EDX is at the top of his game, as Swiss Icon Maurizo Collella, better known by his stage name EDX, and his production partner Christian Hirt, have the Midas Touch. Exactly one year on from its critically acclaimed worldwide release on Atlantic Records in December 2017, EDX’s Dubai Skyline remix of Charlie Puth’s smash hit ‘How Long’ received a 2019 Grammy nomination for ‘Best Remix Recording’. A Grammy Award is an award presented by The Recording Academy to recognize achievements in the music industry. EDX joins a category with fellow electronic music producers Kaskade, Cosmic Gate, Mura Masa and CID, whose remixes will go head to head at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 10, 2019.
One of the most dedicated, hard-working characters in the industry, Switzerland´s most successful DJ, producer and label head, EDX, has spent the past twenty-six years at the forefront of electronic music. Founder of the internationally renowned record company Sirup Music. His ‘NoXcuses’ radio show on iHeart (formerly on SiriusXM’s Electric Area) is currently broadcast to over 40 countries twice a week and with an international touring schedule that sees him cross multiple countries and continents each week, Maurizio has held residencies at some of the world’s most iconic clubs (Space Ibiza, Privilege Ibiza and Wynn Las Vegas to name a few) and consistently performs at the most esteemed festivals on the global circuit. EDX´s production partner Christian Hirt began his career as a producer at the age of 13. The early 90’s were his experimental years, where he came to find that electronic dance music would play the leading part in his life. He has worked with Nora En Pure, Croatia Squad, and Calippo. Christian Hirt is one of the top record producers in the world right now.
While many DJs and artists might have been anxiously awaiting for the unveiling of the 2019 Grammy Award nominees, the nominations were the last thing on EDX's mind. "I wasn't even thinking about the nominations coming. I just heard my phone while sleeping and I knew I had a lot of messages," he told Rich TVX News. "To be honest I didn't understand the depth of what had happened." EDX plans for the future are quite busy. He will be playing more shows in North America, and just launched his first ever live show concept – XIRCUIT – at Avalon, Los Angeles," There will be a lot more new music on the way," EDX hinted.
"The people who are the voters represent music professionals," says StoneBridge, International Star DJ and founder of Stoney Boy Music, a house music record label that's home to artists like Damien Hall, and Axel Hall, adding “In recent years house music has dominated major nominations, along with Hip Hop acts”, says the Grammy-nominated electronic dance DJ StoneBridge, who has created remixes for acts including Madonna and Ne-Yo and who performed sold-out concerts for feverish fans around the world, "the Grammys made them more relevant if you consider the EDX nomination, and I think they're a very high credible standard," StoneBridge said, "because they're reflecting what's going on right now." No matter what happens at the ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 10, we here at Rich TVX News think that Maurizo Collella and Christian Hirt are already the winners.
