CHASE & STATUS

Will and Saul met in London through their mutual love of drum and bass in the mid nineties before later cementing their friendship by Dj’ing together at Manchester University. 2004 saw their first production, a remix for Future Cut which was followed by a series of drum and bass anthems for the biggest underground labels including ‘Duppy Man’ for Breakbeat Kaos and ‘The Druids’ EP for DJ Zinc’s trendsetting Bingo label. Despite a high volume of releases on Ram Records and constant DJ’ing around the world, Chase & Status managed to mastermind and release their debut album ‘More Than A Lot’ in 2008. Packed with the kind of drum and bass anthems that have helped build their reputation, it also features tracks which show the diversity of their work: such as ‘Pieces’ featuring Plan B and the Radio 1 A-List single ‘Against All Odds’ featuring Kano. The album is a thrilling journey through the UK urban scene and truly deserves its title. One track from the album, ‘Eastern Jam’ was even spotted by Snoop Dogg who newly released it in April 2009 as ‘Snoop Dogg Millionaire’.
