GARETH EMERY & EMMA HEWITT – Take Everything (STANDERWICK Remix)

The ‘Take Everything’ STANDERWICK Remix was personally requested by Gareth Emery after the massive success of STANDERWICK’s Remix of ‘Reckless’. The rock influenced remix with its angelic leads and Emma Hewitt’s stunning vocals truly is a masterpiece.

Snarling electric guitars and cavernous live drums signal the arrival of Standerwick’s searing, rock-influenced remix of ‘Take  Everything’. Seamlessly fusing his trademark edge and energy with angelic leads, this 136bpm beast prowls the depths with thunderous intent before a cathartic  melodic counterpoint ascends; delivering Emma Hewitt’s vocals to the heavens.

 

 

GARETH EMERY & EMMA HEWITT DROP LONG-AWAITED SINGLE: ‘TAKE EVERYTHING’

It’s without doubt a team-up long awaited by fans across the dance music spectrum since their stunning 2010 collaboration ‘I Will Be The Same’, and it’s happening today. Off the back of their recent, brilliant live acoustic cover of Avicii’s ‘Without You’, frequent live collaborators and fellow Trance icons Gareth Emery and Emma Hewitt have joined forces on a drop-dead gorgeous single certain to empower, enchant and inspire every step along the way: ‘Take Everything’.

Listen to Gareth Emery & Emma Hewitt – Take Everything

 

Already tried and tested live at Gareth Emery’s Laserface Dreamstate show, ‘Take Everything’ sees the two industry icons set an emotionally charged backdrop and serve up a resolute message of emotional survival as poignant as it is defiant. Combining Emery’s inimitable, signature sound with Emma Hewitt’s sublime vocals, the song captures the emboldened spirit of rising from the ashes of a past gone wrong and starting again. From bitter endings to the possibility of new beginnings, ‘Take Everything’ is the resounding declaration of an unbreakable spirit.

 

Gareth Emery: “People have been asking for years when Emma and I would release another song together and when we finally sat down together in LA to write, ‘Take Everything’ just arrived so quickly and naturally…it was one of those songs that was just ready to be written. We have been performing this live on the recent Laserface shows together and it is unbelievably satisfying to see it resonating with people emotionally on such a scale even before the record has come out. I am really proud of this record.”

 

Emma Hewitt: “Working with Gareth was an absolute blast too; he is not only one of my absolute favorite producers in the universe, but also one of my very favorite people.  He was on the exact same wavelength with this song and the session just clicked. ‘Take Everything’ is really a declaration of independence for me; it is saying that after the storm, there will always be a new start and a universe of new possibilities in front you. It is a really powerful thing to sing that idea to life and to believe in new beginnings; I hope people take heart in the idea of new possibilities and the pages yet to be written…”

 

MARKUS SCHULZ PRESENTS ‘IN BLOOM’ VOLUME ONE // ‘SAFE FROM HARM’ VIDEO ONLINE NOW

Be in no two minds, Schulz loves Spring, and following last night’s red carpet rollout for the season, Spring’s sure gotta love Schulz!

Over the course of the In Bloom Global DJ Broadcast all-vocal trance special, every voice was raised in the celebration of the inbound season. Throughout were premiere unveilings of four previously unheard studio works, alongside the freshly minted Club Mix of lead track ‘Safe From Harm’. Each, in their own right, a hail to the new season, collectively they comprised the show’s ‘In Bloom EP’ counterpart. Spring, frankly, never had it so good!

Case you missed it all unfold, here’s the recap…

March’s Emma Hewitt-sung ‘Safe From Harm’ (the official video for which is online now) planted the seed for ‘In Bloom’ square. ‘Safe’ rolled a second six on the special with its deep ‘n’ boomy Club Mix transportation. You always suspected it was lurking behind the original’s daytime radio version, and pow – there it was.

With barely pause for breath, Markus brought on a second producer/singer debut, which put him on a first-time team-up with another internationally celebrated songstress. Backed by some major league trance elevation, singing/songwriting doyen JES was ‘Calling For Love’. The Global DJ Broadcast forum lit up.

The dusky-tones of Adina Butar were up next up with a breath-stealing performance backed by none other than Andy Moor. (Now who saw that coming?!!) With opaque lyrics and a captivating delivery, Adina welled an emotional storm for ‘Wild Dream’, while Andy helmed its prog-trance production line… right up to his let-rip drop.

Lest you were thinking that the EP was a legends-only club, next up newer names received their ‘In Bloom’ call-up. Behind the scenes, Coldharbour master sergeant Dave Neven had been hard at work with Romanian vocalist Ellie White. On ‘Try For Me’, her beautifully figurative verse opened up onto the track’s anthemic end-of-the-night chorus. The online crowd roared.

That left Anske to closeout this epic round of premiering… and how. Alongside the crystalline delivery of singer Victoriya, the man from Vilnius went the extra mile in ensuring that Spring got sprung. Tracking the arc of its beautiful fluttering note patterns to perfection, ‘Love Won’t End’s ebbing, flowing synths developed into a sky-kiss of a trancer.

 

With all of this finery on board, the Markus Schulz Presents In Bloom Volume One bursts forth today. You can stream/purchase through all respectable outlets though this link: https://coldharbour.choons.at/inbloom

MARKUS SCHULZ & EMMA HEWITT – SAFE FROM HARM

Placing the spotlight on song-centric trance, today sees Markus Schulz unveil the first track from his new capsule project through Spotify .

‘Safe From Harm’ has him on a first time studio-connect with Australian’s Emma Hewitt – a singer/songwriter who has vocally defined the music of many a producer, Chris Lake, Tiësto, Dash Berlin and Cosmic Gate included.

‘Safe’ intuitively finds the equilibrium between Emma’s resolute vocals & heart-on-sleeve lyrics and the diffused piano & more vertically inclined synths of Markus’ rapturous production.

‘Safe From Harm’ represents the first of five recordings, which collectively will comprise Markus’ new-season-embracing ‘In Bloom’ EP’.

A release counterpart to his now annual Global DJ Broadcast In Bloom special, the show is one of his four yearly concept mixes. Alongside the Sunrise, Afterdark and Classics Showcases, each channels the vibe and divines the essence of the prevailing season. Spring’s In Bloom’s broadcast places the focus exclusively on vocal trance, while the EP tightens the emphasis again, zeroing in on the talents of female electronic music singers & songwriters.

Essential spring listening, the Global DJ Broadcast’s In Bloom special airs Thursday April 19th, with the full EP dropping the following day, April 20.

Mark Sixma & Emma Hewitt – Missing (Andrew Rayel & Mark Sixma Remix)

 

 

The next evolution of Mark Sixma & Emma Hewitt’s latest outing, the Andrew Rayel & Mark Sixma Remix of ‘Missing’ sees the original turned into a mainstage slammer. Ferociously energetic and immersed in its creators highly-acclaimed signature sounds, this version is sure to thrill fans like no track has done before.

 

 

 

Instantaneous. Addictive. Celebratory. Newly minted label impresario, Andrew Rayel, teams with fellow electronic dance music DJ/producer, Mark Sixma, to remix “Missing” by the latter. Featuring the mesmerizing vocals of dance music vocalist, Emma Hewitt, “Missing” is the contemporary re-work of the 1994 megahit of the same title by the band, Everything But The Girl. Mark Sixma featuring Emma Hewitt’s “Missing” (Andrew Rayel & Mark Sixma Remix) (inHarmony Music) is out today!!

.Characterized by one of the most memorable, timeless toplines in pop music history, “Missing” was the biggest mainstream hit song by the band, Everything But The Girl, peaking at #2 on the Billboard ‘Hot 100’ chart in 1995. The song also earned the band an RIAA Gold certification in the U.S. in 1996 following the release of the song as a single by Atlantic Records. Too young to have fallen in love with the song the first time around, Mark Sixma nevertheless possesses an acute ear for melody. It was only recently that he decided to re-record the song, enlisting friend and noteworthy clubland singer, Emma Hewitt, to reimagine Tracey Thorn’s original vocals. Rising to the occasion and elevating her supreme talents to soaring new heights, Hewitt hit the ball out-of-the-park with her rendition for Mark Sixma’s “Missing.” In a perfect twist of timing and opportunity, Andrew Rayel had just announced the launch of his own imprint, inHarmony Music. It would prove only natural that the Andrew Rayel & Mark Sixma Remix of “Missing” should find a home on Rayel’s shiny new record label. Mark Sixma featuring Emma Hewitt’s “Missing” elicits wild, unadulterated glee when Rayel or Sixma play it out live.

MARK SIXMA & EMMA HEWITT – Missing

When it’s Friday and you think it just couldn’t go any better than this….here we go with a surprise!!

Mark Sixma joining forces with the beautiful and talented Emma Hewitt and treating us with such an ear candy!! Here at the office we have this fabulous tune on repeat, we dare you not to do the same!!

Listen to Mark Sixma & Emma Hewitt – Missing

A brilliant interpretation of the well-known hit song, ‘Missing’ is as enchanting as a song can be. From Mark Sixma’s top-notch production to Emma Hewitt’s haunting vocals, this ‘90s classic turned Trance gem fully deserves its place at the top of your playlist.

A chat with the Trance Queen…Emma Hewitt

Emma Hewitt doesn’t need any introduction, her very recognizable voice and distinctive style, made me fall for her the very first time I heard her singing; after so many big collaborations (Cosmic Gate, Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin..to name a few) and the great success of her album Burn the Sky Down, she is now back with another stunning tune in cooperation with Mark Sixma,called “Restless Hearts”.

I am so excited to share this interview with you guys,she’s not only an amazing trance singer and song writer, not only a beautiful woman, but also a wonderful soul, so kind-hearted and down to earth, and I am feeling really blessed she made the time to support my blog!!

J: Hello Emma,
thank you for supporting my blog with this interview 🙂

E: Hey Jess, it’s my pleasure! 🙂 Thanks for chatting with me 🙂

J: I know you started to sing when you were really young, so would you tell me
how did it all start?

E: It was never really a conscious decision, I just always wanted to sing and
be involved with music in some way. I started singing in bands when I was
still in school. As soon as I finished school my brother and I were saving
to record demos and send them to anyone who would listen. Through this
process, and constant writing and learning, we went in and out of different
record and publishing deals, different managers, many moves to different
countries and a lot of trial and error before we came to where we are now,
in electronic music.

J: What is the difference between being in a band and being a trance singer ?

E: The songs are all still written in the same way, on an acoustic guitar or
piano. The main difference for me is the freedom to travel around the
world either alone or with one other person and perform. With a band there
was always 6 of us and a sound guy, so travel and shows actually became
quite expensive. I must say it was a lot of fun having so many other
people to bounce off though. I really enjoy both worlds to be honest.

J: What inspires you the most when you write your lyrics?

E: Always life. The stories of the people around me. My own emotions.
Songwriting is a very therapeutic exercise and for me allows me to express
emotions and nostalgia that I probably wouldn’t otherwise express.

J: What is the most emotional gigs you remember?

E: Most of them actually become emotional in some way. There is often so much
energy from the crowd and I am always trying to give as much energy as I
can back. I think perhaps for me, the first solo sets I did at some of the
big festivals were kind of a milestone for me, as for a while people told
me only djs could do that.

J: Who would you like to work with in the next future ?

E: Anyone who writes a fantastic song and has a great sound…and of course is
a good person too 🙂

J: in your album Burn the sky down (that I adore) there is also a cover from
Placebo, This Picture, can you tell me why did you choose that tune ? (I am
a huge Placebo fan too)

E: Oh you are? Awesome! I am a huge fan of 90’s rock and industrial music.
I grew up with this darker kind of music, so I wanted to give a nod to that
genre.

J: What are the ups and downs of your job?

E: The ups of course are probably too many to list. I get to do what is
absolutely my passion, for this I count myself very lucky. Seeing places
all over the world that I would never otherwise have the chance to visit is
a wonderful perk, meeting people and making friends from other countries,
the crowds and energy of the shows…
Perhaps the only downside, which I would never complain about still as I am
grateful to do what I do…but I would have to say it would be missing out
on spending time with family and friends. Also perhaps the instability and
not particularly belonging anywhere. But I am happy to continue being a
traveling gypsy as the goods far out way the negatives!!

J: Any new project on the way?

E: Many! I have quite a few new collaborations lined up and I am also looking
at releasing a solo ep or album early next year. I took some time out from
releasing music for a while to gather fresh inspiration. Now I am fully
inspired and writing like crazy! 🙂

J: How did success affected your life ?

E: I guess it is difficult for any of us to really gauge our own success or
see ourselves as successful. For me I am always looking to the next
project or the next thing I want to achieve. I wouldn’t consider myself
successful until I have achieved all I want to. And I think if I ever
achieve all I want to I will become stagnant…there is so much more I want
to do before I would say I have reached success though.

J: You travel a lot, what are the things you always carry with you?

E: Always my kindle…I read a lot on flights. Black mascara is always a
must…without it I look like I have no eyes…if I stand in front of a
white wall you can’t see me. I always have my TC Helicon voice live vocal
effects so that I can create delays and reverbs for my live vocals,
ultimate ears in ear monitors so I can hear myself onstage…My
laptop…some giant shoes so I can pretend I am taller onstage :):)

J: Do you have a lucky charm?
E: Not a lucky charm so much, but I do travel with a few crystals that fit in
my pockets for good vibes and protection.

J: Are you coming back to Italy any soon?

E: I truly hope so! Italy is one of my favorite places in the world to
visit!! I absolutely LOVE the people…and the food!!!! Fingers crossed I
get to visit soon!

Thanks again Emma, really loved you find the time in your extra busy schedule for this lovely chat, and hope to see you again very soon 🙂

Here you can find her latest masterpiece with Mark Sixma “Restless Hearts”
