Over the years, ZHU has earned endless acclaim for his forward-looking vision. Now the globally popular artist has released his new mixtape, Musical Chairs Mixtape (Vol. 1) via Astralwerks. After having teased the release with a virtual game of musical chairs for fans to play online, ZHU announced the seven-track mixtape ahead of his headlining set at Lollapalooza. The best part is that its one of multiple installments to come.
Musical Chairs Mixtape (Vol. 1) features seven brand-new tracks that offer up a kaleidoscopic range of moods, styles and tempos, all tied together by ZHU’s atmospheric production and distinctive vocals. He’s joined by chart-topping UK artist Elderbrook on the buoyant “Unbothered.” Other collaborators include Mr. Carmack, Channel Tres, Kiko Franco, Boy Matthews, partywithray, Phil Scully, Bava, sillygirlcarmen, Rush Davis, JADED, Mitch Bell, and Aaron Leibowitz. The mixtape also includes the poignant, cinematic “I Wonder,” which finds ZHU contemplating what became of someone from his past. The track has emerged as the most requested of all the new songs ZHU premiered during his EDC Las Vegas show in May.
“When I was young, we would rip our favorite songs off the radio straight onto cassettes. I wanted to make something that reminded my fans of an era that was more physical.”– ZHU
Musical Chairs Mixtape (Vol. 1) is ZHU’s first release since December 2021, when he dropped DREAMLAND (DELUXE), which included seven tracks that did not appear on the original album. Stream his newest cohesive installment below.
