EFL056 – Electric for Life 056 – Gareth Emery
His name is Bond. Luke Bond. And the gifted British producer conquers the title of Track of the Week on EFL056 with his latest track ‘Once More.’ What a way to end the year with a bang! Featuring trance deities Christina Novelli and Roxanne Emery, AKA CARTEL, this profound track comes fully loaded with spectacular vocals and a superb breakdown. The Garuda Records superstar has been glorified on A State of Trance and Future Sound of Egypt and remains in high demand by festivals due to his powerful remixes throughout the years. Bond was decreed DJ of the Year in 2014 by Gareth Emery and has collaborated with other big EDM names such as Omnia, Cosmic Gate, and Eric Lumiere, just to name a few. Although Bond’s sound has transitioned over time, his main influence remains Progressive House. Such diversity within the EDM genre has granted him a lot of fans from different areas. 2015 also marked a great milestone in the artist’s career as well with a successful US tour and a spotlight performance on Emery’s EFLDAY as a guest mixer. Congratulations to you, sir! Well done!
This week’s show features new tracks from Kyau & Albert, Nifra, Markus Schulz and Chris Metcalfe. British twosome W&W have managed to capture two spots on the podcast today, first as winners of EFL Anthem with their slamming bootleg of Adele’s ‘Hello’ which features Kenneth G. As stated in my last EFL review, this track became an instant favorite, and is guaranteed to be a festival gem. And secondly, the other W&W appearance on the show was with the track ‘If It Ain’t Dutch,’ featuring Armin van Buuren; if you haven’t heard that track yet, you don’t know what you’re missing!
I was also terribly blown away by Sonic Future’s ‘Silence Spoken.’ The dynamic duo is comprised of the talented Brazilian-born musician Cesar Funck, and the brilliant VJ Leo, who enchants the crowds with his breathtaking visuals during performances. ‘Silence Spoken’ is one of their latest chefs-d’oeuvre that captivates our souls with sensational synths. No other track on this podcast made me feel as blissful as this one; it was simply beautiful.
