2016 has been good to Rezz to say the least. The purveyor of downtempo tech glitch (yeah, that’s what we’re gonna call it) has exploded in popularity over the course of this year’s festival season, and her latest DJ mix and interview has afforded her the opportunity to reach an even wider audience.
The mix, which appeared in a recent Mixmag feature, consisted of just under an hour of Rezz’ subversive brand of electronic music - as well as selects from the likes of Metric and Gesaffelstein. It kicks off with she and Raito’s August collaboration, “Alien,” and even features what appear to be unreleased IDs.
In addition, Rezz took the time to answer a handful of questions posed by MIxmag, discussing topics ranging from her creative musings to being an electronic music icon at 21. Most notably, although she’s often been compared to Gesaffelstein she maintained that she arrived at her style independently of his influence, remarking, “A lot of people have said that I sound like Gesaffelstein, but the thing is - and this is the truth - I was making that sound way before I knew who Gesaffelstein was"
Aside from that, the interview sheds light on numerous facets of Rezz’ personality and lifestyle. After cueing up the mix in the Mixcloud player above, read it in full by clicking here.
