After receiving tremendous support from deadmau5 and signing to his mau5trap label, REZZ has become the kind of fresh faced producer you can’t seem to escape over the last year. This week, she’s released her latest offering, a six track EP titled Something Wrong Here that comes packed with her unique brand of unsettling techno.
Opener “Purple Gusher” kicks the new collection off with a bang, as a plucky melody carves out a slow riding rhythm. A dark synth sequence begins to play out over four on the floor rhythms, leading into minimalist drops with stuttering, staccato bass stabs and growling electronics layered over the steady pounding of the drums.
“Selector” keeps the techno vibes going with wobbly synths and mechanical rhythms, while “Melancholy” switches things up with a somber vocal collaboration featuring Laura Brehm. “Cryptic,” meanwhile, delivers horror tinged melodies and muted bass tones over scattered rhythms, followed by the shuffling synth sequences and haunting bell motifs of “Voice In The Wall.”
“Paranoid” brings the EP to a fitting close with its dark ambience, discordant melodies and gothic choir-like pads. The heavy chugging of the bass over pummelling percussion quickly takes over, as rising synths bring the tune to a frenzied climax.
With her new EP, it isn’t hard to see why deadmau5 has been so keen on REZZ‘s music. Balancing strong production values with dark, industrial rhythms and pummelling synths, she’s developed a recognizable sound that’s all her own.
The Something Wrong Here EP is available now via mau5trap and can be purchased here.
