Shambhala Music Festival has quickly become one of the most celebrated alternatives to the typical electronic music massive - and while it owes much of its reputation to its friendly atmosphere, its lineup also features its fair share of unconventional acts. Rezz would stand out as one of this year's spirited additions, and even if you weren't able to attend one vigilant fan recorded a video of almost her entire set.
The Mau5trap innovator started her Friday set on a subtle enough note, playing little more than atmospheric samples and sound effects for several minutes. It didn't take long before her unmistakeable trademark style made itself known, however, taking the crowd in front of the Pagoda stage along with her on a dark, introspective journey.
Rezz is difficult to categorize, which you might argue is what sets her a cut above the average electronic music artist. The 21-year-old producer hasn't even been making music for three full years, but her synthesis between techno, glitch, downtempo and dubstep is conceptually unlike much else on the market.
Shambhala Music Festival took place in British Colombia, but Rezz will make a trip to the other side of the globe for two final August tour dates in Shanghai and Seoul. Until she resumes with a performance at Dancefestopia in Kansas City on September 9th, keep an eye on her for new releases.
