With the 10th anniversary of Tomorrowland officially in the books and summer coming to a close, it’s time to turn our attention towards TomorrowWorld, the sister festival of the famed ID&T-produced Belgian festival. Since making its way across the Atlantic in 2013, TomorrowWorld has established itself as one of the premiere electronic dance music events in North America, right alongside festivals like EDC Las Vegas and Ultra. During its inaugural year, TomorrowWorld welcomed over 140,000 festival-goers eager to catch sets by the likes of Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, and more of the 300 other artists that were slated to play at TomorrowWorld.

Year after year, TomorrowWorld has continued to diversify its offerings, both musical and not. New to TomorrowWorld this year are activities like Breakfast Beats and Bass Bodies Workouts in DreamVille and brand new stage curators like Thomas Jack, who will be curating the first-ever tropical house stage at TomorrowWorld, and The Magician.

This year’s festival will features its biggest and best lineup to date, as artists across the entire musical spectrum will be making the trek to Chattahoochee Hills for TomorrowWorld. Main stage icons like Hardwell, Tiesto, and Armin van Buuren sit alongside underground legends like Jamie Jones, Joseph Capriatti, and the newly formed superduo, Get Real. Nearly every genre in dance music will be well-represented, from trance by Armin and Andrew Rayel, to bass music by Bro Safari and Bassnectar, to future bass by Wave Racer and Giraffage.

With so many stand-out artists on the lineup, we’ve decided to showcase a few of our favorite artists that will be playing the third running of TomorrowWorld this year. Whether it’s because of a brand new album, new live show, or just some great music, these artists are at the top of their game and know how to throw a party when they’re on stage.

The second artist we’re going to showcase is the Swiss dance music veteran, EDX.

As a twenty-year veteran of the dance music scene, Maurizio Colella, better known as the producer/DJ, EDX, has nearly seen it all. The Italian native developed a passion for the music industry early on, releasing mixtapes in 1994 that circulated the world within weeks due to its popularity. EDX used his newfound popularity to springboard his career into greater heights, as both major record labels and artists looked to the Swiss-based producer to work his magic on their music.

Early on, EDX made a name for himself in the global dance music community by delivering stand-out remixes for the likes of deadmau5, Axwell, Mary J. Blige, and more that showcased his trademark progressive style. His consistently quality remixes were not only featured on DJ charts like Beatport and DMC Buzz, but it also contributed to EDX being named one of Beatport’s Top 3 Progressive House artists, alongside legendary electronic music icons, deadmau5 and Eric Prydz.

In 2011 while he was in the midst of a summer residency at the legendary Space Ibiza nightclub, EDX premiered his very own NoXcuses radio show, solidifying his reputation as not only an superstar producer, but also as an international tastemaker. The Swiss dance authority released his debut artist album, On the Edge, in 2012, a fourteen-track masterpiece that was the culmination of two years of hard work. The release of On the Edge saw EDX fulfill his musical vision, but his tireless work effort and love for the scene has him coming back year in and year out with more stunning releases.

Following the release of his stand-out artist album, EDX experienced a shift in his musical vision – his sound evolved from his trademark progressive house style that had been a resounding success into a deeper, groovier sound that was more fitting for a club. Tracks like “Breathin’” and “Cool You Off” were his first few ventures into this new sonic territory, while others like “Remember House” and “Want You” were punchy club constructions that were resounding successes that supported EDX’s shift into a more groove-driven style.

This year, EDX has continued his steady rise with stand-out remixes for the likes of Sam Feldt and Spada. His “Indian Summer” remix of “Show Me Love” has garnered over 25 million plays on SoundCloud in just three months – an ode to the loyal following that EDX still commands – while his remix of Spada’s “Catchfire (Sun Sun Sun)” is still climbing the Beatport charts months after its release.

The Swiss house maestro will be bringing some serious groove when he graces the decks of TomorrowWorld this year. With a massive first half of 2015 under his belt, the future is bright for the tireless dance veteran, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us. Tickets to TomorrowWorld are still available here.
