Canadian DJ Rezz accomplished her mission of bringing peace through music as she blew the crowd away at Friday night’s show at the National. Sporting her signature spiral glasses, Rezz had fans hypnotized with her tunes.
Promoting her Mass Manipulation album, the show featured many songs off the DJ’s debut album. Hearing the single “Premonition” live was an intense experience and it sent the crowd into a frenzy of cheers and applause. Her vibrant nature came out through her music as well as her movements with her swaying and pumping to the heavy beats. Her energy and vibe on stage never wavered and kept the crowd on their feet throughout the show.
Rezz’s visuals were amazing, rotating through numerous mind-bending fractal patterns that got so vivid, there was a point where I thought I was being sucked into a kaleidoscope. She also added some visuals from her Mass Manipulation comic book, which enhanced the effect of her psychedelic-based tunes.
The DJ gave a shout out to her visuals team, and it the trance-like shapes and colors kept the packed venue invested and fixated on her the entire night. Rezz’ hectic tour schedule has had her playing several music festivals and she will continue to tour into January, but she showed no sign of fatigue during her set Friday night.
“This was our second time seeing her in the past two months(last time being at lost lands) and she put on a different set, this one was definitely the best,” Rezz fan and Richmond local Tara told RVA Mag at the show.
Before exiting the stage, Rezz gave her fans a treat, an unreleased track which seemed to get everyone stoked and get their energy back up.
And openers No Mana and K?d, put on an excellent performance and did a great job of hyping up the crowd before the main attraction. Rezz, thanks for coming to Richmond, your radiant presence, and hypnotic tunes will always be welcome.
