Gareth Emery was born in Southampton, England although he also has Welsh heritage, and he is an avid supporter of the Welsh rugby team. He lived in Southampton until the age of 26 before relocating to Manchester, England where he had a studio and ran a night club and record label, both called Garuda. He has a degree in Politics from University of Warwick, supports Southampton Football Club, and is trained in classical piano. Prior to becoming involved in electronic music he played guitar in a punk band in the mid-nineties. He now lives in Los Angeles with his wife Kat.
Emery has a distinctive production style that has been described as a fusion of trance, house and progressive, and is described by Emery himself as ‘simples’. Although usually categorised as a trouse DJ, he has often dismissed this label simply stating that he plays good records regardless of genre.
“U” by Gareth Emery feat. Bo Bruce was released in January 2014.
