The enigmatic producer known as Zhu finally unleashed his first full length album, Generationwhy, which debuted in July at number one on the iTunes Dance/Electronic Albums chart and number one on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart.

The 14-track LP effort featured critically acclaimed singles "In the Morning," "Hometown Girl" and "Palm of my Hand," plus the bonus collaborative track "Working for It" with Skrillex and THEY.

After releasing an enthralling short film directed by American Millennial last month to accompany the album, Zhu is back with the first remix package for his LP debut.

Zhu tapped fan favorite and emerging artists Big Wild, Leon Lour and Louis Futon to take on the title track and popular single "Generationwhy."

While Big Wild flips the title track entirely into an indie dance groove tinged with hazy synths, Leon Lour adds dreamy synth melodies that build and break into an infectious and euphoric dance number. Louis Futon gives "Generationwhy" his signature future bass treatment complete plenty of catchy vocal chops.
