Rewerk Wednesday/Dash Berlin

Whether in their native Netherlands, on dance floors across the globe, or at NOTO this Friday night, tantalizingly trance-d up dance music trio Dash Berlin knows how to give their massive audience the music business on the dance floor. 

Consisting of friends Eelke Kalberg, Sebastiaan Molijn (both producers) and Jeffrey Sutorius (front-runner), the group got their official start in 2006 after Sutorious came up with the concept and name. With all three of these gentlemen being well versed in pretty much every genre of electronic music and influential study of musical instruments, it was no surprise that their debut ditty, “Till the Sky Falls Down,” became a massive success when it hit dance floors a decade (!!) ago.

Boy, time really flies when you’re livin’ it up in those strobe lights, doesn’t it? 

Besides taking the dance charts by storm, Dash’s freshman powerhouse club anthem not only caught the headphones’ attention of fellow DJs across the planet, but also of the legendary Armin van Buuren, who showed the single lots of love during various shows and on his very own personal playlist. This would lead Dash Berlin to hit the touring scene hard (as any DJ should do if they want to get it), and pretty much since they crash landed into our shimmering worlds, they’ve been going non-stop across the world and beyond, which is most likely the reason you’re going to be living for them this weekend.

You know you are.

Of course, you can’t own the scene without a plethora of fresh studio romps to go along with it, and over their pulsating career, Dash Berlin has released a crate full of studio albums and have served up rewerks for The Chainsmokers, Janet Jackson, Justin  Timberlake and Annie Lennox, just to name a few on their esteemed list of slay.

But since there’s no use in going on and on about all of Dash Berlin‘s accomplishments (see…this) it’s better off to just hear them all, especially when it comes to their most recent L.P., “We Are(Part 2), which features lots of thunder as well as an incredible cover of Roxette’s classic ’90s rock ballad, “Listen to Your Heart,” that you just have to get down to right about…now. 

And then get those tickets to see Dash Berlin take over NOTO this Friday...your dance music life will thank you.

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.
