They say that it takes 10,000 hours to become a true master at something, which makes EDX one step up from a master. As a twenty-year mainstay in electronic music, EDX has seen it all – the ups, the downs, and most recently, electronic music’s gradual crossover into the mainstream. The Swiss dance authority has managed to stay relevant through it all, first by sticking true to the trademark sound that he developed, and now, he’s managed to do so by staying one step ahead of the masses and evolving with the genre.
His latest track, “Revered,” is a venture into the depths of deep house and tech-house, styles that EDX hasn’t typically dabbled in, but when you’ve been doing something for as long as he has, it’s clear that his production abilities are endless.
A tribal-influenced drum sequence sets the foundation for the track, as a hypnotic vocal takes your hand and guides you through tech-y synth stabs and a thumping bass line. “Revered” is a double-edged sword, walking a fine line between an Ibiza club anthem and a summertime smash.
