Shash’U “Thru Da Night” Video
Posted on Nov 5th, 2014 in Videos by Mr. Goldbar
Afrofuturist b-boy, remix alchemist, legit funk phenomenon… Montreal hero 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 from Beyonce and Robin Thicke into breakbeat battle weapons. This approach has won Shash’U a rabid following (not to mention officially commissioned remixes for A-Trak’s “Push” and Chromeo’s “Lost On The Way Home”) and set the stage for his official Fool’s Gold debut, PWRFNK, due out next year.
Before then, however, Shash’U will drop the free Thru Da Night EP, led by the muscular title track (which made it’s debut on the Fool’s Gold Draft Picks BitTorrent bundle) and accompanying music video, featuring a night-crawling preacher man with his own approach to keeping the faith. Check Shash’U live at the Fool’s Gold 7 Year Anniversary Party this Thursday (11/6) at Webster Hall in NYC alongside Master P and more, and at the Miami edition of Fool’s Gold DAY OFF during Art Basel on Saturday, 12/7 featuring A-Trak, Danny Brown, DJ Mustard and the rest of the FG fam.
