Productive and successful for more than a decade, Italian native artist, producer, DJ and multi-talent EDX first hit people’s radars in 1994 with various mix tapes that within weeks had circulated around the globe. With his new found fame, EDX quickly climbed up the ladder of recognition with labels and producers asking him to sprinkle his remix magic touch onto their releases.
EDX’s remix CV is impressive to say the least, with remixes on the likes of Deadmau5, Mary J Blige, Bob Sinclar, Axwell, Armand van Helden, Steve Angello, Roger Sanchez, Laidback Luke, Armin van Buuren, Kool & The Gang, Kaskade, Funkagenda, Lauryn Hill, to name but a few. His remixes consistently feature in the various charts such as the DMC Buzz, Cool Cuts and Beatport charts, which culminated in him featuring the TOP 3 for Beatport’s Best Progressive House Artist of 2009 alongside Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz.
EDX’s crazy DJ schedule has taken him around the world and back again playing to crowds in excess of 60,000 where you would hear his remixes/productions also being played by the likes of David Guetta, Armand Van Helden, Erick Morillo, Armin van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia, Roger, Sanchez, Axwell, Deep Dish, Michael Gray, Alex Gaudino, Tiësto and more. His brand, No Xcuses, has taken over the world’s FM airwaves with the No Xcuses radio show. In 2011, EDX also launched his No Xcuses residencies worldwide, which kicked off with an appearance at Playhouse Hollywood. EDX is hosting No Xcuses events at some
of the best clubs in the world including the amazing Space Ibiza where he held a residency this past summer.
In the past few years, EDX released hit after hit, continuously topping the Beatport charts. From original productions to remixes and massive collaborations to his ‘No XCuses’ compilation and radio show, all of them helped creating the perfect run-up to his debut album, set for release on the Armada Music label in 2012. The first single of the album, ‘EDX feat. Sarah McLeod – Falling Out Of Love’ will be rocking the Pilot 6 label in October 2011.
With a highly anticipated album on the horizon, as well as numerous remixes coming up, EDX will be taking 2012 by storm. Is it any wonder dance music bible Mixmag hailed him as a ‘GENIUS’?
