Chase and Status – electronic duo from London
Chase and Status is a British electronic duo, which consists of Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status). They started working as producers in 2004. The first release by Chase and Status was a remix to "Future Cut 20/20", created with the assistance of Renegade Hardware. Then they recorded such popular tracks as "Hoodrat", "Iron Fist" and "Love’s Theme" with the assistance of such labels as Habit, BC Presents, and Bingo. Both musicians got support from popular artists such as Pendulum, Friction, Andy C, Mampi Swift, and Bad Company, who played the duo’s tracks on the radio.
The group was closely following changes in drum and bass music style. In February 2005, they presented a studio mix at DnB Arena and then got an invitation to 1Xtra radio. The same year, musicians recorded such popular tracks as "Menace", "Barbarians", and "Glitch" with the support of Renegade Hardware. The two artists also presented a new hit, “Duppyman”, recorded with Capleton. Then they released “Top Shotta” with Roll Deep. At that time, many clubs started trying to book Chase and Status for private events.
In 2007, the duo presented a new track “Hurt You”. The hit “Take Me Away” appeared a year later. Both songs topped British charts. In October 2008, musicians conquered the 70th spot of the UK Single Chart and topped Dance Chart with their single “Pieces”, recorded with Plan B. The same year, they presented a debut LP, More Than Alot, which reached the 49th spot of the UK Albums Chart. Next year, the LP brought them a Drum And Bass Award as Best Album.
