ERIC SHARP and ZHAO, “Monday Blues”
ZHAO, “Magic” (Kususa and Argento Dust remix)
Here’s a fine one-two punch post about two releases that feature the voice of L.A. singer/musician Zhao.
First up we have Zhao reteaming with producer Eric Sharp for some smooth house with “Monday Blues”. You’ll recall his distinct vocal in Eric’s 2016 immensely catchy deep house release “The Thirst”. Here the setting is easily reminiscent of Camelphat and Elderbrook’s huge “Cola”. Like “The Thirst”, “Monday Blues” is heavy on atmosphere and it’s a great track for DJ’s to lead into the wee hours. It also has terrific lyrics which will definitely help take away any Monday blahs.
Zhao’s single “Magic” has a number of remixes on release, and the best of them is the playful and imaginative one from South African producers Kususa and Argento Dust. It benefits from nicely layered harmonies, Zhao’s higher register, and creative synth work to take the song to a different level.
Both songs are true delights and well worth your attention.
