Jeff Witscher (born August 13, 1983) is an American electronic musician. He has recorded and performed under many aliases, of which the best-known is Rene Hell.[1][2][3]

Witscher got his start in the underground music scene in Los Angeles, CA in the early 2000s performing with his brother Greg in groups such as Rainbow Blanket and Cruel Face. Following a move to Iowa City in 2007 Witscher began using the moniker Rene Hell. During this time he began the label Agents of Chaos, on which released the earliest Rene Hell releases along with releases by Keith Fullerton Whitman, Greg Davis and many others. In 2013 he released Vanilla Call Option on PAN.[4]

In 2018 he released Approximately 1,000 Beers on his own imprint Salon.

In April 2019 he performed at the festival Neo-Pastiche: Changes in American Music at Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center in Asheville, NC alongside the Petr Kotik, the S.E.M. Ensemble and other contemporary Experimental artists.[5]
