Today, Rob “Rez” Resnick introduces Molly Parton, his groundbreaking country house DJ project, via the ambitious new single “California” with up-and-coming country stars, Fairground Saints. “California'' seamlessly blends electronic dance music with pop-country to create an innovative new sound that will undoubtedly get your 2020 off to the right start. The single and accompanying video are a welcome ray of sunshine, bringing a little bit of summer to all of us braving the winter cold as it pays homage to sunny California. “California” is the first single released from his forthcoming debut EP Welcome to Mollyville, due out later this year on Molly Parton’s new imprint at Entertainment One (eOne), Mollyville Records.
As the producer half of Timeflies, Rez has garnered over half a billion streams to his credit. As a huge country music fan himself, and as a producer with over a decade of dance / pop production under his belt, Rez created Molly Parton to continue to bring country’s passionate storytelling and melodies to the dance world. The accompanying video perfectly highlights the vibrant, carefree vibes that Molly Parton creates in this inherently unique brand of dance floor anthems. You can watch the video now here and it is available for streaming on all of your favorite platforms. “California’s” soaring hook “What’s so great about California?” is a romantic ode; even though California is beautiful, the vocalist longs for her lover living back home in the South. Her sultry country yearning is a dynamic contrast with the dance groove and propulsive drops of the production. On contributing to the vocals on the song Fairground Saints noted, “We love the way Molly Parton made it come alive in a unique way and we hope people will too.” According to Rez, the inspiration for his unique genre crossing act is the late Avicii. “I was a huge Avicii fan from his early days. Despite his obvious international success, his come up coincided with the early Timeflies music and was hugely formative. When he passed away, I stayed up all night listening to his music and realized that some of his biggest records - particularly off of True - like ‘Wake Me Up.’, ‘Hey Brother,’ and ‘Addicted To You’ were some of the most iconic music of the last decade because they invented country house.”
