On his EPs Abstractions and Have Faith, Wu Wei established himself as and artists that likes the ethereal as music as he likes dance beats. 2014 has been a busy year for him performing at west coast festivals, street fairs and even holding it down along with an all-star lineup at Sacred Spaces camp at Burning Man.
On Syncretic, Wu Wei holds onto some of his ethereal and uplifting influences. His use of field recordings and found sound are also evident while at the same time displaying an ability to move into some newer directions of psychedelic dub as well as having tunes like Sun Soaked, Gift Of Loss and Icarus, seeming to reflect back to artists like Sabres of Paradise. This all culminates into some of the most delightful electronic chillout music we’ve heard.

Wu Wei, a name derived from the Taoist path of non-action, has tapped into a universal song and brought its melodies into the physical realm. The result is a uniquely unifying effect, transcending language and cultural identity to remind the rest of humanity of their fundamental unity. The 21-year-old Los Angeles to Humboldt County transplant has spent his recent years perfecting his attenuation to the rhythms of the natural world creating intentional music to bring the planet together. He strives to combine the soul reaching sounds of ambient IDM together with the earthy bass of futuristic world hip-hop
