Listen to the leaked teaser of ZHU & A-Trak’s collaboration
Details of ZHU’s Genesis Project are slowly but surely unraveling, and the album’s first single, “Automatic” with Alunageorge, is succeeding in keeping fans pleased but wanting more. The producer recently unveiled the album’s collaboration details, which will feature work with artists like Skrillex, Bone Thugs n Harmony, and Gallant.
ZHU also hinted at a collaboration with producer A-Trak and vocalist Keznamdi, which now has an official teaser. Previewed in a 1 minute and 30 second clip, “As Crazy As It Is” is a dub-heavy track that is strongly supported by reggae influences. Complete with wavy bass, funky synths, and crooning vocals, “As Crazy As It Is” demonstrates just how effortlessly Zhu flipped a smooth-jazz aesthetic into something entirely his own.
Watch the teaser for “As Crazy As It Is,” which features black-and-white footage of a prominent woman being assassinated in front of a theater. Fans of Zhu can register their email at GenerationWhy.com to stay on top of forthcoming announcements.
