Zhu has torn Mathame’s single ‘Never Give Up’ a new one with a fantastically brooding remix that we’d classify as a 10/10 banger.
ZHU‘s rework is the fifth official remix for the track, following the previously released remixes from a superstar line up of artists including Vril, Lost Frequencies, Diplo and Adriatique. On the original song, Mathame are quoted saying;
“Musically, ‘Never Give Up’ has many influences, from techno to cinematic soundtracks and sound design. We try to synthesise all our influences into one track that can be like a manifesto of our sound, dynamic, wider, handcrafted, dreaming, with a simple and strong message.”
The ZHU remix definitely adds a bit more consistent bite and intensity to the track. A more four-to-the-floor club vibe verses the structure of the original that’s designed to be more dramatic with more minimal breakdowns.
It appears that ZHU may have had to change his plans to release an album this year with the pandemic. But who knows as we’ve not heard any updates. It still may happen!
He also put a recent collaboration out with Bob Moses that will make you cut some shapes also!
