Artum presents: Wookie

WOOKIE RETURNS 2024

One of our favourite UKG legends Wookie makes his 2024 return in our newly refurbished space.

Chue’s career began in 1991 as a producer for UK R&B/reggae artist Wayne Marshall, producing most of Marshall’s debut album¬†90 Degrees and Rising in 1994. Shortly after, Chue became writer/producer for Soul II Soul at their studio, working with Jazzie B for several years. He would also go on to produce for Dynamite MC and Doom Man.

Chue has remixed tracks by Destiny’s Child, Public Enemy and Nas, among others. In the late 1990s, the ‘Wookie sound’ became apparent in his bootleg mixes of songs by Whitney Houston, Brandy and Debelah Morgan.

One of the original innovators of UK garage, Wookie scored a huge underground club hit in 1999 with “Scrappy”. Also in that year, he released his first official remix of the Gabrielle song “Sunshine”, under the name ‘Wookie’. Another hit remix was released in 2000 under the alias Exemen, of Sia’s song “Little Man”. Wookie scored his first UK top 10 hit single in 2000 with “Battle”. Two of his other songs, “What’s Going On” and “Back Up (To Me)” also made the UK charts. His self-titled debut album was also released in 2000.

Wookie has reproduced tracks for artists such as Jessie J, Rizzle Kicks, Sia, Justin Timberlake, Roll Deep, Ray Foxx, and many others.
