With innovative production and an unforgettable live show, Chase and Status have made their claim in the drum and bass world.
The eclectic UK duo has two full-length albums under their belt that are absolutely dense with hits. Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status) met in Manchester while attending school, and Chase and Status formed in 2003 when the two dropped out to pursue music careers. They have since collaborated with Rihanna, Cee Lo Green, Sub Focus and Example, in addition to producing numerous chart-topping tracks.
Their first full-length album More Than A Lot dropped in 2008, which entered the U.K. dance charts at number two. Hits included “Eastern Jam,” “Against All Odds” and “Pieces” featuring Plan B, a U.K.-based artist who has worked closely with the two doing vocals for tracks.
They released No More Idols in 2009, and the first single “End Credits” also featured Ben Drew, AKA Plan B, and his raw vocal accompaniment. The track reached number 9 on the U.K. Singles chart. “Let You Go” and “Hypest Hype” rounded out the sophomore album, allowing it to debut at number two in the U.K. and reach gold status within the first week.
A forthcoming album from Chase and Status is due to be released in 2012 and has been rumored to offer a darker sound than the previous two.
