We made our Echostage return for that venue’s debut of the rising Canadian disc jockey Isabelle Rezazadeh aka Rezz! Rezz put on a great show last Saturday.
Raised in Ontario,Canada by Ukranian and Iranian parents, Rezz began DJ-ing at the age of 16. She started off playing other artists tunes until she decided to produce her own records. This paid off as she would come to receive notice from Skrillex initially via twitter and signed on the dot for a spot on OWSLA. After about a year, she would continue to gain notice from other prominent forces in the scene including DeadMau5’s record label “Mau5trap”!
Her performance at Echostage was a great relief for many fans who were unable to see her as she was one of the missed acts due to the rain delay at Moonrise Festival this past summer in Baltimore. The young phenom has taken the dance world by storm with her dark sinister sounds from her EPs “Insurrection” and “Silence Is Deafening” and now she unleashed the greatest from her debut album Mass Manipulation. A fitting title for her album, as this night she would have her way with the ears of DC!

The venue was packed to the brim with delighted souls eager to hear the bass bumping babe’s latest and greatest from her new album. It started off as a brisk fall night until Rezz brought the heat. She set the stage when she started the set with one of her most notable songs, “Edge.” The bass was hypnotizing the hearts of head-banging fans to the rest of us left in a trance — and from this moment, we knew that the night would be one we would not forget. Crafting her songs together at times so that they would blend seamlessly, it was musical therapy as we came to expect… but nobody was prepared for how she made the whole room feel one united in one big feeling of euphoria.
EDMit it Rating: 9.6/10
Rezz deserves nothing but Rezz-pect in the dance music world as her music and her hardwork speaks for her. The career is still young for her as she starts to climb the ranks of the world’s greatest DJs, and I would not be surprised to see her finishing high on the top of the DJ Mag charts as one of the highest new artist to premier.
