Last year, ZHU became an overnight phenomenon and one of the most recognizable names in dance music thanks to his unique production style, his choice to remain unknown, and the breakout success of his hit single “Faded,” which was later nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 2015 Grammy Awards.
After over a year of relative silence, the mysterious producer has at last returned with the premiere of “Automatic” featuring AlunaGeorge, the leading single off his new project: the Genesis Series. The track, which debuted as BBC Radio 1’s The Hottest Record in the World, is a noticeable evolution from his smash “Faded,” with a dark and heavy layered bassline, groovy synths, splashes of buoyant piano chords, complimentary silky vocals from AlunaGeorge front-woman Aluna Francis and even a saxophone riff to close out the record. “When I’m with you, you’re the only one, it’s automatic.” It’s major!
ZHU also revealed that the very special guests set to take part in the Genesis Series will include: Skrillex, A-Trak, Gallant, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
