Boomkat Product Review:
Extended player tactics from young Wu on this smart turn out for Alex Nut’s Eglo replete with remix from tidy Kaidi Tatham.
After wowing the broadsheet massive with last year’s Yusseff Kamaal LP on Brownswood, Kamaal Williams returns to his Henry Wu project on this naughty little number for Eglo.
UK Funky soldiers will be delighted to hear OG Warrior Hard House Banton repping on the tasty title cut and the twisted Century, drawing a line between bruk swerves and UKF we all knew was there. Elsewhere, Kamaal’s latent talent for jazz is displayed with almost CR7-levels of showboating on Boards and Skins, complemented by the more unassuming vignette, Reflections, that closes out the record.
Wait, we didn’t mention the don Kaidi Tatham dipping into the H Wu archives to remix his 2015 cut, Just Negotiate, elevating the Simeon Jones-featuring number to the upper echelons of soul-dipped broken beat.
