Astro Zu is a new London-based producer who specializes in the kind of downtempo soundscapes that demonstrate a heavy Flying Lotus influence. His music is a little bit looser than that of the Brainfeeder don though, and the producer's new track, "Ma Body Sayin'," combines a naggingly familiar '90s R&B vocal hook with a bed of tropical percussion. Astro Zu's resulting production makes for a tune with its fair share of whimsical beauty. - XLR8R

Nouvelle recrue de l’excellent label Bad Life, Astro Zu est l’un des plus téméraires astronautes anglais, un type qui a déjà visité plusieurs galaxies, qui possède la carte du Cosmos et fait parfois la sieste sur la Mer de la Tranquillité, sur la face lumineuse de la Lune. Il connait par cœur les vents, les dangers et le silence du grand vide : la moindre des choses à réclamer à un fils d’astrologue. Par contre, Astro Zu n’a jamais quitté le plancher des vaches : tout se passe dans sa tête, où c’est le big bang jour et nuit, un bordel en expension qui repousse sans répit les frontières de l’électronica, du psychédélisme et du R&B. Il s’appelle Astro Zu, mais ne dit pas comment s’appelle son vaisseau spacial : Flying Lotus aurait été très approprié, mais c’est déjà pris. - Les Inrockuptibles (France)

There's something primitive about Astro Zu's debut cut. Son of an astrologist and yoga-teacher, the London newcomer, who goes by the name of "Ronnie", takes naval-gazing to extremes here. Laced with a Doldrums-like harsh quality, he throws in spoken word samples, scattered amongst the chaos. It's far out, maaaan, but it's also mighty exciting - Fake DIY

London-based artist Ronnie claims that the sounds of Astro Zu are influenced by his love of Flying Lotus, 60s psychedelia and 90s R&B. There’s clearly a bit of all of that, but what’s missing is a comparison to the trip-hop stylings of Thievery Corporation.

On “Zillion Dollar Uh,” Astro Zu takes the listener to a trippy and futuristic place, channeling visions of far off planets and solar systems in a distant galaxy. It’s lounge and future bass all at once — an unlikely combination that ends up working quite marvelously together. - Indie Shuffle

Bad-Life Records has just signed Londond based artist Astro Zu to their roster of progressive beat makers. Easily classified as ELM or downtempo, his influences draw from Flying Lotus, 60s psych-rock and 90s r&b.

The first two tracks released are “Zillion Dollar Uh” and “Space Wizard”; the former being a raw, murky drum track, while the later is more of a soulful, harmonic production. Both are streaming below and give a solid indication of Astro Zu’s skill-set to come. - Magnetic Magazine

Bio

Astro Zu is Ronnie who lives in London. His unlikely story starts in the 1980’s at a commune in Staffordshire, where he was raised son to an astrologist Father and new-age yoga-teaching Mum. His childhood was defined by fantasy. With few friends to speak of, Ronnie would retreat into his imagination and conjure up a magical vision of another cosmic world far beyond the realm of this universe. There he would live for hours on end as the master of his domain: ‘Astro Zu’.

As he grew up, the phase passed. Following his parent’s divorce he relocated to east London and soon found himself a new obsession: making music. Astro Zu sees Ronnie returning to his imaginary cosmos, this time to provide the soundtrack. It’s a project born from his love of Flying Lotus, 60's psychedelia and 90's RnB, once again bringing to life the often weird and fantastical world of his childhood.
