ZHU – Paradise Awaits + THE NIGHTDAY EP

In an ever-shifting digital landscape of fluid identities, long distance discoveries and a music community that is more global than ever, ZHU is a unique new voice who has been quick to make name for himself – without even ever having mentioned it. As his career ascends to new heights, he now gives us a brilliant new single, “Paradise Awaits,” that you can listen to above.

Based solely and sonically on the music, the accolades continue to accumulate. An unknown artist merely two months ago, ZHU has achieved critical acclaim from the biggest names and influencers in dance music - Pete Tong, MistaJam and Danny Howard on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra. ‘Faded’ has surged to become the Triple J’s #1 most played track of the week, further demonstrating that enthusiasm with this elusive new artist knows no geographical boundaries. ”This one’s going to be massive”, says Mistajam.

Across six tracks filled with cascading liquid synths, propulsive beats and slinky vocal hooks, ‘THE NIGHTDAY’ EP showcases the unbridled creativity and enticing allure at the core of ZHU‘s craft. Drawing from a range of dance music genres from house to disco to garage to hip-hop and synth-pop, coupled with his distinctly captivating voice, ZHU spins these elements into a potent concoction entirely of his own, perhaps best summed up by his self-penned moniker for the genre - ¯\_()_/¯ . His DEBUT EP, titled “THE NIGHTDAY,” slated for release worldwide on April 20th.

THE NIGHTDAY EP is available for pre-order now ahead of its release April 20th, via ZHU’s very own Los Angeles based label Mind Of A Genius, with first single ‘Paradise Awaits’ available for instant download with any pre-order.

Elephante Releases Brilliant Remixes of The Chainsmokers’ “#SELFIE” and Afrojack’s “Ten Feet Tall”


LA’s swiftly emerging producer/DJ, Elephante, has come through with two brilliant remixes that rival productions from dance music’s elite, while bringing refreshing style that pushes the boundaries of big-room house. First, he has taken on The Chainsmokers’ smash, “#SELFIE,” and departed from its original “Melbourne bounce” roots to transform it into an exhilarating Swedish-influenced masterpiece. On the other hand, he has given Afrojack’s “Ten Feet Tall” a massive melody-driven makeover with arpeggiated synth lines and a high energy vibe complemented by Wrabel’s vocals. Both renditions are must-haves for any dance music fan.

Tchami – Untrue


Within the annals of music history, Parisians have always seemed to loom near the forefront of the next big sounds, especially within the confines of electronic music. Tchamihas been the latest French producer to really steal everyones heart through releasing some of the choicest cuts of house, deep-house and future thus far in 2014 and his latest single “Untrue” -which officially sees the light of day on April 4th through the always on point Spinnin’ camp- follows that established blueprint of bouncy, emotive but subdued dance instrumentation. Every one of Tchami’s compressed kicks or muted bass stabs serves a necessary purpose in the construction of “Untrue”, which effortlessly climbs to it first build before delving into a rousing lead synth playing in harmony with such an infectious, clubby bassline. Be on the lookout for more inviting tunes from Tchami, and if you were wanting to stumble a little further down the rabbit hole with the mysterious producer, check out his official Soundcloud here.

Vindata Releases Debut EP, …For One To Follow, via Symbols Recordings

The emerging Los Angeles duo, Vindata, has released its debut EP, …For One To Follow, via Kastle’s Symbols Recordings. It is an impressive feat for an artist to have such a defined sound from the beginning. They’ve delivered a dynamic EP that starts off slow with the soulful voice of London’s Kenzie May but soon quickens with very rapid and catchy percussion and vocal rhythms. The real fun starts with “Bad Dreams”, a club jam that will have everyone checking their phone. “Recognize” is filled with low-end, rapid fire kicks and vocal edits and a big half time switch up. Finally, “Exposé” wraps up this perfect EP with a unique club tune that could easily work at the upcoming summer festivals. If you are in Los Angeles, check Vindata in Hollywood at Sound Nightclub on March 6th alongside other Symbols artists, Kastle, Sweater Beats and Lindsay Lowend – more info here.

Purchase the EP on iTunes.
