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 on T&A Records. This compilation featured work from 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 also released his first EP “Gambozoo” on Skrillex’s imprint NEST in 2014.
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 DJ Craze, DJ Sliink, gLAdiator and more. 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.

Last week in preparation for the release of 'BLOOM' , I was asked to come to insomniac office to further tell my story in detail, and I was honored to do so. It's something I've kept personal for the past 2-3 years, but I felt it was time to share my experience, as I know I'm not the only one that has gone through nor WILL go through something like it.
I personally hate the sound of my voice but you are all welcome to take a listen lol. Thank you to Insomniac.com for having me in your Wide Awake Series and for the support on the release of 'BLOOM'.🌹👹🌹
