REZZ Releases Hypnotic Debut Album 'Mass Manipulation'

Rezz Mass Manipulation

The wait is finally over; REZZ’s debut album Mass Manipulation is here, and it’s everything fans were hoping for. In just two years, Isabelle Rezazadeh has taken the world by storm, cultivating her own brand of dark, pumping electronic music. The undefinable characteristics of REZZ’s music allow her to stand out from the crowd and have contributed to her ever-growing, cult following of fans. Drawing elements from such genres as underground techno, hard house, and bass music, Mass Manipulation stays true to REZZ’s distinct style and solidifies her position in a category of her own. 

Mass Manipulation encapsulates the hypnotic aura REZZ creates both in her music and in her live sets. If you haven’t seen her perform live, take “Relax,” the first track off the album, as an example, and check out the video for that to get a better idea. Another common element in her music are the broken-sounding synth arpeggios we can hear in tracks like “Diluted Brains” and “Synesthesia.” The eerie, bass-heavy drops in tracks like “Green Gusher” aren’t all REZZ has to offer though; “Ascension,” for example, presents as a dark future bass tune, reminiscent of some of Porter Robinson’s work, “DRUGS!” hits us with dubstep-esque wobbling bass and bright percussion, and “Premonition” infuses REZZ’s style with acid house vibes.

Mass Manipulation takes REZZ’s production chops to another level and shows her versatility in incorporating her style into many different formats. From start to finish, we are hypnotized by haunting melodies and energetic breakdowns, unwilling to escape the dire yet captivating atmosphere REZZ has created. Her supporting tour begins in two days and will be making its way from Canada to the U.S. throughout August and September.

REZZ Drops Sinister Single "Premonition" With Rising Artist knodis

Rezz Premonition

Canadian producer REZZ has been on her game these past few months. The deadmau5-influenced artist brings a fascinatingly sinister sound to the table, a signature that has deepened with each of her 2017 releases. Just a few weeks ago we heard the first dark single, titled “Relax,” from her forthcoming album Mass Manipulation. Riding the high from that powerful original, REZZ dropped “Diluted Brains” last week along with the announcement of a stacked world tour.

Today we’re happy to be featuring the third single from this album, “Premonition” with mysterious newcomer knodis. Besides knodis' Canadian roots, not much is known about the artist. knodis has apparently produced with various artists under a past project that hasn't been revealed, with this collab alongside Rezz being the first under the new moniker. If it’s any sign of what’s to come, knodis is certainly one to watch.

“Premonition” takes things a step further from that dark sound we’ve come to know and love from REZZ. An almost robotic, wicked-sounding beat persists throughout the track, with the artists tying in some powerful otherworldly elements to create a vibe that’s both ominous and atmospheric. The producers skillfully blend in layer after layer of production, both with the alien synth builds and the haunting basslines.

This release joins REZZ’s exciting rollout for her debut album, with the producer sharing a new single every week up until the album’s release on August 4. Check out “Premonition” below and enjoy!
