As the rest of the world has finally begun to latch on to Jersey Club and barrel forward at the speed of light, original Brick Bandits crew member R3LL has long been running things in his native Newark New Jersey, helping to build awareness of his homegrown sound that The Fader lauded "the most deliriously entertain ing dancefloor movement of the moment" and Thump, in a recent review of R3LL's debut EP Directions, called "one of the most exciting happenings in all of dance music."
R3LL initially gained recognition for his sophisticated, official remixes across Cashmere Cat's Rice Rain (LuckyMe), Lido's Money (Pelican Fly), Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo's Signs (Ultra), and Keys N Krates' Your Love (Dim Mak). While The Fader proclaimed "R3LLs remix of Disclosure's Latch is one of the best out there... gain ing a psychical intimacy the original sought but was never allowed to achieve."
The media proclaimed nothing but love for Directions, with R3LL universally lauded as the crossover face of Jersey Club and high-profile tastemakers such as Diplo, Annie Mac, Cashmere Cat, Nina Las Vegas, Nick Catchdubs and Anna Lunoe showed enthusiastic support for the New Jersey wunderkind.
Headline tours across the US, Europe, and Japan have further proved the rest of the world has begun to latch on to R3LL's unique, experimental take on Jersey Club. The genre is a continuous success overseas as well in the States, further proving the Jersey Club sound is undeniably going to keep growing and spreading. It's inspiring a new wave of Asian producers, dancers, and Jersey Club music culture to also thrive and live abroad as well as it is back home in Jersey. R3LL is one of the 1st brick bandit original members to go there and spread the music. He also played Tomorrowland, EDC, and Coachella back to back.
