Emerson also emerged as a much sought-after remix talent, with remixes for such diverse acts as The Chemical Brothers and Björk. Darren parted ways with Underworld in 2000 to concentrate more on his solo career as a DJ and remixer and also as a label owner. "Global Underground: Uruguay" (2000) and "Global Underground: Singapore" (2001) soon followed on the Global Underground label, with "Episode 1" on his new Underwater label following in 2002. He continued to release tracks by himself and new artists on the Underwater record label and eventually gained its own night at super club Pacha, Ibiza alongside fellow DJ Erick Morillo, to hold a joint Underwater/Subliminal Records night. During its second summer at Pacha, his Underwater Records night won 'House Event' of the summer at the DJ Magazine awards.
After its success, Emerson decided to host its own full night at Pacha, Ibiza which became an extremely popular night on the island. Over the past few years, Emerson has been busy touring the world whilst preparing for his own solo debut album. Rarely playing in the UK apart from his bi-monthly resident slot at London club The End, he still finds time to release an annual Underwater Records compilation every summer. In 2007 he performed at Sensation White in the Amsterdam Arena. In 2008, Darren released another compilation for Global Underground - Bogota. In 2010 he launched a new record label DETONE, on which he has so far released the club tracks Gracelands and Decisions.
