DJ Mag Rank: If they had stayed together? Top 20 easy. Top 10 likely
Fans across the world were devastated to learn of the split between Josh Gabriel and Dave Dresden in March 2008. There was always the hope of the two reuniting, but it was never likely to happen, or was it?
At their height, Gabriel & Dresden were packing clubs everywhere. Their productions were in everyone’s sets and their biggest supporters included Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Markus Schulz and Above & Beyond. Their hits (listed above ) are widely considered to be all-time classics. As the Rush Comes and their No One on Earth remix both made the top 10 of the Trance Top 1000. The only other artists with multiple top 10 all time tracks are Tiesto and Armin.
This will be their second club gig since getting back together for NYE in LA. If you have never seen Gabriel & Dresden, you must attend. If you claim to be a fan of dance music, you stopped reading this and bought your ticket. if you’re still reading, what are you waiting for?
Armada man Blake Jarrell adopted Chicago as his new home after Katrina forced him to move from the Big Easy. And although Chicago is the birthplace of house music, we have a feeling his summer residency at Club Amnesia (Ibiza) trumps all other homes.
Blake is constantly in the studio, producing location-inspired tunes and running his Concentrate radio series. This is Armin’s ace right here. His trancey, progressive style of house is literally the PERFECT thing to accompany the G&D’s return.
