Okay I need to preface this article with how much I love OVERWERK. A few years ago I was introduced to his music with his remix of Wolfgang Gartner's ‘Space Junk'. It was such an exciting track at the time and a huge improvement on the original. Ever since then I have continued to follow OVERWERK and waited patiently for a tour that had dates in America. Finally the canadian born producer has announced a full US tour with dates all over the country.
If you are not familiar with OVERWERK's music you need to take the time to visit his Soundcloud and poke around. His sound is unique to say the least, but also hard and euphoric as well as over the top catchy. Whenever he releases a new song I have to mentally prepare myself for it to be stuck in my head for the next few days. His latest work, a remix of Clean Bandit's ‘Rather Be', is just amazing. The way he works in his own style of sound design into the vocals and melody is fascinating.
OVERWERK is kicking off his tour in Seattle on Independence Day and wrapping it up over a month later in New York City. This is his first multi-event American visit and with a new single in the works by the name of ‘Exist' the entire tour is bound to be filled with new music and good times. You can purchase tickets through Want Tickets here. So make sure you get your tickets today and get ready for a wild summer night when this producer/DJ visits your home town.
