ZHU teased on social media that his upcoming release with Tame Impala is on the horizon. The track which comes to as a surprise for many fans has existed for a little bit now. ZHU first played it out at Sydney’s FOMO Festival to a crowd that responded immaculately. Tame Impala and ZHU share a
ZHU is best known for his deep house and tech edits. His original, dark and mysterious sound helped him sky rocket to fame. In his early work when he still was an anonymous artist, his productions were so good and ahead of their time, many believed the artist was actually a Skrillex side project. In
New labels are a dime a dozen these days. It seems that every week a new imprint will crop up. This is a gift as well as a curse, with so many platforms to release music off of these days it can be hard to know which labels to follow. It is rare to get
During a recent performance in China, Zhu took the opportunity to officially confirm to fans that the collaboration does in fact exist and it is underway, and later confirmed in a statement by the “Waters of Monaco” producer’s management team.
Zhu’s exciting news didn’t stop there though. The aforementioned performance in China came as part of a launch event for a new Chinese electronic dance music label called Liquid State, which will host releases from Zhu, Alan Walker, and burgeoning Chinese artists, among others in 2018. Liquid State is backed by Sony and Chinese streaming and tech powerhouse Tencent Music Entertainment. The new imprint will develop dance content with the intent of leveraging Tencent’s streaming services QQ Music, Kugou Music, and Kuwo Music to distribute said content. The move was effectively sealed by a reported 10% equity swap between Tencent and Sony’s licensing partner, Spotify, in December. Tencent, by comparison, boasts nearly double the users as Spotify across their three platforms.

ZHU has an uncanny talent for invigorating tracks with his own unique sound stamp. The Columbia Records signee has now turned his sights towards CamelPhat & Elderbrook‘s summer 2017 hit “Cola,” named the hottest record in the world by BBC Radio 1 upon its release on Defected Records.
ZHU brings on his own unique flare while doing well to churn out a lightly touched reboot that centers around elevating and equalizing Elderbrook’s crystalline voice. Layered with his signature dark sound design and lush, saturated beats, ZHU’s take on “Cola” is an exquisitely sophisticated firecracker.

Lightning in a Bottle’s strive for diversity in its programming can be best summed in music director and co-founder Jesse Flemming’s words:
“We’re definitely not trying to play the same game we are seeing with all the massive festivals these days when we book our music programming. Forget the big names you can see at 10 other festivals this year. For us the goal is to craft a musical playlist that will perfectly guide people along the experience we’re trying to create. We book each stage to be its own separate journey on any given day and we try to diversify it as much as possible so when you’re wandering around during the weekend you can always find something just right for you. This has been our goal since day one and it continues to shape how we book today.”
More information and tickets to Lightning in a Bottle, which go on-sale January 18 at 10 am PST, are available here.
