SATURDAY 23RD APRIL @ THE TUBE will see a night of UK Garage from WOOKIE.
We must first say that there have been some upheavals surrounding this event – with great regret we had to announce that our previously booked headliner, TODD EDWARDS, can no longer perform due a serious health issue. All of his forthcoming European dates have had to be cancelled, and he will spend the next few months recuperating – you can keep up to date with him on his Facebook Fan Page. We wish Todd all the best and fully intend on bringing him back to Brighton in the near future.
HOWEVER, all is not lost – we were very excited to bring a UK Garage legend to Brighton, and that is exactly what we are still going to do. We are pleased to say that WOOKIE will be stepping in to keep the night going!
One of the most legendary Garage and House Producers this country has produced, Wookie joins the dots between the two genres with undeniable finesse and lightness of touch. During the 90’s he began to integrate his sound into the scene with his legendary bootleg remixes, steadily picking up plays all over the country and paving the way for things to come. By the turn of the century, Wookie was regarded as one of the key players on the emerging Garage scene, receiving endless praise for his original UK sound and achieving international success when his debut album, the self-titled ‘Wookie’, received critical acclaim worldwide.
The gospel-tinged, jump-up R&B styles of ‘Battle’ – aguably Wookie’s most well known track – remains one of the finest Garage tunes of our time. Check it out below:
Supporting Wookie will be LIL KRIS and PASTE, and to further compensate for any disappointment regarding Todd Edwards we are offering FREE ENTRY BEFORE 12AM.
