    Hey guys,

    I just wanted to share a relatively unknown artist with you, who I currently enjoy very much. It's Overwerk!
    He produces house, but his music is nothing like the mainstream EDM you will hear in clubs and many of us hate. His music has a certain energetic feeling to it, it often sounds similar to an epic movie soundtrack.

    Well, I myself don't really like EDM and it's repetitiveness and would say I am a pure rocker, but Overwerk showed me that EDM can in fact be really, really nice.
    To top it of, you can download every album he published for free on his bandcamp site: overwerk.bandcamp.com
    (Or of course spend some money on it, if you want to support him :D )

    Here's his introduction video, which captures the feeling of his music nicely by being reminiscent of the movie "A Space Odyssey":

    And here's a teaser he published back in 2011 shortly before he released his first EP:

    To conclude this post: Just give a listen to his most know song "Daybreak" (as it was featured in a GoPro commercial) and judge it for yourself :)

    So, give me opinions! :D

    Edit: I heard that they are rumors of a few Linkin Park fans being around here in the forums, so here's also a remix of Faint:

    Oh yeah, that's right. But personally I consider the Faint remix to be one of his weaker songs... :D

    Maybe so, but it's one of the very few house remixes of LP songs that I think are good. :)

    Yeah, I included the remix in the top post. So did you already know Overwerk?


    It's one of the most energetic songs I've ever heard :D

    Not a huge fan of that Faint remix though. Just kinda boring and there's really nothing special about it.

    Overwerk just released a new single out of his upcoming "classically inspired" EP. Very interesting! :D
