Ren Zukii Shows Off A Different Side With Virus Syndicate Via ‘Push Up Ya Lighter’

Posted by on May 3, 2024

Ren Zukii, known offstage as Rene Snow, is an artist who really knows how to keep her audience on their toes. From her hometown of Margaret River—a scenic surf spot in Western Australia—Ren’s passion for drum & bass kicked off at just 12 years old. Fast forward to today, and she’s not only a staple in the Australian bass music community but also the first female artist signed exclusively with WAKAAN.

Her recent achievements are pretty impressive. Ren just wrapped up the Touch Bass 2024 tour in Australia, where her performances grabbed everyone’s attention and left fans eager for more. She’s also been making the rounds in the media, featuring on George FM Drive with Sin & Brook in New Zealand and Triple J in Australia earlier in March.

“After being given the opportunity to work with Nik & Jay, I sent them this simple but catchy UKG idea and they sent back their vocal stems—a high energy rap that sounded like it came from an authentic place and it went with the beat so well, lyrically and musically.”

“We had so much fun working on this record with Ren. As soon as it hit the inbox we were both really inspired to write and It’s such a unique soundscape it really gave us lots of freedom to explore lyrically. The end result is something special. A record that will stand the test of time and transcend musical boundaries. We’re super excited for this one to drop on the mighty Wakaan and can’t wait for the fans to hear what we created together. Big shout to Ren every time! Huge talent!” – Virus Syndicate

Now, she’s released, “Push Up Ya Lighter,” a collaboration with the UK’s hip-hop duo Virus Syndicate. Out now under the WAKAAN label, this track brings a fresh twist to her style. It’s a fusion of UKG, breaks, and dark synth chords that creates a full-bodied, vocal-heavy rhythm perfect for breaking the tension in her live sets.

Studying music production at university, Ren developed a distinct style that has truly set her apart in the bass music scene. Her series of successful releases on Liquid Stranger’s label, WAKAAN, showcases her growth and adaptability as an artist. With every new track, Ren continues to redefine her sound, keeping her music fresh and her fans hooked.
