Henry Wu grabbed our attention in February with one of our standout tracks of the year so far in ‘Natural Complexion‘. The South London producer combines soulful beats, live vocals and worldly influences that have come to characterise the 22a family he is also apart of. If you haven’t been keeping tabs on recent movements like we have, the sensational ‘Badulude‘ is well worth checking out as well. It’s been nice to see Henry become a regular fixture on lineups in London as this year’s progressed, and before he takes to the skies for Boxfresh’s High Rise series next month, we asked him to pick out ten tracks he’s feeling at the moment.
Henry Wu plays High Rise at Rockwell House with Waze & Odyssey and Pedestrian. It’ll be one of three rooftop parties in East London on 6th September, which are part of the Boxfresh 25th anniversary celebrations this year.
