South London's Wu-Lu has shared his new song 'Seven' - tune in now.
The allusive figure of Wu-Lu perhaps sums up the 'Wot Do U Call It?' phase London's music scene finds itself in right now.
Jazz but not 'jazz', hip-hop but not 'hip-hop', his music accepts elements from all corners, while continually providing something new.
Incoming EP 'S.U.F.O.S.' drops on April 26th, perhaps the clearest indication yet of the holy brew Wu-Lu has been distilling at his studio.
He commented recently: "The EP is about family in every sense of the word: blood family, spiritual family, extended family, your family. It's the perception of my own experience and the young people who haven't got a loud enough voice yet".
New song 'Seven' has a dank touch, it's murky atmosphere disrupted by intense bursts of light.
The jagged electronics and bursting bass line are matched by a half-spoken vocal, one that meditates on loss.
Wu-Lu explains: "This song touches on thoughts and feelings that a lot of people have about their close ones. Even though most are from different walks of life. Seven is an in-depth look into caring about someone so much but not being able to help them the way you want to."
Tune in now.
Catch Wu-Lu at Brixton Windmill, London on April 25th.
