El DJ británico Gareth Emery lanzó su tercer álbum de estudio 100 Reasons to Live bajo su propio sello discográfico, Garuda. Este álbum inmediatamente logro posicionarse en los primeros lugares en ventas en más de 10 países.

Tras 2 años de arduo trabajo 100 Reasons To Live llega no solo con una gran mezcla de sonidos sino con un gran mensaje por parte del Emery, el cual dio una breve descripción de cómo nació el título de este álbum en un post de Instagram, este giro que tomo en su carrera Gareth Emery es un verdadero ejemplo a seguir.

Strange but true fact: about two years ago, I was fucking miserable. I didn't have any reason to be. I was reasonably successful, in a job that I loved, was married to a beautiful wife, lived in an amazing house, had no recent major tragedy in my life, or any of the other things that make people unhappy, yet I was pretty much constantly annoyed. Why? Because a festival I wanted to play wouldn’t book me. Because I wanted to stay in a suite, but the promoter would only book me a standard room. Because my brand-new Lamborghini was going to take nine months to be delivered from the factory, when I wanted it in six. You probably hate me reading that. I don’t blame you. Reading this back, I hate me, too. However, there is a depressing trend that I have noticed amongst famous + successful DJs: just how many of them are really fucking unhappy. They’re traveling the world, living a lifelong dream that took decades of work to accomplish, and yet they’re constantly pissed because they were given Moet instead of Cristal, or because one person on social media said their new record sucked. Boo fucking hoo. Bring out the violins. Short story long, that was how 100 Reasons To Live got its name. I saw myself turning into an archetypal miserable DJ and decided that was not the person I wanted to be. I figured out that happiness and a love of life doesn’t come from career success or material wealth; in fact, some of the happiest people I knew were, on paper, some of the less successful. Now, I’m not saying “don’t make money” or “don’t be successful”. I happen to be a fan of both. But I learned that those things alone don’t make me happy. Why does make me happy? Many things. Sunshine. Walking outside. Beers at the pub with friends. Taking my daughter to music class. Lazy Sundays. Sunsets. Swimming. Turning off my phone, logging out of emails, getting off the social media hamster wheel, and engaging the world around me – something which I’d totally lost the ability to do. In short, I rediscovered what made me happy, or in other words, figured out my ‘Reasons To Live’, and then stuck '100' in the front for no other reason than it sounded better. It’s out today, by the way

Gareth Emery exploró un sonido diferente durante su nuevo álbum y contó con grandes colaboraciones como es el tema con Ben Gold llamado “Until We Meet Again” sin duda uno de los temas más destacados en donde se unieron para crear una gran melodía trance.

“Save Me” logra capturarte con una melodía y vocal extenuante en la cual unió fuerzas nuevamente con Christina Novelli (por si no lo saben es la vocalista en “Concrete Angel”), no podemos dejar de lado su colaboración con Ashley Wallbridge, CVNT5, que si bien son seguidores de ambos DJs sabrán que este tema y dúo hace mofa de la escena y DJs actuales debemos reconocer que es bastante gracioso.”

“We Were Young”, “Reckless” y “Hands” son temas en los que repite la fórmula de su álbum anterior Drive combinando grandes melodías y vocales haciendo de 100 Reasons to Live uno de los mejores proyectos de Gareth.
