Another installment of New Orleans festival Voodoo has officially arrived, bringing 65-plus acts across diverse genres together for one jam-packed Halloween weekend. Taking place in New Orleans’ City Park on the Festival Grounds during weekend of October 25-27, the music and arts experience has attracted more than 2000 artists to play since its 1999 debut. Voodoo’s programming traditionally focused on rock and punk artists, having hosted Marilyn Manson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Duran Duran, Nine Inch Nails—to name a few. However, over the past years Voodoo Fest has notably expanded their roster to an eclectic curation of genres; electronic has undeniably crept in as a prominent one.

This year, Voodoo welcomes headliners Guns N’ Roses, Post Malone, and Beck while simultaneously featuring big electronic acts including Bassnectar, ZHU, REZZ, The Glitch Mob, Big Gigantic, and more. Newcomers disrupting the scene like WHIPPED CREAM, Elohim, Peekaboo, and k?d also grace the lineup.

GA three-day tickets start at $140 and go on sale at 10 a.m. CST June 6. See the full lineup below and purchase tickets here.

Few electronic artists’ productions are as idiosyncratically cinematic as ZHU‘s. The producer who frequently lends his own characteristically breathy vocals to his tracks commands a musical mystique that was amplified with the release of his 2018 album, Ringo’s Desert. The producer’s sophomore LP arrived as a sensuous, cross-genre scorcher that showed off ZHU’s signature, haunting vocals, while all the time seeking to evoke the landscape of the desert.

The environmentally influenced concept album channeled the desert’s scorching conditions into the effort’s production, as ZHU lyrically recounted the demise of a relationship that once simmered with heat, only to eventually burn out. Given its breadth of musical emotionality and mainstream appeal via collaborations with heavyweights such as Tame Impala, Ringo’s Desert cinched ZHU Dancing Astronaut’s nomination for 2018’s Album of the Year.

ZHU will appear at New York’s Governors Ball festival on June 1, to deliver an affective live performance that will be followed by hosted at Brooklyn mainstay, Schimanski. Dancing Astronaut has compiled five of ZHU’s most dexterous catalog inclusions ahead of the enigmatic producer’s back-to-back appearances.

1. “In The Morning” – ZHU

The third track listing on ZHU’s debut LP, GENERATIONWHY, “In The Morning” touts many of the elements signature to a ZHU production: a moody, sultry overall feel, ZHU’s own tantalizing vocals, a grounded bass line, and synth arrangements that effect sonic drama. ZHU couples low piano notes at the song’s opening with his vocals to set the tone early in the production.

2. “Automatic” -ZHU, AlunaGeorge

The synergy of ZHU and AlunaGeorge‘s vocal talents radiates with an indisputable brilliance on “Automatic.” The vocalists’ duet is a sensuous conversational interplay conducted through verse. A highlight of the plucky house number is the sax solo that closes out the track at song’s end. “Automatic” graces ZHU’s 2015 EP, Genesis Series.

3. “Cocaine Model” -ZHU

Perhaps one of the songs that best focalizes the sensual filminess of ZHU’s vocals, “Cocaine Model” is a light producer with a gossamer sonic sexiness. ZHU’s vocals float atop lush pads, as the track’s beat pulsates forward. The easy flowing number centralizes sumptuous melodies, which function as hallmarks of the tune’s makeup, second only to ZHU’s silky vocals.

4. “One Kiss (with Dua Lipa) ” – Calvin Harris (ZHU Remix)

ZHU reframed Calvin Harris‘  Dua Lipa-assisted smash single in a rework that significantly slowed the pace of Harris’ original. ZHU distorts Dua Lipa’s vocal, casting a tonal shroud over her contribution to deepen the singer’s verses. Sung contributions from ZHU himself filter in as the remix develops. The titillatingly dark take indulges in low seated rhythms and arpeggiated synths, to yield a re-imaginative effort that offers a house stylization distinctly different from Harris’ own.

5. “Still Want U” – ZHU, Karnaval Blues

Doleful lyrical confession characterizes “Still Want U,” a cut that hails from ZHU’s 2018 effort, Ringo’s Desert Pt. 1. “Still Want U” is a downtempo showing that connects the producer with fellow vocalist, Karnaval Blues. ZHU and Karnaval Blues’ vocals are a piercing combination.

Oftentimes, the festival outfit plays an integral role in one’s attendance of the festival itself. In many cases, the drip—if you will, is a crucial element to one’s festival experience, and perhaps none understand that notion better than ZHU, who dusted any potential competition with his EDC getup.

ZHU hit EDC Las Vegas this year sporting a custom jacket made entirely out of festival wristbands, for one of the more creative outfits spotted at this year’s event. The jacket, a living festival homage, features fan-donated wristbands from previous EDCs, Dreamscape, Lollapalooza, Coachella, Tyler, the Creator‘s Camp Flog Gnaw, and many more.

Good Morning Mix: Stream ZHU’s climactic Lollapalooza Argentina setZhu

ZHU recently stopped by Lollapalooza Argentina to spin his signature brand of dark sonic magic. A tantalizing blend of catalog staples and newer releases alike, ZHU’s set opens with the producer’s breathy live rendition of ZHU classic, “In The Morning.” ZHU glides from one track to the next, with an atmospheric fluidity aided offset by the texture of the live instrumentation that guides the performance. Rugged guitar riffs provide contrast to the smooth tone of a saxophone, while rhythmic synth work lends a punchy sultriness to the showing.

ZHU’s set indulges the electronic envelope pusher’s shadowy mystique in its early inclusion cuts from his Ringo’s Desert saga, like “Desert Woman,” and “Save Me.” The idiosyncratic, crepuscular groove characteristic of ZHU’s sound grows increasingly potent as the set progresses, with Just A Gent‘s remix of ZHU’s own “Superfriends,” and a deep flip of “Working For It.” ZHU effortlessly interweaves sonic sleekness with more gritty trappings, the tail-end of the set a heavy hitting finale to the refined affair.
