EDC Las Vegas‘ 2020 Virtual-Rave-A-Thon kicked off May 15, much to fans’ mised feelings. On the one hand, dismay over the actual event being cancelled during the same weekend, and on the other, gratitude for Pasquale Rotella and his Insomniac team putting on a top-notch production online. The three-day event saw three days worth of music from many other fan favorites such as 12th Planet, Claude VonStroke, Ekali, Kaskade, Zeds Dead, and plenty of other talented music producers. During the weekend, there were plenty of stand out sets, but none more than ZHU.
The LA-based producer pulled out all the stops in his 45-minute set. Set in a dimly-lit warehouse setting, ZHU plays the decks amidst hundreds of mannequins and roams around the industrial setting. He also invited his go-to saxophonist and guitar bandmate, whom each take on their own solo portions in aught. ZHU even sang Radiohead’s “Creep” live, which is a bold move in itself. Given how ZHU was able to nail those high notes, it’s a song that many fans wouldn’t mind seeing during one of his live sets in the future.
Although set has come and gone, ZHU has graciously uploaded in it’s entirety to YouTube. Now, those who were unable to catch the event still have the chance to experience ZHU’s enthralling performance. Also, view the full tracklist here.
