Poll 2022: REZZ

From: Canada

DJ style: “Hypnotic.”

Best known for: “‘Edge’.”

Now in her third year in the Top 100 DJs list — after breaking into the poll as the highest new entry in 2020 — 2022 has been another packed year for the Canadian artist born Isabelle Rezazadeh, both in the studio and on the road. Since last year's Top 100 DJs, REZZ has released her third full-length album, 'Spiral', as well as an ethereal, electro-tinged cover of Eurythmics 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)' alongside fknsyd — the artist she chose as her rising star DJ/producer of 2021 in last year's poll. In March, she also dropped her dubstep-influenced Subtronics collaboration, 'Puzzle Box'.

On the road, REZZ's relentless tour diary has taken in stops at EDC Las Vegas, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, while she also returned to Red Rocks amphitheatre for the annual REZZ Rocks series, alongside artists including Of The Trees, Chee, Canabliss, and Kill Script. Additional dates had to be added this year due to demand for her live show, all delivered from behind REZZ's trademark swirling glasses.
