Afrofuturist B-Boy, remix alchemist, legit funk phenomenon… Montreal’s Shash’U is truly one of a kind. He’s been burning down stages from Boiler Room to underground street dance competition “Juste Debout” with a mix of wild style remixes and audacious originals that sound at once alien and familiar, turning even the poppiest of radio hits into breakbeat battle weapons. This approach has won Shash’U a rabid following and set the stage for his debut original releases on Fool’s Gold. The moody Thru Da Night EP (available now for free download at foolsgoldrecs.com/shashu) melds cinematic synth lines with next level drum programming that drives EDM straight through Erotic City. Yet it’s only a teaser of the bass craziness Shash’U has in store on PWRFNK, his electro opus dropping 3/31. Both EPs will be collected on a limited-edition colored vinyl release featuring sleeve art by acclaimed comic book illustrator Ron Wimberly.
