Chase & Status have been hailed as being the most exciting producers in the UK today. Multi-award winning, platinum record selling producers, writers and musicians, these lads are two good friends from London who started up their own label, MTA Records, in Manchester. Seeing a Chase & Status concert is a lot like going to the best electronic music rave you could imagine. With the two DJing and singing, along with backup on drums and beats, every moment is filled with pulsating sounds and excitement. If you’re lucky enough to score a ticket to a tour or shows at Future Music Festival in Australia, you’ll get to experience the incendiary action for yourself. Their newest album Brand New Machine released in October 2013 and peaked at No. 2 on the UK Albums chart.
The two met at Manchester University in the mid-1990s and bonded over their mutual love of drum and bass music. They began DJing as a team, then started producing tracks for underground artists and for popular mainstream artists, including Rihanna and Rita Ora, soon after. Their albums have been packed with the kind of drum and bass dubstep action that has gained them critical laudation for years. “Pieces,” one of their recent hits, which features Plan B, and “Against All Odds,” featuring Kano, have both seen lots of recent airplay. Snoop Dogg samples one of their tracks from the Eastern Jam album for his song, “Snoop Dogg Millionaire.” With the amount of work these guys are able to accomplish, it's hard to believe they have time to tour on top of it all! They are fan-pleasers above all else, though, which is why thousands flock to each and every one of their legendary live shows.
