Vocal Hooked UK Garage Classic Repressed on White Vinyl - Released at the turn of the millennium and bringing a completely fresh style to the table, Wookie's immense 'Down On Me / Scrappy' double header has punched it's way out of the UKG underground and passed into the history books as a bonafide electronic classic. Period. Showing a sophisticated ear, and complex musical arrangements, this 12" blows the competition away with soulful minimalism and proper musicianship. Don't get it twisted though - this is a straight club record that will set it off, 2 back to back bangers in one place. This one will tear any dance down when dropped in the correct manner. It's hard, and almost pointless to try and pick a 'favourite', both of these tunes are primed to damage and still sound like they were beamed down only a few hours ago. Yes - it is that fresh, still.
Now - 20 something years later - 'Down On Me / Scrappy' is back, and believe, you need a copy of this in your bag. Peerless futuristic pressure from London town, essential in every way. Repressed and re-released on crisp white wax courtesy of Manchu Recordings and Above Board distribution, fully legit and not ready to quit anytime soon.

If you recognise beats of The Wookie (aka Jason Chue) it's because he has been responsible for some of most well known and reused beats of the early 90's - from his days in the Soul II Soul soundsystem.
Having being very quiet and relativley unknown since then, he re-emerged inside the UK Garage scene as The Wookie (Chue - gettit ?) with a fresh unique sound, influenced by the 2-step rhythms of the day.
His compositions remained special, having a slightly more polished sound than his peers. With vocalist Lain, he enjoyed chart success with his piece Battle, despite dance music being firmly on the wane at the time in 2000.
