Chase & Status will also be releasing a limited 500 edition vinyl release, with 4 x 7” vinyl’s as a package.
Speaking on the project, Saul Milton from the group states: “In May 2018 we went to Kingston, Jamaica to Big Yard Studios to record vocals for RTRN II JUNGLE. What we wanted to do was make authentic jungle, like it would haven in the early 90’s but rather than sample records, that have been sampled many times before, we decided to make our own dancehall riddims and songs which we would then sample, and become much of the body of work for 'RTRN II JUNGLE.' So the 'Originals' EP is exactly that - 6 tracks in their original form that were made in London and Jamaica. Originals is also available on limited edition 7” vinyl. We’re very proud to present 'RTRN II JUNGLE - The Originals.'"
