South London’s Wu-Lu is refreshingly straddling seemingly disparate worlds of music like no other. Having spent years experimenting with lo-fi, psychedelic guitar and off-kilter hip-hop, the multi-hyphenate has since been slowly nurturing a new sound, one that brazenly stands amongst the new gen of the underground punk/alternative hip-hop scene.

The highly-approved N.A.I.S. EP (2018) 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 second EP, Save Us From Ourselves (released on The Vinyl Factory in 2019), featured collaborations with long-term friend Binisa Bonner and Black Midi’s Morgan Simpson. Following on from such an innovative and well-received project, this master of experimental sounds continued to release acclaimed music through Warp in 2021-2022.

His musicianship has legendary status within the community. Alumnus of iconic institutions like The Windmill in Brixton, Wu-Lu is as important to London’s soundscape as the venues he plays in. His undisputed roots in the city’s scene are highlighted through affiliations with musical movement Touching Bass, Black Midi, Sorry and Show Me The Body to name a few.

It’s the live stage where the impact of Wu-Lu’s passionate retellings really come into their own. No matter where he plays, Wu-Lu continues to deliver his unique point of view through an ever-evolving and always refreshing sound.

Wu-Lu forener det uforenlige som ingen andre. Gjennom mange år med eksperimentering har hans lo-fi-fundamenterte uttrykk bestående av punk, psykedelisk gitar og sidelinje-hiphop krystallisert seg til et helt eget sound, som står i fremste rekke blant den nye generasjonen av hiphop-punks.

Wu-Lu er en del av det spennende miljøet rundt London-scenen The Windmill, kollektivet Touching Bass og Black Midi, og han fikk med seg musikere fra Sampha, Ezra Collective og MF DOOM på EPen N.A.I.S. fra 2018. 2019-EPen Save Us From Ourselves (utgitt av The Vinyl Factory) inneholdt bidrag fra Binisa Bonner og black midi-trommeslager Morgan Simpson. I 2021 signet han til Warp, gav ut årets låt-kandidaten “Broken Homes”, og fulgte opp med Blame i 2022.

Wu-Lu har vist gang på gang at det er på scenen at han virkelig kommer til sin rett, og etter å ha måttet avlyse i 2021 kan vi endelige melde at den norske konsertdebuten skjer på by:Larm 2022!
