Artist Spotlight: DJ Rell

Jersey Club is like the sexy, shy cousin of Trap music. Some of my personal favorite Jersey Club producers include DJ Rell, Trippy Turtle, Drippy Dolphin, DJ Tray, Cashmere Cat, DJ Sliink, DJ Hoodboi, and Ryan Hemsworth. Like many of his Jersey Club contemporaries, DJ Rell is influenced by club, bass, trap, hip hop, and R&B. The Newark native is also apart of Brick Bandits Entertainment, so you know he’s legit.

DJ Rell excels in his ability to chop and loop vocal samples into a catchy rhythm that will make you bounce along. His remix of ScHoolBoy Q’s “Man of the Year” is a great example of his wit and attention to detail. I don’t want to spoil it, but the chopping and looping of this sample is pretty clever and reason enough to check this track out.

Hint: “Bounce on a …. !”

Rice Rain is a favorite off of Cashmere Cat’s Wedding Bells EP. The original has a very relaxed vibe with a rain drop sample that is very fluid throughout the track (pun intended). I love how DJ Rell picks up the beat in his remix and adds more bounce to make this track a lot more fun.

If you’re not already hooked on DJ Rell by now, here are three more tracks that should do you in for good:

Bonus- Trippy Turtle dropped his new mix of “Na Na” on SoundCloud this morning. It features vocal samples from the Trey Songz track and all I can say is wow… Trippy Turtle knows just how to chop and loop those vocals. So on point.
