Chase & Status Bring Kingston & London To Avant Gardner On November 1 + Release RTRN II Jungle Originals
its been a banner year for legendary drum & bass duo Chase & Status. Fresh off of the release of their critically acclaimed new album, RTRN II JUNGLE, the London natives along with the notorious MC Rage have conquered the world in the name of Jungle. With authentic stylings from Kingston, Jamaica, Chase & Status have set the entire dance music world alight from Shambhala to Notting Hill Carnival and everywhere in between. Now the drum & bass innovators are returning to New York when they take over The Kings Hall on November 1st!
For this album the group spent a week in Jamaica to record with local artists and create new, authentic jungle from the source. They created original dancehall tracks and then sampled them to produce their album, just as the first generation of jungle DJs worked with older Jamaican dancehall records, updating the iconic UK genre with a 2019 twist. The original tracks are out now as single EP RTRN II Jungle Originals. We included Chase & Status’ performance at The Village this year as one of our Remarkable Moments Of Magic at this year’s Shambhala Music Festival 22nd Anniversary. There’s no denying the electrifying and infectious energy that this supergroup possess and all true junglists will surely be in attendance for this landmark event. Check out the duo’s remix of Shy FX’s classic track “Orignial Nuttah” as well as the release of RTRN II Jungle Originals.
