by the partae

The Los Angeles-based trio comprise of Boreta (Justin Boreta)edIT (Ed Ma), andOoah (Joshua Mayer), and together they combined their different skills into the compellingly collaged whole that has become one of the most beloved live electronic acts, and distinctive recording artists, working today.

After 4 years they are finally back with a brand new album ‘See Without Eyes’, set for a release date of the 4th of May.

First up though is a stunning remix from Canadian DJ and producer Isabelle Rezazadeh aka REZZ of The Glitch Mob’s track ‘I Could Be Anything’ (Feat. Elohim). The rising star has taken the industry by storm with her ground-breaking releases, notably snatching up the crown as Billboard Dance’s Breakout Artist in 2017. Her interpretation of  ‘I Could Be Anything’ (Feat. Elohim) is nothing less than astonishing. A distinctive bass drum permeates the intro of the cut, ultimately intertwining with Glitch Mob’s core production and Elohim’s hovering vocals. The track moves effortlessly toward an analog heavy drop that is sure to captivate listeners across both distinct fanbases.

‘I’m a fan of both artists [The Glitch Mob, Elohim] & when I was sent the original song, I wanted to give it my own twist.’ – REZZ

‘It’s an honor to present the REZZ remix of our new track with Elohim. We are big fans of REZZ — there’s a natural harmony between our sounds. The music speaks for itself.’ – The Glitch Mob 

When you think about the Los Angeles beat scene you are talking about one of the more talent-rich scenes to come to prominence this century. It gave rise to acts likeShlohmoTOKiMONSTAThundercat and, of course, Flying Lotus amongst many others. But arguably none of them has reached a bigger audience than The Glitch Mob
