2013 is shaping up to be an awesome year for dance music, especially for albums that attempt to bridge the gap between not only the mainstream music industry and dance music, but the more pop/mainstream side of EDM and the dance music community. Seeing Chase & Status grow from a production duo out of London, making huge snarling dancefloor drum & bass through their evolution into more calmer tones, through their use of dubstep and UK bass music into producing for worldwide pop acts like Rihanna, their trek has been an astonishing one. The little dnb group that could. This year, Chase & Status has positioned themselves to splinter off into new territory, and while their dates on the Rock The Bells tour were cut due to the tour’s cancellation, their new album Brand New Machine has features that could draw in newcomers who are into Major Lazer or Pusha T but aren’t up on Chase & Status’ history.
To further educate and celebrate their feats as producers, remixers, label heads, and live performers, DAD is celebrating with a special Chase & Status week this week to coincide with the release of Brand New Machine. We’ll not only be bringing you some exclusive video interviews, but you’ll be getting hit with Chase & Status’ essential tracks, a look at their MTA imprint, and so much more. If you didn’t know this duo before, prepare to know them now. As per usual, look for the “Chase & Status Week” tag for all related content.
