A post shared by Gareth Emery (@garethemery) on

Meningitis is an inflammation of the brain, generally procured virally or bacterially. Effects to the nervous system can be alarming, but in many cases are temporary. The infection is generally treated with antibiotics and has a survival rate of around 85 percent.

Ashley Wallbridge is a lynchpin of the trance community, having produced official remixes for everybody from Empire of the Sun to Pryda. His latest single, “Diamonds,” is trance music at its finest, and poignantly demonstrates the British producer’s knack for melodic greatness.

Some came for the trance, others for the lasers. Regardless of the motivation, Gareth Emery‘s first-ever open-air Laserface production filled out a full house at Avant Gardner’s beloved outdoor venue Brooklyn Mirage on Friday, May 31, ultimately delivering a night to remember for many and solidifying Laserface as a one-of-a-kind show.

Starting at 10 p.m., Mike Saint-Jules, Adam Scott, and Alastor warmed up a crowd that was becoming exponentially larger. By the time Alastor ended his set at 12:50 a.m., the anticipation for Laserface was at an all-time high as attendees packed themselves onto the ground floor and into all crevices of Mirage’s castle-like upper levels to prepare for the spectacle of light shows. Pitch dark lighting set the scene for Emery’s intro ID track, with the first few solo lasers of the night making their appearance before escalating into an on-slaughter of electric green and blue waves.

Weaving together both trance classics and new releases from his latest LP with Ashley Wallbridge, Kingdom United, Emery delivered a euphoric brand of trance with mass appeal that had the audience singing and dancing along the entire night. Playing favorites from “Saving Light,” “Reckless,” and “Concrete Angel” to special remixes of Morgan Page‘s “The Longest Road,” his own popular cut of Ed Sheeran‘s “Castle on the Hill,” and Dimibo‘s psytrance remix of “Sanctuary,” the UK producer blended new and old over the two-hour set, catering to new ears and long-time fans alike. Straying slightly at times from his trance style, Emery also took risks by mashing up The Killers’ “Mr Brightside,” slipping in Daft Punk‘s “Harder Better Faster Stronger,” and paying homage to Keith Flint with select Prodigy tracks. He closed out his Laserface set with title track “Kingdom United;” it’s uplifting vocals and accompanying confetti drop painted Mirage’s air with a rainbow spectrum of lasers and glitter— concluding on a feel-good high. STANDERWICK proceeded to close the night with an explosive performance that carried the energy until the very end.

There’s no question that Laserface is a production that has allowed Emery to hone his craft of trance into an all-around art form that incorporates the highest-quality audiovisual experience. Leaving no room for doubt in the fact that Emery continues to solidify his stance as one of the prominent trance artists of the past decade, Laserface will undeniably be around for years to come.

Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge have an extensive collaboration history that spans from single releases, producing under their parody moniker CVNT5, and co-owning record label Garuda. Earlier this year, the two artists took their collaborative efforts to the next level after announcing they would be releasing a full-length album together. The compilation, titled Kingdom United, is out now on Garuda, and the expansive body of work showcases the best from both producers.

The album is inspired by the producers’ love for their home, the United Kingdom, as the country faces turbulent political times. Emery and Wallbridge announced the forthcoming LP back in February by dropping the album’s title track, “Kingdom United,” which is the perfect sonic testament to what fans can expect from the album now that it is released in full.

Kingdom United is a trance lover’s sonic playground that features 14 songs ranging from instrumental-based “Kal El” to vocal-led “Lionheart” featuring PollyAnna. Emery and Wallbridge set the bar high with previous collaborative singles together, and the album not only meets expectations, but continues to raise the standards of what fans can come to expect from the artists working together.

Kingdom United is an album that works equally well played live or at home with friends and a cup of tea,” the duo said in a release. “Wherever people choose to listen, we’re sure they’re going to love it!”

Emery recently announced that he will be bringing his infamous live show Laserface to New York’s Brooklyn Mirage. For those hoping to experience Kingdom United live amidst thousands of lasers, tickets for the event can be purchased here.

Debuting his Laserface live show back in 2017, trance visionary Gareth Emery has set his sights on even bigger and more extraordinary production scales since the concept’s inaugural show at New York’s Terminal 5. After working with laser expert and acclaimed show technician Anthony Garcia a.k.a. Nicelasers, the new and improved Laserface event features 10 stops including debut European and Asian shows. Laserface has already hit Dreamstate SoCal as well as San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and Vancouver’s PNE Forum. With each location carefully considered by the team, Laserface joins the ranks of stage productions from electronic artists like Eric Prydz‘s HOLO and deadmau5‘s various Cube designs as setups with such advanced technologies that only specific venues have the capacity to host them.

Now, Emery will once again bring Laserface to New York in its first-ever open-air performance at the Brooklyn Mirage on May 31. With an upcoming joint album, Kingdom United alongside Ashley Wallbridge underway, the “Saving Light” producer and his newest concept show will encompass a world of fresh music, euphoric energy, and ethereal visuals. Laserface at the Brooklyn Mirage will see support from Standerwick, Alastor, Adam Scott, and Mike Saint-Jules. A performance that will be brought to life by cutting-edge laser technology, Laserface Brooklyn promises an experience that stands in a calibre of its own.
