Gareth Emery Now Almost Famous

International DJ makes a messy bed with burger bunch

Gareth Emery Now Almost Famous

MORE familiar with crafting genre-dodging dance music (say Trouse DJ and he'll thrash you) and the odd club ‘banger’, international DJ Gareth Emery has pushed aside the bangers and got into bed with burgers.

He’s got burgophilia… the dirty bugger.

Inspired by some robust U.S. touring and the ‘great Californian road trip’, the DJ has crafted a DRIVE pattie special

The Southampton-born, former Manchester and now LA-based dance DJ and producer boasts nearly five million Spotify plays, a girthy transatlantic following and successive DJ Magazine ‘Best DJ in the World’ nods - not that he's fussed (he recently told fans not to bother voting for him and just play his music instead - the big humble piehead).

Emery has paired up with Manchester’s chief burger hustlers to offer up a one-off special ticket giveaway for the UK launch party of his new album, DRIVE, at the Albert Hall on Saturday 10 May.

The event has nearly sold out in the newly spruced-up Peter Street venue (a baps throw from Almost Famous at the Great Northern), with 200 of the remaining tickets (currently £24.75 online) chucked in for free with the special DRIVE burger (£10). Inspired by some robust US touring and the ‘great Californian road trip’, the DJ has crafted a DRIVE pattie special including: double cheeseburger, black and blue Philly cheese steak, blue cheese sauce, shoestring Caesar salt fries, bacon rain, jalapenos, guac mayo and transatlantic sauce-of-the-moment Sriracha.

Between Vegas residencies, sell-out New-York sets and biblical three-hour long podcasts, Emery is set to plough through the triumvirate of British dance festivals at Global Gathering, Creamfields and South West Four.

He can also be found looking petrified and teary-eyed in the corner of the Almost Famous kitchen as the burger-bots shout 'piss off back to your decks you vinyl-monkey'.

The DRIVE Burger is £10, with the first 200 including a free ticket to the UK launch of Gareth Emery’s new album, DRIVE, at the Albert Hall on Saturday 10 May, 8pm.

We've been told that 'when they're gone, they're gone'. Which seems fairly obvious.

Sorry who is actually desperate here? Almost Famous are still incredibly successful, and certainly don't need to resort to any 'desperate' measures to get more customers. Equally Gareth Emery is doing exceptionally well and doesn't need Almost Famous to help boost his career - ever thought that it was just a bit of fun and a good idea between two people that already know each other, that creates a a bit of harmless, mutually beneficial buzz for one another in the lead up to the Albert Hall night? It's a new limited edition burger to try that gets you a ticket to a cracking good night out - buzz killer like you need not apply..
