REVIEW: ZHU - "GENESIS SERIES" EP
ONE WORD: ECLECTIC
I am sad to say that the Genesis Series is only six songs long, but I am more importantly trilled to say that these six songs are not in any words a disappointment or let down from Zhu. Actually it's the exact opposite. It's one hell of a composition.With six uniquely well put together collaborations, the project as a whole shows how talented and skilled Zhu is. Not only does he take part to vocalize in his music, but the way his voice can carry a song and bring it to another level is mind blowing. From reggae to smooth jazz and old school hip-hop to deep house, his record label makes no mistake to name itself Mind of A Genius. If you thought his last EP, DAYNIGHT, was captivating with each melody and beat, Zhu's newest creation displays his artistry the finest way. I can say, by this point, Zhu is one of the most skilled and well matured artists of his time. Collaborating with artists like A-Track, AlunaGeorge, Gallant, Keznamdi, and big time DJ Skrillex, Zhu knows how to bring the best out of each collaborator. Zhu intertwines the instruments' organic sound, like the saxophone, electric guitar, and piano, with a foreground of synthesized beats and bass. While maintaining his signature sound, it's no deny this genius can make any genre of music his.
