ZHU – Paradise Awaits from ZHU on Vimeo.

Already making serious waves on the scene for his incredible rendition of the Outkast classic “Ms. Jackson” (ZHU aptly retitled his “Moves Like Ms. Jackson”) news about his first perfomance in NYC has been bubbling. The producer, vocalist, musician, high-fashion aficionado, visual artist, et al just dropped this wonderfully crafted video by Tomek Ducki ( Ducki is an incredibly talented animator, racking up a plethora of awards since 2007. The animator/film producer is originally from Budapest and now resides in Krakow, Poland. His style is very 2 dimensional in nature but his color choice and elaborate use of movement allows for his stories to become multi dimensional.

If this video is any sign of what is to come for ZHU’s highly anticipated “The NightDay Performance” one can only hold their breath with anticipation, and wait for paradise.

degrade Presents: Color Series: 001 – Wilks


LA is a wonderful melting pot for creatives and entrepreneurs looking to experiment with new ideas and concepts; a large population of them are currently broadening their scopes at “La Playa”. In the past 4-5 years a new batch of audiophiles, music aficionados, producers, visual artists and more have begun establishing a strong independent scene on the west coast. Los Angeles, in particular, has an amazing network of record labels, event companies, and boutique lifestyle brands with similar underlining goals; make music, throw parties, and most importantly, have a blast doing it. While operating as independent entities, a majority of these groups cross over and seem to go out of their way to help one another progress and build their respective followings. Case in point with degrade.

I first came across this crew after a good friend invited me to their private Facebook group. As pretentious as that may sound, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that its members were genuinely interested in sharing their individual music interests and that a lot of their tastes were auspiciously inline with mine. Furthermore, a lot of their members would often post exclusive upcoming events; sometimes happening on the same night as their own. It was this unselfish attitude that solidified my affinity for degrade. Their website speaks volumes to their eclectic selection of sounds and a color/vibe based archiving system caters to those of us that believe mainstream genre labels are insufficient in communicating how we really “feel” about the music we listen to.

To kick of the next stage in their evolution they have embarked on a monthly mix series that features one of their founding members and a rising talent in LA’s scene, Wilks (Prep School Recordings). The mix features a few of his own original sounds as well as a trademark collection of break-beating, ass-shaking, grooves guaranteed to put you in a hell of a good mood. So sit back, and enjoy “degrade.LA : 001 – Wilks [.blue]“.

*Full tracklist at the end of the post ;)

A note from the degrade crew:
“degrade.LA is an electronic music collective and event company based out of Los Angeles. The business model and spirit of the company is based around their website, a music platform where songs are categorized by color and vibe which gives users the ability to select playlists based on mood.

This month they have launched their brand new Color Series, a robust and enlightening monthly mix curated by hand selected DJ’s that embody a vibe from the degrade.LA website. The first installment kicks things off with Los Angeles native deep house producer, Wilks representing the .blue category. The track list is comprised of high energy, hypnotic dance floor tunes that take listeners straight into the late night warehouse parties that feed the underground culture of LA.

Stay tuned for more Color Series releases every month, featuring an eclectic array of fresh music from both up-and-coming and well known DJs.”
