Los Angeles Tourism Invites Visitors to #StartYourComeback, Partners with Cercle for a Livestream Set Featuring Bob Moses from the Iconic Griffith Observatory

The “magic hour” timed show happens March 22 and will be available worldwide on Facebook Live and Twitch

Los Angeles is starting its comeback, having moved to the state’s less restrictive red tier which allows the safe reopening of museums, indoor dining, theme parks, and outdoor live events including spectator sports, with appropriate capacity controls and safety protocols. Now, the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board is inspiring lovers of L.A. to start their comeback, whenever they are ready, in a new partnership certain to stir wanderlust. To keep Los Angeles top of mind with visitors sonically and visually, Los Angeles Tourism has partnered with Cercle, known for their jaw-dropping musical live streams from UNESCO World Heritage sites and other cultural icons across the globe. L.A.-based, Grammy-winning electronic duo Bob Moses will perform a live stream, sunset set from the iconic Griffith Observatory on Monday, March 22, beginning at 6:00 p.m. PST. While there will be no audience present, the show is viewable on screens worldwide via Cercle’s Facebook LiveTwitch, and Oculus.

The collaboration kicks off Los Angeles Tourism’s new multi-month, phased effort to inspire visitors to #StartYourComeback. To help plan a future vacation, Los Angeles Tourism has aggregated more than 100 special offers from hotels, restaurants and more, available here.

“Through our partnership with Cercle, we’re inviting people to come back to a sense of wonder, to come back to a spirit of possibility. We have the opportunity to inspire with a dazzling magic hour, our iconic Griffith Observatory and the twinkling lights of the city’s skyline, all the while reminding visitors that L.A. is starting its comeback and we look forward to welcoming them back to L.A. when they are ready,” said Don Skeoch, Los Angeles Tourism’s Chief Marketing Officer.

“We call Los Angeles home, and we’re honored to bring L.A. to the world through this partnership with Cercle, which allows us to perform at the iconic Griffith Observatory during sunset. We’re ready for a magical show,” stated Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance of Bob Moses.

Derek Barbolla, Founder and CEO of Cercle added, “We’ve dreamt of hosting a show in Los Angeles at the Griffith Observatory for years now, and it’s incredibly special that this will soon become a reality. We know our fans will love seeing L.A. through our lens and will want to get back to L.A. – or discover it for the first time – after the show. We’re happy to safely bring a taste of the city to Cercle fans around the world.”

ZHU – Risky Business

Today, Astralwerks released ZHU’s new single, Risky Business. At once ominous and mesmerizing, the track unfolds by turns languid and propulsive but always with an underlying tension. ZHUߣs hushed vocals lure the listener to “risk it all” and enter into the dark, enticing world of the unknown. Download / stream Risky Business HERE.

Filmed in Los Angeles, the official video appears to be a piece of jumpy surveillance footage from an experiment known as Project 20201. The camera captures the provocative activities of a series of unknown subjects who frequent a bedroom. After a fade to black and a flip to black and white film, the surveillance continues. The subjects are gone and a team of fixers, clad in hazmat suits, descend on the location to remove any evidence of what transpired. Watch for ZHU’s appearance in the final frames, his role as mysterious as Project 20201 itself. ZHU directed the official video alongside Joey Vitalari. Kristin Schaefer produced. View Risky Business HERE.

To accompany the release of Risky Business, ZHU has launched new merchandise collection, inspired by the video. Offerings include an unreleased content hard drive, a hazmat suit, an evidence bag, safety glasses, a duffle bag and a variety of attire, including an orange faux fur coat. All items are available by chance in mystery bags. Browse the collection, which will be available for a limited time, HERE.

Last night, ZHU premiered Risky Business during the second installment of CLUB ZHUM, a livestream from the risky epicenter of the world of the Zhudio. During his set, he incorporated some of the Risky Business merchandise. Earlier in the week, he celebrated the second anniversary of the release of Ringos Desert with the release of limited-edition vinyl and associated merchandise in his store.

The artwork for the single features a series of stills from the video, shot by Joey Vitalari. Risky Business follows ZHU’s recent collaborations with Kito (Follow ft. Jeremih), Tinashe (ONLY), partywithray (CAME FOR THE LOW) and Bob Moses (Desire). EDM.com said, “ZHU has continuously impressed throughout 2020”; and noted, “catchy club anthem (Follow) is set to fill playlists around the globe with its snappy percussion, striking piano chords, and flawless vocal contribution from Jeremih.” Praising the dance floor burner, YourEDM said, “We couldn’t dream up a better collaborative trio.” ZHU’s recent performances have included Inside Lands, the virtual festival presented by Outside Lands, and Virtual Lollapalooza 2020. ZHU has also recently launched partnerships with Luminosity Gaming and Leica.
