Rezz Drops New Single “Flying Octopus”

REZZ has made available her new single “Flying Octopus,”the third track following “Witching Hour” and “H E X” from her upcoming new album Certain Kind Of Magic (out August 3 on mau5trap).  Says REZZ of the song, “It’svery chill. Not headbang worthy by any means, more like ‘building a puzzle’ music or like a bunch of flying octopus’ floating around…”
To accompany the song, REZZ teamed with Ireland’s Pink Kong Studios for its video.  The animated piece features an octopus receiving messages from REZZ in a bottle to help him map out a way to fly to her on Neptune. Using the help of his friends, this is all made possible.
Meanwhile, this past Tuesday, July 17, REZZ showcased her new body of work at a special event at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA.  A small group of industry and fans from The Cult of REZZ were privy to a private magic show followed by an exclusive listening of the album.  In attendance were The Glitch Mob, DESTRUCTO, Tokimonsta and mau5trap artist Rinzen.
CERTAIN KIND OF MAGIC-which also features collaborations with emerging artists like Deathpact, Kotek, 13 and Fytch, adding to the battery of her menacing productions–follows REZZ‘ 2017 full-length debut Mass Manipulation (mau5trap) which brimmed with the innovative singles and collaborations that consistently portray the menacing soundscapes she is known for and truly showcased her forward-thinking and unique mentality. The worldwide critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard (who dubbed her Billboard Dance Breakout Artist of the Year), MixmagDancing Astronaut, and many more is testament to the fact that REZZ has truly become a tastemaker and trendsetter in the industry.

Rounding out the evening’s entertainment will be a “Dazed and Confused” themed interactive photo booth from Nicky Digital as well as trivia to test ticketholders’ film knowledge projected before the film on the big screen. Also offering a variety of ticketing options from general admission through to VIP packages that include premium viewing from one of the venue’s priority vantage points, luxe seating, wine and charcuterie, the Mirage Cinema caters to every budget and taste.

 

Converting the impressive 18,000 square foot tropical courtyard into a truly unique outdoor viewing experience, the launch marks the first in the Mirage Cinema series, with the remaining films set to screen every second Thursday over the summer. Providing padded folded chairs in the front and picnic tables in the back, alongside intimate premium viewing areas for couples or larger groups, guests will be able to lounge underneath the palm trees and marvel at the 360-degree video mapping. Projecting classics and blockbusters alike onto a gigantic 18’ x 32’ screen alongside a crisp VHD5.0 festival-level sound system, this is the unrivaled movie experience NYC film buffs have been waiting for.
Stay tuned for additional Mirage Cinema dates coming soon!

Twerl & Max Styler Remix Diplo’s “Color Blind” feat. Lil Xan

Max Styler has been on an extraordinary success route and has climbed higher than high this past year. Believe it or not, Max along with Australia-based Twerl have released together yet again, this time an official remix for Diplo & Lil Xan‘s “Color Blind” on Mad Decent/Columbia Records. The talented artists have taken the bass line and transformed it into a funky summer beat. Lil Xan‘s vocals have been preserved with unique and vibrant key sounds that highlight the reworks of Max and Twerl. The San Luis Obispo native could not hide his excitement when he talked about this release: “I was stoked to work on this track with Twerl as we’ve had a great workflow this year with our past two releases. I’m super happy it came out as an official Diplo remix! Hope you like it as much as we do” – says Max. The track was simply frosted with a little twist of Max and Twerl‘s creative masterworks, which saved the tracks originality. In the past, they both have worked together on a single called “Wasted Time” released on Elysian Records this March. As can be heard, their work and time spent together has amazing outcomes.

In just a few years, Max Styler has graduated from musical whiz kid to accomplished and seasoned producer. Since being signed on Dim Mak when he was only 18 years old, Styler‘s unique sound and impeccable production skills have earned him both commercial appeal and underground clout. His track “Roller Coaster” rose to number three on the Beatport charts during its first week, followed by the epic “Knock Me Down” with MAKJ and his three track “Gold” and “Deep Dream” remix package. Last year, he experimented with whimsical melodies and vocals on “Secrets” featuring CXLOE and “Heroes” with Nevve, before putting out the dancefloor-friendly “All Your Love” as his first track of 2018. If one thing is for sure, Max Styler is always evolving. Just two weeks ago he released his collaborative single with KRANE – “Changes“, and then (only 3 days later) teamed up with Steve AokiDeorro, and MAKJ for “Shakalaka” on Ultra Records. We can’t wait to be along for the ride.

SLANDER and American Idol’s Juliana Chahayed Team Up For “So Long”


Download / Stream

Seemingly ever extending an impressive run of memorable singles to soundtrack 2018, SLANDERreturn today with their latest, “So Long“, a see-ya-never anthem penned with American Idolfinalist Juliana Chahayed. Initially emerging as a shy day-dreamy headphone jam, the tune quickly gains confidence, propelled by a driving backbeat that lifts off to a bursting full bloomed realization, revealing itself as a bouncy tropical tinged summer jam of self empowerment. Opting to eschew the harder sides of their sound for a skillful touch that perfectly compliments the “catch flights, not feels” sentiment of Chahayed‘s lyrics, SLANDER instead showcase the power of restraint, with infectious end results that land squarely on the target of infinite replayability. Good luck with your future ex, because they’re blasting this one with the top down till they can’t even remember your name. “So Long” is out now on Monstercat.

SLANDER first made waves in the scene when they debuted their remix of Showtek‘s “We Like to Party” in 2014, coining their unique sound. However, SLANDER has proven they are capable of so much more than remixes and a singular genre. The duo made waves with their original productions and an evolved sound, as recently evidenced on “Welcome To The Fire” with Sullivan King, “I Can’t Escape” with SAYMYNAME featuring Feli Ferraro and “Happy Now“. Their ability to produce both bass-heavy headbangers and emotionally stirring melodies distinguishes them as talented, multifaceted producers, not to mention their charismatic stage presence. Together with NGHTMRESLANDER has made their “Gud Vibrations” event concept into a bonafide lifestyle. In 2018 they sold out their Miami Music Week’s Gud Vibrations Boat Party in less than 3 minutes, and continue to branch out and grow their brand. This is only the beginning for SLANDER, so stay tuned to see what they have up their sleeve next
