New York is familiar stomping grounds for ZHU. Back in 2014, he confirmed his first series of headlining shows to take place in New York after covering certain corners of the city with posters that featured his signature "Z" symbol as the centerpiece. This is when he unveiled The Nightday Experience, which smartly tied in with the release of his Nightday EP

He has now revealed a secret warehouse show that's running with his new storyline, The Blacklizt. The buzz around Blacklitz first began when he dropped his "Nightcrawler" single. A little less than two weeks later, he premiered his Gorillaz remix at Ultra and announced that there would be a Blacklizt event coming at some point. Well that day has finally come. June 24 and 25 are the newly announced dates for the Blacklizt and will be taking place at a secret warehouse. Stay tuned for more details on the event. Enjoy!

ZHU Shares Dark House Single "Nightcrawler" + Announces 'The Blacklizt'


A few days ago, ZHU uploaded a video to Instagram with the caption, "join the Blacklizt". By the end of the minute-long, black and white video, a list of eight crossed-out names on a casket were shown including acts like Marshmello, The Chainsmokers and more. After the first listen through, we had a good feeling that  ZHU was not only making a statement, but teasing new music of his. Our hunch was right as he now shares "Nightcrawler", a moody house tune that incorporates dark ambient pads and a bouncy bassline. 

The beauty of "Nightcrawler" is in it's layering, gradually adding on new elements like bright orchestral strings, crisp percussion, soft piano keys and ZHU's smooth vocals alongside vocal samples. Beyond the song, the meaning behind it is what we're still wondering about. He announced THE BLACKLIZT today, but has yet to reveal exactly what the announcement is all about. Whether it be a new EP, album or events, you can plug in your phone number to his new website,, where updates will be provided. Stay tuned for more details and in the meantime, listen to "Nightcrawler" below. Enjoy!
