Maurizio Colella (born 2 November 1976), better known by his stage name EDX, is an Italian DJ and producer.

He is signed to Spinnin’ Records.

Over the past few years, EDX a.k.a. Maurizio Colella has made a name for himself in the international EDM scene, …

… headlining the world’s finest clubs and festivals to crowds in excess of 60,000 – from Miami to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, São Paolo, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, Taipei, all the way to Sydney.

The chart topping Switzerland-based DJ/Producer has worked with some of the biggest names in music including Axwell, Benny Benassi, Kelis, …

… Deadmau5, Armand Van Helden, Bob Sinclar, Kool & The Gang, Kaskade, Armin Van Buuren, Steve Angello, Dubfire and many others.

His remixes have been consistently featured on various DJ charts such as the DMC Buzz, Cool Cuts and Beatport …

… and was even ranked in the TOP 3 of Beatport’s Best Progressive House Artist alongside Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz.

His involvement in the music industry began at an early age, but it is his consistent work that has made EDX an exemplary success story.

He launched his weekly radio show ‘No Xcuses’ on SIRIUS XM’s Electric Area Channel and spent summer 2011 holding a residency …

… at the world’s number one nightclub – Space, Ibiza. EDX has continued his success into 2012 with the release of his debut album, ‘On The Edge’.

He has spent about 2 years working tirelessly to create this 14 track magnum opus featuring some of the most incredible vocalists in the genre; …

… including platinum selling artist Nadia Ali, Sarah McLeod, Tamra Keenan, Hadley, Sam Obernik, John Williams and Jerique.

‘On The Edge’ has already resulted in the hit single “Give It Up For Love” feat. John Williams and future anthem “This Is Your Life” with Nadia Ali.

With ‘On The Edge,’ EDX’s musical vision finally came to fruition, yet he still aspires to evolve as an artist and further his already prolific career.

In 2013, EDX has manifested new dimensions in his production without diminishing the strong connection to his roots.

In his collaboration with Leventina for their track “The Sun,” and their remix of Helvetic Nerds’ “Blood Pressure,” …

… EDX brought out a more clubby style that was widely supported by some of the most esteemed artists in the industry: David Guetta, Afrojack, and Avicii, among many others.

In the midst of his work with Leventina, he pleased new and old fans alike by revitalizing the classic EDX progressive sound …

… on songs such as “Sunset Miracles”(Spinnin’), “Touched”(Toolroom), and “Blessed”(Toolroom).

Additionally, his most recent offering out on his own Pinkstar Records label, “Hazed,” has led him to explore sonic frontiers fit for the new age of dance music.

Moving into the tail end of Summer, he will be releasing his highly-anticipated “Acapulco At Night” remix of Cazzette’s “Weapon” …

… and his “Belo Horizonte At Night” remix of Calvin Harris’ “Thinking About You” featuring Ayah Marar.

It’s been made clear that EDX has a bright future ahead of him and will continue to reach and impress the most demanding audiences around the world.
