Gorillaz x ZHU Works Like a Charm

Lately, Gorillaz have been killing it. They did everything they could to drum up excitement for months leading the release of new music and since then they've withstood all that hype by continuing to release exciting music. Adding to all that hype are artist like ZHU who took a recent release of theirs and flipped it into his own dark, deep house concoction. The original version of Andromeda features everyone's new favorite rapper D.R.A.M. and is memorable because of its theatrical, stop and go pace.

What I like most about ZHU's remix of the original is how well he amplified the "where it all goes down" vocal sample over his own beat. I didn't realize how awesome the original sample was until ZHU repeated it a few times and put it over his own beat. It's a testament to his ability to take great music and truly put his own mark on it by translating it to his own style. I probably don't need to tell you this if you're a Gorillaz fan, but they recently put out another new single with Rag‘n’Bone Man, Zebra Katz, and RAY BLK. Like much of their new music, The Apprentice an interesting concoction of styles all wrapped up in one track. Their new album, Humanz, will be dropping this Friday, so cheers to getting to unwrap that end of week present...#Humanz
