The always entertaining ZHU went back to the top of our radar last week with the launch of a new mysterious generationwhy.com website. The website featured names of artists ranging from current icons like Skrillex, A-Trak, and AlunaGeorge to classics including Bones Thugs & Harmony and Trombone Shorty amongst more, which leads us to believe he has a star-studded project of some sort on his hands.
This is confirmed today after he leaked out a lengthy preview clip of what sounds like a song featuring the vocals from AlunaGeorge. We did digging and she did, "accidentally" or not, leak info earlier this week about having a track coming with ZHU.
Listen to the clip below, which was sent to people that signed up on the new website and features an animation to go along with the track that sounds pretty great. We are told to expect the full track later this week, but for now enjoy the first bit of new ZHU all year. Enjoy!
It’s been well over a year since ZHU broke into dance music's elite after TSIS helped share his mysteriously infectious tracks including his remix of Outkast without identifying an artist name. This eventually led to the successful release of his breakout single "Faded" and the Grammy nominated The Nightday EP.
While many fretted over the producers identity — with some believing it was a side project of Disclosure or Skrillex – ZHU took his mysterious brand to the live space playing select shows across the globe while displaying his art driven production to audiences. Even when playing in-front of festival and venue crowds, ZHU still managed to keep his identity masked behind a LED screen and projection mapping while stunning audiences worldwide.
It's been awhile since we've heard from ZHU, but he just launched a brand new website – generationwhy.com – and it's full of cryptic, Matrix style text. Through this text there appears to be various artists names floating around. We've included a screenshot of the website, with the page brightened up to see the artists.
We see Skrillex, Bone Thugs N Harmony, A-Trak, AlunaGeorge, Gallant amongst multiple others. Since ZHU seems to be far past his remix days, we can safely assume this is his unique way of sharing to the world that he has tracks with these artists, possible on one cohesive album / EP / project of some sort?
For now it's just speculation, but ZHU hasn't led us wrong in the past. Enjoy!
While often a silent, no facial expression given figure, DJ Snake extraordinary rise to the top of dance music is a humbling one at best. The Paris born producer broke onto the radar in 2012 with the summertime anthem "Bird Machine," and has never look backed since. He even nabbed a Grammy nomination for his chart smashing single "Turn Down For What" with Lil' Jon among many other accolades this year.
As the world waits on the prominent figures next step, DJ Snake tops off his incredible year with an official music video for his "You Know You Like It" collaboration with UK vocalist AlunaGeorge. The visual direction focuses on an Ape (or, perhaps an orangutan… i'm unsure) who's depicted as a pusher of sorts. His seedy dealings are strung together via an engaging storyboard that coincides with the songs attractive production and lush vocals.

Today we have the latest from Pomo, the exciting producer out of Montreal, who is apart of the HW&W Records family (Kaytranada, Sweater Beats, Ta-Ku and more). We get our ears on one of his most impressive tracks all year, remixing UK duo AlunaGeorge's single "Supernatural". Drawing drum inspiration from label mate Kaytra and fusing these beats with a beefy bassline and catchy melodies we are left with an instant hit. Drawing influences of nu-disco, hip-hop, future bass and more it's impossible to comfortably throw this one in just one genre, which is what Pomo loves. This is stream only until the official release comes out along with the other remixes of the song. Enjoy!

BONUS: Because the song wasn't featured when it dropped last year, here is the also increidble Pomo edit of Sade's "Nothing Can Come Between Us."
