Rell The Soundbender
Rell The Soundbender has a passion for infusing different sounds into his music. The producer started his career securing placements for notable Hip-Hop talent including Lloyd Banks, Jim Jones, and Flo- Rida. With a passion for blending the unexpected, Rell’s radical production process soon led him to aligning genres that typically remain separate. His Panamanian background led him to embrace Moombahton, which resulted in his track with David Heartbreak “Killa” being placed on the Moombahton Forever compilation with Munchi, GTA, Dillon Francis, Craze, Nick Thayer and more. He has also produced bonafide Trap hits in “Grimey Thirsty” & “Angels X Demons” which have made many appearances on Diplo’s BBC Radio 1Xtra mixes. His official remixes, meanwhile, have included Bro Safari’s “Scumbag” and Snoop Lion’s “Lighters Up.” The latter was the official remix of the first single from the musical icon’s Reincarnated album. Rell released his first EP “Gambozoo” on Skrillex’s imprint NEST in 2014, and followed that up with notable originals like “Domeshot” (OWSLA) and a collab with Bro Safari “Inferno.”
Rell has taken to describing his sound as a battle “where lasers and drums fight to the death,” and has also become notorious to trap aficionados through live appearances at events such as Miami’s Winter Music Conference; and for sharing stages with the likes of Yellow Claw, DJ Craze, DJ Sliink, gLAdiator and more. Recently he signed his latest EP “Palante” to Aftercluv x Universal Latin with features from the likes of Los Rakas and the Far East Movement. His record “Subela” with the legendary Kafu Banton is also featured in the upcoming OWSLA Summer Compilation. Rell also notably has a song on the next EDC compilation and will also be performing at EDC Las Vegas this year on the Upside Down House Stage with the likes of Armand Van Helden and Stooki Sound. With his profile rapidly rising, Rell will continue to push sonic boundaries by “Soundbending” Hip-Hop, Trap, Moombahton, House and wherever else the music takes him.
