Gareth Emery is a British trance producer and DJ. He is best known for his three studio albums: Northern Lights, Drive and 100 Reasons to Live, and winning the prestigious A State of Trance Tune of the Year award three times. Between 2006 and 2013 Gareth Emery ranked in DJ Mag’s Top 50 DJs in the world, peaking at No. 7 in 2010. However, in 2013, he publicly denounced the poll due to the huge marketing budgets involved, asking fans no longer to vote for him, and donated his marketing budget to charity instead. This move was covered by many dance music blogs.
