Zhu Debuts Skrillex Collaboration At CRSSD Festival


Zhu‘s Genisis series has turned out some quality music, but the most highly anticipated track of the bunch has been his collaboration with bass music icon Skrillex. Now that the master of non-marketing has played it out live, we can confirm that it was for good reason – what we’ve heard makes us want Skrillex to trade Diplo out for Zhu the next time he decides to form an EDM super group.

While the sound quality of the videos fans captured during Zhu’s performance at CRSSD festival leaves much to be desired, what can be heard is an effective marriage between Skrillex’s avant-garde bass wobbles and Zhu’s shimmering synth melodies.

The clearest version making its rounds on social media thus far is the one below:

While neither Zhu nor Skrillex have revealed an official release date for ID (or its title, for that matter), we’ll keep you posted with more information as it becomes available. In the meantime, let us know what you think of their collaboration in the comments section below.
