“I'm excited to be doing my listening party in virtual reality next week,” said REZZ. “I wanted to take everyone beyond their senses by engaging with my music and visuals in a totally new and unique way. It's definitely going to trip you out.”
“We’re huge fans of REZZ and the world she’s created around her music,” said Adam Arrigo CEO and Co-Founder of Wave. “We’re excited to visualize and connect people within that world for the first time using the power of our platform. Fans won’t have to travel the globe to join the show, and we love that their first experience of the record will be mindblowing in a way only games and digital mediums can afford.”
Wave Studio in the company’s Los Angeles office helps artists easily connect with their global fan base in real time through proprietary avatar technology. Wavecast is a broadcast tool to beam live shows across VR, desktop and social streams. REZZ will debut exclusive, first-ever interactive moments in the ‘Beyond The Senses’ virtual listening party for fans joining via Twitch. Fans in the Twitch chat will be able to effect some of the visuals live as the show unfolds.
Fans can join the live virtual listening party on any platform - in virtual reality or PC desktop app on Wave, which is free to download on Steam (compatible with HTC Vive headset and PC desktop app available) and Oculus (compatible with Oculus Rift headset), or on live streams on Facebook (@officialrezz, @thewavexr), YouTube (REZZ) and Twitch (twitch.tv/thewavexr).

At just 24 years old, REZZ stands with the best of her peers, but she has a sound that’s all her own. REZZ has racked up tens of millions of streams, sold out legendary venues like Red Rocks, headlined top festivals around the world, and recently graced the cover of Billboard - all without a radio hit. She oozes originality and produces genre-bending electronic works, striking a sharp balance between bass-heavy and minimal tech compositions. This July, she’ll release her first independent project that will also feature a special VR component - the adventurous 'Beyond The Senses' EP.
‘Beyond The Senses,’ REZZ’s first independent release that drops July 24, will reimagine how we consume music through virtual reality. Using live-motion capture and face-tracking technology, REZZ will transform into a digital avatar and perform to fans watching her through live streams and in VR around the world. To make this possible, she has teamed up with Wave, a platform that creates virtual concerts, that has been used by TOKiMONSTA, The Glitch Mob, Imogen Heap, and more. She also has enlisted Strangeloop Studios, the visual content company that has produced live shows for The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar, Bonobo, Zeds Dead, and more, to help design the look and feel of this brand new sensory experience.
With this forward-thinking mix of technology and creativity, REZZ further establishes her place as a global dance music tastemaker and trendsetter. Billboard has already praised 'Beyond The Senses'’ lead single, “Dark Age,” as “haunting and industrial...the song stomps with all of REZZ’s signature electronic charge.”
Wave is the first virtual entertainment platform and community that connects fans live through music and visual art, allowing artists to create, distribute and monetize virtual concerts through the virtual entertainment ecosystem. The company enables real-time visual experiences that currently do not exist anywhere else. Wave harnesses the power of real-time gaming graphics to amplify the potential reach of music and art while defining a new path for musicians and artists to offer their music. Wave is based in Los Angeles, CA and Austin, TX. For more information, go to http://wavexr.com.
