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.

REZZ releases ‘Falling’ featuring Underoath

REZZ releases ‘Falling’ featuring UnderoathScreen Shot 2019 06 12 At 9.54.02 AM

REZZ‘ latest installment from her EP Beyond the Senses comes in the form of an electro-inspired collaboration with metal band Underoath. True to form, the song is a midtempo steamroller riddled with heavy bass. However, “Falling” is ultimately a departure from the typical REZZ style in that her collaboration with Underoath and the addition of lyrics through the entirety of the song give the track a more punk-rock feel.

At this year’s EDC Las Vegas, REZZ debuted the track with Underoath’s drummer, Aaron Gillespie. The trend of live instruments on stage during DJ sets is gaining momentum, and this collaboration of metal and electronic was a delicious success. “Falling” seems a celebratory blend of headbanging through the ages laced with that dark REZZ signature.

All paths lead to success for REZZ, as the release of “Falling” comes after her “Dark Age” (also from Beyond the Senses) was featured on NBA finals promo video. The DJ has been on a hot streak since she stepped on the scene and only seems to be accelerating.

Good Morning Mix: REZZ’s supernatural set at EDC Las Vegas 2019

Good Morning Mix: REZZ’s supernatural set at EDC Las Vegas 2019DA WM 93

REZZ put her transcontinental cult (and undoubtedly a few unsuspecting victims) in a beautifully bemused trance this past May at the annual Las Vegas installment of Electric Daisy Carnival.

This particular witching hour is full of unearthly surprises, like warped bludgeons of wonky, free-form bass, titillating transitions (see Linkin Park “One Step Closer” into “Alien,” near the midpoint) even a nasty dose of drumstep. And you can bet your bottom dollar it’s a real REZZ riot when you hear the crowd sing along to the lyric-less, diabolical bass rhythm of “Edge.”

REZZ also took the opportunity to invite Underoath drummer/vocalist Aaron Gillespie, whom she’s formerly expressed interest in working with, onstage to perform their forthcoming collaborative track, “Falling.” The unreleased song appears on the official tracklist for REZZ’s impending EP, Beyond The Senses.

The shadow queen of beguiling mid-tempo, REZZ (real name Isabelle Rezazadeh), is the latest face from the electronic music macrocosm to transfix the largely unsuspecting world of professional sports. By way of her latest single, “Dark Age,” from her upcoming EP, Beyond The Senses, REZZ casts a blistering background behind an official promotional clip for the first game of the NBA Finals.

The ESPN-housed video went live Thursday, May 30, bolstering the Golden State Warriors/Toronto Raptors match up. Fittingly enough, the mau5trap maven is a Toronto native. She took to Twitter to express her longtime affinity for the sport, and to confirm her attendance at the game itself.
