Zhu-Live-Australia-Faded-2014-Listen-Up

The enigmatic producer ZHU who we've reported about since his unreal Outkast cover / mashup "Moves Like Ms. Jackson" sweet the electronic music world has finally moved into the live performance realm, playing his first show ever this past weekend down in Australia at Listen Out Festival. We have our hands on a video shot by a fan attending the festival who managed to catch the impressive live setup. It appears that he has a screen with a projection covering the entire stage, with a custom Z shaped DJ booth and lights behind him. The fan who recorded the video said you could see his face and silhouette, which added a level of personality, yet kept things very under wraps in typical ZHU-like fashion.

US Fans: Also we have some exciting news for all our US fans, ZHU will be bringing over his live show to America for the first time playing a huge set at HARD's "Day of the Dead" festival. More details below.

HARD Presents social media began blacking out and revealing parts of ZHU's cryptic branding. It has just been confirmed that he will be performing at HARD Day of the Dead festival. His inclusion on one of the most impressive dance festival lineups of the year should not be missed.

Coachella weekend has been filled with surprises thus far and legendary rapper Nas not only delivered an energized set, but possibly the biggest guest appearance of the weekend. Nas celebrated the occasion with a special tribute to one of the most iconic albums in hip-hop, playing his Illmatic album in full for it's 20th year anniversary. 

If that wasn't enough on it's own, he participated in Coachella's spirit by bringing out a very very special surprise guest, fellow New York hip-hop icon Jay-Z (who he once had a huge feud with), to perform "Dead Presidents" and "Where I'm From". Nas snuck in a few other hits including "One Mic" and "Made You Look". To help end the set, he brought Diddy out for "Hate Me Now". All together it was easily one of the most entertaining hip-hop sets we have ever seen. Stream the entire performance below and enjoy!

      "I F*cking Love My Life Right Now…"

The words echoed throughout a packed audience within the Sahara Tent at Coachella Music Festival as Skrillex, one of the top producer / DJs of our current electronic music generation, took the stage full of zest and sporting a brand new production rig for his one of a kind "mothership". Sensory overload was greeted with an engaging performance from the OWSLA kingpin as a combination of stunning visuals on display for the first time and tailored specifically for this set, coincided with the artists signature delivery of music spanning multiple genres. Yes, bass music was the main focal point of the performances as were tracks off Skrillex's recent debut artists album Recess, but the rawness and fearlessness to transition into hip-hop/rap, place an interlude featuring MGMT's "Kids", and having guest appearances from Dillon Francis and A$AP Rocky made the set as special for those in attendance or watching at home could have asked for. Stream the set below via SoundCloud or Youtube below and above all… Enjoy!
