Astral People are proud to present UK Garage pioneer Wookie.
The renowned producer and remixer is widely regarded as one of the most influential
founding fathers of UK Garage. He began his musical career releasing classics such as“Scrappy”, “Down On Me” and “Storm” through his own label ManChu Recordings. After signing to the production collective Soul II Soul, Wookie released his seminal self-titled album.
After a mini hiatus from the music industry, Wookie returned to the scene with his remix of Jessie J’s “Who You Are” and went straight on to remix BobbyWomack, Usher and Rizzle Kicks. He has earned award nominations and the calibre of artists he has remixed speaks for itself.
The return of Wookie has brought forward new talents from Jason, DJ-ing for the first time in
his career including regular gigs at London’s Fabric, Berlin’s Berghain, Manchester’sWarehouse Project, Horizon Festival, Outlook Festival, Secret Garden Party, Latitude Festival
and his first full Australian/NZ tour. It’s fair to say Wookie is firmly back in the groove.
