Gareth Emery has been a stand-out artist in more ways than one in a pandemic-educed era.
Between releasing a full-length album THE LASERS earlier this year, scoring thousands in pay-per-view livestream ticket sales exploring different music soundscapes and performance styles over months, and now sharing acoustic renditions of his releases – to say Emery has turned a weird year into a re-invented positive would be an understatement.
“This is one for the chilled out Sunday afternoon vibes. One for 2020 when clubs are closed and festivals are cancelled. I’m really proud of how these stripped back versions have turned out. In some ways, the power and message of the songs comes through a lot more.”– Gareth Emery
Having experienced Emery’s 2020 LP, the acoustic edits here certainly hit the spot and fit in alot of ways.
Surprising, alluring, familiar in many aspects; yet all encompassing, embodies a few descriptions of where this unique LP takes the listener.
