ZHU announces surprise Disclosure collaboration
March 2019 has been good for electronic music. Flume, Tame Impala, Shlohmo, and Apparat are a few of the names who’ve put out stunning new music since the start of the month. ZHU and Disclosure are adding themselves to the mix now, it seems, following a now-deleted Instagram story announcing a collaborative piece that would be released during the last week of the month.
“Zhu + Disclosure Next Week” was all the note stated in ZHU’s Instagram storyline on March 24; but those four words were enough to immediately stir a worldwide frenzy. Both musicians are trailblazers in their own right, carving their own niches in the crossover space with infectious blends of pop, house, and bass elements seen in anthems like “Latch” and “Wasted.” ZHU released his critically acclaimed Ringo’s Desert, while Disclosure are coming off a world tour announcement that coincides with their third album release. Time will tell just how complementary their sounds are.
