GARETH EMERY [http://www.garethemery.com, Garuda]
To say Gareth Emery has had a good year would be a vast understatement. Overthe past twelve months, the popularity and buzz surrounding the young Brit reached explosive proportions, culminating in him being voted no.9 in 2009s definitive DJ Mag Top 100 poll: one of only a handful of DJs to crack the world's top ten before the age of 30. Was this down to producing pure club anthems like Exposure and Metropolis alongside stunning remixes for Armin van Buuren and Above & Beyond, all of which led to him spending more time at the top of Beatport's trance chart that any other artist in'09? Maybe it was the launch of his new Garuda label and club night, responsible for selling out Manchester's iconic Sankeys club four times in a row whilst releasing his critically acclaimed The Sound Of Garuda compilation. Or perhaps it was the sheer amount of people he played to, banking half a million air miles travelling to over one hundred gigs at some of the world's finest clubs and festivals. Whatever the reason, one thing is for certain: he's on fire like never before.
COSMIC GATE [http://www.cosmic-gate.de]
Over 10 boundary-pushing years, Nic Chagall and Bossi have evolved Cosmic Gate into one of the most creative and highly-sought-after electronic music acts in the world.

Over their production lifetime, the Cosmic Gate remixes have become almost as fêted as their productions. Essentially a blow by blow of trance music’s A-list, Nic and Bossi lent their studio know-how to productions by the likes of Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Above & Beyond’s OceanLab project, Rank 1 and Blank & Jones. Most recently they rewired Deadmau5’s ‘Clockwork’ to devastating effect and created two highly-praised remixes of ‘Vincent De Moor - Fly Away’ and ‘Veracocha - Carte Blanche’.
