Australian artist ZUSO drops “Hold Me”

Posted by on October 19, 2023

ZUSO is a project from Australian producer Gabriel Cuenca, who is crafting an invigorating atmospheric-house sound that can be likened to a mix between Rufus Du Sol, Lane 8 and Flume. Today he is back with his latest offering with new single “Hold Me”, which is being released via indie imprint LOVE CLVB and it’s a mellow vibe. Soothing atmospherics and escapism are two reoccurring themes found in most of ZUSO’s music and it’s the perfect vibe for a rainy day. Tune in above now!

“I wrote the beat quite quickly and then I found the vocal sample in this sample-pack that I remembered using ages ago for one of the first ever demos I made. It just had such a nice chilled and gentle vibe which I really loved. I wanted the song to give off this wholesome calming energy and the ‘Hold Me’ vocal fits that tone perfectly. It definitely has the escapism feel to it as well, which is a common theme I base a lot of my music off. I then added some nice emotionally driven chords and pads along with a nice guitar riff just to add to that feeling, and yea hopefully it’s something you can all relate to and enjoy.” ~ ZUSO
