Rewerk Wednesday/Dzeko

So, who likes to f@cking dance? 

If you answered hell yes to that question (hopefully everyone did), then floor-filling DJ and dance music producer Dzeko is throwing the perfect pulsating party for all of us at NOTO this Saturday night. 

Getting his strobe-lit start in the late ’00s spinning at local hot spots in his native Ontario, the rising DJ first hit it big on floors across the globe with the deliciously thunderous anthem, “Whoop” (along with Torres), which was followed by a string of rewerks, festival appearances and a budding friendship with the one-and-only Club Life connoisseur himself, Tiesto

A couple of Dzeko dance ditties for your collection are certainly his latest fire, “Heart Speak.” The chill, yet ready “In Too Deep” also gets the werk done, and we just can’t leave out the glorious anthem, “Unforgettable,” which also co-stars French Montana and Tiesto. Hey, six million streams can’t be wrong, right? 

Get lost in all of it below and then go see, err, experience Dzeko take over NOTO this weekend

And for many more ways to celebrate life and stuff as we head into March (yes), work it on out right here and here

Rewerk Wednesday/Morgan Page

“You do your body werk…”

Yes, that’s exactly what we all do whenever the hard pumping beats provided by renowned American house DJ Morgan Page get to bumpin’ and grindin’ on the floor….

…..and this Saturday night he’s about to serve up all of it with a takeover at Premier Nightclub in Atlantic City

Born and raised in Vermont, Grammy Award nominated Morgan Page kickstarted his life into the world of electronic music at the oh, so young age of 12. (Don’t we all?) A few years down the road, his mixes caught the ears of disc jockeys at local radio stations around the area and soon Page would really make a name for himself after grabbing a key slot on the University of Vermont’s top station. Oh, yeah, he was also still in high school at the time. Yes. 

It was from that career jump where Page really expanded his thirst for knowledge in the dance music universe (there’s just so much!), and it wasn’t long before he took an internship at the Plastic City dance label. And from there, well, the rest is pure strobe-lit history. Besides releasing a buffet of 12′ inch singles beginning in 2000 and still going strong today (his latest E.P., Breaking Borders, just came out a few days ago), he would also release close to a dozen albums over the next almost two decades that would serve out hit-after-hit including “Fight For You” co-starring Lissie, “Call My Name” with Tyler James and this year’s “Other Girl” featuring Rayla and “Fight My Way” with Moses Keenan. Play them all. 

But perhaps Page’s most shining piece of floor art is his throbbing and pumping rewerk of “Body Work,” a groovy 2012 number he dished out with everyone’s favorite twin sister music duo, Tegan and Sara. And although any of Page’s above listed accomplishments and club burners are certainly a good enough reason to be curious as to hear what he’s going to throw down this weekend in AC, there’s just something (okay, everything) about this remix that will make you put in that werk, hunty. 

Hey, there’s a reason why Morgan Page held down a three-year residency in Las Vegas…and it’s all going to be on display at Premier Nightclub on Saturday night. Get those tickets and then let’s fucking dance...because we must. 


Rewerk Wednesday/Zedd

“If our love is tragedy why are you my remedy……If our love’s insanity why are you my clarity?,” chants UK songstress Foxes on “Clarity,” the 2012 Grammy winning collaboration she shares with German DJ producer and beat maestro, Zedd, who’s about to straight up give it to us with a two night stint at the Electric Factory beginning tomorrow night. 

Born Anton Zaslavski in southwest Germany, the future dance floor destroyer and global dominator was raised into a musical family in which Zedd first tickled his music fancy at four-years old by taking on the acoustic guitar. It wasn’t long before he graduated to ticking the ivories and eventually moved on to playing the drums in a local band. And from there, well, the digital world soon came calling and Zedd would become the most sought after names in the dance music business in no time flat. 

Thanks to a batch of high-profile rewerks for Lady Gaga, Armand Van Helden and a handful of A-list others, Zedd served us with Clarity in 2012his first full length album that put him well on the music map and beyond. This was due to the shimmering success of sizzling singles “Spectrum” with Matthew Koma, “Stay the Night” with Haley Williams of Paramore and of course, “Clarity,” which owned the top spot on every music chart across the globe for months on end. 

A successful follow-up, True Colors, got rightfully served to us in 2015 and proved to be an even bigger success in busting charts worldwide due in part to pulsating thunderstorms, “I Want You to Know,” co-starring Selena Gomez, “Papercut” with Troye Sivan and of course the album’s hauntingly beautiful title track which Zedd shares with the Rainbow diva herself, Ms. Kesha.

And that moment he teamed up with Ariana Grande in 2014 to deliver her second My Everything single, “Break Free?” Fucking priceless. 

Of course, we just can’t leave out Zedd’s latest and greatest 2017 werk–the bass bumpin’ “Stay” with the red-hot Alessia Cara(which we all know) and “Get Low,” a somehow underrated groove (y’all just ain’t listening to it enough!) co-starring former One Direction-er, Liam Payne.


And while do hope that his latest bangers make it onto his eagerly anticipated third studio set, what we do know is that Zedd is one hell of a remarkable talent (with that “Clarity” Grammy to prove it) and that he’s going to blow the roof off of the Electric Factory over the next few days. 

Get ready, Philly.
