Reaching: basic chords but fits perfectly with female vocals. I want to sit them down and explain to them that if that were the case, then everyone would do it. Found a tracklisting and was able to put the songs in the order they were released but it's not complete. That being said, I find some of this shit bangsssss. Maybe consider an update to your tracklist! Instead, I choose to grind my teeth and turn up the bass in hopes of drowning out the wretched blasphemy spewing from their country-music loving mouths. Thanks for the amazing work! Do keep in mind that the 52 to Zhu and Introducing Zhu stuff is a completely different project, that is why they have tried so hard to keep it off youtube, soundcloud, etc.
Vocals also seem to be too high pitched at some point where it reaches a point of breakage. I think I expected something else. I think it will grow on me though. I'll really enjoy this in the car. My thoughts on new tracks Cold blooded: good sax and an excellent synth section. I can see why some would not enjoy that though.
Which is odd as it seems a bit like electro swing which I'm usually fond of. Listened to it through Spotify and don't know if it's the compression previously or just getting used to it, but suddenly the instruments have bite and everything sounds 'alive'. If anyone has a piece they wanna add feel free. This, is an impressive compilation. A bit too chill actually. One minute to midnight: I like how this almost feels like Mexican meets house. Our situation just got a whole lot better.
Numb: good track that keeps getting better as the song progresses. As the police sirens blare and an imaginary skyline glows in the distance, Zhu keeps things moving with his stylish, conceptual first foray, Generationwhy. It starts so well and then only down-hill from there. Over 125 years later, it is safe to say that Columbia Records, now part of the Sony Music Group, has established itself a timeless icon in music. As always I'm digging the dark vocals which clashes very well with the light chords.
Could use a kicker in terms of its chords though Hometown girl: really enjoyable chill thing. So why did I begin this with a paragraphical rant about fun-hating low lives? With great carriage Electrify me: dissapointed. Good life: great riff combined with outstanding vocals. The album is tightly focused with a deep house rhythm bubbling from start to finish. I don't like the commentary in Good Life personally. Decent range in vocals Secret weapon : lovely vibes here.
Week 39 - Sex is sometimes. Last week, on July 29 th, Zhu might as well have been our beloved Saint Nick; rather than navigating a pack of mythical dear across the globe, Zhu delivered present after present to his believers in the form of a 14-track rhythmical masterpiece. Thought Secret Weapon would be a lot better than what it is. Not necessarily better because I think it is good for the genre he is going for but I was hoping and getting hyped for something a bit more punchy and dark with the less light playful theme. Tracks seamlessly blend together, offering a consistent experience, with a handful of standouts that perk up to keep the energy flowing. Reminds me of old deadmau5 kinda.
Near perfect pitch in vocals. Has a smooth line throughout that is enjoyable for single plays at a time. I just copied it from youtube's comment section. Great instrumentals in the last half. Did some diggin' online and found some of the tracks Zhu was releasing weekly for his 52 to Zhu series. Sadly I have no time marks.
I actually think that the narration adds to the soul of the track. I think this will grow even more on me and actually become one of my favourites on here. Dunno if it goes in the 52 to Zhu tape but it's in there. Smoky jazz flourishes, '80s cop-drama guitar licks, and tinkling piano embellish Zhu's neo-lounge aesthetic, which makes for a cool and entertaining experience. And it is an interesting insight into a hardworking producer that eventually became the Zhu we know and love today. With the exception of the end sequence the instrumentals seem very basic.
Also, some of his other stuff below too. Almost regret that I heard the leaked version - it's like stale bread vs. I'm still unsure about One Minute to Midnight. Vocals don't flow properly with the beat for the first half. . Founded all the way back in 1887, the company is now the oldest surviving brand name in recorded sound, and only the second to produce recorded records.
Particularly the playful dropUnderwhelming zhu vocals as they seem offbeat at some points but well performed by the female. Generationwhy, the debut effort from electronic producer Zhu, is the neon noir soundtrack for the future-past, at once nostalgic and innovative in its combination of funky throwback influences and forward-thinking production. . . .
