Last weekend at Coachella, Zhu put on a set that has been widely acclaimed by festival attendees and streamers alike. Amongst a flurry of lasers and lights, the man dropped a sexy smooth new remix of Faithless’ ‘Insomnia’ that clearly put the Coachella crowd into a jaw-dropping trance. Although the original has gone through numerous iterations, Zhu’s take on the track is one that is unique and gives this classic a touch of 2016. Starting off with the iconic synths of the original song, right on the drop Zhu unveils his edits to the track which include solid vocal edits, new rolling high hats, and driving horns that are all smoothly wrapped together by an elegant sax piece that closes the preview off.
Although Zhu hasn’t publicly acknowledged that this remix is his own, his team has confirmed that this epic remix does come from the musical mastermind. He also ended his Coachella set with the date July 29th, 2016 which could be a clue to when this track comes out. Check out the clip of the remix below and enjoy this epic remix.
