For his debut Dim Mak EP, R3LL delivers the bubbly electronic project Visions. Recently premiered on Complex, the record sees R3LL balance lushness with energy, a tactic that results in a dichotomy of pure fire through four collaborative singles. Snatching up producers from across the globe – Norway’s Autolaser, Spain’s Alizzz, Japan’s Banvox and HVNS – the Jersey Club pioneer seduces the dance floor with his stimulating style of popping bass and vibrant melodies.
Lead by singles “Visions” and “Down,” Visions is R3LL’s most compelling work to-date. The silky sophomore record follows Directions, his debut EP that served as the inaugural release on legendary Jersey Club crew Brick Bandits’ official label. R3LL recently sat down with Dummy to discuss Jersey Club and share his 10 essential tracks. In his own words,
“I grew up in Newark, listening to Jersey Club, it’s connected to me a deep emotional level and it will always be in my heart. I’m blessed to be able to say that it’s taken me to places around the world I never thought I would have seen. I watched it grow out of Bmore and Chicago house music, so I’m excited to help shape it and see how it will continue to evolve and inspire new music.”
By merging his distinctive production style with diverse sounds and refusing to adhere to modern musical conventions, R3LL has been able to magnify his beloved genre’s influence worldwide. Following a move to LA and standout performances at our recent 20th Anniversary events in Atlanta and SXSW, Jersey Club pioneer R3LL has found a new home at Dim Mak.
