“I wanted the first edition of ‘Evolve’ to highlight my evolution as an artist, so it includes bits that I’ve done a few years ago and some stuff that’s come out recently, plus some brand new exclusives. Naturally as things change in our life we are EVOLVING, so this project will represent my journey as an artist and a label owner” – Darren Emerson

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; heʼs worked and collaborated with the best there is. Heʼs 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 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. Darren’s ‘3Dʼ offshoot with Danny Howells and Dave Seaman (a concept born out of a gig together at Ministry Of Sound), continues to set dance floors on fire around the globe seeing them performing at high profile festival dates along with exciting North and South American tours.
And that’s mentioning hardly anything; just check his Wikipedia.
Always pushing for progress, Darren launched his new talent platform ‘Detoneʼ in 2012 in a bid to discover and to nurture the next generation of Techno artists, at a time when the industry was only concerned with big names. Since it’s inception, the label has established itself as one of the top underground hubs for innovative talent such as Saytek, Jon Tejada, Steve Mulder, G Flame, P Ben, Satoshi Fumi among others, as well as being a platform for his own musical output.
