Over 30 years in the game and Darren Emerson remains one of the best loved, most highly respected and in-demand artists in the business.
Put simply; he’s worked and collaborated with the best there is. He’s played every major club and festival on earth. Sold millions of albums with Underworld. Rocked the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury. Had his own night in Ibiza…. and that’s mentioning hardly anything; just check his Wikipedia.
Always pushing for progress, he launched his new talent platform ‘Detone’ in 2012 in a bid to discover and to nurture the next generation of techno talent, at a time when the industry was only concerned with big names.
Carl Cox still regards him as an all time favourite and continues to add him to the line-ups for his massive Intec parties worldwide.
His ‘3D’ offshoot with Danny Howells and Dave Seaman continues to set dance floors on fire. Born out of a gig together at Ministry Of Sound, the DJ trio have played a string of high profile festival dates this year, already have a successful North American tour under their belt and are now set to tour South America.
Emerson’s brand new imprint, ‘Distant Planet’, looks set to grow his legacy. His biggest project yet will serve as the new platform for his own productions and feature other forward-thinking techno from the world’s elite.
In the know fans will be relieved to know that his alias ‘The White Lamp’ finally set to release more music this year.
And with a new live mix album slated for September, plus a Distant Planet showcase in the works for ADE, Emerson looks set to continue his reign at the top and rightly so. There could be nobody humbler or more deserving in our opinion.
