The DJ and classically trained pianist released several remix tracks on his label, generating significant buzz and attracting attention from notable DJs like Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren. His 2010 debut was met with positive acclaim, peaking at No. 1 on the iTunes Dance chart and spinning in heavy rotation on Van Buuren’s State of Trance radio show. Emery’s emerging success led to his 2014 sophomore LP Drive, which featured "Concrete Angel," his most popular single to date, as well as collaborations with dance trio Krewella and UK newcomer Bo Brice.
