10 tracks that inspired their hit new album...
“We are transporting jungle into the future – this is a cultural movement”, the group state. And boy are they ready to bring their renowned sound into 2019. After 15 years in the game, Chase & Status have collaborated with some of old school jungle’s finest and modern dancehall’s biggest vocalists to create a brand new vibe for the new age. Featuring the likes of Suku, General Levy, Irah, Natty Campbell, Kabaka Pyramid, Masicka, Cutty Ranks, Burro Banton and New Kidz, they have delivered a superb new collection of irresistible tunes, entitled RTRN II Jungle.
Hot off the back of the long awaited return of the trio, the three iconic tastemakers have granted us a sneak preview into how they work. Curating a 10 track playlist for HUNGER, you can have a behind the scenes look at the inspiration and influences behind their latest creation.
“It’s been a lot of fun making RTRN II Jungle and this playlist is a good snapshot of music old and new that inspires us. This has been the regular playlist in the car for a while now going from legends like SuperCat to homegrown heroes like Gappy & Irah.” – Chase & Status
