ZHU is ready to move again. After spending a year stuck inside, the Grammy-nominated musician and producer is turning his eyes to the future, when clubs reopen and pure rave energy can overtake a crowd of writhing bodies yet again. Most of his third album, DREAMLAND 2021, was made at home during quarantine, but as he crafted the new set’s grimy techno and sweaty house tracks, he imagined the record as the score to a world starting to spin back into motion—even if, for now, that feels out of reach. Over the years, ZHU has won acclaim for exactly these kinds of forward-looking experiments, including a Best Dance Recording nomination at the 2014 Grammys for his breakout hit “Faded.” His debut album GENERATIONWHY topped Billboard’s Dance/Electronic albums chart and landed on the Billboard 200, and he’s had dozens of tracks hit the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. These accolades have earned him partnerships with like-minded brands including Luminosity and Leica. And ZHU continued his productive streak in 2020 with a busy run of singles—including “Only” with Tinashe, “Desire” with Bob Moses, and the Kito and Jeremih collab “Follow”—and a string of live-streams for Digital Mirage, Insomniac, and Lollapalooza. But all of this success has never been the point—ZHU just wanted to head to the dancefloor and dream up better worlds. DREAMLAND 2021 basks in that impulse. He imagines everyone united under one roof raving—a party with enough energy to take over the whole world.
The Banksia name drives a defined polished finesse. Born in Manchester, raised in Zambia and now residing in the heart of the true electronic hub of San Francisco, this DJ and producer has found his core.
Undefined by genres, and more about the energy of each piece of music and art, the Banksia name drives a defined polished finesse. Born in Manchester, raised in Zambia, and now residing in the heart of the true electronic hub of San Francisco, this DJ, and producer has found his core. Delivering an artistic journey from the studio to the stage, he embraces the underground hue, from start to finish, having embraced music in a new light following the passing of his father. This is where the ominous musical output of Banksia began.
Promising he can work a dance floor, Vasu the name behind the profile relishes a well-rounded career in music, especially electronic. From music production studies in Sydney, Australia to the consoles in his home of California, Vasu accelerates his musical stance through the power of music, engulfing himself in the creative process as a producer. His recent remix of Australia duo Lastlings’ ‘Last Breath’ reigned a promise from his studio, released on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Rose Avenue Records.
He has lit up dance floors and ridden the musical journey with house and techno devotees across the weekends. Supporting the likes of Black Coffee, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Fisher, Anna Lunoe, Chris Lake, Patrice Baumel, and ZHU at two Blacklizt parties in his home city, Vasu is building a memorable soundtrack aligning with his path. With an anticipated EP release, the Banksia sound is sure-fire dynamic, bright, and rave ready.
