On Halloween night, the EDM scene at Skyway Theater in Downtown Minneapolis was bustling. In the bizarre crowd, one could find concert-goers clad in warlock costumes, one sporting a giant severed bunny’s head, people covered with glitter and barely anything else, and mohawks sticking straight up in the air.

Skyway is a maze with different DJs spinning dubstep and EDM mashups around every corner. Find your way to the main stage and you will be greeted by funky women spinning hula-hoops that emanate psychedelic light patterns. Vape smoke created a massive cloud above the stage, where colorful streams of light moved to the rhythm of the low, continuous bass that remained a steady pulse over the course of all five sets of the night.

The concert was a progressive incline in energy, culminating with the main act: REZZ. Isabelle Rezazadeh (who goes by stage name REZZ) is only 22 years old, but has already made a name for herself in the industry. Her unique style of incorporating heavy basslines with minimalist techno earned her approval from EDM supergiants Skrillex and Deadmau5. At Skyway, she did not disappoint. REZZ amped up the crowd with loud, punctuating bass motives that climaxed in epic drops. As soon as her set started, a sea of hands emerged in the air, bouncing to the beat. Wearing her signature swirly glasses, she led the crowd through a series of infectious tracks that made the whole room vibrate. This Halloween, REZZ guided fans through a crazy performance that was sure to fulfill all of their trippy, techno dreams.
