Zhu has become a formidable force within the regions of electronic music with a style which stands out from amongst the crowd. With the ‘GenerationWhy‘ album becoming a huge hit amongst various other singles, the world and reputation around Zhu just seems to be getting bigger and bigger. And now we have the ‘stardustexhalemarrakechdreams‘ EP. What a title.
There is always a serious amount of hype which surrounds a Zhu release. Whether it be the ‘Generationwhy’ album or the single releases such as ‘Nightcrawler‘ and ‘Intoxicate‘. It is a different hype, where you expect the unexpected. Now we have the pleasure of a four track EP titled ‘stardustexhalemarrakechdreams’ which is essentially the title of all four tracks which have been included in the EP. This is a wonderful new EP from Zhu.
The first track on the EP is ‘Stardust‘, the intro and this sets the tone of nicely with those soothing Zhu sounds. Electronic bliss as the synths rivet through the track, with stunning vocals. A beautiful piece of work. Following on from this is ‘Exhale‘ and again it has those iconic Zhu sounds. Bringing together elements such as the strings to ramp up the tension and bringing through a wonderful deep flowing bass line, it just fuses beautifully together, especially when the vocals come through. This is one which powers out with the energy.
‘Chasing Marrakech‘ is the third single and again it seems to have this deep flowing bass line brought through by the synths and the drums. Adding in a vocal sample to change up the tone it seems to be a real enthralling production. This is some of Zhu’s best pieces of work. And finally on the ‘stardustexhalemarrakechdreams’ EP is the single we have all been waiting for. Zhu and Nero have teamed up once more for ‘Dreams‘ and this is a heavy piece of work. Atmospheric, energetic yet hard hitting, it’s everything which you want. This is going to be a fan favourite.
