On the heels of ZHU‘s debut EP, ‘The Nightday,’ we have today some ocular treats in the form of monochrome flesh in dresses. Said EP has been storming iTune’s dance charts, topping off Australia with a few weeks at #1 and generally getting nods from everyone all around. Oh and also he of course directed the video as well.
Been hyped on ZHU for ages. Been offered up my co-sign. Breakthrough Artist of 2014. The latest from him just solidifies his mastery of the elusive and fickle form of a deep groove in pop music’s sonic landscape.
“Once again, ZHU’s flawless vocals steal the show in the new single, but the House/Garage crossover groove lying underneath is also nothing short of spectacular. It’s artists like ZHU that are following just steps behind the Disclosure lads, manufacturing productions that live as perfectly on the dance floor as they do on mainstream radio.”
Seems Bristol may not be the only bass-built UK City to spawn true dirtybird talent. Midway up the little island the city of Birmingham is boiling its bins and splitting its subs with the sounds of Hannah Wants and Chris Lorenzo. Hannah & Chris kicked off their year with the mighty ‘Dappy‘, a crew favorite from Food recordings. Hannah has been red hot on tour throughout the UK and Chris is finally stepping out of the shadows of being a ghost writer for over 6 years, now working on several projects including Cause & Effect, collabs with Pete Graham and countless other productions. “Kneadin” has provoked more reaction than almost any other track in the sets of dirtybird this summer hitting a pinnacle at Hideout festival in Croatia when it was played 5 times in one day (over two events) by Justin Martin, VonStroke & Eats Everything! Listen below and grab it today on Beatport.
Nothing is impossible. Boiler Room took over a penthouse suite at the W Hotel London and threw the badman Skream on the decks b2b with phenom duo Disclosure, in 70 minutes of incredible music and (what looked like) one hell of a party. Watch this madness and get inspired.
On June 11th, UK producer Mosca will be releasing his newest EP, Eva Mendes, via Hypercolour. Eva Mendes is Mosca’s first release this year, which is not surprising for a producer well known to take his sweet time mastering every aspect of his productions. The EP marks a transition away from his 2-step and garage influences as Mosca begins to experiment with four-to-the-floor house beats. Mosca was kind enough to preview the entire EP on his Soundcloud before the release date, so grab your headphones, and prepare for another flawless EP from Mosca.
