In a mere two years since releasing his first EP, 24-year-old Canadian producer Edmond "Overwerk" Huszar has taken the EDM world by storm with a sound that's two parts Justice and one part Hans Zimmer. Mixing dramatic, orchestral passages with the usual serrated synths and dive-bombing basslines, Overwerk tracks such as "Daybreak" and the aptly named "Conquer" make you feel as if you're storming the dancefloor with a Middle-Earth army at your back. It's a sound that has attracted both brands and bros: Overwerk's most epic tracks have been licensed by everyone from Lamborghini to Prada to GoPro cameras. At his best, Huszar balances the big-room dynamics of electro with a film composer's attention to emotion and detail, creating builds and drops that feel more well-earned and exhilarating than those of most EDM crowd-pleasers. This is his first time playing L.A. but certainly not his last.
