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.

“Summer, summer, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
Here it is the groove slightly transformed
Just a bit of a break from the norm
Just a little somethin’ to break the monotony
Of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be
A little bit out of control it’s cool to dance
But what about the groove that soothes that moves romance
Give me a soft subtle mix
And if ain’t broke then don’t try to fix it
And think of the summers of the past
Adjust the bass and let the alpine blast
Pop in my CD and let me run a rhyme
And put your car on cruise and lay back cause this is summertime
School is out and it’s a sort of a buzz
But back then I didn’t really know what it was
But now I see what happened is
The way that people respond to summer madness
The weather is hot and girls are dressing less
And checking out the fellas to tell ’em who’s best
Riding around in your jeep or your Benzos
Or in your Nissan sitting on lorenzos
Back in Philly we’d be out in the park
A place called the plateau is where everybody goes
Guys out hunting and girls doing likewise
Honking at the honey in front of you with the light eyes
She turns around to see what you beeping at
It’s like the summer’s a natural aphrodisiac
And with a pen and pad I compose this rhyme
To hit you and get you equipped for the summer time
It’s late in the day and I ain’t been on the court yet
Hustle to the mall to get me a short set
Yeah I got on sneaks but I need a new pair
Cause basketball courts in the summer got girls there
The temperature’s about 88
Hop in the water plug just for old times sake
Break to ya crib change your clothes once more
Cause you’re invited to a barbeque that’s starting at 4
Sitting with your friends cause y’all remincise
About the days growing up and the first person you kiss
And as I think back makes me wonder how
The smell from a girl could spark up nostalgia
All the kids playing out front
Little boys messin round with the girls playing double-dutch
While the DJ’s spinning a tune as the old folks dance at your family
Then six o’clock rolls around
You just finished wiping your car down
It’s time to cruise so you go to the summertime hangout
It looks like a car show
Everybody come lookin real fine
Fresh from the barber shop or fly from the beauty salon
Every moment frontin’ and maxin’
Chillin in the car they spent all day waxin’
Leanin’ to the side but you can’t speed through
Two miles an hour so everybody sees you
There’s an air of love and of happiness
And this is the Fresh Prince’s new definition of summer madness”

Hailing from the great land down under, Australian born life/house DJ Hook N Sling (real name-Anthony Maniscalco) kicked off his now thriving career with a residency at a friend’s bar in Sydney before crafting and perfecting a trademark big-room sound that would launch him to DJ heights on both his homeland and stateside dance floors.
While building up a name for himself in the local club circuit of Sydney, Maniscalco also penned a deal with Australian house label Hussle Recordings, where he would release a handful of recordings including, “Take You Higher,” which became a monster club smash around the world and still has all of the ingredients to get the club lifted whenever it comes on….which is like every weekend.
Also on Hook N Sling’s roster is the ravishing “Reason,” co-starring Nervo, “Love On Me,” a glorious anthem for the ages and “Open Your Eyes,” his latest strobe lit sonnet with “Hot Skin” maestro Sam Feldt, all of which are featured on this playlist of grooves by the loud Australian DJ which you should bump-n-grind to right now if you’re trying to heat things up on this chilly Rewerk Wednesday evening.
