International jungle collective and label, Chopstick Dubplate have kick-started the ragga jungle revival.

With firm roots in both studio and bashment traditions, Chopstick looks to the future, combining classic with new, where foundation dub techniques and reggae motifs meet modern jungle for a fresh twist on sound system culture.

Expect plenty of wicked dubs from original Chopstick vocalist Demolition Man.
