Listen To ZHU’s Surprise "Blacklizt" Techno Set From Coachella This Year

If you’ve been a fan of electronic music over the past few years, then there’s a good chance you’ve had the opportunity to catch ZHU live, either at city stop or on the festival circuit. Although the obscure, enigmatic artist has recently just announced a full North American tour following the release of his latest acclaimed album, Ringo’s Desert Pt. 1, ZHU is already finding a way to switch things up. During a surprise appearance at the Do LaB stage at Coachella this year, ZHU threw down a “Blacklizt” set. The differences between a standard ZHU set and a Blacklizt set haven’t been made explicitly clear, but based on what we’ve heard and seen so far, it sounds like Blacklizt is ZHU’s techno persona.

Throughout the entire set, we can hear different unidentifiable techno remixes of classic ZHU tracks like “Working For It,” “Automatic,” “Intoxicate,” “In The Morning,” and plenty more. The music sounds like unmistakable ZHU, but in a way we’ve never heard before, and quite frankly, we’re loving every bit of it. During the second half of the Blacklizt set, ZHU transitions into tracks that we’re more familiar with, ultimately concluding some heavier sounds like his collab with Ekali.

This is the first actual full listen of ZHU’s Blacklizt project that we’ve been able to get our hands on, and we can only hope for more. There’s only one official scheduled “Blacklizt” date in the future, and it’ll be during Splash House in Palm Springs, California, which takes place June 8-10.

In the meantime, do yourself a favor and listen to the even darker side of ZHU, with this full stream of his surprise Blacklizt set at Coachella. Enjoy!

Barclay Crenshaw Unleashes Dreamy Remix Of Bon Iver’s “715 - CRΣΣKS”

Claude VonStroke took the stage at Coachella’s Gobi Tent this past weekend in the form of his experimental bass alter ego Barclay Crenshaw. Although Claude has performed at some of the biggest events in the world, this was his biggest appearance as Barclay Crenshaw so far. To celebrate, Barclay has decided to unleash one of his secret weapons that he’s been utilizing in his live sets, his remix of Bon Iver’s “715 - CRΣΣKS

Bon Iver’s original tune is a brief acapella that features Justin Vernon’s distinguished autotuned voice, a track that most would consider to be an interlude on their full length album 22, A Million. Barclay takes this all the empty space in “715 - CRΣΣKS” and fleshes it out to turn into a full, cohesive track.

It’s not often that remixes can blow original tracks out of the water, but that’s exactly what Barclay Crenshaw accomplished with this new release. In fact, this may even replace Bon Iver’s original tune in our music library completely. Keep up the good work, Barclay. Enjoy!
