Rezz Rocks V Comes Alive: The Magic of Day One

REZZ with a new set of visuals

Red Rocks concert season is nearing the end of another fantastic year of performances. With over two months left in the season, concertgoers are grabbing tickets to upcoming events before it’s too late. Rezz Rocks V flew by at the end of August with the fifth installment of the two-night event. The show featured collaborative songs, originals by REZZ, and other special treats for the Colorado audience.

REZZ From Past to Present

Isabelle Rezazadeh (aka REZZ) is a Ukranian-Canadian DJ who began her career with just her laptop and SoundCloud at home in Niagara Falls. From laptop DIY to the launch of her label HypnoVizion Records in 2022, Rezazadeh has touched on many facets of the DJing world. She’s worked with names like Skrillex and Deadmau5, and saw new heights after her track “Serenity” was featured on the Mau5trap album We Are Friends, Vol 4. In late 2017, Rezazadeh’s full length debut album Mass Manipulation was released. Her albums Mass Manipulation and Beyond the Senses earned her Electronic Album of the Year twice (in 2018 and 2020) and defined her dark techno style. In July 2023, she released a new album dedicated to all the emo kids past and present titled It’s Not a Phase.

A Lineup Fit for the Handsome Princess

Day one of Rezz Rocks V hit a new level of intense visuals and music. The 2023 lineup had a roster that perfectly ramped up the mood until the final act. On Thursday, August 31st, doors for the show opened at 5 PM, with stands filling up until 7 PM. From start to finish, every head in the crowd could be seen bobbing up and down or side to side on the beat. With their hands in the air for certain anticipated songs, the crowd was electrified by the grace of bass.

Redrum from Portland cast a spell of tech-house warming up our muscles in anticipation for the night ahead. Skeler, coming from Australia, had a flawless transition into some bass-heavy phonk that got our hips swaying. The last act for the first half of the night was Digital Ethos laying down some funky phonk, commanding the crowd to bob like waves on the ocean. The tide of vibes sailed us straight into an intermission as the sun began to set.

The sun’s rays were no longer gracing Red Rocks on the cloudless first day, and the lights came on for Lab Group. The culmination of different minds and backgrounds came together during their opening set. With our musical palates refreshed and eager for more, we got even more than we bargained for.

As the headliner graced the stage, the moment itself felt surreal. REZZ demanded full attention from the audience as she debuted a brand new set of visuals. The crowd went nuts over the live performances of her earlier works and her more recent material. The camera angle on the stageside screens painted the main act like an AI-rendered portrait. Garbed in her signature ponytail, baseball cap, and LED goggles, Rezazadeh put on a mystical display under the blue moon.

Over in a Flash

Rezz Rocks V went off without a hitch, making it a core memory for most attendees according to the buzz in the stands. Both nights held completely different sets, each one including a drone show and well-timed pyrotechnics. By the end of both nights, fans left the amphitheater talking about their anticipation for Rezz Rocks VI, which has yet to be given a date.

REZZ Rocks Bewitched Us With A Nightmare On REZZ Street

The queen of Halloween has returned to claim her throne in Colorado for two nights of REZZ Rocks VI. On October 27th, REZZ summoned us to Red Rocks Amphitheater to behold the most memorable Halloween party of the year: a special Nightmare on REZZ Street set. Leading up to this spectral experience, a wicked lineup of artists would slay the decks to induce booty shaking and head-banging all night long.

J|Adore

We were met by the electrifying talent of J|Adore as soon as the gates opened. Although snow had fallen earlier in the afternoon, her music cut through the chill and started off her REZZ Rocks debut piping hot. Her deep, rhythmic electro beats sizzled in the crisp air, leaving no question of her growing success as a local DJ in Denver. Not only has she headlined Temple Nightclub in Denver, but she has also supported many prestigious artists, such as Benny Benassi and Green Velvet.

EDDIE

A dark, entrancing bass flooded the venue as EDDIE took over the decks next. He satisfied thirsty bass heads with his captivating hit, “Still Healing,” then unleashed one heavy hitter after another. His sound was hypnotizing and kept the crowd going wild! Talented Australian DJ EDDIE debuted on the mau5trap label in 2017, releasing tracks with artists like ATLiens(Closer) and REZZ (Time, Stress). “Still Healing” has amassed over one million views on YouTube and nearly four million plays on Spotify. No wonder we couldn’t resist his sound!

Mary Droppinz

Mary Droppinz followed, taking us to the sweeter side of the spooky season with breakbeat electro, techno, and house. Purple lights mellowed the stage while she led us on a booty-shaking adventure. Her groovy, eclectic style filled our good vibe cups to the top. Mary Droppinz, hailing from Nebraska, is touring across the U.S. to the best parties around. You can catch her in Denver at The Church Nightclub on New Year’s Eve and EDC Las Vegas in May!

EAZYBAKED

Then, DJ duo EAZYBAKED appeared and brought weird, wonderful wubs for all the wooks. As their REZZ Rocks debut, this proved to be a special set. I couldn’t hold back my “bass face” as deep, organic music flowed from the hands of these bass masters. Seeing as they have track collaborations with Of The Trees and G-Space, it’s clear they’re on a fast track to success. Just in the last six months, Florida-based EAZYBAKED has headlined shows in several states, as well as supporting artists like GRiZ, Sullivan King, and Ganja White Night!

Wreckno

Wreckno graced the mainstage next with show-stopping entertainment. We were dazzled with a fabulous choreographed introduction featuring Wreckno and incredibly talented dancers. To our pleasure, Yvie Oddly made a guest appearance to perform an amazing rap/DJ’ing duet! We loved this high-energy set loaded with Wreckno’s signature combination of DJ’ing, bass, and rapping. This Michigan-born star is currently on tour across the country and has proven his talent at large festivals like Lollapalooza and Electric Zoo!

REZZ

Finally, REZZ took her place on stage, and we were gushing with excitement. Eerie, unearthly music began as the stage came to life like a real horror movie. Unsettled but unable to avert our eyes, we watched as REZZ and her production team swept us from REZZ Rocks into another dimension. The shackles of our reality were broken as we were plunged into the tantalizing visual and audio experience of Nightmare on REZZ Street.

Haunting characters and nightmarish scenes led us through this spectral journey. With REZZ guiding at the helm, her hypnotic bass and mesmerizing beats created a truly immersive event. Her impeccable talent was on full display, incorporating her newest release, “Nightmare On REZZ Street 2,” as well as tracks like Selector, Flying Octopus, and Puzzle Box– just to name a few.

REZZ has gained popularity worldwide for her otherworldly sound and supernatural-like concert experiences. She recently launched a new record label, HypnoVizion, with Nightmare on REZZ Street 2 Mix as its release debut.

We’ll see you in our dreams

Night one of REZZ Rocks came to an end, but not before REZZ played some of her most requested songs to appease her fans- what a treasure. Photos and videos don’t always capture the full essence of a concert, so we will be reliving this Nightmare on REZZ street in our dreams long after everyone travels home.
