jason chue aka wookie's hit ‘battle’ put him in the same league as other uk garage stars artful dodger and mj cole. wookie was influenced by his father’s reggae sound-system. the young jason wanted to be an architect. but instead he ended up as assistant in jazzy b’s soul2soul studio in the beginning of the nineties. bored by schmaltzy r’n’b and monotonic drum’n’base sounds, wookie settled with uk garage. the turbulences and the night-long studio sessions have their disadvantages: his girl-friend left him because of it. wookie has produced at least one single almost every year since 1999 with contributions from singers xavier, nyomi gray and rapper lain.
