Mass Manipulation by Rezz on Apple Music

8 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

The firepower of Rezz’s exhilarating debut album makes you want to grab your keys and drive. Blending bass music's intensity with techno's slick textures, it delivers all the tension and turbulence of a postapocalyptic video game without any of the splash. The rising Canadian producer is known for urgent electronic music with sharp edges and sinister tones, drawing comparisons to acts like Oliver and Gesaffelstein (“Premonition” is a joyride). But Rezz doesn’t let listeners get comfortable. Instead, she shifts gears, snaking down back roads and around dark corners (“Relax”), which is precisely what makes Manipulation so fun.

About Rezz

Rezz is the moniker of Isabelle Rezazadeh, a Canadian DJ/producer from Niagara Falls, Ontario. Born and raised in the Ukraine by her Ukrainian mother and Iranian father, she and her family moved to Canada at an early age. She also discovered music at an early age, and fell in love with EDM when she snuck into Toronto nightclubs while still in her teens. Rezazadeh began DJ'ing at age 16 and moved into making her own dark, minimal-inspired productions soon after, teaching herself the basics with online tutorials. After gaining a following from songs she posted online, Rezz attracted the attention of stars such as Skrillex and Deadmau5; in 2015, she released the Insurrection EP on Skrillex's Nest imprint, then signed to Deadmau5's Mau5trap label, making her debut with the single "Serenity." A pair of 2016 EPs -- January's The Silence Is Deafening and October's Something Is Wrong -- paved the way for her full-length debut Mass Manipulation, which arrived in August 2017 via Mau5trap. ~ Heather Phares
