ZHU reflects on whirlwind year, looks to the future [Q&A]

It’s been a prolific year for ZHU. 2020 has seen a slew of remixes and collaborations on the part of the pioneering producer, in addition to the September release of “Risky Business,” his first solo track since 2018. ZHU certainly hasn’t been skimping on the music front, and has also simultaneously dipped his toes into a variety of diverse and eclectic multi-disciplinary projects. In May, ZHU announced that he would be partnering with Luminosity Gaming as a content creator in an alliance that would allow him to push the boundaries of dance music’s burgeoning relationship with the e-sports realm. Throughout the COVID-19 quarantine, ZHU has also been a regular livestreamer, broadcasting his sets to fans worldwide. On October 8, ZHU will unsurprisingly continue his tireless, cross-industry efforts by putting his mark on the first-ever Tito’s Made to Order Festival, developed to benefit the World Central Kitchen, an organization working to provide meals for those in need during the pandemic. In an interview with Dancing Astronaut, ZHU discusses his latest projects, the realities of performing via livestream, and how quarantine has pushed him to explore.
