About this item
Brand new 12 track album. A huge moment for the trio, RTRN II JUNGLE marks fifteen years since the group started releasing music and touring the world. With this landmark moment in mind, Chase and Status have gone back to their roots and their passion - Jungle music. The genre that sculpted their career in the 90’s is back, and will be re-crafted in an authentic way.
Instead of sampling Dancehall, the group have gone back to Jamaica - creating their own new music to sample, and forging an organic and irresistible sound. UK DnB legends, Chase and Status are looking to inspire a cultural movement; bringing back British music and fashion of the golden years of Jungle music from the mid-late 90’s. The sound, project and accompanying documentary and installation, draw on Jungle music whilst also transporting it into the present day, and re-vamping the genre for the modern day music fan.
“Now is time to look forward to the future - we want to create and spearhead a new cultural movement.” [Saul Milton] Through periods of social and economic downturn, great music and fashion is made, and in the past year, the UK has seen a throwback to the 90’s hey day. “We will be representing DnB at it’s most soulful, raw, and uncut level.” [Will Kennard]
