Wookie feat. Eliza Doolittle - The Hype
“I absolutely love this.” B. Traits, Radio 1
“Another banger from the UKG legend Wookie. Eliza Doolittle sounding effortlessly good on the vocals. Love it.” DJ Target, 1Xtra
With Wookie’s debut release, the seminal ‘Battle’ and his underground sensation ‘Scrappy’, plus his remix of Sia’s ‘Little Man’, Wookie quickly emerged as the figurehead of the UK Garage scene.
So it’s no surprise that the current resurgence in bass-lead, funk inflected hit records has found the East London resident being name checked by the likes of Disclosure and Rudimental.
Wookie’s production CV reads like a who’s who of r&b infused hit records having produced and remixed the likes of Jessie J, Rizzle Kicks, Sia, Justin Timberlake, Roll Deep and Ray Foxx.
Wookie’s latest single ‘The Hype’ features the vocals and writing talents of Eliza Doolittle, who most recently ambushed the airwaves and charts with her Disclosure collaboration ‘You & Me’.
As Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJ MistaJam says, “Wookie is so back on form, it's like he never left. ‘The Hype’ oozes class."
The Hype will be released September 15th.
