There has been a lot of hype around Henry Wu, first spotted on Hotep, and finally landing feet first on the highly regarded Rhythm Section label, run from the depths of Peckham.

Made up of 6 cuts of jazz infused rhythms, laced with glassy keys and featuring the electric bass talents of Tom Driessler on the standout track ’Dubplate Special’. These tracks are immediately comparable to the likes of Moodyman, Floating Points and of course, Theo… While US comparisons are all well and good the real highlights are ‘Croydon Depot’ and ‘Neezy’ which see Wu take to the mic and overlay spoken word snippets and observations – shifting this ep into a UK context.

An accomplished musician, the ‘Good Morning Peckham’ is a multi layered exploration of the MPC, complex structures that reward repeated listening, beautiful melodies unfold and stretch into the distance, sounding effortless, a real talent, no doubt honed by years of touring as a session musician – Henry Wu is the real deal – no doubt about it.
