Preview ZHU’s Remixes of “Michael Jackson – Thriller”, “Chic – I’ll Be There”, and More


ZHU’s first BBC Radio 1 Mix aired a few days ago, and now you can preview some of the gems he played. First off is an infectious remix of Michael  Jackson’s classic hit “Thriller”, which was first debuted at Hard Day of the Dead last year. Next up is a very sexy flip of Nile Rogers funky project Chic. ZHU tackles the track “I’ll Be There” and nails it on all levels. And last is an “ID” that is most likely a new single off his next EP/Album and it doesn’t disappoint. Cheers.

[NEW] ZHU – Paradise Awaits. Part 2 Ft. Goldlink

Paradise Awaits. Part 2 Ft. Goldlink

You’re probably thinking, “How could this ZHU and Goldlink collab possibly live up to the hype?” Well this glorious Re-work of “Paradise Awaits”, does just that. The production on the original was next level, but the edits in this flip complement Goldlink’s flow perfectly. The guitar riffs and bass lines that are sprinkled throughout, put you in some sort of daze while ZHU seduces throughout the entire track. Couldn’t be more excited to see these two link up in the studio together, hopefully there’s more where this came from. Cheers.

[Event Review] ODESZA Back-to-Back at Mezzanine, SF 9/18-19

Memories That You Call (feat. Monsoonsiren)

Ninja-favorites ODESZA are in the midst of a meteoric rise with their album, In Return, debuting at the top of the Billboard Top 100 dance/electronic charts last week. So, when they kicked off their supporting tour at Mezzanine in San Francisco, it came as no surprise that a second night was added by popular demand. Being the fans that we are, we were in attendance both nights and their performances were absolutely brilliant.

Well before ODESZA took the stage, a palpable excitement among the sold-out crowd had developed evidencing the brimming fan-base of artists on the cusp of super-stardom. As they emerged, their symmetrical setup included mirroring MPCs and two-piece electric drum sets over the backdrop of kaleidoscopic visuals. Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, the talents behind ODESZA, have a clear on-stage chemistry playing almost perfectly synchronized at times making it clear how they work so well together as musicians. At the same time, they have a sort of casualness on stage, perhaps as a result of their west coast roots, that allows them to connect with the audience in a very personal way. Their electric drum sets were particularly powerful in adding to the live performance as they covered the majority of their library somehow managing to further amplify their stadium-worthy sound.

While it was pretty difficult to establish our favorite songs from the shows, “Memories That You Call,” “Sun Models,” “Keep Her Close,” “Without You” and their remix of Zhu‘s “Faded,” which came out during the encore, stood out as memorable points in their sets. Watch a couple brief clips from the show below and make sure to check out their upcoming tour dates here. Seeing ODESZA at this point in their careers is truly witnessing history in the making.
