We still know very little about the once anonymous artist but ZHU certainly has our attention. Odezsa has unleashed their own remix of ZHU’s biggest track yet, “Faded,” and the result is a taste of your sweet summer dreams. I hear this and I can’t help but imagine myself lying down in a canoe floating down a river on a beautiful summer night… perhaps a bit faded. The boat is swaying in the wind, but it’s still steady and sturdy. The original of course is a chugging, smokey vocal club-ready Americanized take on deep house and this remix is a bit more of the future bass, ethereal dreamscape-type stuff. Strumming guitars, heavy bass and an open-summer night sky vibe throughout make this an early favorite for festival-smashing remix of the summer.  The remix looks like it’ll be part of an official remix package alongside cuts from Taches, Lido, Amtrac, and The Magician but at the very least it’s dropping on June 29 via Mind of A Genius so stream for now and cop it then.
