ZHU never fails to keep things interesting for his fans and preserve his mysterious online persona, while obviously managing to be constantly releasing quality music. From his latest stardustexhalemarrakechdreams EP, to his stunning remix of Camelphat's hit "Cola", where he added his own vocals and lyrics, one can easily tell that ZHU isn't simply still riding off the hype of his single "Faded" of even his debut album Generationwhy, but is still progressing as an artist and trying out new things.
A little before NYE, he was sending a new private track to new subscribers of The Blacklizt; a track that has now been released as "Jet, The Doberman". Although it maintains the classic ZHU touch, it less resembles his usual releases and more the track "Exhale" out of his stardustexhalemarrakechdreams EP.
Jet, The Doberman is essentially everything one looks out for in a classic Trap banger. Deep samples and a dark atmosphere set the mood before the familiar plucks, brass hits and booming 808s are introduced and a hard Trap beat takes over. Interestingly enough, ZHU's vocals are not featured on the track, but he makes up for it with the use of a vocal sample that dominates the second drop.
