“New Recruit”. 2 The British Electronic band Gorillaz, has a new member to their list. Originated from Essex, Gorillaz are well known for their unique style of electronic/hip hop music, which judging from their sales, people enjoy, extremely. The new recruit, Zain, seemed to impress both band leaders Damon Albarn and British cartoonist Jamie Hewlett at the Gorillaz Auditions held in London, last week. Good news for him, he’ll be signing a 5 year contract with the electronic giants.

Zain (Seen above) seems chuffed with his achievement, and rightly so. He aced passed his other 25 contestants in a sing off. Albarn and Hewlett clearly saw ‘his talent’, and wasted no time in hiring him. Zain’s family and friends back home in Birmingham are anxiously waiting his arrival. He returns this Saturday to his home town. What does he get? Well, a contract with Gorillaz and he’s now working on his first track, due to release soon.
