influenced by the french concept of “water” (eau), zeauk’s artist name reflects the music he makes; mutable and sublime, sustaining and destructive.
the merge between that and his given name, it expresses the battle between what is perceived and its reality; one's intimate self and identity. he combines contemporary R&B with melancholic tunes to convey his vision of musical intimacy.
zeauk, aka zeus rectra is a kuala lumpur based content creator. after a sleepover turned music session in early 2018, him and his friends zekke and Chinychon wrote RMB (read my bible), which they released on spotify, satirically, later on. they did not anticipate the number of streams it would receive, motivating them to release more tracks under their names.
this lead to the release of his debut single, for the heartbroken featuring zekke, months later, drawing from personal experiences and inspired by the likes of Russ, Joji and gnash, spread over gloomy nocturnal sonics. after joining a kuala lumpur based independent record label, LS Music Entertainment, in mid-2018, he released two singles, burnt polaroids and what if.
he is set to release a debut ep, ‘prologue.’, in august 2019, featuring some creative artists. zeauk has built an online following through his photography and blog since 2013, way before he ventured into the music industry. he just released an experimental single, obscuredfrequencies featuring silver lim, giving his audience a taste of what's coming this august.
