Artist to Watch: REZZ

At the ripe age of 22, Isabelle Rezazadeh, better known as REZZ, is making waves within the electronic music community. After being recognized by Skrillex a few years back, REZZ has now made a name for herself. With her debut album release “Mass Manipulation,” under Deadmau5’s label mau5trap, many are beginning to take notice of the female producer. Despite her recent gain to fame, REZZ has had a solid fan-base, also known as the Cult of REZZ, whom have supported her throughout her rise to fame.

The Canadian born DJ began taking interest in electronic around the age of 13 and attended nearby music festivals, but it wasn’t until seeing a Deadmau5 livestream, that she was truly inspired to make the switch to producer. With influences such as Bassnectar, Zeds Dead, Deadmau5 and Oliver, REZZ has spearheaded what many are referring to as sinister or dark techno. Dubbed as the “Female Gesaffelstein”, REZZ is bringing something fresh to electronic music and many have taken notice.

In a recent article from Billboard, it was revealed that fellow artists such as Madeon have praised REZZ for her contributions to music referring to her as, “..the most exciting project in the world..” partly due to her, “..clear identity and sincere presence”. As REZZ continues to produce and release more music, it’s exciting to see what she’s going to do next! Until then, she is currently on tour, and I don’t know about you, but I’m not going to miss it!

To those fortunate enough to live in the SoCal area this week, REZZ will be doing a show Dec. 13th at The Observatory, Santa Ana, Dec. 14th at The Observatory North Park, San Diego, and Dec. 15th at The Novo, Los Angeles.
