Black Atlass is the creation of young visionary singer/songwriter and producer Alexander Fleming. With a carefully crafted body of work delivered to the world with his first self-titled release at 17 years old, the prodigious artist has quickly turned from the underground’s best kept secret to a singular voice and vision traveling from dance floors to runways across the globe.
Not long after his initial self-released debut, his music was earning praise from the likes of Vogue and scoring Louis Vuitton ads, garnering attention from critics and fans and eventually pairing him with NYC-based label Fool’s Gold where Black Atlass delivered his first label release, the 2014 EP Young Bloods. Following the EP, he partnered up with acclaimed musician and director Woodkid and superstar model Anja Rubik for the mind-bending music video for his song “Jewels” and closed out the year with his song “Paris” featured in Yves Saint Laurent’s international men’s fragrance ad. His creative output transcends music; from design to visual arts, everything comes together as a full vision, all mediums adapt to his own universe.
After a lifelong relationship with the piano, guitar, drums, bass, and trumpet, Fleming adopted samplers and drum machines as a teenager to develop the fully-formed musical palette that can only be described as the Black Atlass sound.
Edmond Huszar (born 12 July 1989 in London, Ontario), better known by his stage name OVERWERK or Overwerk, is a Canadian DJ, producer and graphic designer. Active since 2010, his style is often described as electro or complextro, and according to LA Weekly his music combines “dramatic, orchestral passages” with “serrated synths and dive-bombing basslines.” Since 2011 he has released three EPs and several singles, designing the album covers himself. His 2014 single “Exist” was given a 10/10 score by Beatsmedia, with Vibe Magazine naming the track one of their “Top 10 Dance Music Releases Of The Week.”
OVERWERK is also known for his official remixes of songs such as “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit. “Rather Be” went on to win the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. He has toured Canada, much of Europe, and the United States, opening for artists such as Avicii and headlining festivals such as the 2012 Escapade Music Festival. He won the 2014 New Canadian Music Vista Prize, and his songs have appeared in commercials for brands such as GoPro, Gucci, Lamborghini, Chrysler, Vogue, and Fortune Magazine. He has also created the song Pressure for The Sims 4 videogame.
