I’ve raved about REZZ on this site before, but just as a refresher, she is a Deadmau5 protege and has been releasing music for just over a year on his mau5trap imprint. Her tunes are dark, eerie techno bangers that are reminiscent of techno deity Gesaffelstein.
Malaa on the other hand is a mysterious masked man who’s identity is shrouded in doubt (but is probably a combination of Tchami, DJ Snake, and Mercer). His Biggie-sampled track “Notorious” hit our ears a little less than a year ago on a mix for Diplo & Friends and its been getting spins ever since. His pounding housey baselines are a refreshing alternative to some of the more poppy deep/future/trop house styles that have saturated the internet in recent years.
Now this unlikely pairing of REZZ and Malaa have kicked off a quick month long joint tour, aptly labeled LUNATIC, at the beginning of October. Tonight they will make a stop at Soundcheck in our nation’s capital bringing with them a shared affinity for pounding baselines and black head wear.
In honor of the show, I put together a little playlist of their tracks for your listening pleasure.
REZZ x Malaa Playlist
Since REZZ is a relatively new artist there are several unofficial remixes and originals that she’s done in the past year plus that haven’t made it to Spotify yet (or may never). Check them out below.
