The ZHU and Skrillex collab has finally been revealed
Two of LA’s most buzzworthy producers, ZHU and Skrillex, have finally brought their collaboration out of the shadows. For months, both producers have been the focal point of numerous rumors, including the laughable assumption that ZHU = Skrillex. The first official play through of the pair’s collaboration made waves at CRSSD Festival during ZHU’s crowd-pleasing performance and a high quality snippet has emerged as part of the forthcoming Genesis Series — a project that many fans assume will be a full length album.
The result is “Working For It,” a three way collaboration between ZHU, Skrillex and fellow Mind of a Genius labelmates THEY. Each artists’ representative styles jostle for position in the mix and end up crafting a cut designed for windows down, volume up, night drives and dirty dancefloors. ZHU’s unique musicianship paired with the grungy sound design that Skrillex built his career on work in tandem to bolster THEY’s attention grabbing versework. Each artist’s impact is obvious in the mix; delicate plucks, sensual harmonies and explosive bass lines all fire at once, cementing “Working For It” as another surefire fan favorite in ZHU’s ever-expanding catalog.
