Originally, Edmond Huszar was a graphic designer, working freelance and on a few side projects he had organized into a portfolio entitled “overworked”. But in a turn of “pure fate and experimentation,” the 22-year-old discovered he possessed a knack for music production, dropped his design career, and took up a DJ name that would pay homage to both his beginnings as well as the inspiration to his future, his icons, the bass-heavy, German electronic band Kraftwerk.

“Less Go Over Werk It” shows off a bit of his dubstep and mashup skills (sweet transition at 1’45”), while “Buzzin’,” a hot new single off his forthcoming EP, The Nth°, is straight-up Overwerk stylin’, plain and simple.

♬ Overwerk – Less Go Over Werk It
♬ Overwerk – Buzzin’

And in case you weren’t impressed enough, some of the remixes he’s produced are even more magnificent…

♬ Mord Fustang – Magic Trooper (OVERWERK Remix)

Been on a bit of a Kaskade bender ever since the drop of Fire & Ice, but honestly the singles that preceded the release were better than most of the rest on there.. So I’d just like to give a huge highfive to Le Castle Vania, a 26yo Georgia-boy who just dropped a really sweet remix of Turn It Down that, in spite of the title, requires you to turn it up. Just LISTEN to that solo at 2’17″…. EPIC!! Thanks @ BlahBlahBlahScience for the awesome share !

♬ Kaskade – Turn It Down (Le Castle Vania Remix)
Backup Get-Down: ♬ Cee-Lo Green – Fuck You (Le Castle Vania Remix)

Alex Gaudino… alex gaudino… Ah, yes.. the memories of those heehaw-ing echoes of “Destination Calabria” bouncing off the walls of every club ’round the world in 2007 are coming back to me… Well Gaudino’s dropped another anthemic remix, The Wanted’s “Glad You Came”. Dance away! As backup, JapWOW’s courteously updated our Destination with a bit of a new spin.

♬ The Wanted – Glad You Came (Alex Gaudino remix)
Backup Get-Down: ♬ Alex Gaudino – Destination Unknown (JapWOW Remix)

Happy dancing!

A big thanks to my buddy Keylime, at JamzNotJelly.com, for tuning me into this adolescent hipster duo. Autoérotique, the team of Toronto-natives Keith Robertson and Dave Henderson, produce some crazy stuff. Self described, after starting “as indie band producers, they hop-scotched over to dance music after receiving a marijuana-lubricated epiphany to Groove Armanda’s first album at the tenderized age of 17—only to be swallowed whole by the city’s burgeoning dance scene.” Quite a story, fellas.

The reason I post this?  Well if there’s anything you should know about me by now it’s that I’m a sucker for high-definition slow-motion capture; completely hypotized; sh*t’s amazing.  So combine this vid with the moombahton kick I’ve been on and I was sold on the spot when I heard the remix.  Honestly even more amazing is Keylime’s find of the Autoérotique remix to Tiësto’s new “Work Hard, Play Hard”– a seriously masterly work. (And agreed, so much better than the original!)

In just three short weeks, señor Tiësto is coming to New York City, and despite a grand tour of South America at hand, he continues to drop amazing mixes, including this one to give Fedde a run for his money…

A good festival recap vid sends shivers down my spine as the memories come flooding back — the friends, the music, the dancing; the weather, the time, the place — suddenly I’m walking the trampled parade-grounds of eZoo once again, hearing the echoes of Afrojack and Armin bouncing across the lawns…

★ Wynter Gordon – Invisible (Kaskade Remix)
♬ Swedish House Mafia – Save The World (Zedd Remix)

Here’s a runnerup Electric Zoo vid. I guess I’m obsessed.

♬ Calvin Harris – Feel So Close (Nero Remix)
★ Shift Four and Dirtyrock – More Unfamiliar ft. David Reed (Original Mix)

While I didn’t attend this festival, it just. looks. EPIC. Paris Hilton guest-DJing?! Okay well that part looks cheesy. But whatever. Next year…

♬ Porter Robinson – The Wildcat

Sometimes you need a song that just helps you breathe a little easier. Here’s one such tune, by “Koreless” of the U.K.. Interesting stuff.

★ Koreless – MTI
