EFL049 – Electric for Life 049 – Gareth Emery
Music gives wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm to life. – Plato
Tuesday came and went and EFL049 was all the magic we could ever need in life. It was mellow, it was therapeutic, it was pure ecstasy. Haitian DJ, Michael Brun made it on today’s show with his brand new track ‘Check This Out,’ which he co-wrote with Still Young. I must say, it was pretty damn good! A lot of love to Haiti, where EDM is receiving tremendous recognition. It is so exciting how trance has grown and gotten so much positive feedback worldwide.
Last week was all about Arty and this week, he has another spotlight with his remix of Lauren Aquilina’s ‘Ocean,’ which is simply breathtaking. We also got some action from the gods of Anjuna: Above & Beyond, Super 8 & Tab, and Maor Levi. Who doesn’t love those guys? Totally legendary!
And for the first time in EFL history, the Classic, the Track of the Week, and the EFL Anthem were played back to back. All we could say was “heck yeah” to that. Steve Helstrip, also known as The Thrillseekers, came out with ‘Affinity’ in 2003 under his Hydra alias. By far, it was the highlight of the show, and the highlight of my week! It will definitely be on repeat in my car for days.
Gareth Emery and Lange’s collaboration track ‘Another You Another Me’ took the title of Track of the Week, while Standerwick is still blowing our minds with his perfect remix of O’Callaghan’s ‘Find Yourself.’ We can’t get enough of it, guys! That track was last week’s favorite and this week’s Anthem. Congrats again, Standerwick!
Make sure to vote for next week’s Anthem on the EFL website, and let me know how you felt about today’s episode. Who do you think should make it on next week’s EFL?
