REZZ unabashedly delivers her finest mix to date on debut Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 [Stream]Rezz 11

There’s something incredibly legitimizing about an electronic artist’s first Essential Mix. It’s a level up from one’s current echelon into certified “industry heavyweight” status, and now it’s officially REZZ‘s moment to shine. The undisputed queen of mid-tempo bass, REZZ has long been carving out a formidable name for herself on the international dance circuit, garnering a cultish worldwide following behind a catalog of infectiously strange, gripping sonics.

REZZ’s BBC debut came in 2017 during one of deadmau5‘s residency sessions. After gracing the airwaves during the first hour of her mentor’s mix, it was clear REZZ was bound for her own Essential Mix in the near future. Now, she’s delivered, and she’s kept strictly to her own catalog of work throughout the battering two-hour session.

The Stronach Group, The Maryland Jockey Club, and Club Glow evince the power inherent in collaboration via their presentation of the first phase of the 2019 Clubhouse Festival lineup. Jointly produced by the three entities, the event’s second annual installment touts the artistic trappings of a strong sequel to Clubhouse’s inaugural edition: REZZ, Madeon, Two Friends, and Elephante.

The electronic talent that Clubhouse features, however, will be but one component of the festival. Clubhouse 2019 will concurrently host the Maryland Million when it returns to Laurel Park race track on October 19. With a one-day stakes card offering purses totaling one-million USD, the Maryland Million showcases nominated stallions in the state in a thoroughbred horse race. This facet alone distinguishes Clubhouse as the sole event to merge horse racing with a music festival in the region.

“We’re excited to bring Clubhouse Festival back for the second year as part of the Maryland Million Day. Building on the success of last year, Clubhouse Fest is back to combine world-class racing with an elevated entertainment experience featuring the best in music and brand new immersive food and beverage offerings.”

Jimmy Vargas, Executive Vice President, Entertainment, The Stronach Group

Clubhouse Festival will additionally cater to craft beer enthusiasts via the introduction of its Beats & Brews Greenhouse, stocked with a selection of Maryland’s top craft brews. Those who are 21 years of age and older will have the opportunity to take part in unlimited beer tastings, while enjoying expedited entry through a dedicated admission lane, private charging stations, air-conditioned VIP bathrooms, a premium stage viewing area, and a private VIP viewing area dedicated to the Maryland Million race day action, among other amenities.

Tickets to Clubhouse Festival’s second iteration are now on sale, and can be purchased here.

REZZ‘s upcoming Beyond The Senses EP has become one of the most highly anticipated electronic releases of the year. The six-track EP, which already features contributions from Deathpact and Underoath, aims to convey more than just an auditory experience. The star mau5trap recruit is putting forward perhaps her most technically ambitious collection to date, marked by a boundary-pushing virtual reality component to the release. So it only makes sense that the EP’s official listening party would also be hosted in VR, so the masses can join in for a virtual first listen of REZZ’s latest.

In conjunction with The Wave XR and Strangeloop, each track on Beyond The Senses was made alongside a VR counterpart. On July 23, each of the EP’s VR worlds will be brought together for a stream of the concert that all fans are invited to join.

The listening party will go live at 3:00 p.m. PST (6:00 p.m. EST, 11:00 p.m. GMT). The live VR listening party will be available for viewing in virtual reality or via the PC desktop app on Wave, Oculus, or listeners can tune in live via Facebook, Youtube, or Twitch.

REZZ inches closer to EP release with ‘Kiss Of Death,’ featuring Deathpact

REZZ inches closer to EP release with ‘Kiss Of Death,’ featuring DeathpactRezz Red Rocks Full Set Stream 1

As REZZ‘s Beyond The Senses release date draws dangerously near, the Canadian mid-tempo conjurer has released another preternatural fragment from the soon-expected EP.

The third single from the impending project, “Kiss Of Death,” arrives at the ears like an infernal peck from a hellion razor blade. Electronic music’s femme fatale packs the offering with dastardly kicks and deep, grumbling synths, as flippant smooch samples add an oddly endearing animation to the fervent foray.

The Deathpact-assisted collaboration follows the producers’ 2018 effort, “Life & Death,” which appeared on REZZ’s Certain Kind Of Magic LP. The release follows Beyond The Senses singles “Dark Age” and “Falling,” the latter of which features crossover assistance from Underoath. The EP is expected to arrive in full July 24, accompanied by a subsequent world tour.

REZZ has been quite vocal about expanding her already prolific sonic catalog this year. She’s positioned to release her next EP, Beyond The Senses, by the end of this month, July 24, to be precise. In anticipation for the release, she’s cooking up a two-hour BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix chock-full of REZZ originals only, both old and new.

The weekly radio show has featured some of the most eminent envoys in the electronic macrocosm as guests throughout its vast tenure on the British airwaves, including offerings from Eric Prydz, Carl Cox, and Daft Punk, just to offer a fragmentary window into the series’ hallowed archives.

REZZ first appeared on the channel alongside mau5trap label boss, deadmau5, back in 2017, on behalf of his BBC Radio residency. However, the upcoming appearance will mark her debut Essential Mix effort.

The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival is cancelled

The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival is cancelledDiplo

Just over a week before the upcoming installment of Mad Decent Block Party, the label/event brand took to Facebook to confirm the festival’s imminent cancellation.

The rather nebulous announcement attributes the decision to “circumstances beyond our control,” hindering organizers from throwing the festival “the way that it was envisioned.” The hallowed annual event has been a longtime vessel for Mad Decent to show off its illustrious label roster, as well as gather extraneous, up-to-date talent from across the electronic/hip-hop continuum.

This year’s July 20-21 Block Party, pegged to land in Foxborough, Massachusetts, was scheduled to see scene staple performances from the likes of REZZ, Major Lazer (which includes Mad Decent label boss, Diplo himself), RL Grime, Zeds Dead, Billie Eilish, and more across the weekend. Per the announcement, Mad Decent will be issuing refunds to all ticket-holders on or before July 12.
