Following a strong debut earlier in 2022, ZHANGYE is back with his next release. Titled ‘Wherever  The Wind Blows’ this time, he has drafted in the sublime talents of American singer and  songwriter KARRA, known for her work with big acts with Le Youth, NERVO and Armin van  Buuren

KARRA’s partnership with ZHANGYE on ‘Wherever The Wind Blows’ is the fusion of two gifted  artists with a deep footing in music theory and creativity. This combination elevates a song that could  be perceived as a soothing Ballard into an exhilarating electronic track. From a melodically subtle intro,  the track opens with placid guitar strums before KARRA’s vocal takes  position. ZHANGYE’s production cleverly infuses a country feel before tumbling into a compressed  electro melodic, wrapped around a slaphouse kick. The combination of which elevates ‘Wherever The  Wind Blows’ into an addictive house player that brims with mainstage appeal for summer festival  goers. 

Previously earning support from the likes of Quintino and former world No.1 DJ Dimitri  Vegas, ZHANGYE is beginning to make strides as emerging talent from the Chinese scene. His debut  EP, ‘When I Was Young’, managed to take the No.1 position on the Chinese iTunes electronic  chart, as well as a brief stint at #1 on the US iTunes EDM chart and Top 3 on the QQ Music  Electronic Chart for three consecutive weeks (QQ Music is the biggest DSP in China.) ‘When I Was  Young’ also went Gold on NetEase CloudMusic, the second largest Chinese DSP. 

Alongside his music career, ZHANGYE’s life is a multi-faceted existence as he is also known as the  founder of Cyanhill Capital, a leading venture capital firm in China focusing on early-stage consumer  investments. Peers recognize ZHANGYE and Cyanhill in the industry for their superior track record  and their solitary focus on the concept of aesthetics. As a result, he and Cyanhill have received  numerous honours. They have been named ‘Best Early-Stage Investors in China’ and ‘Best  Early-Stage Investment Institution in China’ by mainstream institutions for consecutive years. 

KARRA, real name Kara Jillian Madden, has become one of the dance scene’s most sought-after  singer/songwriters in recent years. Since debuting on Monstercat, the American vocalist has worked  with a slew of well-known names, including Jauz, GHASTLEY, Firebeatz, Sam Feldt, and KSHMR

ZHANGYE Wherever The Wind Blows’ (Feat. KARRA) is out on August 12th.
