Premiere: Sean Khan – Samba Para Florence (Henry Wu Remix)

It is certainly no secret that for the last 20 years London-based label Far Out Recordings has become a dominant presence in pushing movement-defining releases from legendary latin artists. Browsing through their discography read’s like a who’s who of Brazilian artistry; from Marcos Valle through to Azymuth and Milton Nascimento. But take a closer look and you’ll soon uncover that their output is by no means restricted to traditional jazz and latin grooves, instead they have commissioned remixes from some of the most respected electronic artists across the globe, from Theo Parrish to our recent DJ Andrés premiere.

So it comes as no surprise that ahead of London based jazz impresario Sean Khan‘s second album Muriel later this year, Far Out have recruited two of London’s finest producers for a special remix 12″ dropping early next month. Henry Wu and Ben Hauke are known for their jazz-influenced beat making, and it seems to be a perfect fit to let them run wild on two of Khan’s shining tracks and bridge that gap between the worlds of hip-hop, house and jazz.

Today we’re premiering Henry Wu’s edit, imbuing the original track with a distinctly organic and off-kilter groove. The 22a associate’s loose and earthy quality makes for a perfect compliment to Khan’s delicious melting pot of jazz, soul and broken beat flavours. Sturdy yet swinging with strong jazzy synth stabs and topped with a child-like, wordless, sing-along vocal.

Sean Khan – Samba Para Florence/ Things To Say (Henry Wu & Ben Hauke Remixes) is available to buy now from the Bandcamp, out on limited edition 12″ on July 13th.
