Its been over 6th months since ZHU took on the enormous project “52 to ZHU”. A track a week for an entire year? Yeah, lots of people probably thought the dude was crazy. Conservative thought would lead you to believe that maintaining quality and substance would be nearly imposible. Well, like the Honey Badger, ZHU don’t give a sh*t. The production Dj hasn’t missed a beat in 28 weeks. Now thats commitment. Below I have singled out my preferred tracks since I last covered ZHU in week 6.
52 to ZHU
2011 is a year of innovation, technology, and dance music. No one resembles this better than Los Angeles based producer/DJ ZHU. “52 to ZHU” is a challenge that ZHU has instilled on himself. Release one track a week, for a year. It may sound simple, but coming up with new ideas, melodies, sounds, and all the subtle nuances that complete ZHU’s music can be overwhelming, yet he stays focused and determined to complete this task. This is ZHU’s journey to find his role as an artist and to share this journey with music lovers worldwide. After working with record producer/songwriter Sundafu Kawah (Katy Perry, Jojo, Jennifer Hudson), ZHU matured in his composition skills. Already supported by many DJs, with upcoming releases on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records, ZHU is ready to share his music with the world
