The innovative UK garage producer Wookie is bringing his a-game to our shores for the very first time.
Heavily influenced by his reggae producer father, Jason Chue began his career as a producer with reggae star Wayne Marshall in ‘91. Jason first developed his Wookie sound remixing tracks for Destiny’s Child, Public Enemy and Nas. Later taking centre stage at the forefront of the emerging UK Garage Scene he went on to achieve international success with his Number 9 hit in the UK Charts “Battle”. His debut album “Wookie” was released in 2000 and was hailed as a “soul masterpiece in a modern style” and the “first truly essential and definitive UK Garage album”. His fresh, progressive and distinctive sound won him critical acclaim worldwide.
Intent on creating a new sound, Jason has been quiet over the past few years, but is now ready to step back into the forefront.
