Printworks London can now announce that legendary UK trio Chase & Status will be hosting a huge showcase for their highly anticipated forthcoming album: RTRN II JUNGLE
The show will take place in the Press Halls on Saturday 3rd November 2018
Joining the drum & bass legends will be guest artists including My Nu Leng, Randall, Brockie, Benny L, Special Request, Preditah, Wookie, Chimpo & many more
This will be a show not to miss, bringing in today’s finest selection of artists from the genre and an exploration of the album’s sounds, which were inspired by the trio’s trip to Jamaica, where they filmed a documentary to explore the roots of jungle music.
In May we spent a week in Kingston Jamaica, predominantly at Big Yard studio. We went there with Seani B to record tracks from our new album RTRN II JUNGLE. What we wanted to do was to create authentic, new, Jungle – and go to the source; where the culture and all the inspiration came from.”
A huge moment for the trio, RTRN II JUNGLE marks fifteen years since the group started releasing music and touring the world. With this land-mark moment in mind, Chase and Status have gone back to their roots and their passion – Jungle music. The genre that sculpted their career in the 90’s is back, and will be re-crafted in an authentic way. Instead of sampling Dancehall, the group have gone back to Jamaica – creating their own new music to sample, and forging an organic and irresistible sound.
