The garage legend Wookie comes to Leamington Spa alongside exciting rising DJ Jossy Mitsu.
Matt Jam Lamont
We’ve come full circuit:
Another term - another SWITCH.
SWITCH 027 is dedicated to one of the pillars of UK dance music; the unanimously cherished shuffling beats of our very own UK garage, with appearances from some of the scene’s most esteemed guests.
WOOKIE: Another innovator, Wookie is truly a UKG heavyweight, whose influence has cemented him as an intrinsic part of the genre’s history. His signature production extends further than garage, reaching out to live musicians for a soulful infusion of guitars, live strings and often Latin-tinged recordings to contrast the electric, establishing him his own unique niche. With a horde of underground club classics, chart entries and awards to his name, Wookie is one of the most celebrated producers to emerge from the UK underground scene.
MATT JAM LAMONT: DJ, producer and a pioneer among the UK club scene, he played a major hand in spearheading the spark - and subsequent blaze - of UK garage in the mid-90s. Matt was front and centre, carving out his place as a well established player and one half of the Tuff Jam duo; their remixes, production and subsequent commercial success further shaping UKG and rooting them firmly as figureheads of the movement. Studio success aside, Matt Jam Lamont is still out in the clubs as a DJ, galvanising crowds with a talent spanning a generation.
JOSSY MITSU: Starting off as a selector with a passion for 2-step garage picks, Jossy’s style has evolved toward darker and bassier mixes, working together newer underground gems and old school rarities. Having spent a long time with Radar Radio, she’s now back on the airwaves with a fresh residency on Rinse FM.
