REZZ and deadmau5 form a dastardly duo on debut collaboration, ‘Hypnocurrency’
In a long-overdue meeting of the musical minds, Canadian production powerhouses REZZ and deadmau5 have come together for their first-ever collaboration, “Hypnocurrency.” REZZ has long considered the producer her mentor, and after she signed to mau5trap in 2016, her career swiftly climbed. In 2016, REZZ told Dancing Astronaut that deadmau5’s “Superliminal” is the track that inspired her to pursue a sonic course; now, through “Hypnocurrency,” REZZ’s electronic path comes full circle.
“Hypnocurrency” lives up to the steep expectations many assuredly had for the single after REZZ posted a preview during a shared studio session with deadmau5. The song starts as darkly as one would expect, with menacing production that ascends into dancing synth progressions before breaking into attention-grabbing bass. “Hypnocurrency” is a clear combination of both producers’ styles and will provide REZZ and deadmau5 alike with compelling content for future live performances.
Accompanying the release is a “Hypnocurrency” NFT drop, now live on Hypnocurrency by mau5trap – MakersPlace Drops. Bidders have the opportunity to obtain one of four custom pieces, each designed by deadmau5 and featuring a cut of “Hypnocurrency” music. “Hypnocurrency” is out now via mau5trap.
