South London’s Wu-Lu is refreshingly straddling two disparate worlds of music. After two years spent experimenting with the off-kilter brilliance of J Dilla's hip hop with ounces of lo-fi, psychedelic guitar to great effect, the multi-hyphenate artist is now comfortable in his own lane.
Music runs in his veins. Raised in a creative environment built by a professional contemporary dancing mother and afro-jazz trumpeter, his run-ins with music were early and frequent. His 2015 debut mixtape, GINGA — featuring Stones Throw’s Mndsgn and Andrew Ashong — was a refreshing narration of the mixed race experience in London.
The multi-instrumentalist's highly-approved N.A.I.S. EP followed in a similar vein of cross-genre brilliance as showcased on his impressive entry for FACT Magazine's infamous Against The Clock series. His most recent release, the S.U.F.O.S. (Save Us From Ourselves) EP, saw Wu-Lu collaborate with long-term friends, Binisa Bonner, Kwake Bass, Nubya Garcia, Eun, Demae Wodu, and Morgan Simpson (black midi's drummer).
