    Wu has elevated this genre and he excels at the DJ-set LP format. His ability to place artists that inspired him coming up into a more modern context is powerful. It celebrates the work and at the same time moves the rest of us to dig deeper into the history of this incredible music.

    The mix superbly demonstrates how the contemporary jazz scene and club culture have cross-pollinated and influenced each other.

    It's a mix that captures the zeitgeist appetite for the melding of jazz, R&B and electronic sounds while also celebrating the path that led there. [Jan 2020, p.31]
