While day dreaming of warmer climates and playing the now iconic video game GTA Vice City. Whose soundtrack highlights music from the 80’s, His passion for Synthwave was sparked.
“All I wanted to do was get my hands on an synthesizer.”
At 16 he attended music school learning guitar, and trumpet and was also a member of the schools traveling classical chorus which toured Hungary.
“I started composing songs acoustically and arranging them to Hungarian poems that I learned in school.”
In 2010 he began performing these compositions locally at coffee shops, community centers and Hospitals.
Upon receiving access to a laptop he learned how to use Ableton Live software and his synth-dreams became a reality. “I started recording everything, sounds from the factory, the Danube just anything I heard.” He would incorporate these sounds with songs and poems, shaping a distinct sound of his own.”
Zu began to perform at various venues showcasing his influences and unmistakable sound. Culminating in the release of his first official song, KINETIC SUN.
