As they ride peak success, the two artists have come together for a massive collaboration, “Puzzle Box,” which delighted fans will find fuses the best of both producers signature sound design.
The track finds a balance between the two’s respective styles and together provides a unique joint experience into the REZZ-Subtronics sonic world.
26-year-old Canadian DJ/producer Isabelle Rezazadeh AKA REZZ has racked up tens of millions of streams, sold out legendary venues and headlined top festivals around the world. She oozes originality and produces genre-bending electronic works, striking a sharp balance between bass-heavy and minimal tech compositions.
Her first independent project—the adventurous Beyond TheSenses EP—was released in 2019 and garnered praise from Alternative Press, SPIN and Billboard who called it “her most impactful project to date” and went on to receive The JUNO Award for Electronic Album of the Year in 2020. She graced the cover of Billboard’s 2019 Dance Issue and has been attributed as being at the forefront of the dance and rock music crossover.
2020 marked a banner year for the producer, who released her first single through RCA Records “Someone Else” with Grabbitz, which has garnered over 36 million streams worldwide and reached #15 on Alt Radio in the US and #1 in Canada. Alternative Press praised the song upon its release, including it as the lead track in their weekly playlist.
They called the video “another high point in REZZ’s canon,” saying,“…the song evokes a sinister groove that will appeal to dance music devotees as well as industrial rivetheads…” REZZ is heavily featured in a documentary called “Underplayed,” available on Amazon Prime, which highlights the current issues female DJs face in the dance industry.
A love for SUBwoofers and elecTRONICS has brought us Subtronics. Growing up in Philadelphia, PA, Jesse Kardon aka Subtronics had a passion for his drum set and Radiohead. While in high school, he discovered dubstep and became enamored with the scene.
Having never heard that style of music before, Jesse was inspired to jump into the world of production and learned the basics via tutorial videos. Fusing his unique blend of cutting-edge sound design with hard-hitting bass, Subtronics seeks to push the envelope with sound engineering. On the live front, he has built a rabid following with his high energy sets and advanced mixing skills.
When his sell-out Cyclops Invasion Tour was cut short due to the global pandemic in 2020, Subtronics seized the opportunity to continue reaching new audiences. He became an official partner on Twitch, produced XR/VR live-stream sets that have garnered thousands of views, dropped a Splice Sample Pack, pioneered socially distanced drive-in and pod events with Monster Energy as a sponsor, and launched his very own label, Cyclops Recordings, in December of 2020.
Subtronics’ label is home to his last four EPs, as well as multiple compilations featuring the next generation of producers. In December of 2021, he announced his debut album ‘FRACTALS’ would release in January of 2022. The album coincides with his massive 55+ date national headline tour, The FRACTAL Tour, which will feature state of the art production and visuals unlike anything we’ve seen yet. Notable venues on the run include Gila River Arena, WaMu Theater, Coca Cola Roxy, Avant Gardner, Echostage and more.
