CHASE AND STATUS 'LOST AND NOT FOUND' WON BEST INVENTIVE SINGLE 2013 SPONSORED BY PACK LONDON
Chase and Status have had an incredible year so far. They headlined The Other Stage at Glastonbury in June, played a storming, riotous set at Reading and Leeds in August and last week released their third album Brand New Machine, which stormed into the charts and debuted at #2.
Current single Count On Me, featuring Moko, was a fan favourite at festivals throughout Europe this summer and broke into the Top 5 of the Official UK charts on release a fortnight ago. Chase and Status’ great year is set to continue, with their current arena tour and next single Alive, featuring Jacob Banks, out 9th December.
Always keen to discover and promote new upcoming talent, Brand New Machine features a raft of rising stars and underground names. Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status) are extremely passionate about finding and nurturing new artists and despite receiving a vast amount of requests to feature from all the big names, they opted for working with emerging new talent including Moko, Elli Ingram, Knytro, Abigail Wyles, Ed Thomas, Jacob Banks and more. The album also plays host to collaborations with the legendary Nile Rogers as well as US rapper Pusha T. Brand New Machine gives a nod to the 90’s rave era which inspired Chase and Status and showcases the duo’s talent to write songs that charge through the boundaries of dance music, and cross over into everyone’s consciousness.
Chase and Status, along with their live band MC Rage and Andy Gangadeen, are currently out on their first UK Arena tour, which kicked off at the NIA in Nottingham on 31st October and culminates with a massive homecoming show at London's 02 Arena on the 16th November. They will be joined by stellar support acts on the tour; the immensely talented Moko, who has just signed to the band's label MTA Records and featured on single Count On Me; legendary Clipse rapper Pusha T, who also features on Brand New Machine and finally, bringing his critically acclaimed Live show, Belgian super producer Netsky.
