ZHU, Gallant "Testarossa Music" Shared From 'Genesis Series'
Los Angeles-based mystery producer ZHU has unveiled the third song from his Genesis Series. The new single "Testarossa Music" features the vocals of fellow Mind Of A Genius signee Gallant, while ZHU provides falsettos of his own.
"Testarossa Music" was first premiered by ZHU back in May during his BBC Radio One afterhours mix for Pete Tong. The track is grounded on a funky bass line, over some jazzy keys, reverbed guitars and spacey synth chords that mesh with the soulful voice of Gallant and ZHU's high pitched falsetto. Their voices blend together effortlessly as one transitions into the other on verses and in the chorus.
"Testarossa Music" had the same type of roll out as the two previous singles with a short animated video clip sent to people's phones with a radio premiere a few days later.
This is the third single to emerge from the Genesis Series. It was first kicked off by "Automatic" with AlunaGeorge, which alerted the world as to what ZHU had been up to over the past year. Last week he unveiled the reggae, house and hip-hop fusing track "As Crazy As It Is" with A-Trak and Keznamdi.
The Genesis Series will feature an interesting mix of artists from all genres. In addition to the already mentioned features, like AlunaGeorge and A-Trak, it will also host artists like Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Skrillex, Vancouver Sleep Clinic and Daniel Johns.

With three singles already released, it begs the question of what ZHU's end game is here. Is an album on the way, or is just going to be a series of singles?
