EDX unveils Miami Sunset Remix of Spada's Catchfire (Sun Sun Sun)


Out Now: 

EDX's "Miami Sunset" remix of Spada’s “Catchfire (Sun Sun Sun)” dis now available to buy via Ego Music.  With his remix of Sam Feldt’s “Show Me Love” still riding high on the Beatport charts, and garnering even more support as the fifth most Shazam-ed track of this Ibiza season, EDX returns with some serious wind behind his sails for his Ego Music debut.

EDX is a multi-faceted artist, and his numerous production styles shine through in his newest effort. By layering together a piano-driven melody with a deep bass line and uplifting synth arrangements, EDX manages to create a remix of “Catchfire” that walks a fine line between punchy club construction and summertime anthem, finding a perfect middle ground.

Coming off of performances at EDC Las Vegas and Paradiso, EDX looks to continue his steady rise to the top of the totem pole with quality release after quality release, and a rigorous touring schedule that has him playing high profile nightclubs, and major festivals around the globe on his ongoing “Want You” tour. In the past six months alone, EDX has a Beatport chart-topper to his name with his remix of Sons of Maria and Nora en Pure’s “Uruguay,” and he isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. With a highly anticipated single on the way, the future is bright for EDX.


Pleasurekraft & Tiger Stripes present 'Primed' [Kraftek]



Release Date:  

20th July

Having collaborated on a string of releases and remixes including Cajmere's 'Satisfy', as well most recently featuring on Kraftek's '3x3' EP, label owners Pleasurekraft have once again teamed up with Swedish producer and DJ Tiger Stripes for their latest collaborative release, 'Primed'. 

Scheduled for release on July 20th via Kraftek, 'Primed' continues a solid working relationship between the two parties and brings together their distinct tastes for techno-driven rollers and warped vocal samples. Built around a solid, pulsating groove, the track builds amidst a deft percussive backdrop, amplified by abstract bass sounds and twisted vocoder samples.
Pefectly balanced, it exudes a classy, robust energy for the dance floor and taps into a sound that both artists have undeniably made their own.
