ZHU: Faded – The Remixes [Remix EP Stream]

Words by Jacqui Wonder.

2014 man of the moment ZHU today releases the ‘Faded (Remixes) EP’ full to the brim with talent – enjoy The Magician, ODESZA, TÂCHES, Lido and AMTRAC‘s take on the hit track that has put the mystery producer on the map.

The showcasing breadth of talent offer up a taste of dub-inspired, progressive house, chill-wave and some jungle-bass driven dancefloor bait.

Known and crushed-on for his ‘Magic Tape’ series, The Magician offers up said dancefloor bait as a perfect addition to any night’s lineup.

Seattle duo ODESZA slow things down with a synth-rich dub featuring some new vocals that are the perfect meeting of minds between the duo’s and ZHU‘s unconventional styles. More than once I’ve found myself totally forgetting where I am and what I was supposed to be doing while listening to this – perhaps avoid operating heavy machinery with this one on.

I couldn’t write about this EP without mentioning Lido‘s take on proceedings. The ‘Faded’ track always had a writhing, not-so-subtle undercurrent of sexiness in the midst, and Lido dials that up a notch by stripping the track right back to a dub-inspired mix and layering in samples of mangled R&B vocals, ringtones, explosions and glittery synth. It’s not the obvious one, but this offering from the Oslo based upstart is my pick of the lot.

Stream the entire five-track remix EP right here.
