One of our favorite artists in dance music is EDX. As a member of the scene for 20 years now, he has masterfully moved between traditional genre boundaries while still staying true to the “EDX sound” that we all know and love. Through the years, he has accomplished an impressive number of achievements, from the highly-anticipated release of his debut artist album, On the Edge, in 2012, to the release of multiple chart-dominating hits like “Cool You Off,” and “Reckless Ardor,” to being featured as one of Beatport’s Top 3 Progressive House artists in 2009 alongside dance music legends Eric Prydz and deadmau5.
Recent years have seen EDX undergo a sonic shift from his classic progressive style that had defined him for the early part of his career to a deeper sound, as seen in his releases like “Cool You Off” and his chart-topping remix of Enormous Tunes label mates Sons of Maria and Nora en Pure’s track “Uruguay.” 2015 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the Italian-born music maestro, and in honor of EDX’s massive upcoming year, we have put together some of our favorite musical moments from EDX’s career.
First up on the list is a live set at the iconic Las Vegas venue, Marquee Nightclub. If you’ve ever seen EDX live, you know that his shows are a one-of-a-kind experience that not only showcases his impressive mixing ability, but also highlights his reputation as a worldwide tastemaker. Even though EDX is known for his melodic, progressive house style, his set at Marquee transcends traditional genre boundaries, as he masterfully glides between progressive, electro, and big room house with ease.
One of our favorite EDX music videos was his emotional depiction of his track, “Reckless Ardor.” Characterized by its catchy chord progressions, whomping bass line, and ethereal vocals that all come together to fill the track with emotion, “Reckless Ardor” lulls listeners into a deep, hypnotic groove. The music video captures the emotions in the track, and it follows the story of two lovers that ultimately ends in tragedy.
The release of “Air For Life” in 2014 signaled a new sonic direction for EDX, as he danced between different sub-genres like deep house and tech-house without departing too far from his progressive house roots. With “Air For Life,” EDX delivers a stunning track with beautifully uplifting melodies and gentle, calming drum patterns that give the track a lighthearted air.
EDX closed out 2014 strong with his Collateral Effects EP, one of our favorite EDX EPs to date. The name track on the EP, “Collateral Effects,” features a groovy beat layered under soothing male vocals and infectiously catchy hi-hat patterns to give this track a beautiful complexion, making it one of our favorite releases out of the Swiss producer’s camp.
The last of our selects is a very special No Xcuses podcast that was presented by us. EDX began his weekly radio shows in 2011, and every week, he unveils some of his favorite tracks of the week together with a number of his forthcoming releases. His No Xcuses show has passed over 200 episodes, solidifying EDX’s status as a worldwide tastemaker.
Alternative band, Little Daylight, gets a 2.0 rework of their track “My Life.” Remixed by Atlanta duo, Halogen, the groovy house rendition has a futuristic vibe filled with build ups, percussions, chopped vocals and a hypnotizing beat.

Previously tackling tracks from Basement Jaxx, Ellie Goulding, Empire of the Sun and many more, Halogen members Alex and Josh, strayed away from their typical path with their latest.
