Yesterday afternoon, the official HARD Facebook page went to the public with a mysteriously odd, yet exciting announcement for electronic music fans worldwide. Counting down the days until their annual Day of the Dead festival in November, the high-profile event company posted a picture with a single white paint stripe at the top right corner (shown above). The iconic image struck a chord in many, resembling the evocative trademark from none other than ZHU, and hinting at a possibly live performance from him at this year's show.
Undoubtedly listed as one of 2014's hottest breakthrough artists, ZHU's rise onto the radar has been no secret. With his most popular record "Faded" going double-platinum in Australia, and countless chartings on The Hype Machine, a debut performance from him was long overdue. As of now, nothing's been set in stone yet, but we have high hopes for this talented phenomenon, and hopefully we'll get something good out of it.
Then again, he could be pulling a Daft Punk on us. For now, check out some footage of ZHU performing "Faded" at the at Australia's Listen Out festival:
