO SEND A DEMO.
.
Everyone always asks me this, so here goes.
.
First off, a hard truth.
.
Most DJs are quite good at listening to demos, so if your demos aren’t getting any responses, there is a good chance they are just not good enough, yet.
.
But assuming they are, here is how to max the chances of DJs listening to them.
.
1. Email your demo with a DOWNLOADABLE Soundcloud or Dropbox link. Do not send an unplayable edit, make us use a password, send low-quality, or disable downloads. We like an easy life.
.
2. Do not give your life story, it’s not relevant. Instead, just give any key facts about you and the music.
.
3. Do not make excuses “It needs mastering / needs some more work / etc”. If you don’t think it’s good enough, I certainly won’t. Get it right first before you send it.
.
4. Send one track only, your best one. If you MUST SEND MORE, send up to 3, but bear in mind, DJs will probably only listen to the first one 😎
.
5.  DO NOT GIVE YOUR DEMO TO ME IN PERSON ON A USB. This is a terrible strategy, yet so many people do it. My Mac hasn’t even got a fucking USB port (thanks Apple!). Plus, if you hand me a USB in the madness of a club, I will either lose or, or will hand it to @nicelasers , who will lose it. Live shows are simply not the right environment to be given new music.
.
Here is an example email you can adapt:
.
📩 Hi Gaz & Team. David Blah here, 19 year old producer from Slovakia. I wanted to send you my new track, available for signing. Previously, my music has been supported by Armin van Blah, Dash Blah, and 3lah. Dropbox link is below. Hope you like it!
.
That’s it. Adapt, and send.
.
I’m afraid I do not have time to give feedback on individual demos, because a) I have limited time which I save for making my own music, b) I give much free advice on here and c) frankly, things like putting my children to bed each night are more important than listening to demos. Sorry 😐.
.
But, you can send us demos any time.
.
For the Garuda record label, steven@garuda.nu.
.
For my sets only promos@garethemery.com
.
Happy sending.

A few friends said I’d get fucking murdered for playing this. Didn’t happen. But maybe it will now I’ve posted it haha 😬
.
My justification is, it’s a classic and also @nicelasers favorite dance music track of all time so if you’re angry about it being played you know who to blame 😬.

Back when my parents still hoped I would work for a leading Investment Bank 😬.

Shortly after this photo was taken I was introduced to epic #trance, v necks, leather jackets and nothing has been the same since 🔥😬❤️.

I love that so many of you find my content useful and I love your positive feedback on my longer posts.
.
But, there is nothing special about what I do, and trust me I am very far from perfect.
.
I’ve made thousands of mistakes and still make mistakes every single day.
.
But I try and learn from them.
.
That’s it.
.
Just try and be a little better of a human being today, than you were yesterday.
.
It doesn’t sound like a lot but if you can improve a little every day, fucking awesome things will happen in your life.
.
Get out there and smash it 😬🔥. (📷: from @covemanila ).

Fuck 138. Here’s some 170 for you 😎.
.
The Darren Styles remix of ‘Lights and Thunder’ has been one of the biggest tracks on this Laserface tour.
.
When I first heard it, I thought it was amazing but probably too hard for me to actually play....... bravo to crowds all over the world for opening their minds to the faster styles 🔥.

What was the first track of mine you heard?.
.
This was the first ever @garudamusic release from 2009, released out of a tiny office above Sankeys in Manchester with zero budget and little more than passion and drive fueling it.
.
It’s still one of my favorite releases we’ve ever done. .
(link in bio if you want a refresher).

Been such a joy being on tour with @emmahewittoffical again, not just an incredible performer but a genuinely lovely person off stage too.
.
This was our last minute rehearsal in Las Vegas just a few hours before the show 🤯.
.
She will be joining us at Dreamstate for our Laserface there. 🔥😎.

For the record, my sets at Laserface are not pre recorded in any way. Fuck that.
.
I am DJing 100% live. Doing it any other way wouldn’t feel right.
.
Here’s how it works.
.
I send @nicelasers my tracks for the show very early - months in advance - and he painstaking programs an individual laser show for every song.
.
After that, lights and visuals are added too.
.
We use a super cool bit of software called @tcsupply which sends my feed from the decks to @nicelasers.
.
He can see exactly what tracks I am playing, what’s coming up next etc, and the software also keeps each song’s laser show perfectly in time.
.
It’s pretty awesome.
.
I can slow down, speed up, pause the music, use cues, re edit live and the lasers just follow whatever I do.
.
We are lucky to have a fucking amazing team who are as passionate as we are about making the greatest dance music laser show the world has ever seen.
.
Whilst still keeping it live.

This is my favorite piano piece of all time, ‘I Giorni’ by Einaudi.
.
On Saturday, I was fortunate enough to perform it at a wedding of two good friends. I was a little rusty but just about managed it I think.
.
Playing the piano in front of a crowd is a very different experience to playing on my own at home but one gig at a time, I’m getting there, and who knows, maybe one day it can be something more than a one-off thing 🤔.
