Rezz, first of her name, so-called "queen of dark techno," Space Mom, hypnotic eyewear enthusiast and mass manipulator now aims to take her fans to the "Dark Age." It's the first song from a forthcoming EP called Beyond the Senses, and with an alluring alt-rock intro that takes her menacing, mechanical sound to new dimensions.
The song stomps with all of Rezz's signature electric charge. It's haunting and industrial, but the ghostly guitar melody, tinkering jewelry-box tune and fuzzy bass rumbles are proof that the popular producer has found a way to build upon her expected formula.
“'Dark Age' was the first song I completed for this project and I think best fits the vibe of the title & visual components which will be integrated into my new show," Rezz tells Billboard Dance. "The purpose of Beyond the Senses is to have listeners imagine life beyond the limitations of their basic human senses. Each piece of the project (the music, the tour visuals, and the virtual reality component) will work together to reflect the concept of living beyond your senses."
Beyond the Senses is scheduled for full release July 24, her first official release on AWOL. "Dark Age" is out everywhere Wednesday, but you can listen to it a day early below, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
