Steven Zhu, (born 1989) better known by his stage name ZHU (/dʒuː/or /tʃuː/), is an electronic music producer and singer who has been active since the beginning of 2014, signed to Mind of a Genius Records. Until mid-2014 Zhu remained anonymous, asking to be judged by his music alone.
His first track, "Moves Like Ms Jackson", a mashup of several songs by Outkast, was released in February 2014 and was positively received by blogs and reviewers covering electronic music. Other tracks appeared on the music streaming site Soundcloud throughout February and March, followed by an EP titled The Nightday in April 2014. The first single from the EP, titled "Faded", was released in March 2014.
As "Faded" was nominated for a Grammy, Zhu opened up about himself slightly in an interview. He stated that "the project (Zhu) is all about art, and we try to make it about the songs and the response." On 15 May 2015, Zhu appeared on Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 'After Hours' show and contributed a 40 minute DJ mix, mostly consisting of unreleased remixes, and also announced the NIGHTDAY COLLECTION clothing line.
