On WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2018, STUNNA presents another special installment of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this broadcast, we're treated to an exclusive guest mix from producer and DJ on the rise CHUG, as he makes his 'GREENROOM' debut.
Beginning his musical journey as a DJ two decades ago in NORWICH, UK, CHUG (aka ROB CHUNG) was initially inspired by TIM WESTWOOD’s infamous BBC RADIO 1 Rap show, and immersed himself buying U.S. Hip-Hop. However, after the launch of local pirate station Flight 100 FM, he was exposed to the sounds of UK GARAGE and DRUM+BASS. As a punter, his first memorable raves were URBAN TAKEOVER with MICKEY FINN and APHRODITE, and the MOVING SHADOW tour with EZ ROLLERS and DOM AND ROLAND, both at the UEA LCR. Whilst at school, he got his first gig on the Sunday UK GARAGE scene, after which he moved to LONDON and started playing on the university circuit and beyond.
CHUG has performed at venues such as THE EGG, SE1, GRAMOPHONE, MINISTRY OF SOUND, CLUB AQUARIUM, 93 FEET EAST, RHYTHM FACTORY and THE MARKETPLACE. Playing for promoters such as THE VINYL TOUCH, STUN LONDON, and TRAFFIC, CHUG has graced the decks on lineups with artists such as ADAM F, ANDY C, AQUASKY, ARTFUL DODGER, A-SIDES, BREAKAGE, BRYAN G, COMMIX, DEVIOUS D, DIGITAL, DJ DIE, DJ HYPE, DR S GACHET, ELLIS DEE, EZ ROLLERS, INFLUX UK, J MAJIK, NERO, NICKY BLACKMARKET, RAY KEITH, SCRATCH PERVERTS, SHUT UP AND DANCE, STORM, TEEBEE, BASSLINE, DET, DYNAMITE MC, ESKMAN, LOWQUI, MESSY MC, NAVIGATOR, and SHABBA D. He currently co-promotes a club night, "ELEMENTS," in east LONDON, playing the full spectrum of DRUM+BASS music.
Influenced by the SOUL, FUNK, and JAZZ samples that defined the BOOM BAP sound, CHUG started dabbling in D+B production in 2010. In 2017, he got his first release on SCOTT ALLEN’s L.A.-based SOUL DEEP RECRODINGS imprint. 2018 has seen two remixes released on the acclaimed label TRU-THOUGHTS, releases on HEIST’s CO-LAB RECORDINGS, and WASHINGTON, D.C./NORTHAMPTON, UK label SMOOTH N GROOVE RECORDS imprint. His debut EP, entitled 'HOLDING ON' recently dropped this month on SMOOTH N GROOVE and has thus far received early critical acclaim. Looking ahead to 2019, CHUG has more releases scheduled with CO-LAB and their sister labels PURE-VIBES and the LIQUID-LAB.
Join us this session as CHUG graces 'THE GREENROOM' with a special guest mix featuring his own productions alongside some of his favorite tracks from around the globe. Tune in!!
