Holy. Fucking. Shit. How have I not heard of Zuma. until just now?! Pardon my language, but I can count on one hand how many tracks I've heard this year where the production honestly blew me away. On that hand, you would find Opia, Whethan, AWAY, and now Zuma. (The 5th finger is a serious battle between a ton of other producers).
On "Haste", the young San Diego-based producer crafts a sonic landscape akin to how Lang Lang tickles the ivories — in a way no one else knows how. The virtuosic sound design and audio engineering aptitude are reminiscent of artists such as Tennyson, Shlomo, and mura masa. The mood fluctuates from sensual to anxious to relaxing. Nsolo delivers a solid R&B vocal somewhat reminiscent of Miguel or The Weeknd, tying the track together nicely. But the production is what really steals the show on this one. If he keeps up the pace and delivers us more gems like this one, I wouldn't be shocked to see Zuma. on some major festival lineups next year.
