Hot on the heels of his new single with AlunaGeorge, Automatic, the enigmatic producer known as ZHU returns with a brand-new collaboration with A-Trak, titled Crazy As It Is.
A-Trak and ZHU blend elements of reggae, hip hop, and house together for a funky, laid-back groove that is so smooth it makes silk look rough by comparison. ZHU goes back and forth on vocals with Jamaican singer Keznamdi as simple guitar plucks and piano play leave you with that loving feeling. Throw in A-Trak’s trademark scratches, and you’ve got all you need.
This is the second track from ZHU’s Genesis Series, which was cryptically introduced via a new website, generationwhy.com. Alongside AlunaGeorge and A-Trak, letters emerge spelling the names of other peeps you might recognize–mainly Skrillex, Gallant, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony–so it’s safe to assume we can expect these collaborations to come to light sooner rather than later.
You can stream the full song up above and pick it up Sept. 25.
