the peckham visionary's solo sophomore is a more confident outing than its predecessor; the jazz-funk freak-outs are more explosive than ever & the celestial refrains all the more luxurious.
Cinematic strings from Miguel-Atwood Ferguson and virtuoso saxophone from Quinn Mason are textural additions that make for a deeper, multi-layered experience than previous releases, evoking vintage david axelrod. Bringing groove back to the forefront, Wu Hen oscillates between celestial jazz, funk, rap and r&b reinforced with the rugged beat-heavy attitude of grime, jungle, house and garage – a self-styled fusion Kamaal describes as Wu Funk. “a musical melting pot where funk, rap, R&B and jazz converge into William’s unique space of ‘Wu Funk’ and it’s breathless yet ethereal in equal measure” album of the week - 8/10 – line of best fit.
