Henry Wu  —  Good Morning Peckham
Sometimes, this EP for Rhythm Section echoes his recent turn on Ho Tep—the stoned monologue and cool chords of "Croydon Depot," in particular, recall Negotiate's "On The Regular." Elsewhere, though, Good Morning Peckham directs Wu's loose and lazy sensibility towards a newly streamlined house sound.
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’.
A South East Londoner born and bred, Henry’s debut on Rhythm Section was a long time coming and it seems that it was worth the wait. 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!
I’m still learning how to find that middle ground between doing what I want to do and not be so emotionally attached where I end up at the front of it.
