Initially, Lenii created a rap-verse that called out the unbalanced systems in America- eventually sharing it to TikTok where it received over 2 million views and a large number of requests to finish the “Gen Z anthem”. Lenii wrote and produced the rest of the track where it was used in a Utah Democrats official ad campaign and has more than 630K streams to date. Covering a range of topics from COVID-19, climate change, police brutality and sexism, Callie found interest in the track and reached out to Lenii for collaboration.
“I loved the meaning behind the record and how powerful it felt. It was the perfect track for me to combine everything I have already been working on into it and showcase this new side of my sound no one has heard yet,” she writes. Callie shared a preview of “The Kids Are All Rebels 2.0” during her December residency on Sofi Tukker’s weekly Twitch show.
Callie reckoned an indie-club spin to the original track, creating an electrifying spirit. A vibrant, fearless energy derives from Callie’s tracks with each new release.
From being a musical prodigy to an industry trendsetter, Callie Reiff has made history as the youngest DJ to perform at NYC’s Webster Hall at only 15 years old. Performing at festivals such as Creamfields, EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland and Ultra as well as opening up for world-renowned artists such as Ed Sheeran, Deadmau5, Skrillex and more has contributed to her becoming an all-round performer.
Callie transcends in the dance music scene as she is getting ready to relaunch her solo project with a slate of new singles and forthcoming EP, projected to release later this year.
