Back in October 2023, Australian producer ZUSO teamed up with the Sydney-based collective LOVE CLVB for the launch of his single ‘Hold Me‘, which we’ve had on heavy high-rotation over the Aussie summer, and I’m very excited to see that he has more new music for us already.
This week ZUSO is giving us another soothing atmospheric piece, this one is titled ‘In The Dark’, it features the ethereal voice of Californian artist KORA, and it stands as another testament to ZUSO’s exceptional production sound & style.
“I wanted to give this song a bit of a dark tone whilst also making it still fun and hooky. It’s written from the perspective of being left in the unknown, whether that’s in a relationship or with someone that’s special to you. It draws upon those emotions with a somewhat gloomy but optimistic feel. I wanted to make it fun whilst also painting that picture and feel, the fast tempo drums and breakbeats make it more uplifting and contrasts quite nicely with that theme. Overall, it was a fun song to write, big ups to Kora as well who sings the lead vocal, her voice really bought the song to life and adds such a hooky layer to the song. Hope you all enjoy it.” ~ ZUSO
