Who is ZHU? Declaring that “music is faceless,” the artist has chosen not to disclose his real name or post a photo online, instead opting to “let my music tell my story.” At this point, all we really know is that the producer makes some kickass music. Case in point: Paradise Awaits, the lead single off his upcoming The Nightday EP.
Hopping on both vocal and production duties, ZHU effortlessly blends together components of soul, indie, and future garage to create a song that sounds like the love child of Disclosure and Perseus. Sultry and funky, the tune showcases an incredible amount of precision and talent for an artist that has only been active for two months.
