Henry Wu
Good Morning Peckham

Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section (FYI Chris, Mallard) drop another EP of jazzy house that you could take home to meet your mum. Their millionth release to contain a reference to Peckham comes courtesy of long-time friend of the label Henry Wu. He proves himself a deft and versatile arranger across the six tracks of Good Morning Peckham, balancing a knack for jazz harmony with instrumental choices that take in house, disco, two-step and more. ‘Croydon Depot’, which sounds like a collaboration between Tricky and Motor City Drum Ensemble, is particularly nice.

Wu Hen

Peckham’s Kamaal Williams returns with his second album, Wu Hen. Williams’ refers to his own music as Wu Funk - a mix of jazz, rap, R&B and funk underpinned by jungle, grime, garage and house beats. This time out he’s added an expansive widescreen feel with strings arranged by Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (Ray Charles, Dr. Dre, Flying Lotus, Mary J. Blige etc) and some sax from virtuoso player Quinn Mason.

New Heights / Snitches Brew

New EP from our big broken-beat jazz talent Kamaal Williams. After his success with Yussef Kamaal, producer Henry Wu delivers a follow-up to this year’s the Return. Snitches Brew boasts some genre-defying shredding from virtuoso Mansur Brown, whereas New Heights promises to be more of a spaced-out hiphop affair. Limited supply: buy now or face eternal regret.

The Return

Yussef Kamaal may have disbanded, but Henry Wu continues to fly the flag as Kamaal Williams. For the first LP released under his given name we see Williams behind the keys in a jazz fusion trio that brings together the visionary aesthetic of the YK output with the sounds of new London jazz and the shuffling grooves of the Wu project. Out via the new Black Focus records, a label named after YK’s sole full-length.
