REZZ-Controlaltdelight-Spotlight

FULL POST

If Gesaffelstein is Dracula then REZZ is Wednesday Adams. From the depths of Niagara Falls, Canada comes this 20 year old producer/DJ with an affinity for the darker side of electronica. Packing morbid synths and punchy kick drums, REZZ has burst onto the dark techno scene with the technical melodic prowess of a seasoned veteran. So far she’s remixed Marilyn Manson and the aforementioned Mike Levy to great effect.

 

Her original tracks have heavy 303 and garage influences with a more modern tempo and flow. The mixture of booming synths and sweeps add just the right amount of texture and layering to each record. This is especially evident in new EP Insurrection where wobbly fat synth loops and natural snares combine to put you in a head banging daze. Get lost in her rhythms.

One Tribe | Tickets

 

Advertised as a celebration of differences, One Tribe festival boasts quite the techno and house heavy lineup. The locale of Lake Perris, CA just adds to the allure. With yoga and water activities such as swimming, peddle boats, and paddle boarding soundtracked by some of the finest underground music of the past decade, we can only believe that One Tribe will step the bar up for weekender festivals of similar style. The event planners even decided to share a bundle of free music to help get listeners in the mood. The bundle features sounds from legends and fest-acts such as Gui Boratto, Jamie Jones, Tycho, Carl Craig, Doc Martin, and Damian Lazarus.

 

The 5-stage party is hosted by B3 and ID&T both of whom are involved in some of the largest events the world over (think: “How Sweet It Is” and “Amsterdam Music Festival”). Both companies were game changers when they stepped onto the scene and here’s to hoping they change it up again with One Tribe.

 

Leading into the weekend will be The Friday Night Experience hosted by the Desert Hearts crew. The fest runs through Saturday and closes early Sunday. Come prepared with comfortable clothing, water gear, and a good attitude because One Tribe is closing out Summer in style.

Lightning in a Bottle draws ever closer. And with it comes pre-parties featuring former and future Do Lab acts as well as a preview of the musical vibes you’ll be exposed to in Bradley, CA. Los Angeles’ leg of the pre-party circuit is stacked. There will be vibey beats a la Astronautica and Coyote Kisses; house-ier inclinations from Autograf and Justin Jay; glitchy bass thanks to Dimond Saints, G Jones, and Nominus; and deep playa leanings via Hoj and KMLN.

 

All in all, it’ll be an awesome dance party. For those of you who aren’t making it out to LIB, let this be your evening escape.

Since 2009, Berlin-based duo Tale of Us has been creating top-shelf minimal techno that Germany is so well known for. They had an absolutely killer essential mix appearance at the beginning of the year. Similar to “deep house” last year, this year in electronic music is looking to be the rise of the “underground” and Tale of Us is definitely in the lead pack.

 

We caught them at APEX LA last year, and we can firmly say they’ll be taking us to another world in the Yuma tent come Saturday. Find us under the shark coated in purple hues.
