It’s solidly evident that REZZ has been perpetually at work for the duration of her young, yet illustrious career. However, while Isabelle Rezazadeh began her year on a prolific note, her studio output has slowed down over the course of her spring tour. Three months after the release of her last song, “Silent Hill,” REZZ has returned to the airwaves with a remix of “Clear,” by her mau5trap compatriots No Mana and Zashanell.
For her revision, Rezazadeh opts to invert the mesmerizing, gradually progressive nature of the original track’s production through an infusion of her razor-edged synthesis and cyclic percussion; however, she doesn’t eliminate the track’s mellifluous essence. Rather, she combines the two seemingly diametric musical forces into an unpredictably complementary whole. In some areas, REZZ’s remix recalls the essence of Bassnectar’s more melodic work, but with an industrial twist – a style which she’s explored in the past with her Something Wrong Here EP.
Though some may mistakenly believe that REZZ a stranger to softer sonic elements, her latest release is a compelling reminder of her rare knack to blend the beautiful and the bellicose with remarkable seamlessness.
Woah woah woah Rezz just gifted us with one hell of a remix this wonderful Friday. She has taken on her label mate, No Mana’s fantastic track, ‘Clear’ and instilled her entire ethos within. Rezz’s take on the track is dark, twisted, complex and just absolutely gorgeous. The down tempo remix is filled with dark
In the past week illuciid has: released his first EP, mau5trap reposted his song, and he started his second semester as a college freshman. Quite the whirlwind of a week for this young producer who has less than 5 tracks out and already has the mau5trap cosign. His track ‘Summit’ is currently sitting at #2
Georgia-based promoter Shaky expanded beyond its roots in rock music last year, adding a complementary festival to its annual Shaky Knees gathering called Shaky Beats. This new member of the brand’s family catered to a younger demographic, assembling a hip-hop and EDM-centric lineup featuring Carnage, Porter Robinson, and more to ring in the new event’s premiere. Unsurprisingly, Shaky Beats turned out to be a widely accepted and successful addition to the Atlanta festival repertoire which saw thousands of enthusiastic fans attending it.
After announcing its continued presence in the Georgian music sphere, Shaky Beats has now unleashed the lineup for its second event, which will be taking place at the same location of Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park from May 5-7. The Chainsmokers, Kaskade, Zeds Dead, and more are some of the more high-profile names on the roster, while Claude VonStroke, Bonobo, and REZZ will be serving up flavors from the underground. In addition, rising bass act Illenium will also be joining the fray for a special live performance.
My musical taste suffers from attention deficit disorder. Some may even say it’s schizophrenic. One week I like softer more melodic beats, and the next I am bassfaced in the middle of the pit. Lately, I have been in a darker zone musically. Enter Machete, and his new track The Exorcist. This track is a
Note from the editor: This article is a collaborative piece between two authors Ulises and Jim who both focused on different aspects of the event. When I first walked through the gates of Countdown New Year’s Eve on Friday night, I stood frozen. Not because of the freezing temperatures (Ok, it was about 60 degrees
Two power players that have come out in 2017 are undoubtedly Rezz and K?d. With their eclectic and infectious musical styles, they’ve each gained their own group of relentlessly dedicated fans.
To add more fuel to the fire, it was teased over a week ago that the two have a collaboration due out in 2017. With Rezz’s simplistic, techno/bass style and K?d’s own Porter-esque sensibilities, we can only imagine what kind of beast these two can produce together.
Rezz, who was picked as edmsauce’s Best New Artist of 2016, and fellow new artist k?d (pronounced kid), have teamed up on a track together. Rezz is known for her darker, more hypnotic, music. Fellow newcomer k?d burst on the scene showcasing amazing remix’ of top tier artists such as Daft Punk, Porter Robinson, and
Few artists young or old had as momentous a rise in 2016 as Isabelle Rezazadeh. As REZZ, the Canadian wunderkind released two sensational EPs on mau5trap, crafted a number of expertly-woven mixes, and further expanded her ever-growing “Cult of REZZ.” Though the prodigious producer had already begun building her legacy prior to 2016, Rezazadeh’s accomplishments in the past year made her a shoe-in for our “Breakout Artist of the Year” award. Excitingly, REZZ has announced that she has a collaboration on the way with another rising new talent – the elusive k?d.
Though k?d launched his career just a year ago, the young artist has proven his talent and garnered a quickly growing fanbase through his skillfully-arranged future bass remixes of major artists’ hits, including Daft Punk and Panda Bear’s “Doing it Right” and Porter Robinson’s “Sad Machine.” So far, the only details the artists have given us is that the collaboration will be released in 2017. Listen to 2016 highlight tracks from the two producers below.
