Canadian DJ Rezz has unveiled “Dark Age,” the first taste of her forthcoming EP, Beyond the Senses.
The ominous new track features all the elements of a Rezz standard: broody synths, a smoldering bassline and a powerful beat drop. But the haunting guitar melody that opens the track adds an unexpected twist to the DJ’s typical dubstep-heavy sound.
“‘Dark Age’ was the first song I completed for this project and I think best fits the vibe of the title and visual components which will be integrated into my new show,” Rezz told Billboard Dance, which premiered the track.
“The purpose of Beyond the Senses is to have listeners imagine life beyond the limitations of their basic human senses,” she added. “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 out July 24 and will mark Rezz’s debut release for UK record label AWAL. Stream “Dark Age” below:
