How many producers can count Jay Z, Snoop Dogg and Pharrell as fans, enjoy heavy rotation in the hands of dubstep royalty such as N-Type and Skream; and have each release enthusiastically supported by Annie Mac and Zane Lowe? This is what Saul Milton and Will Kennard, producing under the name Chase and Status, have achieved in just 5 years. They have remixed tracks by some of the world's hottest artists including Jay Z's 'Death Of Auto-Tune' and The Prodigy's 'Invaders Must Die'. They have also been involved in some fantastic productions, most significantly with Rihanna who has been quoted as calling the pair 'the backbone' of her fourth studio album 'Rated R'.
Chase and Status’ debut album ‘More Than Alot’ was released 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. Their second album ‘No More Idols’ debuted at number two in the UK album charts, and bore them their first top ten single with ‘End Credits’ featuring Plan B which also earned them the 'Q' 2010 Award for Best Video. In October 2013, their third album 'Brand New Machine' was released, which gave them a Top 10 single - Lost & Not Found ft. Louis M^ttrs - and a Top 5 single - Count on Me ft. Moko.
