REZZ Releases Debut Album ‘Mass Manipulation’

Rezz has grown to be one of the most popular Bass/Trap DJs in the electronic music scene, and at just such a young age, she’s already accomplished a lot.

The 22-year-old DJ started producing in 2013 and quickly boomed into one of the hottest female producers in the EDM scene. Some of her biggest influences are deadmau5, who eventually signed her after discovering her online. She also finds inspiration from Gesaffelstein, Alesia, Amon Tobin, Eskmo, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights and many more.


After teasing her fans by dropping singles such as “Relax” and “Diluted Brains” from her debut album, REZZ has finally released Mass Manipulation. After spending years studying psychology and music production at him in Niagara Falls, the album is the product of many happy accidents.

A study in hypnosis, influence and the mesmeric nature of music experience, this opus is an astonishing first offering from someone who only opened Ableton three years ago. In that short time, REZZ has already garnered considerable support from the likes of Billboard, Mixmag and Dancing Astronaut, and has played coveted slots at festivals including Ultra, EDC and Bonnaroo. With a sound that has been likened to French superstars Gesaffelstein and Justice, she has broken through the underground, landing on international stages.




“‘Mass Manipulation’ is a commentary on how easily our minds can become manipulated by the things we consume in society. We consume heavily through the media, which, in turn, tries to curate our thoughts and dictate how we as humans are supposed to live and behave. This album plays off this idea and invites people to become hypnotized, allowing their brains to be manipulated by my music in the hope they might see things through a new perspective (perhaps an outer world viewpoint). One where everyone is free from the unrealistic expectations planet earth has drawn for them. A world of acceptance and hypnosis,” revealed REZZ.


Through experimenting with heavy bass samples and unusual melodies, and collaborating with emergent producers 13, Knodis and Kotek, REZZ found she had eight powerful tracks she wanted to share. The eerie speech at the start of “Relax” seduces the listener into an intensely sinister, but altogether alluring state of inertia as we prepare to enter this truly mind-altering body of work. With the powerful kicks of “Diluted Brains,” the menacing, bass-driven “Premonition,” and the exotic flourishes in “Drugs!” REZZ infiltrates the minds of her listeners.



“Synaesthesia” expounds on the dub-heavy sounds heard in the previous track, a theme that is, through the heavy, subdivided beats in “Livid” and “Green Gusher,” manipulated slowly to bring the soundscape more within the grasps of experimental techno. With “Ascension,” the listener is brought rudely back to consciousness; this track is the amalgamation of everything that’s come before it, yet strangely distorted and warped, reflecting the transitional nature of hypnosis.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and David Guetta Team Up With “Complicated” ft. Kiiara

With a string of hit singles under their name, such as “Higher Place” and “Hey Baby,” Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have hit No. 1 spots in Billboard Magazine’s Dance Charts. They’ve also collaborated with the music industry’s hottest artists such as Ne-Yo, Diplo, Martin Garrix Steve Aoki and many more. Now, the duo got together with another big producer, David Guetta for a hot new track.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have signed a long-term deal with Epic Amsterdam, the international label of Sony Music Entertainment Netherlands, and will be releasing their newest single, “Complicated” featuring Kiiara along with David Guetta, on July 28. The Belgian brothers have crafted an irrefutable stylistic party anthem that is sure to be another chart climbing hit for all parts of this collaborative effort.



“We’re really excited to have signed with Sony Music. The label is one of the most iconic identities in the history of the music industry and has been a driving force behind so many musical figures across rock, pop, hip hop and more recently electronic music. It’s a proud moment for us to be joining the lineage of Sony Music artists,” said Dimitri Vegas.



Guetta and Kiiara both bring their indubitable style and feel to “Complicated,” and with Dimitri and Mike’s impact, the track segues between a festival-ready crowd-chanting anthem and a unavoidable drive time radio hit.



“Our focus has always been about reactivity as we strive to create exciting dance records that we and our fans love,” said Like Mike. “On one hand, we fill stadiums and reach fans in-person with live spectacles that we grow with new elements each time, but on the other hand we’re also creating a long-lasting irrefutable dance anthems that fill the radio charts across the globe.”

SoundCloud Lays Off Employees And Closes Offices

SoundCloud was one of the fastest growing music streaming platforms and most influential musicians released a lot of music on it. Now, it is shrinking, and faces a harsh future in the online music market. Closing offices in London and San Francisco, SoundCloud has reportedly laid off nearly half it’s workforce, letting go 40% of it’s staff. According to CEO Alexandra Ljung, this move will ensure its “long-term, independent success.”
“By reducing our costs and continuing our revenue growth, we’re on a our path to profitability and in control of SoundCloud’s independent future,” said Ljung in a blog post.

There has been speculation spreading throughout the music industry that SoundCloud might be for sale at a value lower than the $1 billion it has sought in the past. SoundCloud has become a streaming giant with 175 million regular users, making it one of the most popular music sites in the world, but it also faced pressure from record labels to sign licensing deals and develop a paid subscription model to compete with Spotify and Apple Music.

Executives feel that the lay-offs is part of a strategic plan to “cost cutting, continued growth of [their] existing advertising and subscription revenue streams, and a relentless focus on our unique competitive advantage – artists and creators.” Ljung revealed that 173 staffers were let go with those remaining shifted into the Berlin and New York offices.  There have been serious and widely reported problems including losses verging on $100 million from 2014 to 2015, but SoundCloud executives claim they have a “strong outlook for 2017.”

“We are extremely grateful for the contributions of each and every staff member who will be leaving SoundCloud, and we wish all of them the best,” said Ljung. “Without them, we would not be where we are today. [SoundCloud will] continue to be the place for what’s new, now and next in music.”

From being the first artists to release a single via Shazam to being the first DJ to launch his own Facebook Messenger Bot, his new partnership with China Mobile once more aligns Hardwell with a tech giant and demonstrates his clear drive to push the boundaries of how his music reaching his fan base.

Jolin has been cited by many as the “Asian Madonna” with over 25 million record sales to date. With over 37 million followers on Weibo and 2.3 million followers on Instagram, Jolin also boasts having had over 100 million downloads on her songs, giving her the highest record sales for an Asia female pop singer.

As part of this highly anticipated studio release, the duo has partnered with China’s biggest mobile operating China Mobile Cooperation who have made the record available to its 800 million subscribers as a first listen premiere of an enormous pop-meets-dance collaboration. Early support for ‘We Are One’ has already put the single at #1 in the Taiwanese iTunes chart and on the Chinese download platforms QQ and Kuwa – which is an impressive feat for an English speaking dance record.

Hardwell explained, “Anyone who follows my career knows I’ve always tried to find new and cool ways to release my music. I’ve being touring Asia for many years now, both as a festival headliner and with my new Macau residency, I’ve also brought along my Revealed Recordings crew to hold down a residency in Guangzhou.  Asia is one of the most exciting, emerging markets on the planet for dance music right now! Working with Jolin on this record was a great experience and we wanted to find a way to deliver it to the fans in a unique way. Joining forces with China Mobile opens up a direct doorway to many of Jolin’s and my Asian fans so it felt the perfect opportunity for us to bring our world’s together on ‘We Are One’ and deliver some fresh new music to millions of fans!”

This exclusive version of “We Are One” features energetic melodic builds, distinctive Hardwell flavored beats and plenty of drive to ignite the largest festival mainstages. Jolin’s voice on the top line brings a unique pop zest that will embed itself in your head proving it’s catchy, and almost certainly ageless, quality.
