ONPLANETZU RELEASES A NEW TRACK TITLED "SKIPTOMYWU" New single debut from upcoming second album 'King of the Planet' Los Angeles, CA ( For Release: Sept 1, 2015) OnPlanetZu returns with a fresh sound for the summer with a new track titled "Skiptomywu". With the success of their first album 'Adventures of Yo Mama', which featured hit songs like "Speakers" and "Fire", the new single debuts off of their upcoming second album 'King of the Planet' and carries the same boldfaced intensity and originality the band is known for. Their new track is right on time for the summer and ready for continuous play in your speakers. OnPlanetZu certainly holds back no punches as "Skiptomywu" is audacious and delivers a nostalgic rhythmic flow of the 1980's era, touching on musical influences such as Public Enemy, KRSOne and the Wu Tang Clan. Their unconventional approach to making music has lead them to create great tunes that move their audience and keep the crowd captivated at every show.

It has just been confirmed that some OnPlanetZu minions will be hitting the streets as part of the new album, and we could not be happier. What does this mean? It means that Earthling ears will be hearing some new and possibly familiar personalities on some of our new tracks. Here on Planet Zu, we are always trying to break the boundaries of genre, traveling into the realm of the unpredictable. We hope you enjoy this mess of musical DNA we like to call OnPlanetZu.
Since y'all been wondering what's goin on and why is Zu here, then there, we gonna set the story straight. Your boi has been working on TWO albums. One for OnPlanetZu that is just a few sessions from being able to publish and one for Bazerk, which will contain massive new material and styles that you ain't heard from these guys before.
Will there be shows? Yes. Oh yes, there will be shows. We are currently working on solidifying a few dates and the summer performance list begins. So hang on, keep checkin in, and hit us up!
Our boi Douglas Garnett down at Skopemag took a listen to OnPlanetZu and decided he could sum us up in four words, "Skrillex Meets Busta Rhymes" Whoa, are we flattered? YES! He didn't leave it at that tho. Take a read of our first official press review. We would love to hear your feedback. Hit us up, kids, that's why we're OnPlanetZuuuu http://www.skopemag.com/2013/05/06/welcome-to-the-zu
That's right. Zu and Angelo Moore (Fishbone) are writing another song together, "Good Time" for an upcoming album. Since you never know what will manifest when these two get in the same room, we will withhold details until they are finished. Holla!!
