Rex the Dog


About Rex the Dog

Rex the Dog is responsible for a bounty of infectious and exuberant '80s-inspired electro-house tracks. Before veteran producer Jake Williams (aka JX) stepped forward to officially confirm rumors of his involvement, the mystery surrounding Rex the Dog's identity garnered a fair amount of attention in electronic circles. However, it never overshadowed the music itself, with its recognizable, impressively durable template of simple, sturdy midtempo beats, buoyant burbling bass, and melodic but constantly mutating portamento synth riffs (and occasionally vocals) flanged and filtered into delirium. Following a series of well-received singles, all adorned with simple cartoon illustrations by Williams himself, the producer released the full-length The Rex the Dog Show in 2008. In addition to remixes for artists such as Robyn, Fever Ray, and Röyksopp, Rex the Dog has collaborated with Kris Menace and DJ Haus, and continued to release solo singles such as 2023's "Change This Pain for Ecstasy."
