Ever since writing about ZHU back in April this year, he’s been climbing up those ranks. In particular, the Australian audience has really responded to his club-ready dance music.
triple j was actually the first station in the world to play his breakthrough single “Faded” and as a special treat for his Australian fans, he’s released a very chill house cover of the CHVRCHES song “Gun”. While it’s hard to beat the excellent band that is CHVRCHES, this cover is a really great interpretation – ZHU can seemingly do no wrong so far.
It lines up nicely for his upcoming tour here with Listen Out, which kicks off next weekend through Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Hometown: LA, US.
Latest EP: The Nightday EP, out 12 April 2014.
Sounds like: Disclosure, Duke Dumont.
Say what? As discussed in our first review of ZHU, he still hasn’t officially revealed his identity. However, it’s widely speculated his full name is Steven “Esteban” Zhu.
