MOBO nominated “Best Producer” and “Ericsson “Best Newcomer” Award Winner Wookie (real name Jason Chue) is arguably the most talented producer to emerge from the UK underground music scene to date. Producing for Wayne Marshall, Dynamite MC, Doom Man, Soul II Soul, as figurehead of the UK garage scene and with a ridiculous number of club classics under his belt including his number 9 hit “Battle” and his underground sensation “Scrappy”, his is a story coming back to where it all began – the very roots of dance music…

Wookie has reproduced tracks for the likes of Justin Timberlake, Omarion, Amp Fiddler, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lily Allen, Jill Scott, Raul Midon, John Legend, Gabrielle, MJ Cole, Masters at Work, Nitin Sawhney, Brandy, Roni Size, Soul II Soul, Craig David, Texas, Angie Stone, Faithless, Sia, Sisco, DJ Zinc, John B, MC Dynamite and many many more… His unique sound and the high calibre of his productions have earnt him huge respect throughout the industry and make him one of the most sought after producers of our time.

Wookie’s latest 12’’ “Live On” feat. Lain was released with Soul Heaven/Defected in Nov 2006. The next Wookie single is due for release in May ’07. “Do you Believe” feat. Xavier is the second release from Wookie’s own label Lovestar Music. “Do you believe” is a thought-provoking, uplifting song with all the warmth and atmosphere of classic soul combined with big house beats. This release marks Wookie’s return to the soul roots of dance music and his drive to get closer to what people are feeling on the floor has inspired him to DJ for the first time in his prolific career! 2007 will see Wookie launching regular Lovestar Music nights and delving deeper into the production of a second album.

A pioneer, respected DJ, an accomplished producer/remixer, label / A&R manager and radio presenter, Matt ‘Jam’ Lamont has been an intrinsic part of the UK garage scene from its very inception.

It was at South London’s The Arches, where the burgeoning underground UK garage sound, and indeed Matt’s career really took shape with his residency at the legendary Sunday venue.

It was at this seminal Sunday club that he hooked up with fellow DJ Karl ‘Tuff Enuff’ Brown, and together in 1993 they formed the now legendary production/remixing team, Tuff Jam. The duo became the leading figureheads of UK garage during the mid to late 90’s, turning out a slew of classic anthems from ‘Tumblin’ Down’ and entered the charts withTJR’s ‘Just Gets Better’ (Multiply) & Tuff Jam ft, Jaquee Bennett Need Good Love (XL) to top remixes for Kristine Blond, Boyz II Men, Usher, Coolio, En Vogue, Rosie Gaines, Brand New Heavies, Mark Morrison and more.

So check out this amazing little UKG mixtape from the legends Wookie and Matt Jam.
