After a string of well received releases on the likes of 22a and Alexander Nut’s Hotep, Henry Wu steps forth with his most bold statement to date with ‘Good Morning Peckham’ on the Rhythm Section International Imprint.
Arguably one of the most hotly-tipped producers in the UK right now, Wu’s broken compositions and deep jazzy keys have earned him plaudits from scene veterans as well as peers, all keen to see what Henry will do next.
With a refreshing take on rhythm and a virtuosic musicality born out of years of recording and touring as a session player, Henry Wu represents a brightly shining light in the already glowing London community.
Equally adept on the keyboard as he is on the MPC, on Good Morning Peckham, we are also given a further insight into the mind of Wu as he takes to the mic - toasting along to the soon-to-be-classic ‘ Croydon Depot’ and spitting on the intro to the broken beat inspired ‘Neezy’.
A South East Londoner born and bred, Henry’s debut on Rhythm Section has been a long time coming and it seems that it was worth the wait as Henry presents 6 tracks of white hot intention.
Henry Wu is a name that we’re going to hear a lot more of in the future….
Good morning Peckham!
