Filled with sweat-dripping angst, Zebra’s latest track has been produced by himself, Br83the, and Torus, continuing to exemplify his genre-blending prowess through a Miami bass-infused dancefloor shaker. He whispers softly over the beat, “I said baby, you should come over here and thump,” contrasting the hard-hitting backdrop with his uncanny delivery.
Speaking to The FADER about the track, he shares that “‘UPP’ is a re-imagined, extended, and finished version of one of the first tracks I wrote and produced on GarageBand.” He further noted that he chose “an up-close or ASMR inspired vocal that might feel as if someone was whispering (sweet nothings) into your ear inside a dark and crowded club.”
You can stream “UPP” below. Zebra Katz debut album, LESS IS MOOR, arrives on March 20 via ZFK Records.
