Earlier this week, Canadian DJ/Producer and HypnoVizion label head REZZ announced that she was releasing an upcoming goth/punk EP: IT’S NOT A PHASE which whipped her fans into a frenzy. Today, the first single: ‘Blue In The Face’ has landed and it’s everything she has promised. The Canadian bass music legend is teaming up with English experimental producer Shadient and longtime vocal collaborator fknsyd. Listen here!
Described by REZZ as “the epitome of goth,” ‘Blue In The Face‘ is an alluring track that teeters between the worlds of rock and electronic. Drawing inspiration from the hard rock and heavy metal bands that inspired her throughout her teen years, the track is an exciting venture into the grunge-tronic sounds that harness her past and present sonic influences. Her forthcoming EP taps into REZZ’s darker roots, embracing the edgy, shadowy sounds reminiscent of her childhood love of punk and emo rock.
Spiraling through layers of gritty, distorted basslines, Rezz and Shadient fuse elements of their dark bass signatures with the supernatural vocals provided by fknsyd. The result is a pervasive, unruly cross-genre original that encapsulates the nostalgic angst spawned through their masterful blending of goth rock and electronic music. ‘Blue In The Face’ serves as the first single off Rezz’s upcoming IT’S NOT A PHASE EP, out this summer.
